West Loop Reviews
Great neighborhood for easy access to award-winning restaurants and to many offices downtown. While it doesn't have the neighborhood feel of a Lincoln Park, it's great for urbanites!
I have grown up there and seen many changes. I think there should be more diverse opportunities through the neighborhood instead of solely upgrading through gentrification.
Great neighborhood, grew up here and lived here. The elementary schools and high schools in the neighborhood are high achieving. There are a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as markets for buying fresh foods. I have never had a problem with not feeling safe, and the people you meet are friendly.
