Lincoln Park Reviews

I am a college student who has lived in Lincoln Park for the past four years. It has been a great neighborhood to live in: safe, lots to do, clean, and friendly. The biggest downside is the cost of living. Lincoln Park is extremely expensive, which is not college friendly. Overall, a great experience!
Review Lincoln Park
Eclectic mixture of commercial and residential life alongside its fantastic location along Lake Michigan make this neighborhood great for both young professionals as well as families. Elementary and high schools within the area are both top performers in the area. The only main concern would be the price of living, however if one can afford to live in this area there are very few others that compare within the Chicago area for overall combination of dining, housing, recreation and education. Situated outside of downtown but still within easy access to public transportation.
I live in the area due to its vicinity to De Paul University. It is a fairly upscale neighborhood with a myriad of places to eat, shop, and browse. Grocery stores are fairly close with Trader Joes on Diversey and Walmart Neighborhood Market and Target on Clark St. There are many elementary schools nearby, which allow for options for parents who are looking to move into the area. It is also right outside of downtown which allows for the quiet of a neighborhood, but the ability to experience downtown through a 15 minute train ride. Overall, Lincoln Park is a great place to live and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
