    I've lived fairly near the Jackson park hospital-but it was years ago. South Shore at one point was a very upscale neighborhood-but it changed quite a bit. There are some older homes in that area that are simply incredible.

    Be careful to find out about any apartment complex before you decide to live there. Conditions can vary a lot from building to building. Find out where the other doctors are living.

    I used to live at 62s and Ingleside. That was a pretty spotty neighborhood when i was there. There were blocks that were stable places with families-and blocks that were utterly infested with hard drug use. The area closer to the lake has changed quite a bit-and the U of Chicago police now patrol down to 64th.

    This is a major institution about 2 blocks from Jackson Park hospital.

    I'm used to any area with a presence of NOI folks to be physically safe. When I was there, there was simply no crime a 2 block radius from Min. Farrakhan's home-it was just very heavily patrolled. Barack Os home is in that area-Kenwood.

    If you go a few blocks north, 55th and stony Island you get into the black gold coast. The U of Chicago has its own police force that patrols that area that contains crime quite a bit. That neighborhood is integrated and pretty diverse. You also need to consider services. Hyde park the area around 55th street traditionally had good services.I'm not as familiar with the area around Jackson park hospital. If you need stuff like a pre-school for a young child or you have a partner that has never lived in a major city, I'd suggest Hyde park a 20 block drive away. I enjoyed my time in Woodlawn-but it wasn't something I think would be for everybody.

    Here are neighborhood links.

    The industrial pollution in this area can be pretty substantial.

    Definitely try Harold's fried chicken while you are there-it is a local delicacy.

    Dont live anywhere close to jackson park. it might not be the healthiest things to do. there is a house available with three rooms, two are already rented, but the third room is still available. it is in la grange park, very very safe and beautiful location. both students are doing their rotations at jackson park and have rented the rooms for a whole year. it is for $800. parking is free!! which is a plus. it is across a forest preserve, so not only is it beautiful, there is a great trail to walk on as well. for more information call Lee at 708-243-1968.
