Review- great location but lacks quality amenities

The apartment has a great location, however the appliances such as the oven/stove and sink/faucet could be updated. It's really expensive to wash and dry a load of clothes there ($5 to be exact), which I also do not like. I would love if we had central air conditioning.

Great Apartment Location

Quaint apartment. Pest problems, no urgency with maintenance issues. Love the location--near lake, great shops, great restaurants, close to transit.

Antique-y feel, very wooded. Floors need repair. Large heaters in each room. Noisy in the halls at times, but not bothersome. Great closet space.

530 Diversey

Just moved in this past June and am loving it so far! The neighborhood is great and the apartment itself is so roomy for a 1 bed. Solid vintage apartment in the Lakeview/Lincoln Park area. Been with lakeview associates 4/5 years that I've been in Chicago and they have been great!

Lakeview Associates

I've been pretty disappointed in the maintenance department of this building. There was something wrong with the building's water pressure and we were with out water for a couple days. If you were to turn the sink on it would spit out dirty, lake water and it was disgusting. My building also has a gym area inside that may be from the 1970s. All the equipment is super old and creaky and not safe to lift or run on. I wish they would update that with new gym equipment.

This apartment is in the heart of lakeview, being between Wrigleyville and Boystown. There's no shortage of bars, restaurants, and things to do. It's also close enough to the lake to take a bike ride down to the beach or run along lake shore drive.
It is a very safe and friendly neighborhood. We have block parties in the summer on our block. There are lots of restaurants in our neighborhood and a really big Whole Foods around the corner. There are less chain restaurants and more neighborhoody smaller restaurants and cafe that I love - including the neighborhood favorite Scooter's Frozen Custard down the road.
There are a bunch of different places to choose from if you want to eat out. It is located right by Wrigley Field, so you can actually hear concerts/baseball games if the wind blows in the right direction! A lot of young people live in this neighborhood. Located right by Boys Town. A bunch of different grocery stores nearby- Jewel even has a parking garage if you want to drive! Very close to Public Transit - Red/Brown/Purple line & Buses. Noise level is moderate. Walgreens is a 2 minute walk away if you need milk/eggs or medication immediately. Wish there were more coffee shops, but there are only a few.
Lakeview is a strange neighborhood seeing slow change due to continued popularity and ongoing gentrification. What used to be a low-middle income area full of LGBT people and ethnic minorities is becoming more white bread and upper middle class.

It has numerous sub-neighborhoods, including the super bro-y Wrigleyville and the still queer Boystown. It has a mix of lower income co-op housing and slowly dying out SRO housing with luxury condos and high rises.

The area is generally safe, though the occasional mugging does occur and bar fights happen closer to the stadium on the regular.

The neighborhood is often loud and bustling with people, with hospitals on both ends (St. Jo's and Advocate to the south and Thorek to the north) so a lot of ambient ambulance and fire truck noise is normal, plus sounds from people going to and from the many bars and restaurants lining Broadway, Belmont, Halsted, and Clark. Festivals draw neighbors into the streets and block traffic frequently during the summer, including Pride, Market Days, Lakeview Arts Fest, and others.
More and more people are moving to Lakeview to the point where it's too saturated for my liking. With everyone trying to move to the neighborhood rent prices have increased dramatically. We decided to stay where we are because all the other buildings we looked at in the area had WAY higher rent and they were worse units
I absolutely love living in Lakeview East. Has a very homey community feel, and it is very safe. Right near all my public trans needs and accessible to many entertainment needs (Wrigley Field, Boystown, Lincoln Park, etc). Extremely pet friendly and family oriented neighborhood.
I absolutely LOVE living in Lakeview! This neighborhood has a great neighborhoody feel with so many great bars and restaurants. It is also so close to the lake, and very accessible to getting downtown! I wouldn't want to live anywhere else int he city!
I love living in Lakeview, it has a great community feel and lots of neighborhood events. The neighborhood also includes Wrigleyville (if that's your sort of thing) and Boystown, so tons of places to go out no matter what you're into.
