Really good building

This is a great building- there are only a few renters, mostly owners, which means its quiet and well-maintained. The security is great and the doormen are really kind.

You really don't have to live in Regents or Shoreland to feel safe and happy in Hyde Park. This part of 56th st is GREAT: its close to school, safe, and right near lakeshore drive so you can get downtown really easily. I was so lucky finding this building. For what I pay its a steal.

Hyde Park Reviews

Hyde park is just the best! It has really blossomed over the past 5 years that I've been living there. It has really become home for me. I have lived on Blackstone, Cornell, Woodlawn, and now Kenwood. Each experience has been awesome. I have felt comfortable and safe at all times - even with my late night walks/runs. My favorite feature of course is Lake Michigan! There's something about Hyde Park's lake front that i just adore!
There's a lot going on off of 53rd. Good restaurants (A10, Promentory, Yusho) and even some worthwhile fast food (Native Foods, Chipotle). There are two grocery stores (Hyde Park Produce is phenomenal), and almost everything else (a hardware store, an office supply store in the Treasure Island shopping center, some doctors' offices off of 55th). Down on 57th there are some other good restaurants (Medici) and 57th Street Books is a cornerstone. Hyde Park even just got an improv comedy place (The Revival) on 57th.

In short, there's enough going on in Hyde Park not to feel isolated, but it's far enough away from the city not to feel suffocated.
Hyde Park is great if you want convenience and safety. Some things are a little overpriced (god help those who want cheap flour) but others are cheap (i.e., square footage of your unit if you aren't in Regents). It's not a neighborhood for those who love nightlife. We have almost none. But there's a professional theater company, some good restaurants, and you can walk home basically any time of night.
Hyde Park is a great place to live for a student or a young family, in that it's relatively quiet, but is growing quickly in terms of entertainment and dining options. It's also very beautiful, being an older neighborhood with a lot of brownstones and castle-like structures, and big trees with lots of beautiful foliage in the fall. I don't like the fact that there's not an L stop central to the neighborhood, but the Metra makes up some of the difference if you live nearby, and the buses to downtown are relatively convenient. Also, people's concerns about "safety" are ridiculous – I think certain people tend to become afraid when they see more brown people than they are used to, but the neighborhood is actually one of the wealthiest and safest neighborhoods in the city, in addition to having the advantage of being culturally and demographically diverse. There's also a lot of really nice park space (you're between Jackson Park and Washington Park, have the Midway Plaisance right in the middle of the university, and other smaller parks like Nichols Park and Harold Washington Park provide a lot of nice greenery).
When you think of South Side Chicago, you don't think of Hyde Park. It's really nice, however it can quickly turn into a dangerous place if you venture too far away from the neighborhood. I've overall enjoyed the neighborhood very much. It has a lot of culture to learn from. If it's good enough for President Obama it's good enough for me.
The neighborhood is decent, but I liked it better when there was another option for groceries beyond Whole Foods. Target Express has some stuff, but not everything. There's a good number of restaurants and a few options for bars. It's relatively walkable, or the buses are good for getting around most of the time otherwise. I usually feel pretty safe, but I don't really feel comfortable walking around alone at night off-campus (as a petite female). I know others who have no problem with it, though.
I love Hyde Park. It's extremely walkable and it is reasonably close to public transportation that's pretty quick into downtown. If you want to do more serious shopping or dining out it usually involves a trip outside of the neighborhood, but most things I need for everyday life are very close.
It seems like it's changed a lot in the past few years. Great new restaurants and bars, cute movie theater, fun shops, I really love this quiet and adorably eclectic neighborhood. Also because my school is here, its extremely convenient. Bus or metra downtown quickly and conveniently.
