The neighborhood that I live in is Sauganash and I love living here. Its a relatively small neighborhood so everyone around here knows everyone else. Some things that I would love to see change in the future would be the addition of more restaurants because we only have a few as it is. We have Edens The Original, which is a great burger/gyro place, and Whole Foods, which is a supermarket but there is a variety of different types of food such as daily made sushi, pizza, and sandwiches.

Growing up here, I have always felt safe and supported by my community. Everyone knows one another here and there is a sense of cohesiveness between neighbors, as they all want this to be the safest and most fruitful neighborhood.
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.
