What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bucktown Chicago

Love the small businesses and walkability of the area. There are lots of shops, restaurants and activities near by. There is decent parking and public transportation.

I like that the neighborhood is very walkable and very close to public transportation. There are plenty of entertainment options such as plenty of restaurants and bars in the area.

It's has a big softball complex across the road. It is hidden so nobody knows that there's even a street. And no outlet dead end road

The "Eagle" is unique to our neighborhood. It's the bicentennial monument on a small nice area in the middle of a roundabout. Near to that is a small shopping district with restaurants and bars. My favorite being the Harding Tavern.

Nothing it just a great place very nice people good vide and kids play safe ever one know your name just over all nice

I like the bars and restaurants in my neighborhood. I like the parks and running paths. I like that I can walk my dog a lot.
