Changes from 2017 to 2018 for the Chicago MSA in foreign born population, by region of the world:

1. Eastern Asia: +7569 people
2. South Central Asia: +7052 people
3. South Eastern Asia: +6288 people
4. Middle Africa: +2194 people
5. Northern Europe: +2154 people
6. Western Africa: +219 people
7. Australia/New Zealand: -470 people
8. Southern Africa: -692 people
9. Caribbean: -1249 people
10. Western Asia: -1312 people
11. Eastern Africa: -1559 people
12. Southern Europe: -2049 people
13. Western Europe: -2195 people
14. Northern Africa: -4842 people
15. Eastern Europe: -14,835 people

By continents:
1. Asia: +22,139 people
2. Northern America: +1516 people
3. Oceania: -954 people
4. South America: -2776 people
5. Africa: -5124 people
6. Europe: -18,230 people
7. Central America: -35,127 people (I know not a continent but still)


So basically, the gains from Asia and Northern America are offset by the losses of Europe and Africa. Big difference here comes from Central America and the big loss of especially people born in Mexico.

It completely depends on what they are doing. If they are staying downtown and most of their activities are in and around downtown then they don't drive. If they are going in the area to places that aren't easily accessible by public transit of any type (CTA, Metra, etc) then they might rent a car.

As much as I despise unnecessary car usage, to put a blanket statement on all tourists in a place is just ridiculous. I'd say that a big percentage of tourists don't need cars, but there's definitely some who do.

And many people drive into the city from surrounding states, which is why parking is needed. Although they might not be driving around the city, they still need places to put their cars.

Change in foreign born population in the Chicago MSA from 2010 to 2018.

Very good to see those Indian numbers but wow I never knew Hispanics were moving out that much. I just thought the inflow slowed down to a trickle.

Why are we gaining with the UK but losing Poles, Irish, and Germans?

Great find on the numbers, appreciated.

Yes, I'm sure the family from Iowa on a budget vacation to Chicago is going to be paying for a valet and uber everywhere, quickly adding hundreds of dollars to their trip's expenses... do you realize how out of touch with the average American you sound?

I wish people would use public transit more, but the reality is that at least half of this country hasn't used it more than a few times in their life and would be terrified of getting lost in the proverbial "big city". You might be used to life in a city, and I know I am, but I have relatives are from the countryside who are extremely intimidated by even the prospect of going into Chicago for a day, let alone staying there for a vacation and traveling. You just sound ignorant and snooty.

^^^ Lol then they don't get to come to Chicago. The average Iowans ability to afford a valet has no bearing on whether trashing a dense, transit accessible, area with oodles of parking spaces is good urban planning.

Poles are moving out because the economy in Poland is doing as well as it has in 100 years and, due to the Euro, dollars earned in the US go an awfully long ways there. I have seen numerous elderly poles that were tenants of mine up and leave to return home and be with their families in retirement.

That and the foreign born inflows of poles tailed off 20 years ago so most people of Polish descent were born here and the now elderly foreign born are slowly dying off.

The West loop is the single hardest neighborhood in Chicago to park in right now. I am generally opposed to adding so much parking but I think the area needs more parking somehow. A highrise public garage or two could help and maybe mitigate the need for developers to add so many spaces as is the case here.

Pretty much. Also, the NYC area has lost over 15,000 Polish born people since 2010 as well. Percentage wise, that's a loss of 1.3% versus the 1.6% for Chicago - similar in that regard.

In order for the West Loop to become a destination—which it already is, like it or not, it has to have at least some more off street parking. A few big garages wouldn’t hurt.

The transit element will always be there. Uber/Lyft, etc etc will always be needed. It’s about multimodal. But you have to have some parking.

I live in the West Loop with a Fulton address. There are a number of public garages in the area that are COMPLETELY underutilized, especially on the weekend when visitors are most likely to use them. Just as an example, the public garage at Fulton and Union is always (ALWAYS!) at least half empty on nights and weekends. My family from out of state and local Chicago friends visiting me always use this garage, and not a single time has it been a problem in 8 years.

Parking in the West Loop is all over the place, IF you know where to find it. I don't think it's a matter of availability, but more so an issue of knowing where to go. It's such a new neighborhood, not everyone knows where all the garages are. And the ones that do exist, admittedly, don't have great signage. Additionally, just looking at apps like SpotHero or ParqEx, there are tons of spots all over up for grabs.

But, if you just have to park on Randolph, on the very same block as the restaurant you're visiting ... good luck. I know some people are unable to walk far due to medical conditions, etc. as my mom is one of them. But it's really not hard at all to find reasonable parking within a 10 minute walk of most places. If 10 minutes is too far, park close and Uber/taxi the rest of the way for $5.

My apologies for the rant, but the last thing the West Loop needs is more parking that goes underutilized 90%+ of the time.

No. Underground, maybe. None of the nation's most successful/productive urban places got that way through parking.

Maybe you should go to that forum is you can't handle being told that providing parking, which destroys the city for residents, just so visitors can feel more at home with their transportation choices is rediculous.

I think there is an argument that parking is tighter a little farther west but yea everything that went up in the last 15 years with a parking garage is underutilized, especially nights and weekends. I lived in the area for a number of years and worked there for over a decade. Paid parking is still very available within a couple blocks of a given destination and all the office buildings going up have parking that sits empty when hotels and restaurants are full that can and is being used for valet operations if a person absolutely has to get out of their car right in front of the destination.

The idea of adding high rise stand alone structured parking is insane and not at all required. I'm also not inclined to require hotels to include any parking whatsoever, as long as they can secure valet space in underutilized lots/structures which are abundant, just to placate condo owners perceptions.

Hardly my issue with your disposition... I don't want there to be parking lots, podiums and garages everywhere. You lack tact, arrogance, ignorance, snootiness, classism and pride of such putrid beliefs are what have done me in here. Anyway, I'm out.

I drive to chicago every year but I NEVER take my car into downtown. This year I dumped it off at a Park & Ride out by Ohare and took the blue line in. Saved $200 and a ton of frustration.

Millions of people in the UK live in places where a car is necessary to get around, but very few are stupid enough to drive when they visit central London. Park it at a Metra station on the outskirts and take the train into town.

It's now arrogance to flatly state that "Famlies from Iowa have no right to avoid valet at the expense of Chicagoans"...

Got it...

FYI, my inlaws are all from Iowa, so I actually deal with this exact scenario IRL.
