I have been living in North Park neighborhood over five years. So far, I have only encountered friendly neighbors. I never have to worry about getting home safely at night. One of the best thing about living in the North Park neighborhood is the quietness. Overall, North Park is a great neighbor to live in, however, it lacks diversity. It does not have many color of people. It mostly contains concussions.

It is safe to walk in, 4 blocks from the Chicago Transit Brown Line, also the Kimball bus runs regularly North and South. You can walk through the North Park University Campus, it is beautiful, it's like you are far away in nature but you are not. It is also a huge diverse area, especially with the college students attending North Park University.
The community is very kind but it may be hard to find things to do. The parks in the neighborhood are very beautiful and the houses are very comfy looking, but you may need a car if you want to find something interesting to do or to eat.
