I've lived in Lincoln Park for almost 3 years and absolutely love it. The area is relatively safe, there are tons of bar/restaurants, the lake is a short walk away, there are many public transit options and there's an overall energetic vibe since it's full of young professionals and new families.

This neighborhood combines the ease of the city with the feeling of a more suburban neighborhood. There are many nearby bars, restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. At the same time, there are great schools and side streets that feel very residential.

Lincoln Park is the perfect neighborhood for anyone post-graduate and up. Great restaurants, fun bars, and close proximity to other popular Chicago neighborhoods, you really can't go wrong anywhere in the neighborhood. Mostly populated by college kids, young professionals, and new parents, you always feel safe when walking around. Everything important is within walking distance and when the weather is warm, there is nothing better than walking around Lincoln Park Zoo or the Lakefront Trail. Additionally, the red line, purple line, and brown line are all easily accessible. There are also ample bus stops and bike lanes.

i love this neighborhood. It's the perfect place for twenty somethings who are out of the Wrigleyville/Lincoln Park phase. It's a little pricey, but offers everything from entertainment to the beach.

Living in East Lincoln Park (Fullerton and Clark) is probably one of the most lively areas in all of Chicago. Every direction offers something new only steps away. Close to many bars, shops and restaurants along Clark St between Fullerton and Diversey. To the east is the beautiful Lincoln Park, Alfred Caldwell Lilly Pond, Lincoln Park Zoo and lake Michigan Beaches. Groceries stores are plentiful (Big Apple, Trader Joes, Walmart Express) as well as convenience stores such as Walgreen's or local bodegas. Most daily tasks can be accomplished by walking, which is nice because parking is limited and hard to come by.

Love this neighborhood! Definitely the best part of this apartment. Rent is a great price in comparison to the rest of the area. Walking distance to the zoo, parks, the beach, bars, shopping. Not really close to trains, but it's not a problem because there are many convenient bus lines and Uber/Lyft is generally a good price from most places in the city.
