Moving to N Oakley Ave

Hello!
I'm considering moving to the 2800 block of N Oakley.. Can anyone give me some feedback about the area?

  • We moved to the 2800 block of Oakley 2 years ago from the Wrigleyville area and love it. The neighborhood is a peaceful little section on the city and everyone is so friendly. We are so happy living in the area

  • TC Cardona The Oakley Ave Guy

    I moved to the 3400 N of Oakley in 2015 and its been a wonderful neighborhood. There are lots of you g people out romaing the streets afterhours at the local bars bit bothing ever gets to crazy. Your obviously south of me but still N Oakley and Roscoe Village area is a great part of the city to be in albeit a bit more expensive, but that's the price we pay!
