Little India is entirely within the CA of West Ridge.

Fargo is a little of hike to the el. However, the train is also an option. There are nice parks in the area. Indian Boundary and Warren Park. Also if you go by Jarvis and El there is Jarvis square. Some fun restaurants and when not in COVID some festivals there too. Check out Le Piano... a childhood friend opened it. I love the cobblestone street it is on. Also right by the El.

Oops, too early and before the morning coffee. Of course LI is in W.R.

I misread West Ridge as West Rogers Pk.

SO they just saw 5 properties, and the only two they are considering putting an offer in are in the Morse area.

The Morse area looks really nice... my biggest issue, walkability and safety.

I have not ever heard anything overly negative about the Loyola/Morse area as it relates to crime. There are likely a good amount of students in the area (Loyola University). There are probably some sections of “spotty crime,” so you would want to check with people on this site and others about the exact street, just to be sure. I have not had any bad vibes riding the CTA red line north. That area is a nice mix of vibrancy but also a homely, neighborhood vibe.

masssachoicetts, you said it. You may find problems anywhere you go.

That said, feel free to look up crime stats on the different community areas in Chicago. Some of the areas that are the very far north side (Edison Park, Norwood Park, Forest Glen, North Park) have some rather excellent stats.

I personally like that area because they tend to be clean, many city workers settled in those parts, and they are near a lot of forestry. (and not that it would apply to you, but the far north side is connected via the highways that lead up to my home State of Wisconsin, so I can come back and forth with less congested traffic that I have to face if I go to the south side).

You have been given some great feedback on this thread. It partially sounds to me like being near an L train is a bit higher on the priority list? If so, take a look at an L train map, if you have not done so already, and hopefully you can find an area that fits all your other criteria.

Best of luck on your search.

100% compared to other forms (esp MA), IL has been very helpful and the insight has been very valuable. Extremely helpful.

Lot I'm learning myself from the area and being on the Red Line is very important, especially near the Rogers Park stop on the express train for like $4.

What I gather is Morse is younger, diverse, fun and lots of entertainment options with restaurants and bars. Close to beach, parks and right on a train line to downtown/loop.

A mix of urban, and high density suburban. Reminds me of Fenway/Kenmore/Allston of Boston to draw a comparison? Petty crime is everywhere, and I'm glad to see Chicago more often now!

masssachoicetts, unfortunately I am not familiar with MA, although I did learn several years ago that Boston has a large Portuguese population.

In any event, so Rogers Park does indeed have a few L train stops. There is a more negative connotation with the most northerly stops, regarding safety concerns. (Somewhere here on city-data.com you can even see a thread where I wrote about an altercation I had at the Howard Street platform). But it ended on a very good note

Rogers Park is one of the most diverse neighborhoods. And I do like to make my way through there from time to time, although it is not my most frequented neighborhood.

I'm Portuguese lol right on that.
But yeah I'm trying to draw comparisons of cities I'm super familiar with (Boston, ny, orlando) to relay back.


It sounds great, especially interested in the area by Morse right now. There are a few properties right by the Jewel Osco right next to Howard. I'm slightly skeptical, moreso than Morse, but I have a feeling it's not that bad.. at all. I plan a visit this weekend.
