"Rundown ghetto of a suburb"

What can I say about Streamwood, IL...It's definitely a city that I was glad to leave behind. Many leave the big city to escape to a nice family-friendly safe haven in the Suburbs. I'm afraid that you will find many of the same problems in this small town. The town has a very run down feeling overall. The only thing to do while I was living there was go to the movies, but the theater has since closed. There are no high quality sit down restaurants. It's often too dangerous to go to be out alone at night. There is really no reason to ever want to visit here. If you can, avoid moving here at all costs.
