Since we began publishing our neighborhood apartment guides in mid-January of this year, we’ve been tracking the number of times each has been visited, and you can see the results in the above graph. Click on the graph for a larger view.

The five neighborhoods drawing the most visits from prospective renters are, in order, River North, Lincoln Park, West Loop, Lakeview and the Loop / New East Side.

Given the amount of new apartment development in the neighborhood, it’s no surprise that River North is drawing substantially more visits than runner-up Lincoln Park. The only surprise among the top five is Loop / New East Side, which has become a sought-after residential neighborhood only within the past few years.

If you consult the list in our right column of our ten most popular features during the past two weeks, you’ll note that the West Loop has drawn more visits during that time period than Lincoln Park.
