Best Things About the Neighborhood
Hyde Park is an up-and-coming neighborhood in the midst of a cultural Renaissance. New restaurants, hotels, retail are popping up all the time. Within two blocks are: Target, Whole Foods, Marshalls, Michaels, Starbucks, a produce store, amazing restaurants, great neighborhood parks. Within 5 blocks is Lake Michigan. Morning jogs on the lake, then catch the #6 bus directly downtown right outside the building, or the Metra train just minutes away. Fifteen minute walk to University of Chicago, SMART Museum, Oriental Institute, Museum of Science and Industry, DuSable Museum. Can't beat this.
Why it's Worthy of Calling Home
Hyde Park has the neighborhood feel that you want in your community, where everyone walks the streets and talks to each other, yet it's a 10-minute bus ride to the heart of downtown and an even faster train ride. You are literally minutes from world-class museums and a top-tier university, plus an amazing bike or running trail along the lake. Old buildings with character, big, leafy trees. Climb up to the rooftop and watch the fireworks come in, or sit on the rocks at the lake and catch the sunset. This is how it should feel to live in the city: cosmopolitan, yet cozy.
