You get what you pay for

It's difficult to find a one-bedroom for under $1000/month (including utilities) so in that sense, it's a great value. It's also near the 53rd Street restaurants and shops, which is definitely a plus. The 171 bus picks up just a block away. They also recently re-did the kitchens, and the unit was very clean when I moved in. However, appliances are still outdated and the units are small. Air conditioning is not included, but you can rent a wall unit from the building. Heating is radiator heating - very little temperature control. The building often smells of cigarette smoke and there are tons of pets living in the building, including birds. So you have to be able to put up with a few things, but overall it's met my expectations.

The Victorian/TLC

Much smaller than the floor plans they have online, but otherwise a really great apartment - cozy, nice interior, good heating, etc.

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!
Hyde Park has tons of resources and a lot of free events sponsored by the University of Chicago. Two movie theaters (Harper Theater and Doc Films) provide low cost entertainment ($5-$10). 57th Street Beach and Promontory Point are some of the best parts of the lake shore with fire pits and beaches that tend to remain uncrowded. 3 independent bookstores (Seminary Co-Op, 57th Street Books, and Powells) also contribute to the culture of the neighborhood with the Seminary Co-Op often hosting free events. There are more grocery stores in the neighborhood than I think we need (Hyde Park Produce, Whole Foods, Treasure Island and Open Produce [open until 2am]). There is also a Target, Marshall's, Michael's, CVS, Walgreens, and Ace Hardware. The neighborhood is very walkable and bike friendly.
I love Hyde Park. I love living near the lake at prices that are much more affordable than comparable places downtown. There are so many shops within walking distance now.
I don't really have a choice because it's close to my school, but since it is close to a school, there are more police and security around so generally it feels safe.
Hyde Park is becoming more gentrified, but safety is still a major concern. There is not a whole lot to do in terms of activities.
The area on 53rd street has lots of new restaurants. I feel mixed about the gentrification of the neighborhood.
It has been great so far. I haven't had any scary encounters and the University police are typically in sight (either in patrol cars on standing on street corners)
Very student/university-driven. Not a lot of night life, but a nice school community.
