evanston definitely has some of that element to it, especially over by the lakefront mansions (where homes are routinely in 7-figure land), but evanston is also home to a much wider diversity of people and incomes, and is much more densely populated and urban, than a more stereotypical north shore burb like winnetka.

i feel that writing off evanston as just another ritzy north shore burb is more than a bit disingenuous. it's FAR more real and regular and city-like than the burbs to the north of it.

and being home to one of the top 10 universities in the nation (Northwestern) also brings a youthful vibe and energy to evanston that you won't find anywhere to the north either.
This one has purple in it. Purple is a fruit.
