Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

Excitement is building for Chicago’s Amazon HQ2 bid and thousands of Chicagoans have announced they are All In for Amazon. Now, Chicago’s diversity, talent pool and rich culture are on full display in a new Ultimate Amazon Guide to Chicago released by the People’s Pitch “Chicago is All In” campaign.  The Guide is a snapshot into the heart and soul of Chicago and what makes our city unique and the perfect location for HQ2. More than 26,000 votes were cast from March 19-30 from nearly every zip code in the city.  Chicagoans were asked to choose from ten top nominations in seven categories that reflect the attributes Amazon is looking for in their future home.  Participants weighed in on their favorite restaurants, parks, neighborhood gems, museums, morning shows and more. The categories and winners are:

Chicago Culture and Entertainment: Black Ensemble Theater
Eats, Treats and Drinks: Harold’s Chicken Shack
Neighborhood Pride: Bronzeville
Getting Around Town: “L” Train
Class is in Session: Chicago State University
Parks and Rec: Jackson Park
Wake Up Chicago: Mornings with Maze Jackson and Charles Thomas on WVON 1690 AM

The People’s Pitch is encouraging Chicagoans to visit and sign up to join the campaign.
