    that I have talked to are trying to get used to all the new housing going up, particularly in the area on Chicago Ave. just north of South Blvd.

    Now I've really only been a resident of Evanston for a few years, but there are longtime Evanstonians that that talk about all the changes downtown...and there's quite a few empty storefronts downtown as well.

    Yes, in Rogers Park there have been a lot of changes, although I have to say that those changes seem to have slowed down in the past 5 years or so and they seem limited now to the area around my alma mater, Loyola University (and boy...has that campus changed and I went there from 2003-2006).
