What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Oak Lawn

Several restaurants, bars, shops and grocery stores are nearby. Crime is near, but feel relatively safe.

The village always has something going on. The restaurants are within walking distance or you can drive. The parks are close.

It's walkable and safe. There are green spaces nearby and families. Businesses seem healthy and more families are moving in.

Feeling safe and secure. Being near to essential stores and restaurants. Living in a upscale apartment.

I think the community atmosphere we have in our neighborhood is unique. You know most people and everyone is willing to help each other.
