About Chicago

Sizing at 600,000 hectares, Chicago is the state’s third biggest city and home to an estimated 3 million people. It serves as America’s crossroads being a hub for railway and air travel, thanks to its critical location on the coast of Lake Michigan. About 7,000 acres of land are dedicated to green spaces and the city has 500 parks for its citizens and tourists to enjoy. The term “jazz” was created here back in 1914 and today the city has over 250 places to enjoy concerts and other performances.

If you want to experience all that the city’s cuisine has to offer, attend The Taste of Chicago, which is one of the world’s biggest food festivals that brings in a million visitors from near and far. Both the Twinkie and the hot dog were created in this city, and with such a successful and creative population this is the perfect location for a Chicago video studio space.

Video Studio Space Options in Chicago

  • Costumes and Makeup

Pros and Cons of Video Studio Spaces in Chicago

A big city like this one is full of great things like beautiful parks and performance spaces, which means a video studio space in Chicago would fit in perfectly. However, every city has its flaws and it is important to be aware of the disadvantages you’ll want to accommodate for.

Advantages

  • Great food
    Although Chicago has your average city food like pizza, burgers and hot dogs, you can also find other types of local cuisine. You can dine at different fancy or casual restaurants depending on what kind of meal you are looking for and what your budget is.

  • Easily accessible
    Chicago is a big transportation hub and the easy accessibility that comes from this is great. The O’Hare International Airport is a major aviation center that often serves as a connection between different cities. If you travel a lot, the simplicity of getting anywhere from Chicago is definitely a bonus.

  • Good public transit services
    Although the city is busy and has lots of citizens and tourists, it does well with its public transportation services. There are enough buses and metro systems in the city to make it a better option than driving and helps to reduce the amount of congestion on the roads too.

Disadvantages

  • Expensive
    Once you spend some time in Chicago you will notice that things are more expensive here. The property tax in all of Illinois is high and sales tax is above the national average as well. This means things like renting a venue and buying supplies can be more expensive in this city, so have a budget to work with.

  • Parking is a nightmare
    Parking in most big cities can be difficult but Chicago takes it to a whole other level. Here you can find something called the dibs system which is where people will place furniture like garbage bins in their parking spots to reserve them. This just shows how frustrating finding somewhere to park can be in Chicago.

  • Inequity
    There is a certain divide between the rich and poor populations of Chicago which can cause tension in some neighborhoods. This can lead to gang activity and related problems like drug dealing and violent crime, which is something to look out for.

Famous Locations in Chicago

  • Museum of Science and Industry
    Found on the northern side of Jackson Park, this establishment was built in 1933 and is one of the city’s best museums. You can find educational exhibits related to the laws of natural science, technology and industrial development at the Museum of Science and Industry and it is known to be one of the first places where hands-on interactive exhibits were introduced.

  • Lincoln Park
    The six-mile stretch that makes up Lincoln Park is home to several family fun attractions and outdoor activities. In this one area, you can visit the Lincoln Park Zoo, Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Chicago History Museum and the Lincoln Park Conservatory. The area also has beaches, jogging paths and a field where you can play games and sports.

  • The Rookery Building
    The Rookery Building in Chicago was designed in 1888 by Daniel Burham and John Root but it was later remodeled by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1907. It is 12 stories high and displays some of the city’s most impressive architecture and detailing. A group of pigeons is often seen near the building, which is where it received its name.
