I'm wondering how the community is in Lake Station. Specifically around the area of Central and Warrwick.

When I was younger Lake Station was called East Gary. Cant blame them for changing the name. If i remember right, it floods alot in that area. And I dont think there is alot of upper class housing there. I think on the border between Lake Station and Hobart is my favorite Indiana retaurant. The Paragon. Best Gyros in The USA!!

Lake Station. My hometown, the place I left my heart. The place I always wanted to return to after my parents moved me away when I was a kid.

I will never forget the day I moved, the day I said goodbye to my friends on the playground of Central Elementary. I still remember every person in my kindergarten class.

Most of my other memories of life in Lake Station are good ones, and there are so many. Bittersweet is what they are. It may only have been eight years but it seemed like 100 years at the time.

I've been a Lake Station resident for about 15 years now. I grew up in Hobart.

The community here is what you make it.

On my street we have retired folks, new hispanic families, rednecks, hippies, and German immagrants. And those are just the folks who showed up for my back yard BBQ on the 4th.

Lake Station starts at the Gary border. I-65 divides Gary and Lake Station. US 6 is the southern border, and the northern border is just south of US 12/20. We are bordered on the east by Portage.

The streets run alphabetical from west to east. So Warrwick is close to the Portage side of town. Property values are in the $100,000 south of Central, 70-80s north of Central.

The school system is lousy.
Trash removal is a joke.
Lots of leave raking in the fall.
Some of the best pizza in NW Indiana.

Maybe the west side, and the northwest corner of Hobart.
I live way over on the east side and we are built on sand dunes with tons of oak trees. We don't flood.
