Possible Move to Rogers Park

Hi All!

I'm a young professional that works downtown in the loop. I'm looking to possibly move to Rogers Park and am evaluating few condos in the area. One in particular is located near the corner of Ashland and Lund. I like the location due to it's close proximity to both the Metra and the Morse redline stop. However, I'm concerned about the crime rate. The area is highlighted in red on Trulia's crime map but I've heard that East...

Hi All!

I'm a young professional that works downtown in the loop. I'm looking to possibly move to Rogers Park and am evaluating few condos in the area. One in particular is located near the corner of Ashland and Lund. I like the location due to it's close proximity to both the Metra and the Morse redline stop. However, I'm concerned about the crime rate. The area is highlighted in red on Trulia's crime map but I've heard that East Rogers Park isn't bad as long as you are south of Touhy. Hoping to get some input from the residents on this forum since this is a large financial commitment.

Another concern, is parking. The condo I'm looking at does not include a spot and I was wondering whether street parking would be difficult in this area.

Thanks in advance!

    A few weeks ago leaving the El I dropped my phone on Howard, apparently somewhere around Sol. Came back 30 minutes later, called, the guy who had it answered and came down to give it to me.

    Jia,
    Just like Reid, I live in Rogers Park and have lived her since 1980. I raised my daughter here and have lived along Sheridan Road and at Damen/Birchwood. I have never been a victim, but that is because I keep my head on and don't do stupid things, or maybe just because I am lucky. I choose to live here for many, many reasons, a lot have been stated here already.

    I have been selling real estate in this neighborhood almost 30 years and NONE of my clients have told me they have been victims of a crime. There is crime here, just as there is in anywhere else in the city. I have great neighbors and like to think I have been a good neighbor. In any neighborhood you will find both satisfied and dissatisfied folks and each feel strongly about their opinions. That is one thing that Rogers Park has many of, is very passionate neighbors.

    If you have questions about a property you are considering, feel free to contact me and I will give you the scoop about that neighborhood or particular building. I have no agenda, since I know you are working with an agent. I prefer that you contact me directly. Feel free to email me at connie.abels@gmail.com or 773-353-9180 any time.

  • JCV My head hurts.

    Agreed, Becky. I live two doors down from this lot and this definitely means I'm not having any car driving friends over any time soon after this goes into effect. Total bummer. I wonder what happened to cause this change.
