My wife and I love the Flossmoor area, but we want to be ensured that it will be a safe place to live 10 years from now. We would like to start a family soon and want to know that Flossmoor would be a good place to raise our children. We are torn on whether we should move there. Any comments??

Flossmoor is a great community with great schools, state of the art library, beautiful parks and friendly people. We're a small community that is completely dedicated to ensuring Flossmoor remains the crown jewel of the south suburbs -- well into the future.

Flossmoor will resemble Harvey or Markham in 10 years.

Flossmoor is going down, fast. It all starts with the schools. The schools are declining and parents are taking their children out and placing them in private schools, some even outside of the Flossmoor area! Look at Homewood on Halsted and look at Hazel Crest on Kedzie - Flossmoor will end up in the same boat in 10 years. Get out now!

Those who actually think Flossmoor carries the same cache it did in the past are in clear and arrant denial. There has been a rapid decline in this area even dating back to the 1990's, which has affected the aforementioned and Olympia Fields. While it's obviously not my decision as to where you move, it would behoove you to look elsewhere. In fact, I'd look into Munster, Indiana or even Frankfort. It's sad because the two aforementioned towns used to be very prestigious and charming.

At one time (20 years ago) Flossmoor was a sterling suburb. It was home to very wealthy and dignified people. They have high appearance standards there. If you're blue-collar, you'll be looked down upon. Don't even think of owning a pick-up truck and parking it in your driveway- you'll get a ticket. They don't allow fast food joints, pizza parlors, muffler shops, cyclone fences, and above ground swimming pools. However, it IS on the decline. The standards and ordinances are still in effect, but the police are getting busier, and the school district is forced to emphasize discipline due to a good number of undesirable people who live by inferior cultural stndards.

Look at the demographics on the right. That should explain the problem!

Even worse, go down the page and click on the individual school's demographics!

So, if you do not have dark pigmentation, get out, Now!
