I'm thinking about purchasing a condo in Avondale, right near the kimball + Belmont intersection. I've read about some of the gang problems in the news, but I'm not sure where the problems are most common. The area seems to be changing for the better, I noticed they opened up a xsport right down on Belmont and there's a best buy also. The fact that the blue line is right there appeals to me as well.
I would really appreciate any feedback about the neighborhood, crime, pros, cons, thoughts? :)
