Chicago is one of the best cities in the country to live and work in.  The University of Illinois at Chicago is located in the historic Little Italy district.  The neighborhoods in Chicago are constantly growing and changing.  One of the newst of these neighborhoods is University Village (located near the east side of the UIC campus), a neighborhood full of housing, great shops and restaurants.
