Woodlawn is on the rise. I am a resident and investor in the community. Keep in my mind there are 4 quadrants (North east, South east, North West, South West) of the neighborhood. Bounded by stony island to the east, 60th street to the north, MLK drive to the west and 67th street to the south. Some quads are better than others, however the re-development process has started. With the new Jewels being constructed on the west side of 61st/Cottage along with newly constructed lofts on east side of 61st and 63rd/Cottage combined with recreational/commercial use the area will be one of the top desired communities to live in once all complete. Oh and lets not forget about the obama library which is scheduled to be complete by 2021. Home values are increasing and will soon double. The master plan of wood lawn has begun! Get in now before it's too late.
I've lived in Woodlawn all of my life. Growing up, I've experienced multiple occasions of gun violence, robberies, arson, and other crimes. The public schools here are okay; they're not the best but they're trying. As a kid in elementary school, our school never could afford books, lockers, nor supplies that could help us in the classroom. It was a very awful experience. The only good part about this neighborhood is Jackson Park which will be home to the Obama Library Center. Ultimately, this project will force the rent in the area to rise up and resident out of their homes because they can't afford it.
The things I like about Woodlawn would have to be the food options all around, there are so many amazing food restaurants around my community that Inmost definitely go to often. When I have the power to change my community, Woodlawn, I would start organization to prevent crimes and murder, the organization would be based off unity and hope for a safer world.
