When was that ten years ago? That area is a festering crap hole now that is going nowhere but down.

Wierd. I'm thinking about moving from Chicago to Charlotte

Traditionally Chicago's been a very segregated city. But many areas have changed the last maybe decade or so - folks generally all get along. Might suggest Miller Beach in Gary? Its the nicest part of Gary, right on the water, generally affordable, and a reasonably short train ride to downtown. Just a thought!

You will be within walking distance to the lake, and the best thing is that you will be around many different people from different ethnic backgrounds.
Yeah, I don't consider Oak Park part of Chicago because it isn't. Its a suburb. I think a major reason to consider living in the suburbs is that many/most Chicago Public Schools are bad/horrible.

What about all of the 99% black neighborhoods surrounding Hyde Park? I'd say those are closer to the "epitome of segregation" since they're actually, um, segregated. A 99% black neighborhoods isn't diverse.

I think he was referring to "West Ridge", which is sometimes called "West Rogers Park". The western edge of Rogers Park is a bit sketchy, but West Ridge is mostly nice. Or at least somewhat nice.

Uptown is diverse, but it is not integrated. More than half of the low-rise buildings have been converted into condos, and are majority white and Asian of economic means. Most of the high-rises away from the lake are subsidized housing filled with poor African-Americans. There is very little mixing among residents of different groups. The enclaves are small in Uptown, and they merely give the appearance of integration because the neighborhood contains many enclaves.

Default What do you all think about Ravenswood?

I was reading some old threads about Ravenswood. They were saying it is decent, affordable and safer than other parts.

The thread was from last year so I was wondering if anyone had a up to date idea about the area?
