I LOVE HYDE PARK

When I first visited my apartment prior to moving in I fell in love with the street. Kenwood Avenue is a charming tree-line swirling street. It reminds me of my child hood. Anywho, the Apartment is amazing. It's a 2 bedroom, 2 Bathroom duplex. Which is ideal for my roommate and I. The apartments layout is awesome for entertaining. We had to do a bit of work to clean the place up and repair some of the outlets that were without power and the bathrooms which had minor plumbing issues but our landlord has been pretty accommodating in moving those repairs along. All things considered I think we found an amazing apartment in the heart of hyde park! You can't beat the price or location! <3

Getting around Hyde Park


Hyde Park Reviews

107 reviews
The convenience of getting to campus cannot be beat. I feel relatively safe as a young woman here. I have never been robbed thus far. Thankfully there are lots of police officers. I get my groceries at hyde park produce and whole foods, which are both pretty convenient. The 172 is great. I just wish it ran later at night for late classes.
Great neighborhood. 53rd street is very safe. Security at every corner and University buses run up and down it all day. Also very close to many food/grocery options.

You may a premium for the amenities/convenience, but excellent location if you’re okay with bus commute or biking
It's not the first place I would have liked to live, but it's closest to the university. The biggest drawbacks are that there are no traditional grocery stores or affordable food options. It is nice to be close to the lake and promontory point.
Hyde Park is great to be in for 1L since you'll need to be at the law school *all the time.* It's charming, but really there's not a whole lot going on here. The lack of good restaurants is really brutal.
Close to campus, lots of restaurants. Not super close to grocery stores anymore, but not too bad. Lots of beautiful trees and old brownstones, not too crowded, housing tends to be very affordable.
Plenty of restaurants and shops. I've rarely felt unsafe, but of course, I've heard about other people's negative experiences with safety in the area.
I live five minutes from Whole Foods, Target, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, the 2 bus, the 172 bus, etc. Everything is within walking distance.
Kinda isolated from Chicago's social scene and cooler neighborhoods, but very convenient at least. Easy to focus in first year.
