What Renters Like and Dislike About South Side Chicago

Many places to eat. Places with live music. Good mixture of people. There is a mixture of churches and religions. There are year round activities. Many schools.

Bars and restaurants bring in people from all diversity and communities to hang out together as one to hand out

I liked the building it self it just nice and cool to live it. Good place to be and all of that stuff.

you know each time i see the police it good and want to see people stand up and protection others been a long time to see does want good want

Small businesses are nearby. There's a large city park within walking distance. Locals are usually pretty friendly to each other daily.

I like the upkeep, everything looks nice and clean .one of my favorite burger spots is 15 minutes away so that's nice and convenient
