I love the Grand Crossing neighborhood! I'm so pleased with the Stony Island arts bank, the black cinema house and the rebuild foundation. They are working to hard to bring art and opportunity back to the neighborhood and they make it available to all parties on chicago's southside! The next few years shall be powerful for the community.

The neighborhood is quiet, the neighborhood has friendly neighbors. I would like to see more training for jobs programs in the area and more job opportunities for the community.
Growing up in Greater Grand Crossing I learned a lot. The are taught me how to become a man at an early age. As well as teaching me, tragedy is apart of life you can only grow from it. I've lived in the area since my 4th birthday; it can either make or break who you will become.
