I’m born and raised in Chicagoland. I’ve always been very proud to live in this city and both airports have been amazing. Until lately. O’hare is beyond disgusting. Back in the day, I’d say LaGuardia airport was the armpit. But it’s definitely been replace by Ohare which once was o lovely facility. Hopefully, some day it will be cleaned up, but I’m not holding my breath.
