Who wouldn't want to live a hop, skip, and a jump away from the house that Jordan built, or, as it's now being called, the Madhouse on Madison?
No surprises here. The area is full of Bulls fans, Blackhawks fans, and concertgoers for much of the year. Living this close to the largest arena in town, residents know what they're getting. The population is a healthy mix of students, young professionals, and families. Malcolm X College and UIC are nearby. Union Park is on the eastern border, where the indie Pitchfork Music Festival is held every summer and Touhy Park. The area is sparse on other dining options, but that's nothing a bus ride or quick drive to the West Loop can't fix. Apartments range from gut-rehabbed duplexes to vintage greystones to lofts in complexes.
