Hi All,

Been a long time since I lived in NWI. Moving from Elgin, IL within the next month or so. We are trying to rent a house for a few years.

Didn't consider Merrillville until today.

How is the area around 73rd between 55 and Whitcomb? We know Merrillville has changed in the last 20 or so years, but not sure to what degree.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know that specific area, but keep the schools in mind if you have kids. Merrillville High School is rated a 2 out of 10.

Get South of Route 30 if you can.

I would look towards Crown Point, and bypass Merrillville altogether. The schools are much better.
