I took this apartment in order to be close to work, but it is far too much space for only me. Edgewater is a wonderful neighborhood for both short and extended stays - quiet, safe, with nearby beaches, theaters, grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, Lake Michigan Bike Path, and Loyola University. Going downtown? The CTA Red Line is just a 10 minute walk. Be downtown in 40 minutes. Have a car? There is always ample street parking on this block. Great for couples and solo adventurers.
