Interaction with guests
If you find you are in need of something, just ask. We are just upstairs and happy to assist! We are available as much as or as little as you want. Keyless entry means easy access for you and no pressure to make nice with us or a stoic doorman. We will leave you a homemade local map highlighting our favorite haunts, city activity/museum brochures for you to grab or peruse, and public transportation information. We are here to help or not; whichever you prefer. There are 3 small and super interesting grocery stores within walking distance 3 blocks away and a full grocery store just 6 blocks away. Lots and lots of amazing restaurants within walking distance as well as great coffee shops. We really love our neighborhood and are so happy you will get to experience it too. Our neighbors are nice and quiet. It is a very relaxing spot in the city, but you can get to the action really fast.
Other things to note
Cash will be accepted on CTA buses and will cost the same cash base fare of $2.25. Customers can also load cash onto Ventra Cards at vending machines and pay a $2.00 for a single ride. Retail locations at train stops and airports will also accept cash for single rides or any other CTA pass and load it to a Ventra Card. There is a Ventra website (URL HIDDEN) and also an App (URL HIDDEN) that you can use instead of a card .
Street parking is not that challenging, but you may have to circle the block a little bit after 7pm. There is non-meter/non permit parking on the streets just outside the apartment. It is really not necessary to have a car in Chicago as public transportation is great. Hertz and Enterprise have car rental sites in the neighborhood if you need a car to drive outside the city. ZIP Car lots are also close by. And tons of Uber and Lyft drivers are always nearby.
There are numerous ways to get here from the airport. The quickest ways are by taxi (about $50 from both Ohare and Midway) and Uber or Lyft (about $35; from both Ohare and Midway). The most economical option is CTA Train where $2.25 will get you anywhere in the city from either airport, including the apartment.
Within 1.5 blocks at Walton and Western on the southeast side of the street is a Divy spot where you can rent bicycles. $9.95 (+ tax) for a 24 hour pass. (URL HIDDEN) Find an available bike and get a ride code at the bike kiosk to unlock it. Take as many short rides (30 minutes or less) as you want while your pass is active. Return your bike to any station, and wait for the green light on the dock to make sure it's locked. If you do not return the bike to one of the many, many stations, there is an additional fee that is not included with your 24 pass. 31-60 minutes is an extra $2; 61-90 minutes is an extra $6; 91+ minutes is an extra $8 per each additional 30 minutes.
