Get to know New Eastside

New Eastside is actually (mostly) new, a rarity in a downtown. It’s a small neighborhood full of luxury high-rise residential buildings, and the people who call it home enjoy a virtual peninsula of city into spaces of green and blue. To the north is the Chicago River and the Riverwalk, to the south is Millennium Park, and to the east is Lake Michigan. It’s even centered around its own six-acre park. Knowing that you can probably imagine that the views are among the best in the city. For a neighborhood so smack-dab in the middle of everything recreational and cultural, New Eastside can be surprisingly quiet. There’s little retail, restaurants, or nightlife within its confines, though all of that is an easy walk away. Indeed, easy walking is sort of the point, as it’s one of the most pedestrian-friendly areas of the city.

Living in Chicago

There may be people who live in Chicago who do not love Chicago, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one of them. From the shores of Lake Michigan to the sprawling suburbs, Chicago is a global metropolis that still manages to be Midwestern friendly. The city has some 600 parks, and 18.5 miles of trail along the shore of the lake and another lining the rivers of downtown. The food is among the best and most varied in the world, thanks in part to a culture fed by Poles and Greeks and Mexicans and Vietnamese as well as a hundred other ethnicities. Museums and performance venues abound, and public art fills green space and public squares. Public transportation is easy, as is reaching either U.S. coast in half a day. Even in the midst of its notoriously frigid winters, you won’t find a warmer city to call home.
