What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Near North Side Chicago

A short walking distance from downtown,, and restaurants. It's unfortunately not as safe as I would hope but it has good areas to walk around (zoo, park, lakefront)with many bars, sotrs

I live near the Lake and it is beautiful to walk on the lakefront. Love to walk on Oak Street which is a beautiful street with Upscale Stores.

It's in a wealthy area with a lot of nice businesses around like La Colombe coffee and Dom's market on Wells Street. I can't really complain much

Very close to bars, restaurants, groceries, etc. Beautiful home in the neighborhood that make the streets look great.

I like that I can walk to everything I need. There are many local business right outside my doorstep and it is very close to downtown.

It is a luxourious neighborhood. Its by the lake. There is lots of shopping and restaurants. There is great people watching
