Standish Neighborhood News and Events

Standish & Ericsson are stable, thriving, yet quiet neighborhoods. Beautiful parks, playgrounds, recreational facilities, schools (both public and private) and the historic Roosevelt Community Library are amenities for singles and families. Successful small businesses offer convenience and personal attention to shoppers, while all benefit from the neighborhoods' low crime rate, safety and sense of security. The arrival of light rail, with the 38th Street Station in Standish and the 46th Street Station in Ericsson, has brought new energy, development and amenities to our neighborhoods.
