Marktown, East Chicago is worth a visit. Only a few blocks remain of this planned community for steel workers, and it is surrounded on every side by steel mill. It could be Pullman-esque if more people actually wanted to live there, but otherwise there’s nothing else quite like it around these parts.

And I will confess that East Chicago is arguably not a suburb of Chicago.
