John Hughes' "Reach the Rock" was filmed in downtown West Chicago. Also...sorry, what were we talking about? We got lost thinking about John Hughes.
West Chicago is a small city with just over 27,000 people. It's a nice place to live with plenty of economic opportunity both in West Chicago and nearby Chicago-proper. Known mostly for its small town and friendly atmosphere, this is an old railroad town that got its start from the settlers who remained after the railroad camps moved on west.

Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for West Chicago renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
