McKinley Park curious

Hello all, I'm considering purchasing a home in McKinley park. The neighborhood has great transportation to the Loop (where I work) and the overall aesthetic is quaint and pleasant. However, I'm concerned about crime and the many foreclosures throughout. The property that I like is priced on the very high spectrum of the median price. So the possibility of neighborhood depreciation is also top of mind. Are any residents here able to share their thoughts addressing my concerns? I'd love to here perspective from an actual resident. Thanks so much!

  • Keep an eye on 35th in the coming years, I bet new businesses will (slowly) start popping up. Like in Bridgeport, a little more every year.

  • Justin K. McKinley Parker since 2008, south sider since 1998

    We bought here in 2008 and are glad we did. McKinley Park has way lower crime than every adjacent neighborhood (including Bridgeport). It's at the geographic center of Chicago. The park is great. And there's a growing level of civic commitment and involvement throughout the neighborhood. McKinley Park has also had the shortest time on the market for home sales.

33rd and damen lot

Anyone know what is happening with the lot on 33rd and Damen? The trucks are gone.

  • Tyler Peterson Area Man

    I'd like to know too. Hoping it's not something that ties up traffic even more in that intersection. Is there a way to find out through the city what is planned there?

  • I heard from "NextDoor" that:

    Samantha Hertel, McKinley Park·4d ago
    Yes, I went to the alderman's office and asked the same thing just the other day! It turns out that the Marano Company is expanding their distribution center. They currently have one by Ashland and the Stevenson so they are building a new one at 33rd and Damen.

Water Shutoff

General questions looking for helpful comments: I am currently doing some work in my basement. Detected a mild leak from an old valve on the main just before the meter in my house. I'd like to replace the old valve, problem is, I have no visible water shutoff in front of my house. (No buffalo box, no pit.) Have not gone directly to water dept yet, but I was wondering if I or my plumber can do anything before having the city come out? Does the city even respond if the home owner is looking for shut down just for repair? What would be the fastest way to handle this?

  • If the water department cuts your water off is there a way they can find out if you turn it back on

  • Hi there! We are in the same predicament with not knowing where the water shut off is between the building I live in (12 units) and the street. A plumber told me I need to call the city for them to make a blue X as to where the box...

    Hi there! We are in the same predicament with not knowing where the water shut off is between the building I live in (12 units) and the street. A plumber told me I need to call the city for them to make a blue X as to where the box is. We have tried to have the city come out for a couple of years or to provide blueprints but nothing so far. Where do you call? What do you tell them? I need to have a leaking faucet fixed and I think I want to have a shut off valve installed to my unit.
