Chicago - Near North Side
Combining urban with residential, couture with cuisine, the Near North neighborhood is a small section of downtown Chicago offering a blend of historic luxury homes, modern condos, studio lofts, and a long-established air of pride.
Near North is one of Chicago's most sophisticated neighborhoods, and even though it lies right near the heart of the city there is enough grass, trees and flowers to keep you in touch with nature.
The Near North neighborhood is bounded by Division Street to the north, Chicago Avenue to the south, State Street to the east and the Chicago River to the west.
It may be more convenient NOT to own a car in this neighborhood, with all the permits, restrictions, meters, traffic and a serious lack of parking spaces. However, the neighborhood is a veritable hub of public transportation!
Near North lies "smack dab in the middle of two Red Line subway stops: Clark & Division and Chicago. Both will take you either north to Howard or south to 95th with stops in Lincoln Park, the Loop, Wrigley Field and US Cellular Field (White Sox) along the way, so take your pick. As for the bus system, the #66 Chicago Avenue line will take you into West Town and beyond, as will the #70 Division Avenue bus. A few blocks away the #22 Clark or #36 Broadway buses are a great way to travel north and south, as is the #29 State Street bus, which goes south along State Street shopping, as well as to the Harold Washington Library.
But the true beauty of this neighborhood? If a downtown location is your destination, your own two feet are all you need. The Near North area is mere steps away from the Magnificent Mile, the Chicago River, and it's a quick jaunt to the Loop."
"Near North now has one of the widest ranging spectrums of upscale shops and elegant dining in Chicago. Fashionistas, epicures and energetic types alike will feel right at home in this haute neighborhood. Foodies will also appreciate and enjoy stocking up on fresh fare at the Division and Dearborn Farmer's Market, which runs from May through October. And from April through December, they can take one of the Chicago's Near North Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tours to get a better handle on local eateries."
"While Near North is a mere few blocks away from Chicago's legendary Magnificent Mile, this area is a great place to spend a peaceful shopping day, away from crowds, hordes and tourists."
