Washington Heights Reviews
The houses in the area are beautiful. There are quite a fee places to eat in the area. The area is very diverse, with people all varying races & ages. Generally well kept area with fairly nice people. There are various schools and at least 2 different Metra train lines to take you through the city & surrounding areas.
A Chicago neighborhood immediately west of the Beverly area that has several level one elementary schools. This neighborhood is well kept, with tree lined streets, several parks, bike paths, and affordable real estate.
Well growing up I had fun as a little kid. I was able to go outside and play with my friends without hearing gunshots everyday. As I got older I started experiencing the real world as far as violence. Gang related problems always found its way around my neighborhood. I even experienced a gun firing incident. It was the most terrifying thing that I had ever experienced. When I get older I wouldn't consider living here again. I wouldn't want to experience anything like that one ever again. Most places like the suburbs, you really don't here much out there which is why I'd rather live there or out of state. Things happen everywhere, but i want to be safe at the end of the day.
