President Obama's Library Headed to the South Side

I am glad that President Obama has chosen the south side for the location of his library.

I do hope that he utilizes black contractors and black workers to build and run this facility. They are in desperate need of jobs and this will help the community.

    I would agree that Hyde Park is still a safe area, and a great place to be in the city. I feel like it's getting better every day. It is still an urban neighborhood and things happen. I think right now we are seeing an uptick in crimes due to the weather changing and getting warmer. That seems to happen every year. Overall, Hyde Park is still a very safe area, and in my experience, a great neighborhood for families, especially now that more businesses and restaurants are moving into the area.

  • Statistically Hyde Park is one of the safest neighborhoods in the city of Chicago. One of the reasons that this story made the news is b/c of the fact that violent crime in the area is a rather rare occurrence.
