Local Reviews

I think the outstanding bars and restaurants nearby. Also there are many grocery stores within walking distance.

The school is good and the kids enjoy going to school every day. The community is good and the prices in the supermarket are reasonable

It's easy to go to the supermarket and the hotel. The supermarket has everything and the service is very good

My neighborhood falls on the southern edge of downtown Chicago. The neighborhood is filled with restaurants, retail outlets, grocery stores, jazz bars, and a host of other amenities that make it user-friendly. I am a short ride from the art, museum, the lakefront, and Michigan Avenue.

Friendly environment. Good environment for raising children. Higher security to ensure safety of neighbors

The things I like about my neighborhood is that every body get alone. We all respect each other If we fell somethings wrong we will check it out.
