Great NW Side Neighborhood

We've been living in Belmont Heights for over 4 years and we love it. It's a quiet neighborhood with lots of kids. There are some really good mom-and-pop style restaurants on Harlem and on Irving Park Rd that we go to when we can. There's also a ton of parks and forest preserves nearby.
