My first instinct was to sign the lease as quickly as I could click a ballpoint pen, but then came a nagging voice in the back of my head. "What would people think if I moved to Pilsen from Old Irving Park?" it whispered. "Would I be perceived as trying too hard to be cool or edgy if I suddenly fled to the so-called arts district?" I suddenly wondered if I should pick a neighborhood that better fit my self-perception. Would Uptown be better for my personal brand?
