I really like this area, however within the last few years I have noticed a few businesses have failed more than succeed, and crime has risen as well. No new businesses are really opening, and the quality is about the same. No new parks being created, and nothing really being done about the crime. Crime consists of drugs and car theft mainly. Nothing too serious, but the area did use to be safer before. If i had a choice, I would choose another area to raise a family.

It isn't a area with a high crime rate, however there have recently been more car break ins, car thefts and some minor drug offenses. From the police blotters, I also see some fraud being done as well.
You can find all types of food here. Chinese, Mexican, Indian and Mediterranean. There's a great variety of each too. Food is fantastic around here, maybe because its near Chicago.
