Decent area to live but I find that customer service in local businesses is rather low. Near the entrance to the 57 freeway headed north and south, there are often accidents. People run stop signs and lights frequently, as there are no traffic cameras. Street parking is somewhat of a risk. The police department is good, they patrol and aren't far away. There are quite a few daycare options in the area--affordable and higher end. Morgan Park High School has a track that is open to the public, there are outpatient clinics, parks, good restaurants and a currency exchange in the area.

What i like about morgan park is that, it is very diverse and very cultural. We have different parks and museums you can visit and have fun at. We also have so much variety of foods and resturants you can eat at. you can meet different people from different backgrounds. I want to improve the school systems. Build better schools and find good teachers that will help our students excell and become better people of tommorrow.
I like Morgan Park because its quiet, family friendly, and local places to eat, shop and explore. There are parks, I also feel safe and if I need anything like clothes, food, schools everything is available unless its a certain store that I wanted to visit like a Victoria Secret. However, anything I need is available at other stores. I wish their was more specialty stores like Forever 21, Victoria Secret and etc. Also, more places to hang out like a miniature golf, escape room and etc.
