Working in Berkeley
Moved to Berkey a few years ago wanting to find a small quiet town outside the city but close to Metra. I absolutely love that it's a small, tree covered town minutes from the metra. I can get into downtown in 35 minutes!
Due to the fact that this city is considered to be lower class or poor, students don't get the same attention and opportunities as they would in other environments.
The neighborhood and it’s quiet and school system is good. He police are friendly and helpful. The streets are clean and stores owners are friendly. The cook county tax is high but is manageable. The mayor is nice and not to policial.
