At first glance on a map, River West appears to have more non-apartment space than apartment space. That's true. But we don't live on maps. And you won't need one to navigate the River West neighborhood.
First, a cool perk. The majority of River West apartments are converted warehouses, so loft-style-living lovers can rejoice. Living in River West also means proximity to Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, and downtown via the blue line. Warehouses and markets have also been transformed into trendy dining establishments and large art studios. Nightlife is a dialed-down version of its closest neighbors. Milwaukee Avenue has a few bars here and there. Beyond that, River West is a convenient place for getting to the more populated areas of West Town.
The Grand blue line stop is the epicenter of River West, and 90/94 is in the backyard.
