It's still a great area. We needs some franchises to come in.

Homewood is in the Cook County Ghetto!

The entire area bordered by Steger Road on the south, Cicero Avenue north to Cermak Road on the southwest, Austin Blvd from Cermak Road to Foster Avenue on the west/northwest, Foster Avenue on the north, Sheridan road on the east south to Chicago Avenue and the lakefront from 18th street all the way back down to Steger Road, is all endless ghetto. Nothing but dangerous, crime ridden neighborhood after dangerous, crime ridden neighborhood. The only exception is Downtown Chicago, bordered by 18th street on the south, Interstate 90/94 on the west, Chicago Avenue on the north, and the lakefront on the east.

what bizarre comments. Not true at all. Homewood is doing fine, has come through the recession honestly looking better than it did before. There are plenty of bad neighborhoods on the south side, but plenty of good ones too, all interspersed with each other.

HF is doing fine... like I said, bizarre comments...

It seems like there has been an armed robbery or two lately.

It was nice 20 years ago. Now there's way too many blacks. It's sad, really.

Hahaha don't hide behind coded words "ghetto"=black if you really have a problem with diversity of this honestly nice city well by all means pack up and leave. As for RexHymens comments well this is America if you don't like you can get out.
