Here's the thing though: because the Chicago area is a major interchange point for six different major railroads (BNSF, Union Pacific, Norfolk Southern, CSX, Canadian National and Canaadian Pacific), there will always be major economic activity in the Chicago area. And Chicago's economic base is far more diverse than Detroit ever was.

Agree with your post. Friends’ daughter lives up there, even in the “rough” areas rents are very high by midwest standards.
Chicago does not have the abundance of abandoned properties like Motown.
