Hyde park for me has always been home. A great majority of my family has lived here for decades. In addition to that I have played in multiple neighborhood basketball leagues throughout the area that has always been the peak moments of my child hood. In addition to that there are many awesome places to eat like my favorite pizza shop: Papa Gino's. To add on to that I always feel a sense of security in Hyde Park, I'm never afraid to go outside or worried about any dangers that may be out there. Lastly the people here are really nice and genuine, I would also add that it is a very diverse place as well.

Hyde Park is such a genuinely friendly neighborhood -- everyone is nice. I enjoy taking long strolls, and seeing all of the friendly faces. Hyde Park is so quiet during any time of day, and at night all you hear are crickets. I came from Miami, Florida where all I heard throughout the night were police sirens and car chases. Moving from that energy to Hyde Park's energy was a very big shift, but I am so glad it happened. One thing I do wish Hyde Park had more of is public transportation. There is transportation, but it is inconsistent, and that is the one thing that would make Hyde Park a better neighborhood.
I have lived in Hyde Park for almost all of my life. It is a very quiet, green grass, suburban area. The neighbors are really nice and considerate. It is also a very safe place to live. There are rarely any troubles if there is any trouble hyde park police station is literally down the hill. Schools are affordable I believe there are two public schools and the remainder are private schools. Schools around this area provide great education (some schools include: Delphi Academy, Thatcher Montessori School)
