looking for a nice neighborhood in Chicago, autumn leaves, pretty homes, lots of greenery.
I really like Edgebrook. The school there is very well regarded too. It is right next to a nature preserve.

Can I break a lease, if I am being threatened by the tenants in the basement apartment and my landlord won't do anything about it.?
You should contact the police and an attorney. There are a lot of different things to consider and an attorney should definitely be involved.
