   What's cool in River North?   

River North has all of the conveniences and excitement of living downtown with a distinct neighborhood feel. The architecture is stunning and I love catching glimpses of the river on my walk to work. We live around the corner from so many exciting restaurants and bars that we never have to go to the same place twice–even though we definitely have neighborhood favorites that we regularly frequent.
