"Hammond Indiana is within an easy commute to Chicago and the Downtown area either by car or train, offering you all the advantages of city living, but not at the city cost. The neighborhoods are structured like any city, with easy access to shopping and recreation, but unlike other Chicago suburbs, by residing in Indiana, the cost of living is more reasonable. Housing, utilities, and taxes are less, and the communities are all going through a revitalization. People finding themselves priced out of living in Chicago, are discovering that Hammond offers them a reasonable alternative to those mounting costs, without facing hours of commuting to their jobs."
