Moving to Armitage and Kostner

My wife and I are looking to purchase a house near Armitage and Kostner.

I am not extremely familiar with the area, so I was hoping for some insights regarding the crime and safety of the area. My wife and I are in our mid 20s and currently live near Milwaukee and Armitage and before that near Diversey and Pulaski (a couple blocks east of Pulaski).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • You are in your 20's and can afford / plan to buy?!! Wonderful! I have no problems with neighbors. Family oriented people. Welcome to the area!

  • Sam

    Unfortunately those cross streets are known as the section for the Latin Eagles street gang. Like most of the city gangs are unavoidable. They normally look for trouble amongst them selves but the riff raft is always around. Police presence is great around there. If you have children that are teenagers be very aware with them.
