Not welcome in Harwood Hts

Since: Jan 09

After living in Indiana and moving back to the area. I understand why Hoosiers do not like Chicago.Unfortunately, my first year in Indiana ws not a pleasant one. They seemed to know I was an outsider and they were very leary about us because they heard all the bad things about us. But after a while they came to know us and welcomed us with open arms. I had a very nice home there but we chose to come back because my son fell ill and required to be closer to the hospital. So we sold our home and moved back here.. Since times have been so financially hard because of my sons condition we had to do with the two older cars we have.. Funny but getting harassed because we do not drive a new vehicle but one with a cracked bumper does not meet up to the high superior standards of the residents here. We are called WHITE TRASH and harassed almost the same month we moved here. People here have gone out of their way to harass us as much as humanly possible. We pay our rent ON TIME just like everybody else here I hope.. They should worry about gang bangers around here instead of struggling families and sick children. I have sacrificed everything and sold everything to do what a GOOD PARENT would do for their family. I AM DISGUSTED WITH SUCH SICK EVIL PEOPLE. I was followed to my sons school recently by an insane neighbor who kept laying on her horn and yelling and screaming at me and my son WHITE TRASH GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG. I guess if I were a drug dealer and a gang banger who drove a Mercedes I would be treated with more respect. But one thing though she would never get away with that harassment if she did it to one of those people. Yes I will be moving from here.. I am ashamed to tell anyone I live here. Hoosiers aren"t half bad.. If this area keeps continuing to drive hard working struggling people out of here they get what they deserve not a pleasant picture. When your neighborhood gets over run with crime its no fault but your own.

I have a feeling that Harwood Heights will turn itself around. There are too many good people to offset the bad ones. And the bad ones always seem where out their welcome.

Maybe the police would be more lenient if the town had a better source of revenue. These guys have to earn their paycheck the hard way. You'd do the same if you were in their position.

1st The Police is a traffic police, they only can ticket but event that is uncivilized way.
2nd There is no sense of community in Harwood Hts.
3 Businesses can't make it here, I don't know too high taxes.
4 Ridgewood High School is a great place for jocks and barbie dolls, not for people that want to study and go to college.
5 Being fair, it is safe and calm place.

It is so sad how materialistic people can be in some suburbs, close minded pricks.

Thank you for all your comments... 1 thing to say is I have been a former resident of HH before I moved back. Still do not know what to do yet... I know things are tough here when they have to steal the brass off your mailboxes lol. There are good and bad people I realize everywhere you go but....tensions seem higher here than where I lived... certainly people drive a hell of lot more recklessly and have no regard whether they run you over or not but then again its always been that way around here. Was that a politician that repiled John from Chicago that everything will turn around for HH? It takes a effort and from the people I have spoken to door to door as I walked with an official a while back these people are ticked off at the gov here. No offense John but I was born and raised in Chicago I hope you are right but these are not the 60s. 70s, or 80s.. People for the most part are so self absorbed they cannot care less. Lets see when my lease nears the end... one thing has not changed no shortage of slum landlords who do not take care of their buildings. Take Care All

Well John HARWOOD HEIGHTS is not turning around and the trouble is escalating for us. Read my new blog.If you are an official I would love to talk and if they want us out so bad $5000 should do it and by the way tell my son who has the cyst on his brain he has to leave all his friends here and start again

It's pretty much the same everywhere here. Chicago is just not very friendly.

We have an intrusive government. It should be our own business what we do behind closed doors.

I trust my family and that's it! People are just out for themselves otherwise.

Though now that I think of it, there are several small businesses I do trust.
I was thinking of the dating game on my last post.:))

Dunkin Donuts on Cumberland shouid be shut down or at least the old sleazy senior men should be kicked out. Their service is good but the management really is sub- standard and they old senior male perverts need to be kicked out!!! I never have seen in my lifetime such rude indignant,trouble-making sleazebags in my life. The loud obnoxious,behavior they display and how they comment,harass start fights and cause problems for people is just beyond me. Management does nothing to stop it they actually endorse it. Many people refuse to go in again. They are lucky they have a good location for walk-ins. The problems they have caused for me alone they are despicable

There were some friendly people in Harwood Heights when I lived there. But the twenty somethings really suck. I guess that goes for everywhere else too.
