<p>I know Chicago is located in a neighborhood of Chicago called Hyde Park. What is Hyde Park like?</p>

<p>I really like how it's a residential neighborhood. Although it's technically in the city, it's not overwhelming at all. It's great to see babies in strollers everywhere, families, parks, homes, and restaurants.

<p>I'm a big fan of Hyde Park. City feel, but not all the noise and action of downtown. It's not isolated either, which is nice. It has its own community, which is nice when I get sick and tired of the U of C. Yeah, Hyde Park is a pretty cool place.

<p>Hyde Park is a great neighborhood. I really enjoy living here. It is halfway between city and town in terms of organization, which I think is pretty ideal. I like Hyde Park.

<p>Don't make fun of me, but Hyde Park sometimes reminds me of a Meg Ryan movie-cute, family-oriented, maybe a bit of a love story here and there.Hyde Park is a residential neighborhood of Chicago complete with many families and babies, playgrounds, bookstores, and fab restaurants (like Wok 'N Roll!).
