About Downtown Skokie, Illinois By Yosef Meystel

Introduction  Yosef Meystel leads YAM Management, a property management company. In his role, Yosef Meystel maintains responsibility for the financial and administrative operations of nursing facilities, which the company operates from its headquarters in Skokie, Illinois. A suburb of Chicago that directly borders the city, the village of Skokie was initially settled in the mid-1800s. However, growth did not begin to become dramatic until the early 20th century with the opening of the village’s first bank and the building of a railroad connecting Skokie to Chicago. These changes and subsequent growth led Skokie to be billed as the “World’s Largest Village.”

About Skokie  Skokie’s attractive location in the midst of a densely populated suburban region, coupled with its proximity to major transportation arteries and facilities, made its downtown area a prominent retail center from the 1940s through the 1960s. When in this time the development of malls presented stiff competition, Skokie responded by making major improvements to the downtown area to lure shoppers back.

Conclusion  Modern Skokie’s downtown is a thriving mix of merchants and restaurants, as well as entertainment and other cultural opportunities. Public transportation is abundant, offering convenience for shoppers and commuters alike. In addition, there are nine parking lots scattered throughout downtown and over 200 parking meters. More than 2,000 businesses call the area home, many of them retail merchants, including local outlets and national and regional chains.
