Living west of western avenue? Thoughts

Hi all! Just looking to see what peoples experiences have been living west of western (one block); between Harrison and Polk. Is it safe to walk in the evening hours? Do you guys feel safe? Or is there a real threat of robbery?
Thanks for your help

    Its just as safe as wicker park, lincoln park or ukraine village. There are working class folks who are professors, drs, teachers.. Im not sure what "safety" issues you are pertaining to but your chances of being robbed are about the same as other areas. Use the "i live in...

    Its just as safe as wicker park, lincoln park or ukraine village. There are working class folks who are professors, drs, teachers.. Im not sure what "safety" issues you are pertaining to but your chances of being robbed are about the same as other areas. Use the "i live in a big city" common sense tactic and you will be just fine. Still concerned? Drive in the area during several different times.. Morning, noon, night.... Still feeling unsafe, you can go to cloout neighborhood with rent prices to match so that you feel like you are fitting in. Good luck 😒

  • That's where I live. I've never had an issue, never felt unsafe. Lots of families living around here. It's just like anywhere else in the city- there's crime. I just try to be smart about not putting myself in harm's way.

  • Thank you both for your response. I consider myself a street smarts type of woman, and am aware that crime can happen anywhere. I really like the location- and the proximity to things like public trans, e-way and my job :)
    I wanted to get some insight from real residents.
    Thank you.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 -

Hi...thought I would try this. Dropped my cell phone and trying to find replacement. Anyone have a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 hanging around? WIll pay! Thanks!

  • atennislover: I do not have a phone for you but was interested in any responses. I have been looking for an iPhone 5s for my son that does not cost an arm and a leg, is not stolen, and will work. I thought to offer $50 more than what Gazelle would pay for it. So I hope that you get some good responses and that this becomes a good resource for such needs.

    Thank you.

Car share - thoughts?

HI...just wondering if people can share their experiences (good and bad) with car sharing programs (igo, zipcar)? Are cars available when you need/want them - especially last minute?

  • i've always had a great experience with zipcar. If you take the car out of town just make sure you know how many miles you're allowed before they start charging extra.

  • Joshua Iz It iz what it iz.

    Zipcar is great and there are lots of locations. If it's last minute on the weekend you might have to go a few blocks farther but there are always cars available.

  • Em Ro evening is the whole day

    Zipcar is great unless what you're doing something has a time variable. I use zip car every few months to take my pets to the vet. Even though I plan and book it for extra time, if the vet runs late, checkout is slow, or traffic is bad, you're left stressing and speeding back, knowing you'll be out $50 or whatever the late fee is. I've never been late, but there have been times where I've pulled in with 1 minute to spare...and I was sweating bullets!
