I live in the apartments on Gundersen..Are they perfect?? No, but they are not as bad as you all are saying. Me and my husband has served in the military for 15 years and want to raise our children in the suburbs...This is what we can afford. We have never had a problem and it is WAY better from when we lived in the city. Insulting people for their economic staus is pretty low. Just sayin.

Very bad neighborhood. Do not move there!! The gangs are still there and the cops don't care when their selling drugs or walking around at night looking to break into cars. I knew someone who lived there before and he moved away and is now living in a better town not as bad as carolstream. Good luck!
all towns have gangs and drugs if you see kids doing drugs call 911 save a life.

To all you people who don't know a thing! There are certain parts of every town that has problems. Just because one or two parts of town are bad does not make the whole town bad. The only reason why those parts of town are bad is because no one wants to get involved! I have lived here for 20 years and my husband has lived here for over40 years. We live in the same neighborhood he grew up in, and we don't have problems! When we see something that looks suspicious we as a neighborhood take charge and stop the behavior, we don't close the blinds and ignore it. When we stand as one we win! Don't ignore the behavior around you stand up and say NO!
the whole town is bad people in carol stream are bad i live by a school and i am so bad?

carol stream is getting worse and there is no one to stop it... you think the police care about the people who are living in section 8 and in those raggedy neighborhoods on Gunderson and covered bridges don't think so...I've seen it all.That's why people that i knew living across from those apartments moved out after living there for 6 months.See it with your own eyes and you decide if you want to live near those section 8 POS!!! Good Luck

I have lived in carol stream since I was born. I lived on Shining Waters until I was 8 and moved to Burning Trail after that. I am 26 now. There WAS a lot of gang activity when we were little on Burning Trail(guns, vandalism, drugs, harassment). My parents raised me right and I stayed out of it. It is absolutely not like that anymore. Its a bunch of little kids and families. There is always a punk a** or two who is looking to cause trouble, but most teenagers are like that. We have had neighborhood watch since those days, and there were bad kids over there. Our whole neighborhood is like a family and I don't think its right for people to talk about what goes on on a street that they don't live on. I went to West Chicago high school so I don't know if that puts me in the "rich" part of CS or not, but I have family who live in the older part of CS by the police station, etc. who went to Glenbard North and we all came in contact with the same things. The Gundersen Apartments are not the safest, drug-free places to hang out at, but it used to be the Village of Newport was like that. Its way better now for sure. I think in suburban towns like CS, the "ghetto" part is always moving around. If you are a concerned citizen, regardless of what town you live in, call the police. Don't take things into your own hands. Even if most people do not like carol stream police, or police in general, they are here to help. I'm not the biggest fan of carol stream, but living here for 26 years, I feel like I know a lot about it.

"who cares about the no snitch rule?" how bout you mind your own business and be appreciative you dont have to live in those apartments. some people sell drugs to feed their family's when they have no other way. what's better? selling drugs untaxed or you working all week to pay for section 8/low income families to eat out of your taxes on paycheck? carol stream is a disgusting crack/heroin infested shitthole and will NEVER be better. your better off minding your own business and looking for a new place to live that doesnt have these problems

Carol stream ain't bad. It's actually one of the nicest areas. My aunt. And uncle raised 2 kids there. I'm from hanover park ha it's a suburb but just as ghetto mi being one of the only white girls around. I felt safe completely there the local paisas at convienent store getting drunk goto the browns probably exactly the same ad covered bridges...Latin kings neighbor hood mi mam a king who don't bang as much cause he became a family man. His done robberies stolen cars he'll his house been raided but he actually the best guy now and father to our son and daughter. Drugs deals are every where and if you talking about weed wow a fucking herb. Coke big deal. I've also come from broward county in Florida now there's unsafe trap house right down the block homeless 24/7 crack feens n dealers gang members literally u could not walk alone there especially when u white. My sister baby daddy was a major dealer who made a name for himself there. Now I'm not white trash I'm all about safety to but come on shit goes down everywhere no matter who u are.
