Hyde Park — 7.9/10 Rating (based on 105 neighborhood reviews)
Hyde Park is a historic neighborhood with a lot of local flavor and a defensible restaurant / bar scene. Plus, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Target all recently opened locations here, so there's an abundance of grocery store options.

I personally loved living close to campus, for access both to Harper Center and to the broader UChicago campus. I feel much more integrated with the rest of the university as a result of proximity and availability.

I don't get why people dislike Hyde Park so much. Although, to be fair, I do not go out much and when I do, I have a car. But, I really like being able to walk to school everyday rather than have to commute. Plenty of grocery options, especially now that trader joe's is open. Decent number of restaurants around and they're good; nothing spectacular. As for safety, be aware and don't walk by yourself at 2am; use common sense and you'll be fine.

Very important to live in Hyde Park as a 1L so that you're close to the library and able to socialize casually with classmates on weeknights. Some people move downtown their 2L or 3L year but I actually stayed in Hyde Park all 3 years because I like the convenience. 53rd street has way more going on than it used to (new bars, new gyms and yoga studies, tons of restaurants). I would rather uber downtown to go out twice a week than deal with a long commute to school every weekday.

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.

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 gentrifying pretty hard, which means there's an interesting mix of local-character-type places and new-high-end places.

The safety concerns tend to be way overblown. There's literally an officer on every corner. Just keep some situational awareness and everything'll be ok.

Hyde Park Produce has amazing selection and prices for fresh foods. It can be a bit annoying to get other stuff, because the main options are HPP, Treasure Island, or a delivery service, all of which are overpriced.

Most of the high end housing is clustered along the lake, especially between 51st and 55th. You can get some a LOT of bang for your buck south of the Midway, but that comes with its own tradeoffs. The Woodlawn-Ellis-53rd-55th area is mostly standard 3-story apartment buildings with a good compromise of location, quality, price.

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.

Hyde Park is pretty nice and generally feels safe, but it is still pretty close to the South Side. It's important to be aware when walking around at night or on your own. Campus police has a big presence in the neighborhood so there's that. There's a decent selection of restaurants, and it's pretty cool to be living in the same neighborhood in which President Obama used to live.

Hyde Park is the BEST. It's beautiful, active community of people who just really care about the neighborhood. I feel safer living in Hyde Park than any other neighborhood I've lived in Chicago (Lakeview, Logan, Wicker) because the people who live in HP have done so deliberately; they came here either due to the University or simply a desire to live here, which means people say hi on the street, strike up conversations in grocery lines, remember you when you see them at brunch, etc. That being said, I wouldn't recommend it for people who want to be in the middle of the action (the Loop). I chose HP because I have no patience for the bustle....and because it's way cheaper. My apartment would rent for twice as much if it were near MPP.

If I manage to catch the bus, it's about 15 minutes during busy times of the day or like 9 minutes at non-busy times. I can also walk to school in about 20 minutes, so it's not bad even if I miss the bus or if there are too many people already on the bus so it just drives by without even stopping (which happens frequently before 10 am). I've never had any problems where I live, and I regularly walk around at very odd hours like 3 am or whatever. Of course, I don't recommend doing that. It only takes once.

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.

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).

Residence Place of Hyde Park
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).

The area is very diverse relative to the rest of Chicago (other neighborhoods are rather segregated), and very safe generally because of the CPD on patrol and the emergency alert buttons on nearly every block in case you do need help.

The restaurants are nothing to write home about, but they provide a reasonable selection and there are some well-deserving student favorites throughout the area. More and better have been opening quite regularly.

There is less noise than living downtown, which is a plus for some but not for others - your call.

Instacart delivers, otherwise your options without a car are Treasure Island and Hyde Park Produce (generally preferred by students, with better quality and cheaper than TI).

The buses and shuttles, combined, get you all over the place very quickly.
