Cozy and convenient but overpriced

Old building, common areas not reliably cleaned, was able to find a unit in newer condition, smoking is not allowed but my neighbor definitely smokes indoors, great location for catching CTA buses into downtown or to connect to green and red lines as well as campus shuttles, mail is always delivered, quiet neighbors overall, apartment is overpriced but Mac basically has a monopoly on units in Hyde Park, short walk away from friends who live in high rises and other apartments in East Hyde Park

Hyde Park Reviews

I like Hyde Park. I'm close to everything on 53rd, and most of the time I don't feel unsafe. I'm also close enough to Kenwood that I can walk/run there for a more quiet, less busy experience. Kenwood Park is the best.
There's nothing that compares to being in the neighborhood that UChicago is in. Great restaurants and access to the world class lakefront
I like living in Hyde park- it's close to the law school, and I have all the shops and things I need around.
I really enjoy living in Hyde Park. I love how residential and clean it is. It's a great place to go on walks and explore the beautiful historic houses throughout the area. Yet, it still has plenty of restaurants and places to go. It's nice to live in this residential area close to the Law School and still be only a 20-minute uber away from downtown. Safety is something I think about a lot, but this comes with living in any big city. I try to avoid walking alone at night and walk in groups whenever possible. I never have my music blasting. I also carry my pepper spray and keys in my hand at all times when I'm out walking.
Very close to "downtown" Hyde Park so pretty much everything is around you. Transportation to the University of Chicago is also really close by. So are several CTA bus stops and the Metra. There are several restaurants, grocery stores, and shops close by. The building is truly located in a great place.

There have been very few issues with crime and gun violence around the area but like in every major city, being vigilant is important. I have not been too worried about safety but I am careful because things do happen.
Hyde park isn't the most convenient place to live in Chicago, but it is the most convenient place to get to University of Chicago. At times it may not feel like the safest area, but personally I have never experienced any issues. The commute to school is pretty easy, give or take the accuracy of the bus times.
It's got everything you need. Biggest thing is obviously the proximity to campus.
I love living in Hyde Park, you can view lots of beautiful scenery and easily access to the Loop area for entertainment.
Though Hyde Park is safer area compared to the nearby, needless to say, you should be careful not to walk alone in the nighttime.
