What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lincoln Square Chicago

There's the drake corner store the family dollar and the taco place a block away from me and also the bar gamblers is a mile away

Close to the expressway. And grocery stores. I love the fact that we can walk to the aldi from home.

What's unique about my neighborhood is that there's a cemetery that people can walk in. Some of my favorite restaurants is one that has Korea BBQ.

There are quite a few local businesses. The block is relatively quiet. The neigborhood seems to have a very tight-knit Hispani

It has chicago character. Great restaurants. Easy access to major roads. Food is delicious. It's pet friendly with plenty of space. Lots of parks and walking gardens. Bars and restaurants are a big plus.

the food options are great for international cuisines and mexican food. Grocery stores and trains are close.
