Well, I lived in Kenosha and Sturtevant (smaller town stuck on the edge of Racine) for most of six years back in the early 1990's. Worked in Gurnee and Northbrook, IL. I lived very close to the AMC plant where they had made Jeep engines for many years.
I liked it fine. Kenosha's downtown was old and run-down, but so it Wilson NC, where I live now. And Kenosha seems to be rebounding, which Wilson has never done.
When I moved there, I noticed how many bars there are. Seems there is one on every street corner, and another in the middle of the block in case you can't make it from on end of the street to another. Just the opposite of what I see here in NC (all churches, and no bars). When I met people, they'd ask me what bar I go to by way of introduction - the assumption being that everybody had a local watering hole of preference.
Anyway, Kenosha's fine. I never had a problem with it. And you can still buy a nice house there for $80,000 and work in Illinois and pay Wisconsin taxes. Heck of a deal.
