The Neighborhood

This is an urban inner city community that is undergoing some nice redevelopment due to the brand new $21 million new college recently built. I live near a beautiful massive park with a full running track, community center /swimming and children's playground. Fall of 2016 will also see the grand opening of a $15 million Whole foods and Starbucks center, which will be located across the street from the train station at the college. You can also enjoy renting DIVI bikes at the train station.


I live within a 1/2 mile from two (2) police (URL HIDDEN) is a police training station.

At ANY given time, you will see several police patrols going up and down the street, to and from the station. There is only so much precaution a traveller can take, but its always nice to know that protection is just AT the corner. So be safe! For those who need additional security, feel free to take advantage of my night time free shuttle from the nearest train stop!

I will admit, there are better areas in Chicago but none will be as memorable as your stay here! If you are looking for a posh, well-to-do area, DO NOT BOOK HERE!

2) Do not bring police on my property at all.

You will receive direct information after confirmation as to how to get to my home using the bus line directly across the street and exactly what and how to enter my property gate for self-check in. If you decide to avoid my information and take it upon yourself to come on your own terms, while getting lost, thats fine to. But if you should be escorted to my property with the assistance of the 'police', you will not be let in or on my property. My house is surrounded by cameras to keep the police OFF my property and anyone seen with them.
