It's ok on the street I live on but, the surrounding neighborhoods are the problem. When I live in the suburbs, my family felt safe and we could enjoy sitting out on the balcony not to worry about a possible drive by shooting. It was very peaceful. The advantage for my family living in the metro area is that it is close to my school and my parents job. We are also not to far from the Chicago Bulls United Center!

The area is currently in the process of being gentrified so a diverse group of people is started to move to the neighborhood and more companies are are coming into the area. When I first moved to the neighborhood it was a bit dangerous and unsafe and there wasn't even a grocery store near by. Now restaurants and grocery stories are started to open up locations in the area, however, there is still crime.
I haven't necessarily witnessed any crime, but I have gotten my bike and car stolen from both inside and just outside my apartment building.
