What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Oakland Chicago

I like that the people are friendly in my neighborhood. I love being able to walk to the lake front.

The architecture with many of the older buildings is stunning. Many properties have been rehabilitated and the mix of great rehabs and newer buildings is very striking. My friends and I enjoy walking the neighborhood.

In my neighborhood I love the restaurants it's lots of them and I can walk to them and also if I wanted to go to the bar I could walk home
