The cities of Cleveland and Chicago are located on the shores of two of the Great Lakes - Erie and Michigan. Both cities are popular places to live. However, people often decide to move from Cleveland to Chicago to try their hands at a new place.
Cleveland is not the capital of the State of Ohio but it is, however, the center of the largest metropolitan area in the state that bears the name 'Greater Cleveland'. Most often Cleveland metropolitan area is estimated at 2.25 million people, which allows it to be the largest metropolitan areas in Ohio and 23rd in the whole United States. The city itself is home to about half a million people. household
Chicago on the other hand is a huge metropolis in northern Illinois, the largest transportation hub and financial center in North America and home to 3 million people. A huge sprawling area has grown around the city, which includes the city Joliet, Naperville and several other settlements of Illinois and neighboring Wisconsin and Indiana. In total, the Chicago metropolitan area is home to about 9.5 million people. Residents of the area call it Chicagoland. And why do so many people want to live in this urbanized mass? Well the answer is pretty simple: Stunning vistas, fantastic opportunities, easy place to get to and from and great educational facilities meaning your family will have a bright future.
Relocation from Cleveland to Chicago to get an education is the primary reason for families and young people. In Chicago, there are many universities and colleges, the most famous of which are the Northwestern University, University of Chicago, DePaul University, Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Illinois, Chicago. The decision about moving from Cleveland to Chicago is not lead only by the rich choice of educational institutions, but also the quality of the education. But what indicates the quality of education is better than the universities of other places? You may ask. Well, University of Chicago gave rise to Gabriel Almond, a specialist in the field of theoretical and comparative politics; Herbert Brown, winner of the Nobel Prize in chemistry, which he received for the development of new methods for the synthesis of complex organic boron and phosphorus compounds; James Watson, one of the scientists who discovered the molecular structure of DNA. And do you know a man named Paul Ekman? Well his real life work is often referenced in the popular TV series "Lie to me". He is an expert in the psychology of emotions, interpersonal communication, psychology and the "recognition of lies".
A graduate of the Illinois Institute of Technology is Valdas Adamkus, the former President of the Republic of Lithuania; Martin Cooper, an engineer and physicist, known around the world as the man who made the first call on a cell phone. But few people remember exactly who he phoned. Martin called to the engineering department of a competitor. When the head of the department picked up the phone, he heard Cooper’s voice say "Guess how I'm calling? I'm calling you with a real cell phone." Martin Cooper subsequently recalled "I do not remember what he had said, but, you know, I thought I heard the creak of his teeth". Jack Steinberger also studied at Chicago. He received the Nobel Prize in physics for the discovery and study of neutrinos and antineutrinos. So with this long list of achievements it is easy to see why people are from to the schools and educational facilities here.
For those people who want to make a career in sports or just avid fans often head from Cleveland to Chicago to train or watch matches. Chicago just happens to be one of the most sporting cities in the US. The Windy City is known for its clubs in the major leagues of the most popular sport in the United States. Let me give you an idea of what I mean: The Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox baseball teams, the Chicago Bulls basketball team, for hockey there is the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Bears bringing home the glory for football fans.
The outstanding basketball player, two-time Olympic champion and former NBA player Michael Jordan played for the Chicago Bulls for many seasons. At the end of 1993, when Jordan first announced his retirement, the owner of The Chicago Bulls decided to install a sculpture in his honor at the entrance to the new stadium. The sculpture was designed to be dynamic and capture Michael as he was in the game. Now the monument in honor of Michael Jordan is one of the top attractions in Chicago.
So it is fair to say that Chicago has a lot to offer and it is easy to see why so many people are making the move here, not just from Cleveland to Chicago but from all over the States. Don't forget that it is more than a city of sports and education. With amazing scenery around the city and along the coast you will find that once you live in this beautiful part of the world you will never want to move anywhere else.
