Meet Chicago


Once the fastest growing metro areas in the world, Chicago is now the 3rd largest city in the US. And while its turbulent political scene is the inspiration for Chicago’s famous nickname, this city is proud to be the foundation for America’s first African American president.

Chicago boasts a few other impressive firsts – the first comprehensive sewer system in the United States, America’s first LGBTQ rights organization, the world’s first controlled nuclear reaction, the world’s first skyscraper, and the world’s first ferris wheel.

In our experience, Chicagoans are beloved for their fierce hometown pride. It’s not an “our city is better than yours” spirit – Chicago is home to too much winter weather and too many improv troupes to be snobbish. Rather Chicago residents are simply happy to be where they are – somewhere between a snowbank, Wrigley field and a deep dish of pizza.

Megan Hannay was also helpful in finalizing the details. We look forward to a long relationship with ZipSprout and hope to receive more matches in the future!
