Streeterville — 8.5/10 Rating (based on 89 neighborhood reviews)
I enjoy living in Streeterville since it's near many of Chicago attractions without feeling overwhelming like in the Loop. I am able to walk around safely at night and I like going jogging in Millennium Park. My biggest complaint would be the lack of greenery in the area and how the city can feel a little bit insulating at times. Public transportation is great. This area is pricey, which is why I decided to have a roommate.

Walking distance to the Ohio Street Beach, Navy pier and Michigan Avenue. Convenient location to grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, banks, post offices, gyms, pet stores, dental offices, hospitals, etc. Plenty street parking spots and garages with early bird special rate. Buses are available on some streets.

Before I moved to my current place, I heard that this neighborhood is a kind of very nice and clean region compare to nearby areas. There are a lot of friendly people and so beautiful with flower decoration in spring. Also, it's very very safe so I don't have to worry about living by myself.

Streeterville is essentially a more remote (and better smelling) River North. Close to Navy Pier, so can be congested in the summer. Right on the river, which is great. Right down the road from Northwestern Medical and law school, so pretty safe neighborhood overall.

Not a lot to do in the neighborhood, which is mostly banks, nail salons, cafes, and Northwestern Memorial hospital, but it is nice and close to the lake, secure and quiet, and there are bars and restaurants if you're willing to walk 20-30 min.

Streeterville is located in downtown Chicago. Although it is conveniently located to Northwestern and Michigan Avenue, the general vibe is still very touristy and the restaurant scene isn't the most diverse or unique.

The Streeterville area was still pretty sleepy when I moved here three years ago. Since then, there has been an incredible amount of development. New luxury apartments and condos are going up, several new restaurants, a brand new target and Whole Foods. Its become a great place for professionals who enjoy living downtown, but without the club crowds in River North.

There are a few buses that are near by that help get residents down to the loop. Also it's pretty easy to walk around and the cross walks are pedestrian friendly. I'm always able to get around by foot and buses/trains. Streeterville is a very safe neighborhood and I've never felt unsafe walking around at night. The streets are well lit.
Noise is not usually too big of an issue in this neighborhood; it's pretty quiet at night.
There are multiple grocery stores nearby for multiple choices. Also there are a bunch of great places to eat so one will not get bored with options.

If you are ever bored in Streeterville, you have no one to blame but yourself. within a 10 minute walk, you have access to world class dining, several theaters, and the best shopping in the midwest. Also, being in the heart of downtown public transportaion is plentiful. The downside is you have to pay for all these things. Everything is more expensive in Streeterville. We find it worth driving 20-30 minutes out to do grocery shopping.

Close to the Loop, fairly safe area. Lots of noise between daytime construction and the nearby hospital. Multiple grocery stores within walking distance, including the fancy Whole Foods. Restaurants tend more toward chain than local. Movie theatres and entertainment options within blocks, Ohio St Beach and Navy Pier nearby. Post office nearby, albeit a very slow post office. New Target also! A number of buses run from Navy Pier to the Loop, west on Grand and north to Chicago, and other buses can be picked up from Michigan for additional north/south options. Overall a great place to live, but not for someone looking for "unique character" in a neighborhood.
