Let me tell you some of the reasons that I love the neighborhood I live in Chicago. My neighborhood is a residential neighborhood with an amazingly convenient location. I'm right off I-57 expressway , bus stop right in front of my home, elementary school is about a half block away, shopping malls (Marshfield plaza). I’m in easy walking distance of a bank, a drug store, and restaurants (Target, Jewel's-Osco, Burlington, Marshall's, Rainbow, Pet Smart, Chili's, GameStop, Nail shops, Ashley's Stewarts, LA Fitness, AT&T Hair salons, I can go on and on)! What is there not to love about my neighborhood! Its so convenient!

I 1st moved to the West Pullman area in 2010. Upon moving here, I was always asked why would you move to such a neighborhood. It's right on the other side of Roseland. I love the neighborhood I live in. Mt neighbors are very friendly, we all clean up our neighborhood together. We look out for one another's children. The neighborhood school is excellence we really have teachers & administrators who cares about our children & realizes that they are our future. They invest in them by going above & beyond the norm of teaching. Our neighborhood is very quiet and safe for the most part. We rarely ever have a huge problem or are in fear of our safety. I feel the neighborhood library can be better & upgraded with books & other resources. Welcome reading programs or contests like all the other libraries. It's us the people who decides how we will & should live and that's what we do. We get out in our community, & we do the work.
West Pullman is a food desert. It has not yet been gentrified; there are still very many churches and small corner stores around. The West Pullman Park District is a great place for the children to be enrolled into their annual summer day camp as well as their after school programs.
