There’s nothing I didn’t love about living here. Very quiet neighborhood at all times of day and night. So many local options for coffee, bars, restaurants. There was a grocery store walking distance from me. Lively place- plenty of people walking, the bus runs pretty much 24/7 through the neighborhood so easy transportation and only 10-15 mins from The Loop. Apartments are all pretty renovated, and plenty of parks. Also! RIGHT by the lake! Live here, bro.
Only catch? Kinda pricey.

I love Edgewater. It is very close to the water, has terrific restaurants, and is a quiet place to live close to downtown Chicago. I have lived here for many years and don't plan to leave anytime soon. The neighborhood has character, and I feel very safe here.
I love my neighborhood! So much quieter than my last one and my neighbors are great! Great location, walking distance to the beach, grocery store and train, couldn't ask for better!
The area is great with very close variety of places to eat and shop. A short walk to andersonville allows for many options to dine and spend your time.
Edgewater is a clean neighborhood that sits on the lake. It is close to a University, transportation, stores, health, and fitness places. It is beautiful and full of life.
Edgwater is a diverse neighborhood. I have been living here for ,6years and I love it.. it's clean, plenty of restaurants nearby, step away from the lake front and many park. Public transit is easily accessible.
It's a nice place to live and is really close to the beach. It has good schools and there are a lot of kids in the neighborhood and there is plenty to do here. Lickety Split is a great ice cream store nearby and it is easy to get downtown from the Thorndale red line train stop.
I absolutely love living here. Edgewater is a cute and convenient community where everything is very closeby, including the lake. It's the right balance between citylife and peacefulness
Since I moved here in 2012, Edgewater has TRANSFORMED. Buildings look great up and down Sheridan -- and NOW up and down Winthrop in Kenmore. Like Bryn Mawr, Edgewater is a hot area to be in -- buildings that were mediocre are getting revamped. Edgewater is connecting to Bryn Mawr as a solid line of revitalization in the Kenmore- Winthrop pocket. You know when landscaping becomes a priority that people are proud of their community. Most of the negative reviews about Edgewater are pre 2014/15. Whole Foods opened mid-2015 and the area hasn't looked back. Storefronts are filling. New apartment buildings are being constructed. Loyola is adding more construction, more dorms for an increase of students. There are still some vacant store fronts but that is everywhere and results more from decisions of the building owners than the neighborhood. There could always be more done to attract businesses -- but again, that is a city-wide challenge in every neighborhood.
Edgewater is very diverse community and very walk-able. The best thing is its close to downtown but not too close that you get all the traffic and noise. Great place to live.
Edgewater is very diverse and friendly. There is beautiful architecture and a wonderful community. I grew up here with many friends and happy memories. It is a good place for a family. Being so close to the beach is nice.
I loved the diversity of the community and found it to be a cultural diaspora. Over the years, it has become more gentrified and parking can be a challenge. Public transportation is very realiable. People should definitely walk around to get a feel for it, you will be surprised what this community can offer.
I love livnig here, we have all we need around, the houses are pretty and is a lot of green, and during the summer time is the best time for enjoy the beach.
I love how everything is within walking distance but I will admit that nightlife can be a little scary. There are quiet a few beggars in the area with as many had four on each block. However, the police presence is always active and there is always one cop posted on the block with helps with feeling safe. There is also a nice selection of grocery stores in the area such as Jewel, Aldi, a convenient mini mart, and many restaurants nearby. If nothing in the area fits your needs, there are tons of different routes of public transportation that can take you anywhere you please in Chicago.
I love edgewater! Very diverse neighborhood that’s close by the lake and great restaurants. Overall I feel that the only downside is the parking situation and I’d really like to see more community outreach for the homeless that live here.
I live near the lake with a great view. There are 3 big grocery stores nearby and banks. I am also near the Redline Train and the CTA Express buses. It is a wonderful place to live. There are also lots of restaurants. Wow! I love it!
Edgewater location is where I dream to live for long time. The neighborhood is really amazing and so many entertainments are happened all the time. So much fun to be there but one think is that I can complain is rent so high and tax as well but except those it would be the best livable location in Chicago.
