The 10 Worst Chicago Suburbs

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - The City of Chicago has become an icon to the world, but what about the suburbs that surround the Windy City?

RoadSnacks has put together the 10 worst Chicago suburbs based on the following: "To figure out how bad a place is to live in, we only needed to know what kinds of things people like and then decide what cities have the least amount of those things.

We don’t think it’s a stretch to assume that people like the following things:
• Good education
• Lots of jobs
• Low crime
• High incomes
• High population density (Lots of things to do)
• Nice homes

Then, we ranked the list based on places that are the worst in all of these categories that have over 5,000 people around Chicago."
