Head in any direction and you may be overwhelmed by the number and variety of local restaurants.
Greektown, just south on Halsted, is largely a tourist draw, but some of the restaurants are definitely worth a visit.

Mary Bartelme Park, a short walk southwest, is a neighborhood favorite for kids and dogs. The park comes up short on active recreational space.

A CTA bus route on Madison St, just outside the building, travels east into the Loop and west to the United Center. The Halsted St bus connects to the UIC campus and to the Blue Line for transit to O’Hare Airport.
