The neighborhood (financial district) is non-existent in terms of bars/restaurants. However, I enjoy living here as it is central to the city. I can hop on any of the Ls within a block from me if I want to go out for the night. I enjoy the building. Also, there are two nearby dog parks (both 5 minutes away) which is great for any pet owners. Although there are no amenities, the building's assessments are cheap compared to others.
