I like it here. It's nice, in unit dish washer and laundry, central air. I don't particularly like having a doorman, but they are nice and knowing they're there makes me feel safer. People keep to themselves which I like and I'm close to the cta.

Great neighborhood with lots of new stores and restaurants opening every day. Lots of building going on so it might get overcrowded in the next few years. Building itself it nice, great doormen.
