I just got a job in Cicero and am looking at apartments in the Midway Airport area because I also need easy access to downtown. I'm going to be seeing an apartment near 59th between Cicero & Pulaski. Can anyone tell me if that's a decent neighborhood? What other areas near Midway are safe? Thank you!

That particular area is pretty safe and quiet (well, except for jets roaring overhead). Not a lot going on there -- a pretty sleepy bedroom community. I wouldn't venture too much further east than Pulaski though. It starts getting pretty chancey once you hit Kedzie. Pretty much anywhere west of the airport is also pretty safe; notably safer than on the east side of the airport.

Also look North of Cicero to Oak Park. A lot more nightlife and happenings out there than on 60ish and Pulaski. (unless you like polka music that is).

15 minute commute to downtown from Oak Park too.
