Chicago is, perhaps more than most cities, a city of neighborhoods. From the broad boulevards of Lincoln Park, to the arty avenues of Pilsen, each and every neighborhood in this city possesses its own distinct energy and unique charm. Each neighborhood is worth learning a little more about. So, every other week, we’ll be featuring another neighborhood on this section of the blog, and we’ll interview someone living in that neighborhood—Someone capable of giving us the inside scoop on their ‘hood!
This week I sat down with Jennifer Costa and talked to her about her experience living in Greek Town.
Q: How long have you been living in Greek Town?
A: I’ve been living here for three years.
Q: Do you own or rent?
A: I own. I lived here for a year while renting. Then I made the jump, and decided to purchase a condo of my own. It’s small, but I really love it, and I love knowing that it’s totally mine.
Q: Why did you decide to settle down in Greek Town?
A: Well, I work nearby, so the location was pretty much ideal for me. I also love Greek food, so that definitely helped me decide as well!
Q: What do you like most about Greek Town?
A: Well, like I said, I love Greek food, so I spend a lot of time hanging out at the various restaurants and cafes around the neighborhood. I also like feeling like I’m right in the heart of Chicago—I’m close to just about everything, and it doesn’t take me too long to get anywhere.
Q: Do you intend to continue living in Greek Town for a while?
A: Definitely. I’m really happy with my condo here, and I hope to continue living in it for at least another five years or so.
Q: Would you encourage others to purchase a house or condo of their own?
A: Yes, I really would. I think that buying that condo was one of the best decisions I ever made!
