I'll post in here, since we're starting over.

My questions:

Does anyone know if there's oxygen in Chicago? I'm worried about breathing and I'm not sure if they have oxygen there or not.

Also, is English the primary language spoken in Chicago?

Take public transportation if you can. I'm taking the South Shore Line from NW Indiana...4 dollar ticket. Free parking at the train stations.

Yes, we will be right off the lake too. Very nice city Chicago is. There should be oxygen in the air lol. The steel mills to the southeast won't bother you.

At least 50. They say 30 is the minimum. Sunscreen can bite hard in Chicago during the late summer....

It's absolute shit now. The city died during the 60's and 70s. It used to be one of the biggest boom towns in America. It had over 200,000 people at its peak....a lot of people back in the day. But global competition got the best of Gary. The steel mills lost a lot of revenue. The city government lost revenue. The middle class basically moved out to surrounding suburbs.

You can see the stadium the Rail Cats play in from the highway, which I like.

It might rain. Try asking an umbrella street vendor how to get to Soldier Field from the train station.
