I lived in Streeterville as a student going to Northwestern. It was welcoming community filled with architecture, a museum, cafes, and parks!

Streeterville is a windy neighborhood by Lake Michigan, and perhaps the coldest and wettest that I've known in the great city of Chicago. Yet it is close to many high-end restaurants and stores such as Niu and Whole Foods, urban attractions such as Navy Pier, and many transportation routes including buses, individual transport and green transport. It's an overall good place to go for diversity in entertainment and a practical place to be - especially for those such as myself who appreciate cold weather.
Streeterville is busy with plenty to do in whatever direction you go in. Right next to the medical district downtown Chicago (Northwestern) a short walk from the Loop and Navy Pier.
