So You're Thinking of Moving to Hyde Park: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=84243

5. Okay, so how do I stay safe in Hyde Park?

While there is nothing that can make one fully immune from crime, there are a few very simple things you can do to remain safe in Hyde Park. These include being aware of your surroundings when walking in the neighborhood, avoiding cutting through alleys and parks during the evening, and taking advantage of the services provided by the University and the UCPD. The University runs a very comprehensive evening bus service (more on that later) as well as a late night shuttle service. The UCPD will also follow any student in a patrol car should they want to walk to a location within Hyde Park and not feel safe doing so alone. Finally, there are many emergency buttons located in the neighborhood which will summon police to the location of the button press, in usually under 1-2 minutes.

6. I'm moving to Hyde Park and need to find a place to live. Where should I live and how do I find an apartment?

There are many private apartments in the neighborhood of Hyde Park as well as University run graduate student housing. As far as the University housing goes, the apartments available are located in various locations, mainly around 51st and 53rd streets, as well as in the New Grad residence building on 60th street, just east of the law school. Of the other apartment buildings in Hyde Park, one of the more popular student residences is Regents Park, near 51st street (also known as East Hyde Park Boulevard) and the Lake. A review of Regents or any other apartment building is beyond the scope of this guide, but, you can usually find information on any facilty by asking on the board, as there are plenty of people willing to help.

17. I'm hungry and want to go out to eat or buy some groceries. What are my options?

I saved this question for last so that it could be closest to the map I have included below. There is one main grocery store in Hyde Park, Treasure Island, located at 55th Street and Lake Park ave. There is also a smaller store, Hyde Park Produce, at 53rd Street and Woodlawn Ave., which carries excellent fresh produce as well as a small selection of grocery items and fresh meats / cheeses. Beyond that there are several small markets and corner stores as well as eating options within the neighborhood which I have located on the map below, which displays grocery and restaurnts near general points of interest, as well as the CTA 171 / 172 routes, and the U of C Evening bus routes.

General heads-up, but it looks like they're discontinuing the 171/172 bus lines, so don't let that play too much of a role in where you end up living.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn that blows bigtime... I was totally planning on relying on 171 and 172. :(

At least it looks like Regents has some free shuttle coverage for UChicago students (LinkRemoved), but only in the evenings. I hope the University comes up with something to cover those bus routes after they are discontinued in August.


It also goes to the Windermere and the Del Prado I think (MAC properties). They'll come up with something else, but it may be different or shuttles.

I remember someone said parking is available along the midways early in the morning, and someone suggested going home for dinner and drive to school (there is free parking after hours) to study at night... Just wondering if it is still a feasible option now :)

ps: anyone plan to check out the restaurant week? :P

living only 2 hours drive from Chicago, a weekend in town usually means sampling 4-5 restaurants and going home with 3-4 lbs extra weight... :P finally I can ease up a little because I will have at least 3 years (maybe not 1L) to explore the restaurants in Chicago :lol: :lol:

calling for fellow foodies!!
