Interaction with guests
I live in another apartment in the building, so I will be available if you have any questions or need anything during your stay.
Lincoln Park is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Chicago, for residents and visitors, alike, because of all it has to offer: its close proximity to the lake, park and zoo; its boutique shopping, grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, bars, live music venues, farmers' markets, street festivals, and more! It's central location is the perfect home-base for exploring Chicago and experiencing some local charm; only 3.5 miles to the loop (city center), 2.5 miles to Michigan Ave(shopping), 1.5 miles to Wrigley Field (Cubs Baseball), 0.5 miles to DePaul University and 0.5 miles to the park, zoo and lake!
Public Transportation is nearby. The nearest Elevated Train (EL) station is located at Fullerton Ave. and Sheffield Ave. The nearest bus stations are located along Clark St. or Lincoln Ave.
There is on-site parking for 2-3 cars (1 car in the garage and two in the driveway).

I'm a Chicago native and I enjoy traveling; I am Greek-American, so I go to Greece just about every summer to Karpathos, a small island where my grandmother was from. I try to tack on another European destination to each trip, to mix it up. I recently went to Brazil for NYE, which was amazing. It has also been a lot of fun to host guests, from all over the world, at our family property in Lincoln Park. Oh, and I play a lot of 16-inch softball in the summer, here (It's a Chicago thing).
