Atmosphere is friendly and enjoyable. Train stations and CTAs are very accessible to travel into the city or out. Education continues to improve, although political figures are not the most bright at the moment. The city is beautiful at day and night, managing always to take my breath away.
To be brutally honest one of my best friends died 4/4/16. And before him there was another boy that was also killed in March, both due to gun violence. Our cops are good and care for our city but the gun violence doesn't seem to be depleting.
