Great location and affordable for students and young professionals

This building is a 3 story walk-up located just around the corner from the North and Clybourn red line L stop. I live in unit 1R, which is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment that takes up part of the first floor as well as the basement level. The price of our apartment is $3000 ($750 per person), which is very cheap for Lincoln Park, but this is because the basement level is less desirable. The other units in our building definitely cost more. The ceilings in the basement level are really low, which is fine for shorter female residents (like me and my roommates), but taller people would probably have a difficult time living here because they would have to duck their heads constantly. The first-floor level has really high ceilings, though. The kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances and the bathrooms are also completely redone. Our unit doesn't get a ton of light, but I assume the apartments on higher floors do. Although I have not met everyone in the building, it seems like everyone who lives here is between the ages of 21-28, making it ideal for graduate students and young professionals. Overall, I love my apartment, though I would not recommend it for families because of the parties people throw here on the weekends. It is best suited for younger adults living as a couple or with roommates. Again, I would not recommend the basement unit for anyone over 5'8" because the ceilings are extremely low. Otherwise, this is a great building and I have no complaints!

There are a ton of bars, restaurants, gyms, all within walking distance. Public transit very accessible.
Old Town is the best neighborhood in Chicago! We are situated perfectly within all the best Chicago has to offer, everything is super close and walkable, and there is so much to do! It is a historical area where you can learn more about the city's history before the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, and also grab drinks and dinner at fun restaurants!
I love Old Town for its amazing restaurant choices. That and it is beautiful to walk through (Old Town Triangle and side streets). It is wonderful being close to the beach and walking distance to downtown. One of the things I am not particularly fond of is the "Brotastic" atmosphere at most of the bars but it goes with the territory.
The neighborhood is very pretty, but skews a bit older in terms of population. There are a few nice bars and restaurants, but not as many as I'd like. However, proximity to the beach and the zoo is fantastic, and Second City is always a fun time.
Old Town is my favorite Chicago neighborhood. It's between Lincoln park and River North both physically and in terms of the bar scene. Old Town bars and restaurants are a little more low-key than RN, but still super fun and lively.
i love this neighborhood. It's the perfect place for twenty somethings who are out of the Wrigleyville/Lincoln Park phase. It's a little pricey, but offers everything from entertainment to the beach.
Great residential location that's quiet but within walking distance to lots of restaurants and nightlife. Easy to get around the city as the neighborhood is close to many bus and train lines.
Love this neighborhood! Perfect for people in their mid to late 20's looking for a more quiet neighborhood that's still close to all the action.
