Lincoln Park Reviews
I am at the perfect distance of big city and residential living with urban vibes. Local restaurants and boutiques are bountiful, and there is always some cozy cafe or bar popping up. Nightlife exists, but it is never so loud or dangerous (or barf covered). Parking can be a challenge, but if you are here long enough, you will learn the tricks. There is greenery, trails, and the lakefront which are wonderful! Very commuter friendly, by public transportation or foot (or bike!), probably more so than by personal vehicle. You are a mere 30 minutes or less from anything you could imagine, whether that be theater, comedy, athletics, sports, zoo, museums, or any other historical memorabilia. People are generally friendly, and you could ask the nearest pass-byer for directions just about anywhere. Markets and stores do exist, and you will pay a slightly higher price for your everyday items. As long as I am living in Chicago, I do not want to leave the Lincoln park area.
Lincoln Park is one of Chicago's superior neighborhoods! Lincoln Park is one of the safest communities in the city and by far has some very cool homes that everyone wants to live in. We are home to some very original and cool shops, restaurants, and things to do outside of work, school, and responsibilities. Lincoln Park also has great access to the Chicago Transit Authority train and bus lines. Overall, Lincoln Park is an amazing community that cannot be overlooked!
Lincoln Park is a very family friendly neighborhood with tons of amazing restaurants. I feel very safe here. It is very pretty as all the streets are lined with trees and most people have nicely kept 'front lawns' (patches of grass/plants next to the sidewalk in front of their houses). All the schools, including elementary and high school, are very good which relieves stress from Chicago's selective enrollment high school system.
