Good living space

Great location, good space for price, though constant renovations and, at times, difficult management can sour the experience. RCN provides a basic plan for free, which includes decent internet and cable, which can be upgraded for cheap. Security is nice and charming, the layout of the building is nice, and the store downstairs is wonderful with very nice and personable staff.

River City- Great Location

Spacious condo for the area, which is close to transit and in a great location for the price. Downsides include lack of temperature control in the winter where the residence becomes extremely hot. Also no airflow within the space any time of year and room does not have window to outside/sunshine. What seems like constant construction in combination with thin walls is inconvenient to say the least.

Gross and terrible

Management are the rudest people ever. Not helpful at all and when you try to get a simple answer they act like they're annoyed. Building maintenance is a joke. The roof leaks when it rains. The building smells awful. The only thing good is the gardening.

South Loop Reviews

Everyone is very friendly and it's a great neighborhood for dog lovers/owners. Great local restaurants and very walkable to absolutely everything you could need. Super close to every subway line. Very safe. Nearby college students can get rather loud on the weekends. Parking is expensive if you need to rent a monthly space.
It's a lot livelier than Hyde Park, and you are far more connected to the rest of Chicago. Printer's Row feels a lot safer too, and I do not feel as concerned when I walk around at night. It has great little bars and restaurants, and is close to a Trader Joe's, Jewel, and Target. There is a Mariano's and Whole Foods a few minutes further away.
The Loop and train stations are easily accessible from Printer's Row. It's also near Grant Park and the Lake, which are great during the summer. There are some decent restaurants and a few bars, but if you're young you'll probably be heading up to River North and further north for a night out. Overall, the neighborhood feels very friendly and has a great location. Also, new construction in the South Loop will surely make Printer's Row even better.
I love South Loop. It's close enough to Hyde Park that you don't feel like you have a terrible commute to get to the law school, and it's in the city enough that you feel like you're in Chicago.
The streets are nice and wide. It's busy, but not too busy. There are grocery stores and a couple of decent food options - it's a perfect compromise for a law student that still wants to be in Chicago proper.

Being near the Roosevelt stop, I think the South Loop is great. It's up and coming, with bars and restaurants, the L right there, and right next to the museums/lakefront.

I would be more hesitant to live very south of Roosevelt, like 18th or so. Things become much quieter and it's a farther walk to things.
Great proximity to Loop, but less touristy than River North and more lively than the West Loop. Downside: gets very congested when there's an event at Soldier Field or in Grant Park.
