The Aster House Apartments has been a legitimate business since 1982 (30+ years!), and we've had tenants stay as long as 11 years, so you may be assured of a secure and comfortable stay.
NEIGHBORHOOD: Aster House is centrally located on a quiet residential street one block from DePaul in Lincoln Park, Chicago's most upscale (and safe!) downtown neighborhood.
~WITHIN 1/2 - 2 BLOCKS are many restaurants, cafes, pizzerias, sports bars, bakeries, fine shops, resale shops, kids stores, theatres, art galleries, museums, music venues, the post office, the library, dry cleaners, a park with free tennis courts and playground, local ice cream shops, three Starbucks, day spas, hair and nail salons, DePaul University, a late-night pharmacy, and for any jet-lag or late nights there's a 24-hour grocery and 24-hour restaurant.
~ It's 4 - 8 blocks to an 11-theatre movie theatre, two comedy clubs, the city park, two farmers' markets from May 1 - Oct 31, the year-round free city zoo and botanical gardens, the lake/Fullerton beach and necessities such as Home Depot, Best Buy, Target, Whole Foods, Barnes & Noble, etc.
TRANSPORTATION: We're 1/2 to 1 block from the Fullerton subway/el station (Red, Brown and Purple lines), frequent taxicabs and several buses to reach all the rest of the city's attractions. For instance, Wrigley Field is just 10 blocks up the street -- a fun walk or quick subway ride almost door to door. The Mag Mile, Navy Pier or The Loop are about a 4- 6 minute subway/el ride.
