This neighborhood could never get better as long a there are drug dealers and parents who allow their children to roam the streets, the best thing is to move out because the cops are always too busy to help our community!

Near the intersection of 120th @ Central is North Harbor;however to this map this is Green Meadows. Anyways, using this map, the nice area of Green Meadows, with nice houses and nice neighborhoods is located South of the 105 freeway or South of Imperial. This areas have some houses with no fences and are well kept. This area is next to Watts. I hope like in Watts this area gets redevelop. The residents of this area do also need access to grocery stores, safe entertainment, and option to buy new houses too.

I remember going to visit my girl and she hadn't made it home yet, so I parked and went to the pay phone to call her. I've roamed the streets of the Southside of Chicago, so it was not a problem to do the same in Green Meadows, right? I almost thought I was talking to my mother, the way she was yelling at me to get off that corner at 2am! Thanks, Ms. D!
