Hi!

I'm thinking about moving to Country Club Hills, specifically the Provincetown area off of 183rd and Pulaski/Crawford. Can anyone tell me a little bit about the area?

The south suburbs have been undergoing a lot of changes, and Country Club Hills was one of the first to change. It's a predominantly African-American suburb that is widely perceived to have declined.

Well, two very important things come to mind. 1) There is no country club, and 2) there really aren't any hills.

Compared to other south suburbs like Harvey, Chicago Heights and Calumet City, I don't think Country Club Hills is that bad at all. Residential development consists of almost all 1960s/1970s era single family homes that are generally well kept, with a smattering of condo developments here and there.

Yep, not all that bad compared to other south suburbs. There are some newer single family homes, too, near Cicero & Flossmoor.

Too many people paint all of the south suburbs with a broad brush of supposed undesirablility. The area has a lot more nuance to it than people who avoid it realize. The town of Olympia Fields is also majority African American with a median household income close to $100K. Flossmoor is up there, too. There are majority African American middle and high income neighborhoods and towns. There are probably more such places in metro Atlanta and Washington D.C. than Chicagoland.

This is 2021. Majority African American doesn't automatically mean "ghetto" anymore.

Hi there! I have been a native of the south burbs all of my life. I would say Country Club Hills is a nice, middle class predominantly African American suburb, much similar to Matteson. It's fairly quiet and there is a decent amount of shopping and restaurants. Pre-Covid, the movie theater was one of the nicer ones in the area. You also have good highway access with three major highways surrounding the town. All in all, it's a nice, quiet suburb and an attractive place for African American homebuyers. Feel free to ask me any more questions you have about the area!
