I've lived in Rogers Park for 5 years. Throughout those 5 years, I've experienced some rough times within myself, but I always had the comfort of my home to fall back on. I've always felt a sense of security within my community. There are some problems with crime, due to Loyola being a home to students who have money which leads to them being targeted for theft. Living in Chicago all my life helped be street smart within each neighborhood. I never had an issue with someone off the street nor the police. There are always cops patrolling, which allows me to believe they really are here to protect their citizens.
I helped make a police report for my friend and they handled it with care.
Additionally, there are many community events that are hosted that include the support of the arts, students, community, etc.
I personally love the Farmer's Market.
Overall, I love Rogers Park because it's accessibility to the beach and its ability to always call it home and mean it.
One of the last affordable areas in Chicago, Rogers Park is slowly getting cleaned up and is now a relatively safe area in which to live. Rogers Park is one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the United States, with over 80 languages spoken! More restaurants and bars are starting to pop up there and the commute time downtown is only 45 minutes on the Red Line.
