Chicago's youth poet laureate Nue, when asked what is your favorite place Out South, said,
"The Point. The Point. The Point, the Point, The Point. It's the place that I can go to and literally just sit at, and just be at peace. I have a lot of East Coast friends and they'll be like 'you never been to the beach, yada, yada, yada' -- I don't care what nobody says, Lake Michigan is an ocean. It's The Ocean, it's my ocean!"
