We’ve all heard the old adage, a picture is worth a thousand words… pair that quote with new technology and bam, no wonder why Instagram has 150 million plus users who are uploading over 55 million pictures a day. OPA has to agree that this little app is hot. And like with any other relevant social media OPA wants to keep up with the trends.
So what should OakParkApartments.com take pictures of….. because we just didn’t want to be random.
OPA thought long and hard and this is what we came up with:
Well, for one, Oak Park has many, vibrant social activities that happen right in our own backyard. Great restaurants, events like Oaktoberfest, concerts, theater, farmer’s markets, art’s district, shopping and more… makes living in Oak Park lively, downright fun and definitely picture-worthy.
Architecture, well that’s another no-brainer, with Frank Lloyd Wright having his home and studio right in the heart of Oak Park there is no doubt there are many amazing properties with details that don’t go into most buildings that are constructed now-a-days which will make for some unique shots.
History, Oak Park has that too and is proud of it’s heritage. From the Village’s original settlers, the Kettlestrings to other notables like Ernest Heminway, Frank Lloyd Wright and current day celebs (yep, Betty White was born in Oak Park) there is a lot of history within Oak Park’s borders so we’ll try to somehow capture that on film.
Chicago. Oak Park is only 10 miles from the heart of downtown Chicago and is easily accessible by the blue & green “L” lines, the Metra and the Eisenhower Expressway. So more fun, excitement, museums, sports teams, concerts, food & festivals just a hop, skip and a jump away from Oak Park makes keeping photo tabs on Chicago happenings a must.
Who doesn’t like a renovation project? Well, with over 40 plus vintage properties OPA is working hard to not only maintain our buildings but to make sure we are sensitive to the need to preserve what is so special about these multi-unit walk ups along with making sure tenants have the 21st century amenities that make for comfortable, modern day living. Hey, we all love a before and after pic, right?
#GiveBack – in other words OPA will be sharing pics of how we, as a company, are trying to make a difference in our community and hopefully that will build awareness of all the great causes that are right under our Oak Park noses.
So give us a follow on Instagram and see Oak Park through our lens!
