I like the convenience of the neighborhood in the immediate vicinity of the school (I think it's called streeterville), but I haven't heard anything about it being family friendly. I have a 10-year-old son who is NOT happy about having to relocate to Chicago. I'm looking for a place that would be comfortable for him and has a good public neighborhood school (I can't afford private school for him AND law school for me )
Are there families with school-age children living in Streeterville? If so, which apartments are "kid friendly"? What is the neighborhood school like?
I've also researched the Lincoln Park area and based on what I've seen it's wonderful for families. How is the commute from that area? Do a lot of students live there? And what about the neighborhood schools?
I should also mention that I have a dog, he's a 5lb chihuahua, so a pet friendly place is a must.
Any insight would greatly be appreciated...thanks!
i actually live in lincoln park. the commute from there would be very easy. the 151 bus goes right down to michigan ave and drops you at chicago and you're a 5 min walk from campus at that point. total trip takes 20 min at most. lincoln park is family friendly and dog friendly. a lot of park area for playing with dog and child. the lincoln park zoo is right there (and is free). To my knowledge, the schools there are good as well.
I don't know much about streeterville.
Thanks for the feedback. Lincoln Park sounds like an ideal location.
