It's a great area on the border of Gold Coast and River North! It's a bit touristy, but is also right in the middle of everything and very walkable.

What did you like most?

Location and it's a good mix of business professionals and graduate students.

What did you like least?

Very touristy and wish there were a fewmore restaurants/bars for locals. However, River North is very close!

Good building in a good location for commute (red line), fast dining, and shopping (Michigan Ave.). Slightly longer walk for bars and grocery stores but still plenty of options in under 10 minutes.
