streator needs an interstate to be built from peoria to chi-town, right down the gut of the town. that would bring much biz here.

I was born and raised in Streator and at age 18 left to seek a career I couldn't obtain in this area. 45 years later, retired and single, I returned to my "roots". I too examined the city from an historical perspective and a current comparison cannot be made. If one desires to come to this community, do not judge it by it's content nor by it's ability to offer you that which you do not currently possess. Examine the above comments and observe the variance of opinions. Simply put, there is no black and white clarity in any community. Yes, Streator was once one of the most modern and progressive cities, not only in Illinois but in the Country! Now, what made it great has been consumed and spent long ago. This city is only a shadow of what it once was, true. However, looking for "others" to make it better reveals an apathy that is the root cause of the decay this city has experienced. While it does not have an "Interstate" highway, nor an Airport, nor large shopping malls nor other motivational lures to other communities to desire to spend their wealth here, this city is like many others with the same problem. Yet, many, manu of these cities thrive. Why? Because they have learned to be resourseful and creative and above anything else, to be self-repectable. This is the oxygen in the blood that is absent in Streator. To those who want to make a mark, to make a difference, Streator presents that opportunity.

My wife and I are thinking about moving from Oak Lawn, IL to Streator pretty soon. Do you think this is a good move, the house we want to buy is in the 300 south block of Park St, is that a good area to be in, we are concerned about crime but we love the house, should we consider the move?

I grew up in Streator and then moved to the south where I find the people to be much friendlier. Streator was a great place growing up during the 60's, 70's and 80's, but it seems that things have changed. It seems like if you don't like to spend all of your time sitting in bars, then Streator is probably not the place for you.

Wow, I am surprised that you said that. Since we are thinking about moving there, we have been inquiring from sources like the Police dept and the assessors office and all the people there could not have been nicer, even in the restaurant we had lunch in, the whole crew was very nice and tried to answer all our questions.

Wow!! I can not believe the comments about Streator!! This is amazing to me. If you don't like Streator, than move. Its people like you that give the town a bad name. I was raised in Streator and graduated from the high school. I moved when I was 20 to a bigger town with better opportunities. However, I have family and friends there and do visit when I can. There is alot of really great people in this town. The school system was great when I attended, and there is a lot of extra curricular activities for the children, if you enroll them. Yes, there is some bad apples in the town, what town doesn't have them? There are alot of things to do in the town. There is a golf course, cinemas, baseball diamonds,restaurants, city parks, swimming pool, YMCA,many different denominations of churches, and numerous areas for fishing,boating, and tubing on the Vermilion River. This town has the most spectacular 4th of July celebration around!! The fireworks and carnival are better than many of the surrounding areas. It may be a small town, but it isn't far from bigger areas. From what I remember it isn't but 15 minutes or so from three major interstates, I39, I55, and I80. This town will be what you make of it. Even with the bad apples, the police are on top of them, and make the town safe. Sure the town isn't booming like the 70's but the last time I was there it has really improved since I grew up. There are new businesses and homes sprouting up all over. In my opinion I believe Streator will be a great choice and it really needs more good people to add to its charm!!

Streator is the intersection of four dead ends, surrounded by grave yards, junk yards, dumps, quarries and corn fields. It is indeed natures perfect vacuum, black hole and the ever-present source of all antimatter in the known universe. There are no living beings there, only decades-old walking dead, half-lifes, no-lifes, zipperheads, drunks, druggies, feebs, thiefs, pompous imbeciles and morons. The only "surprise on this prairie" is the 2 by 4 mile wide dung pastry, who's only claim to fame is the fact that after 30 years of steady rot and decay ... somehow, it's STILL here?!?! Streator, Il.= circle / slash! Run Away!
