What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Old Town Chicago

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

Our neighborhood is unique in that it is filled with bars and restaurants. It is also within walking distance from the beach. The commute to downtown/work is also not bad compared to many neighborhoods.

I like to link up with my friends and hang out. I like to go bike riding in the alley and wash cars. Also make money
