I live in Lincoln Park. It's a family community and I have had no problem with crime for the year that I've lived here. It is also very quiet at night, much better than the downtown area. The only problem that I've had is some jerk who kept shooting off fireworks at 1 in the morning for THREE nights in a row. But hell, I got that in the suburbs as well. ... more

The best way to find out the safest route to and from a school is to call the school directly for their route recommendation and transportation options. Good luck!

North & Sedgewick is the closest.

Armitage & Sheffield is much further west.

Plenty of buses are available from 1850 N Clark

The Near North Side is mostly high-rise living. Whereas Lincoln Park is much more of a mix, but definitely lower density. Because the Near North Side is so close to downtown you have much more single occupancy options, but it is more expensive. Lincoln Park is still pretty expensive, but there are a lot of different options for housing. LP also has slightly easier parking to the west. Both are equally great neighborhoods, so it just depends on your lifestyle.

A good rule of thumb for most of Chicago is that higher density living is closer to the lake and it gets less dense as you move further west.

Sarah Ziehr answered:
This completely depends on your lifestyle. Do you like neighborhoods with a residential feel? Then Lincoln Park. Do you like high rises and more hustle and bustle? Then Gold Coast.

I think you would be happy in either location, they are very close to one another, both have shopping, bars, restaurants and are near the beach. Will you be commuting to the Loop every day? Gold Coast will get you to where you need to be faster each morning, so that is something to consider. And its a less expensive taxi ride on days you are running late.

I would recommend asking around to your friends, colleagues, etc., and get their two cents. Also, when you get to town spend some time in each of the areas you are looking in to get a real feel for the area.

Let me know if I can set up a customized search on the MLS in order to find what you are looking for, I'd love to help!

Email me directly -

Jed Lane answered:
You can either have your client pay you or negotiate with the other side for compensation. Probably easiest to have an agreement with your client to pay you. All the money comes from them anyway and then you can go out and get them the best deal without worring about the other side. ... more

The City does not automatically inspect anything, but they usually will if you call and request an inspection, but they won't put anything in writing. You might also want to consider hiring an independent inspector. -Mike Savage ... more
