"A Great Place to Raise a Family. Lots of Support for Stay at Home Moms."

I have lived in the Beverly/Morgan Park area since 1989. When we bought our house we paid $84,000. Today it is worth at least $350,000. We could not afford to move into Beverly today, but that's a good thing. The economy has been bad, but the cost of living here continues to go up. We are on par with Lincoln Park. The schools are excellent here. It's one of the few places in Chicago where you can send your child to a public school and he or she will still get a good education. There is low crime. It's a great place to raise a family. My children were born and raised here and although they will leave to attend college, my hunch is that they will return to the neighborhood to raise their own families.

"A Nice Neighborhood for Families"

Washtenaw Avenue in Chicago is a nice area for families. The homes are not extremely old, yet they are not brand new either. There is still a bit of character in the area. Most of the residents have children that attend the Catholic schools in the area, as no good public school is close by. The area is well maintained, although not as nice as say the Beverly area in Chicago.

"In the Hyde Park Area"

South Greenwood Avenue is located in the Hyde Park neighborhood. Hyde Park is home to the University of Chicago. South Greenwood Avenue is located in a college town. Therefore, the people in the neighborhood tend to be highly educated. The focus of a Hyde Parker is more culture than how nice your lawn looks. The homes on South Greenwood Avenue are expensive, because the cost of living in Hyde Park is high. This despite the fact that the crime rate in Hyde Park has risen over the years.

"Once a Grand Area, Now a Slum"

East Garfield Blvd is an example of a grand Chicago street that turned into a slum once the environment of the area changed. You will find old residential buildings in the area, but they are now substandard. Drugs and gang violence is active in the area, and the schools are poor. Some people are buying the large, old homes and renovating them to rebuild the area. However, this process is a slow one. Drive down East Garfield Blvd and head toward the lake and you hit Hyde Park. Hyde Park is home to the University of Chicago and is not a slum.

"Not So Luxurious."

Longwood Avenue in general is considered a luxury street. It features many large, expensive homes located in the Beverly neighborhood. South Longwood Avenue, on the other hand, is not so luxurious. This is the less expensive part of Longwood Avenue - the part that although is not necessarily bad, it's not a desirable place to live for those who are familiar with the Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhood.
