"Decent place to call home"

I lived on 59th street in 2004, back then the neighborhood was a little bit different than it is today. From what I remember, there was some crime activity, but not too bad. There was a catholic church right across the street, as well as a park 2 blocks walking distance. Lot's of stores within walking distance, you had a pizza place called the "Pizza Kitchen" that had delicious pizza for a great price, a little corner store where you could buy snacks and a laundry mat about 3 blocks away.

It was a great place to live with all the stores around close by. The only bad thing was it is on a busy street so you had to be careful with little kids because the traffic is so close. The good part was there is a school and park about 5 blocks down, and also it is about 9 blocks away from Midway Airport and the bus station
