Hi, I'm writing a novel partly set in Chicago. My character owns a supermarket and I need a good location for it. I need it to be in a good, safe part of the city, but not too upscale--he isn't super rich.

Can anyone help me out? Street names would be appreciated. Thanks very much!

Dan-dee Foods ( made u name: there was a small supermarket there by a different name, Dan-dee wa a hot dog stand in the next block 50 years ago), Devon and Oakley . It would be on the north side of the city, formerly a Jewish neighborhood but largely Indian for the last 25 years. Very mixed with other ethnic groups including observant Jews, some Muslim immigrants from the Caspian Sea region (Armenia, some of the -stan's,Iranians,etc) a smattering of blacks, maybe some Hispanics.Neighborhood is called Rogers Park

He would own 2 more stores: one near Foster and Milwaukee and one on Northwest Highway just south of Touhy on the City's far NW edge, close to O'Hare Airport, bordering Park Ridge. This neighborhood would be Edison Park. Mostly white up there, lots of Polish and other Eastern European people.

You're welcome.
