You want to make sure you end up in the right area! Want to know more about Melrose Park neighborhoods? Check out the list below.

Southern Melrose Park: Southern Melrose Park feels more like the city's center. That's because it's home to most of the town's main amenities. In southern Melrose Park, particularly on West Lake Street, you can find tons of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and even transportation options. This is a great place to live if you want to be in the heart of the action; search for apartments here if you want to be close to all the amenities you could want.

Central Melrose Park: The center of Melrose Park is a good transition area. It has some businesses and restaurants, but it's mostly residential.

But you can expect to have to have things like your driver's license, copies of your IDs, letters from former landlords, letters of reference, proof of employment, proof income -- and possibly more! You'll also want to have the deposit prepared in case you find the apartment you love! Living near Chicago is something a lot of people do, and if you find just the right place, you'll want to secure it -- don't let it get snatched out from under you!
