Mag Mile Chicago

Michigan Ave, Chicago 2016

The lights are aglow on Chicago's 'Magnificent Mile' (aka Michigan Avenue). Just an quick Uber/Lyft/CTA ride from Portage Park, Andersonville, Uptown, Wrigleyville, DePaul, Lincoln Square, Roscoe Village, Ukrainian Village, Bucktown; and mere steps from the River North and Printers Row/Loop neighborhoods of Chicago, this world famous shopping district always has a great holiday vibe going on. Yeah, I know...its 'Cyber Monday yadda yadda, but there's nothing like spending a little face time with the beautiful people at Chanel, Gucci, Hermes...and yes, UNIQLO (Pictured above. If you haven't heard of it then Google it. Best prices on earth for the good stuff).

Top 10 Chicago Real Estate Deals | River North

My past SOLD listing @451 W Huron

Click the highlighted link to view my Top 10 Chicago Real Estate Deals in the River North neighborhood of Chicago.  Priced between 1- 1.6 Million $$ USD. (2016 Winter)

Geographically, the
 River North neighborhood is tucked in between Superior Street to the north, the winding Chicago River to the west and south, and that great State Street to the east. It is steps away from the Magnificent Mile shopping district of Michigan Avenue and a mere five buck and change cab ride to almost anywhere else in the downtown vicinity. For public transport, the Chicago Brown Line ‘L’ rumbles gently overhead with platform stops at both Chicago Avenue and the Merchandise Mart. CTA buses run ‘round the clock in every other direction. Taxi, Uber and Zip Car options are endless.

The Buena Park Neighborhood of Chicago

Mural art by Jeffrey Littleton

N Marine Drive & W  Buena Ave

Buena Park, tucked neatly between the Wrigleyville and Uptown neighborhoods of Chicago, is just a few tranquil steps away from Montrose Harbor, the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course, and my favorite new dog-walking destination, Peace Garden (pictured above). Notice Park Place Tower (my GenoPetro.House office location) standing in the far right background. Loving the North Side of Chicago before the winter chill sets in.

Wrigleyville Home Stand

Sheffield & Waveland 

The Cubs are back in the Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago this weekend to take a swing (haha) at baseball immortality. My condo is a few blocks away from the field and I'm looking forward to being 'present in the moment,' if only from afar (note the 'Bleachers' center field entrance above). Ticket prices are ridiculous so the game will most likely be broadcasted via old school radio waves for me. That's cool. Really cool.

How about this landmine at the corner of Irving Park Rd and Clarendon in the Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago? Been there for a couple months now. A pot/man-hole disaster just waiting to happen. Cyclists, non-SUV drivers, and jaywalkers beware.
