About this listing
This is a great vintage 2 bedroom apartment with a modern feel in the best location in Wicker Park, 1 block east of Division & Damen. It's in one of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods and close to 2 blue line subway stops.
The apartment is in a great location giving you access to one of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods for restaurants, bars, etc. and close enough to be downtown for all the tourist sites in 20-30 minutes.
I am a 20-min bus ride to the Magnificent Mile/Water Tower Place area and the lake front, or a 25 - 30 minute bus/train ride to Millennium Park and the loop with 1 connection.
The main bedroom has a Queen size bed (VERY comfortable) and the 2nd bedroom has a full size futon. There is also a full size futon in the living room, if necessary. Also, not pictured, it's possible to have a TV in one of the rooms which uses a digital converter. The TV in the living room has Cable.
All guests will receive their own shelf in refrigerator and cabinets. The apartment is close (10 minutes walking or 3 minute bus ride) to Jewel or Mariano's (grocery stores), so you can make your own meals if preferred. You will have clean linens and towels ready for you when you arrive. I have WI-FI (will give you the password when you arrive). Absolutely no smoking inside or outside the apartment.
Just 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Michigan Ave and Water Tower Place. The neighborhood, Wicker Park, borders East Village & Ukrainian Village to the south and Bucktown to the north. It's 8 - 12 minutes walking distance to two Blue Line stops (Damen or Division). The Division station is just 3 stops from downtown and after a 10 minute ride you can be enjoying the sights and sounds of Chicago's famous "Loop". The local area has many restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping and plenty of charm. Nightlife hot spots within walking distance include Fat Pour, The 50/Fifty, Bangers & Lace, Beauty Bar and many more. Great restaurants such as Smoke Daddy, Mana, Mirai Sushi, Prasino, Carriage House, Big Star to name a FEW.
There are lots of yoga studios and coffee shops in the area too! I can direct you to studios within walking distance.
If you have a car parking on my street is free (no permit required). I do have permits for 1 or 2 streets near the apartment that require them. The place is also easily accessible to downtown via public transportation. The Division and Damen buses are 1 block away and the North Ave bus is an 8 minute walk away.
-9 (Ashland Ave bus): South takes you to the green/pink lines or North takes you close to Wrigley Field.
-70 (Division bus): VERY fast and runs through the Gold Coast (just north of River North)
-66 (Chicago Ave bus): Direct to the Mag Mile (John Hancock builing)/Navy Pier or can transfer you to the blue, red, and brown lines for getting downtown or Millenium Park.
Getting downtown takes about 20-30 minutes by any of these means.
Anything else you want to know please ask - Thanks!

I love traveling to other countries, learning about other cultures and seeing live music. My favorite countries so far are Brazil, Ethiopia, Turkey, Nepal and so many others! I left the corporate world and started a job that allows me to do that. Overall, I am an easy going guy who enjoys meeting new people and eating good food!
I'm a very active person, so I can definitely give you tips and information on places to eat, concerts, non-touristy things to do in Chicago and anything else you might want to know to make your trip to Chicago more enjoyable. I love telling people about all the great things you can do in Chicago as well as providing information that makes their trip a lot easier.
