Living over here is amazing! The atmosphere, the vibe and the people make it seem like a home away from home. The Chicago Cubs stadium commute is a 10 minute walk from my place, the nightlife in Wrigley is one of the best in the country and we cannot beat out a Starbucks. With my social organization, we went to a public elementary school in the area to speak about growing up in Chicago and these children enthusiasm for the talk was incredible. Their thought processes were very much engaged in the issues going on in Chicago.

Wrigleyville is a wonderful area with plenty of restaurants, activites, and fun. It is very safe, and everyone is extremely kind. There are lots of train and bus lines that make it easy to get around; no need for a car! It's a joy to be so close to Wrigley Field and always have the excitement of baseball around!
If you love baseball, good food, and good drinks, then Wrigleyville is an excellent neighborhood to go to. Home to the friendly confines, the town is painted in Cubby blue, and is home to many fans. With new restaurants and bars popping up all the time, it is an excellent area for everyone.
