West Lawn Reviews
Love the area. It’s full of families and a diverse community, great for first time home owners. The alderman is very involved anything we need repaired it taken care of quickly. Police presence is felt and they neighborhood gets patrolled regularly. Lots of business in the area and a new ones pop up regularly.
It is a very nice neighborhood to grow up in. Even though some of the spots in West Lawn may not be the greatest, it is still a nice neighborhood. At least on my block, everybody is really close. We all know each other and interact. The grown ups always watch out for the kids when playing outside, etc.
I recently bought a house in this neighborhood and I have not seen any criminal activity near my house, safety was my biggest concern. The school that my son goes to is very close and looks like it is a new school and the teachers communicate easily with me. The houses all look pretty well-kept and people actually pick up their dog's business. I do like that I have parking right in front because of permit parking, but I do not like to pay for the temporary passes for visitors. The neighbors are all pretty friendly and there are tons of jobs at the airport, which one of my siblings works there and she just walks a few minutes as well. It is also very diverse, so many ethnicities on my block, which is nice to see.
