Want to know what it's like to retire in Evanston?
I have lived in Evanston since 1962 when I came here to attend NU, and I never left. I am a speech/language pathologist by profession. I was married for 41 years, but I have been a widow for the past 7 years. I have one biological son, two step kids and four grandchildren.
Northwestern University initially appealed to me, and I fell in love with the town after that.
Evanston is not necessarily affordable to all, and seems to be becoming less so.
Mainly, that I would never leave.
I have grown roots here, and would miss just about everything!
