Update: Blue Island is the winner of Curious City's contest. The south suburb received 1093 votes, 41 percent of the total votes. Oak Park came in second with 977 votes.

WBEZ series, Curious City, is asking listeners to vote for the Chicago suburb they should investigate. Oak Park, Evanston and Blue Island are the choices.

Curious City reports that Chicago now spans about 237 square miles. The city swallowed up neighborhoods like Beverly and Hyde Park years ago.

But how did suburbs such as Oak Park and Evanston keep their independence?

WBEZ is on the move to find out. Voting ends midday on Monday Feb. 3.
