River North Reviews
Very Convenient plenty of things to do and great commute options. There's the EL & Metra, Divy & uber or zip car. You don't need a car as many places are walking distance. For those cold snowy nights; uber is usually $6-10 pending where you're going!
River North is fantastic! Lots to do and is in a great spot in the city. Not entirely affordable, however.
A very nice neighborhood, but the general attitude is that people in this area are better (and more entitled) than those around them. I guess that is what happens when your annual rent is the same as the average person's salary.
