My Humble Living In Alsip, Illinois 3.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 10, 2018) Enjoying, a good meal at Jenny's Steak after a Friday night football game used to be a routine living in Alsip. With many parks and housing that is very affordable, this is a great place to live if you want to experience the full spectrum of American living. The city of Chicago i ...Read More s a beautiful place, so the suburbs have the same charm.

There is plenty to do, as shopping in Crestwood will allow you to find just about anything you need to dress for any occasion. There is an urban vibe to the majority of residents, and the areas confirm that we are living in one of the largest metro areas in the world!

The park system and bus routes run parallel in many instances allowing you to actually take a day off and enjoy a ride and walk through one of our many park systems. I particularly enjoy Apollo Park on Saturdays when everyone goes kite flying. I must say that at my age it doesn't take a lot to impress me but I am impressed by Alsip! Read Less
