Gentrification happened a lot here but I feel it has made the community better. This neighborhood has the best of hospitals , schools , culture, and safety. It's one of the most diverse places to live Chicago and it has very good schools that push students to do better academically as I've went to school 3rd-8th grade here. The food is amazing and it depicts all cultures. You can walk through little village and see a variety of cultures and people embracing it. It's very safe for the most part as I rarely see or hear anything about a major crime happening here. You don't have to worry about not being safe walking your dog or carrying your kid to the park. The traffic is a little bad but it's many side streets to cut through to get to places faster. The rent is also a little over expensive due to how great of a neighbor this is but it's worth it for it's safety and it's atmosphere.

Other than the prevalent problem of gang activity, it's a pretty nice place to live. Neighbors are mostly nice, hard working families. Most of the people take pride in their lawns/homes/properties. The local Alderman works closely with the Chicago PD to mitigate gang violence and drug sales. There's not much of a nightlife or any of the typical touristy or "hip" attractions that draw the suburban crowd, but that's something that I personally love about it.
I love living in this location due to culture! I love being able to come home and smell delicious food in the air. I really enjoy the variety of parks that are available and amazing artwork that you see on every corner. There are so many great parades and music events that are fun. I wish that the city of Chicago would put more effort into making every part of the city the best. There are some community centers and schools that could use the help of funding. In little village there could also be more effort put in to safety. On a regular day it is well known to stay in your home late at night.
