I feel very safe in Niles, as there is little to no crime. I lived in this suburb almost my entire life. I love the Niles free buses that are provided for the citizens of this town. I also enjoyed all of the public schools I attended growing up here.

I love my city!! There is places for everyone. Parks, library, movies, and plenty of family spots. Great place to raise a family.
I would love to see more small business open up. There should be more entertainment for teenage and twenty-somethings.
