I maybe moving into the area!
Wanted to know everyone's thoughts on the neighborhood!

  • Hey Eric
    As the area you are moving into is primarily POC and lower income they don't do as many posts on EB as say when I lived in Logan. I live further south and closer to California than you and Chicago is always block by block. You're fairly far west, so I am not sure what or how the environment is in your general neighborhood. But Hi! and welcome....

  • I did notice that yes, well I was hoping more could tell me how the area is!

    But thank you for the welcoming
