    "very horrible transportation, I feel really sorry for those who don't have cars. it's a bad , unorganized, and corrupt place to live or visit. only the other part of Merrillville is catered to and kept nice. The part that is closest to Gary NEEDS help with their unreliable transportation! Called bus company 10x with voicemail no one EVER returned my call...Sad.(sums it up)"

    "We've been here for 8 years, and it's one of the best places to live. People are friendly and very diverse, any stores that you could possibly want/need to go to (and ones you don't) are all within about a 5 minute drive, and any restaurant that you want to eat at - sit down or take out - are all within a 5-10 minute drive. There are 3 hospitals very close with every kind of doctors office or clinic you need, and same with dentists and eye doctors. You can be in the city one minute and nature the next. The schools are also very good and the taxes are low."
