Magnificent Mile

A City Within Chicago
Magnificent Mile is one of Chicago's largest and most frequented neighborhoods with a wide array of restaurants, attractions, and shopping destinations to enjoy. The area is home to a massive amount of quality dining options ranging from the city's best Italian food at Spiaggia to satisfying cheeseburgers at the Billy Goat Tavern. Residents swear that there is no better way to escape the work grind than with a happy hour cocktail at the Hancock Building's 96th floor Signature Lounge, but for a more grounded experience, Streeter's Tavern is popular for its cheap beers and pool.

Residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to local attractions. Fans of contemporary art can visit The Museum of Contemporary Art or the Loyola University of Modern Art while the Broadway Playhouse and Lookingglass Theatre offer a mix of both classic and experimental plays to watch. Through the years, Magnificent Mile has gained a reputation as Chicago's premier shopping destination with a host of stores interspersed between three massive shopping malls. A unique neighborhood, Magnificent Mile effortlessly combines comfort, style, and entertainment into one cozy package.

Magnificent Mile — 8.8/10 Rating (based on 6 neighborhood reviews)
The building is located just off of Mag Mile, so there's a lot of people around and great restaraunts and shopping! It's perfect that it's not directly on Mag Mile, however, because you have less congestion and noise around you.

The neighborhood is very bougie, but that's the area around magnificent mile, streeterville, and gold coast (this is the edge of all three)

There are a lot of famous Chicago restaurants and shopping landmarks close by. The only thing I wish there were more of would be grocery stores. There is a Whole Foods, Jewel and Trader Joes, however still 3-4 block walk for me from where I live in the Gold Coast.

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.)

I chose to live here because it's very secure and lots of police are always around. Not too much crime in the area
