Streeterville — 8.2/10 Rating (based on 32 neighborhood reviews)
I like the Streeterville neighborhood so far, there is a good amount of grocery stores and restaurants. My only complaint is that there is limited El train lines in the area.

Pros: very safe, great transportation options in the Red line and all the busses you can think of, close to all of the entertainment and social life options of River North without the price

Cons: 35-50 minute commute via the 2 to Hyde Park (but it's a great bus! Mostly U of C commuters and very reliable.)

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.

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 like to live down town, close to the lake in a little less foot-traffic area, Streeterville is great! I enjoy how close to the water it is and that it doesn't always have the foot traffic River North does.

This is an extremely safe area, but there is a lot of noise. The nearest grocery store is Trader Joe's, which is about a 10 minute walk. There is also a Whole Foods about a 10 minute walk away as well

I think the area is nice because there is so much around... but it can get a little hectic with tourists since it is so close to Navy Pier. Especially in the summer. It is a little bit of an older crowd- I am 25 and am considered young. But everyone is nice and there is a lot to do

It is not much of a neighborhood in the implied sense of the word, lots of tourists always around, but it is so clean and feels safe! There is always something you can do when you walk outside your door.

Streeterville is a very residential neighborhood so there isn't a ton of nightlife, but there are some nice restaurants! River North is only a short walk away so sometimes it's nice to come home to a quieter neighborhood.

The neighborhood is amazing. WholeFoods and Target are both 1-2 blocks away, as is a movie theater and beer/liquor store. Not to mention, Ohio Street Beach is literally less than a 5 minute walk.

It's tough in the summer with all of the tourists running in and out of Navy Pier. Lakeshore also floods right outside of the building, but it's always bustling and it feels safe. It's great to have the Target right down the street and several grocery stores in the neighborhood.

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.

Best neighborhood in Chicago! Clean, safe, close proximity to a lot of dining and entertainment, easy to get around. The only issue is the traffic and crowds on summer weekends - but that's because everyone wants to be here.

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.

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.

This building is located in the center of everything you could possibly need. Whole foods and Jewel within walking distance, easy to get to the lake front, and plenty of good restaurants and bars. The only down side is that it does not really have a "neighborhoody" feel.

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.
