Welcome To Streeterville
Flanked on one side by the crowded sidewalks of Michigan Avenue and the wide open waters of Lake Michigan on the other, Streeterville is home some of the biggest attractions and most visited sites in Chicago. Shop the Magnificent Mile, ride the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier, get culture at the Museum of Contemporary Art and enjoy the vistas from the 94th-floor Observatory at the John Hancock Center, all within a few blocks from your front door. Residents like the architectural grandeur of this small, near north side Chicago neighborhood which also includes iconoclastic landmarks like the ornate Tribune Tower and the Water Tower Place. For living space, towering condominium high-rises are the norm, offering homeowners a high-end lifestyle with a view. Giving up the height but keeping the luxury, three- and four-story brown- and graystones make up the rest of Streeterville real estate. Needless to say, the neighborhood has the best shopping in Chicago with its Mag Mile retailers and flagship department stores. The Streeterville cuisine is just as sought-after, boasting reservation-required restaurants and more casual, family-friendly joints.

Then and Now
Unlike many of the city's original settlers, Streeterville's first residents did not live in a typical late 19th century Chicago home. Not because the style or material was out of the ordinary -- but because the location was ...
As legend has it, back in 1886 Captain George Wellington "Cap" Streeter and his second wife Maria Mullholland found themselves living just off the Chicago shoreline in a boat named Reutan. The captain, who had gone through life jumping from job to job, planned to try his hand at gun running, and with his wife in tow, Cap tested his rig on the open waters of Lake Michigan. Unfortunately, the Reutan ran aground on a sandbar just 450 feet from Michigan Avenue. As opposed to digging the boat out, the couple decided to settle down right where they were and fashioned a home out of the stranded sea vessel.
With the rest of "mainland" Chicago in the middle of rebuilding after the Great Fire of 1871, contractors were looking for a convenient dumpsite to dispose of rubble and building ruins. Entrepreneurial guy that he was, Cap offered to sell plots of his sandbar to the developers. Before long, the shallow depths between the original shoreline and Streeter's home were completely filled in, creating 186 acres of previously nonexistent land. Since official government surveys of the city only included the land up to the old water's edge, Cap pronounced himself the governor of this newly formed territory and dubbed it the "District of Lake Michigan." Seizing every opportunity, Cap began to sell off sections of the landfill -- where a full-blown shantytown was quickly established under his jurisdiction.
Despite the authority Cap believed he had over the District of Lake Michigan, neighboring Chicago citizens thought otherwise. With the backing of wealthy mansion-building Gold Coasters, city officials started an initiative to dethrone Streeter. Not surprisingly, he managed to outwit the opposition for quite a while. Physical attempts by the police to arrest Cap were even thwarted by his spouse's tricky antics: One account claims she dumped scalding water over a group of officers to prevent them from taking her husband in. Even when they did manage to capture him, time and time again, Cap would be promptly acquitted and released.
Years of skirmishes were followed by more battles with city officials -- this time in court -- for the rights to the District of Lake Michigan. The conflict came to an abrupt end in 1921 when Streeter died from a case of pneumonia. Instead of allowing his third wife to inherit the land as it stated in his Streeter's will, the city played their final card -- on a touchy technicality -- and won it back. It seems Streeter's first wife had left him to travel with a vaudeville show. Without an official divorce, his subsequent marriages were illegitimate, deeming the will unlawful and unbinding. And so, after decades of disputes, the city had finally gotten a hold of Streeter's prime waterfront property.
Once in the hands of the city, this lakeshore land become one of the fastest developing neighborhoods in Chicago history -- with the name Streeterville, a nod to Cap's legacy -- and plans to extend Lake Shore Drive further south along Streeter's former homestead. The drive connected the affluent Gold Coast neighborhood with the busy business district in the Loop. Commercial buildings, pricey residential housing, and tourist attractions went up like wildfire, and Streeterville was transformed into the valuable property it is today, practically the polar opposite of Streeter's landfill shantytown that once occupied the land.

Besides the Sears tower, the John Hancock Center (875 N Michigan Ave) is the Chicago skyline's most identifiable building. The distinctive sleek, black crisscross beams, and twin white roof antennae are unmistakable as one of the city's great architectural treasures. Designed by structural engineer Fazlur Khan, the Hancock Center's special X-brace construction supports the entire building from its outer walls -- leaving the interior space open and free from the typical internal supports. A mini-community of its own, the 100-story skyscraper houses office space, retail shops, restaurants, a heated parking garage and 49 floors of residential condos. The Hancock Center is visited everyday by people like us who don't work, eat, park or live there ... we just go for the scenery. Day or night, the 94th-floor observation deck offers an incredible bird's-eye view of the city and beyond -- which is quite far in this flat Midwest landscape. Make sure to watch the weather report before you go, though, because as soon as the clouds roll in, you won't be seeing much of anything outside those windows.
Streeterville is also home to another iconic Chicago building: the Tribune Tower (435 N Michigan Ave). Architects Raymond M. Hood and John Mead Howells entered a contest held in 1922 by the Chicago Tribune newspaper. The competition was to decide who would build their new headquarters and the "most beautiful office building in the world." Even though their Gothic style was a far cry from Chicago's more modern architectural trend at time, the Tribune awarded the job to the classic throwback. Modeled after the Rouen Cathedral in France, the building features ornate flying buttresses that support the upper section of the tower where stone-carved gargoyles perch -- however, it's the rocks at the bottom of the building that earn the most notice. Fragments from some of the world's most famous landmarks such as the Great Wall of China, the Alamo and the Coliseum were collected and incorporated into the base of the structure (even pieces of the World Trade Center were added after 9/11). Construction on the tower was completed in 1925, and the Tribune moved into its new home where it remains to this day.
We never know what to expect on a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art (220 E Chicago Ave, 312-280-2660), except that we're guaranteed some intriguing, thought-provoking artistic interpretations. Situated in the middle of Streeterville neighbrhood, the five-level museum and terraced gardens provide an inspirational setting for students, professionals and art admirers alike. A spiraling staircase leads up to the various galleries where some installations span the length of an entire room. Just as the artists use every type of medium you can imagine, their artwork covers a world of topics and issues as well. In addition to its contemporary art exhibitions, the 300-seat MCA Theater is a popular venue for modern film, music and dance performances, and can be rented out for private events.

When in this Chicago neighborhood, a quick glance around (and up) will reveal the main housing option here: high-rise condominium and apartment buildings and penthouse suites. From the shoreline back to Michigan Avenue, blocks of towering skyscrapers and mid-rise buildings provide the small Streeterville population with all the living space and services they need.
In this downtown setting, space is limited and extremely valuable ... so two or three million dollars will get you a beautiful three-bedroom condo on the water with garage parking and breathtaking views of the city. For something a little less pricey, one-bedroom units are generally available for anywhere between $250,000 and $600,000. A good proportion of the properties are cited as being luxury-level, meaning they come with a range of upscale amenities from marble countertops and flooring to upgraded kitchen and bath fixtures. As with most deluxe accommodations, many of theses doorman-guarded condominium buildings offer residents the use of an in-house exercise facility, extra basement storage and rooftop garden patio, many with pools and spacious sundecks.
First formed in 1975, the Streeterville Organization of Active Residents (SOAR) is a group of volunteers who stand behind their pledge of "Working to Keep Streeterville a Neighborhood." Even in its bustling city setting, SOAR strives to maintain a sense of community and kinship among Streeterville residents. Responsible development, increased green spaces and improved public transportation are among the organization's future goals for this small lakeside Chicago neighborhood.
What's on the Menu?
Streeterville restaurants are among some of the most memorable in the city. After all, how could anyone forget a meal at 1,000 feet in the air? Up on the 95th floor of the Hancock Center, the Signature Room (875 N Michigan Ave, 312-787-9596) is an upscale dining experience where the only thing better than the cuisine is the view. Surrounded by unobstructed panoramas of the city, diners are treated to exquisitely prepared contemporary American specialties and a wide selection of top domestic and imported wines. The Signature Room also serves an amazing spread for Sunday brunch with Belgian waffles, made-to-order omelets, sushi bar, fresh caviar and a mouthwatering desert table. A little on the expensive side, but hey -- we figure the location is priceless.
Jutting out into Lake Michigan from the neighborhood's eastern edge, Navy Pier supports a small dining district to accommodate the large volume of daily visitors. Since much of the traffic through the Pier is families, the restaurants have fun themes and kid menus. Bubba Gump Shrimp (remember the movie Forest Gump?) serves up shrimp prepared any way you want and offers the kiddies their choice of favorites like chicken fingers, mac n' cheese and, of course, popcorn shrimp. Serving traditional American food and all kinds of beer, Charlie's Ale House (700 E Grand Ave #118, 312-595-1440) is our favorite spot in the summer because they've got a great outdoor patio for stellar people-watching along the Pier. For something a bit fancier, Riva's (700 E Grand Ave #127, 312-644-7482) premium seafood menu offers everything from whole Maine lobster right from the tank to sashimi style Hawaiian tuna or "Colossal" shrimp cocktail. Sitting there on the Pier, dining on fresh ocean cuisine, it almost feels like we're really on the coast.
Streeterville really covers all the bases when it comes to food, with eateries of every type, all within blocks of each other -- French, American, Pan-Asian, pizza, sushi, pub burgers -- you name it. While many are tucked in among the shops along the Magnificent Mile, or found at typical tourist destinations like Navy Pier, the intersection of Ohio and Ontario streets is a crossroads for international fare like Emilio's Tapas Sol y Nieve (215 E Ohio St, 312-467-7177), a charming Spanish tapas cafe decorated with mosaic tile design. On warm days, the huge outdoor seating area fills up with families and friends sharing a selection of the hot and cold small plates. Les Nomades (222 E Ontario St, 312-649-9010) offers diners contemporary French cuisine and a diverse wine list. Start off your multi-course meal with a few hors d'oeurves and end the feast with a classic souffles -- it's guaranteed to make your taste buds applaud -- can they do that? While a jacket is required for the gents, it's worth dressing up to have a meal sitting next to the crackling fireplace in this fancy, award-winning Streeterville restaurant.
Craving something like pasta and meatballs? You've got a few Italian spots to choose from here, and Volare (201 E Grand Ave, 312-410-9900) is one of our favorites, boasting authentic Italian cooking, Old World elegance and pretty reasonable prices. This place gets so packed on the weekends that even with a reservation, we often have to wait. Bice Ristorante (158 E Ontario St, 312-664-1474) serves incredible northern Italian dishes with class and sophistication. Bice's menu is wide-ranging, with Tuscan-inspired pasta, fish and meat entrees. Top off a romantic candlelit dinner with a tiramisu and a couple of espressos.

Best Shopping Stops
Streeterville is bordered on the west by Chicago's fabulous Magnificent Mile, which just so happens to be the city's most popular shopping district. Visited by millions every year, Michigan Avenue is a flurry of activity with people from all walks of life in search of the next addition to their wardrobe or home decor.
The highlight of the Magnificent Mile and Chicago's best-known mall (not to mention the country's very first vertical mall) is Water Tower Place (835 N Michigan Ave, 312-440-3166), a nine-story shopper's utopia. Paralleling the stairs and escalators leading up from the main entrance, an enormous terraced waterfall with jumping spurts of water thrills the crowds as they ascend to the inviting realm of retail shops. Once inside, a vast atrium extends up through every level of the mall revealing just how big this place really is. While apparel and accessories are the main attraction here, Water Tower Place has every specialty from bath and beauty to technology and toys. After a long day of toting shopping bags and climbing escalators, we take a load off and get a pick-me-up at Foodlife, the mall's international gourmet food court. Or stop at The Sharper Image (312-335-1600) on the second floor to "try out" their electric massage chairs and other new-fangled electronic gadgets that are good at getting rid of stiff shoulders and sore feet -- chronic symptoms that plague true shop-aholics.
If you didn't find what you were looking for at any of the world-famous malls along the Mag Mile, have no fear -- there are countless retail chains and independent boutiques up and down Michigan Avenue. Searching for the perfect little black dress or tailored three-piece suit? Try the classic styles of Neiman Marcus (737 N Michigan Ave, 312-642-5900). For items on the other end of the fashion spectrum such as basketball shoes and sweat bands, Niketown (669 N Michigan Ave, 312-642-6363) is Chicago's supreme athletic apparel superstore where unique displays and ultramodern structural features draw as many fascinated sightseers as serious sneaker-buyers. Whether you're a fitness fanatic or haven't been to the gym in years, this place will inspire your sporty side.
Other big names in fashion have big stores along this ultra-popular shopping strip. The clothes, accessories, handbags and shoes at Burberry (633 N Michigan Ave, 312-787-2500), Guess? (605 N Michigan Ave, 312-440-9665), Louis Vuitton (919 N Michigan Ave, 312-944-2010) and Salvatore Ferragamo (645 N Michigan Ave, 312-397-0464) will make any bona fide shopping aficionado drool.
Marked solely by a giant symbol of its well-recognized logo on the front of building, the Apple Store (679 N Michigan Ave, 312-981-4104) is a busy electronic floorshow of Apple's latest and greatest models and gadgets. A magnet for techies and music lovers, the Apple Store allows you to test out the merchandise firsthand (we love that). While computer enthusiasts play with the newest high-powered laptop, music fans scroll through the iPods loaded with an eclectic mix of songs and music videos. The second level hosts tutorials where you'll learn the ins and outs of Apple products. Got some pesky glitches on your newest toy? The gurus at the Genius Bar are on staff to help.
When you have the kids in tow, it's almost impossible to pass by the Disney Store (717 N Michigan Ave, 312-654-9208) without the desperate pleas of a "toy-deprived" child. But come on, who wouldn't want to visit an offshoot of the "Happiest Place on Earth"? Once inside, you're transported to the fantasy land of a child's imagination. Every Disney character is represented in the form of cuddly stuffed animals, pose-able action figures, kid-size costumes, collectable editions and an assortment of whimsical knick-knacks and souvenirs. On the back wall, a large movie screen plays classic animated Disney pictures while delighted squeals of pure joy rise from swarms of tiny shoppers trying on Cinderella slippers and playing with Mickey dolls. OK, we admit it: We've let out a squeal or two ourselves.

Night on the Town
Streeterville certainly has enough going on to merit status as one of Chicago's entertainment hot spots. Slightly removed from the rest of the city, Navy Pier (700 E Grand Ave) is a fun-filled destination that draws tons of tourists and locals all year round. Something about setting foot on that pier, extending out into Lake Michigan gives the sense of almost being on vacation -- if just for a few hours. And nothing feels more like escaping the regular grind than setting sail on a moonlight cruise from the docks of Navy Pier. Breathe in the fresh night air as the Spirit of Chicago (312-836-7899) navigates through the open water under a starry sky. The twinkling skyline creates a one-of-a-kind backdrop for partying the night away. Dance, drink, eat and be merry until the wee hours of the morning when the Spirit of Chicago returns you to solid ground -- and reality.
Theater buffs should be impressed by Streeterville's selection of stage shows. Starting back on Navy Pier again, there are two stages: the Chicago Shakespeare Theater (312-595-5600) featuring year-round main-stage performances of works by the Bard and productions by other playwrights in the theater's smaller upstairs space. Also located out on the pier during summertime, the Skyline Stage (312-595-7437) hosts the mind-blowing talents of Cirque du Soleil-style acrobats and contortionists -- the type of stuff that warrants a "kids, don't try this at home" disclaimer.
Sometimes we want to watch movies on the big screen -- and when we say "big screen" we mean BIG SCREEN. At six stories high and over 80 feet wide, Navy Pier's IMAX Theater (312-595-5629) takes the cake as the largest movie screen in Streeterville, if not the entire city of Chicago. The best is to catch one of the 3-D films. The 1950s-style cinema experience is still a trip and we admit -- we still get fooled by those untouchable images directly in front of our eyes ... it just looks so real! Streeterville has a couple regular-size movie theaters, too. The AMC River East 21 (322 E Illinois St, 847-765-7262) is a multi-level complex showing all the newest Hollywood blockbusters. On plenty of occasions, we've had trouble getting tickets on Friday and Saturday nights before they sold out, so if you're serious about seeing a film, purchase the tix well in advance.
[Back To Top]
For a night out, we actually go up -- to the Signature Lounge (875 N Michigan Ave, 312-787-7230) on the 96th floor of the John Hancock Center. The cocktails are admittedly overpriced, but something about gazing out at the sparkling city lights below and the twinkling stars above justifies a martini for 13 bucks. Open from 11 in the morning, it's obvious people come up here not for drinks so much as the breath-taking view. If you want to stretch your drinking dough a little further, Streeterville has great neighborhood pubs that are more down-to-earth (both in price and location). Situated in the Radisson Hotel, the Elephant & Castle (160 E Huron St, 312-440-1180) is reminiscent of a cozy British pub. Getting a pint here won't set you back too much. They have 20 beers on tap and a bunch of imports to choose from. Timothy O'Toole's Pub (622 N Fairbanks Ct, 312-642-5282) is a lively sports bar with four pool tables and more TVs than we can count. While it may be customary to get a Guinness at an Irish pub, it seems a shame to ignore the more than 50 drafts on tap and in bottles available here ... maybe we'll have the Guinness to start, and then try something new.
Three of our favorite consumables come together at Eno (505 N Michigan Ave, 312-321-8738), located in the Intercontinental Hotel lobby -- and they're the only three things on the menu: wine, cheese and chocolate. Who needs anything else? Featuring a multitude of each, Eno is a swanky wine bar with an experienced wait staff to assist you in selecting the perfect trio for your taste. The mocha and burgundy interior and low cellar-style ceilings set the mood for a blissful experience sampling the mix of flavors meant to send your senses soaring. CityFront 455 (455 N Cityfront Plaza, 312-494-1452) is an intimate setting to have a quiet drink after work or on a weekend night. A block off busy Michigan Avenue, this bar is found in the southeast section of the NBC Tower. Bartenders here mix up top-shelf liquors to make tasty cocktails and specialty martinis. At the opposite end of the strip, in the landmark Drake Hotel, guests and visitors lounge with drinks in old-fashioned elegance at Palm Court (140 E Walton, 312-932-4615). A limestone fountain is the focal point of the room, which offers a scrumptious English-style afternoon tea during the day ... but after 5 pm the theme switches over to cocktails and wine. A live pianist plays enchanting melodies, providing the perfect soundtrack to the Palm's refined ambiance.

You've heard us mention it here a bunch of times, and that's because it's a big deal. Chicago's amusement park on the water, Navy Pier juts out into Lake Michigan from Streeterville's southeast side. Originally used for both recreational and shipping purposes in the early 1900s, Navy Pier has gone through several stages before being transformed into Chicago's ultimate playground for all ages. In addition to the 150-foot-tall Ferris wheel -- visible from anywhere along the Chicago shoreline -- the Pier offers visitors rides on the musical carousel and old-fashioned wave swinger.
You can also spend the day at the Pier playing a round of miniature golf, visiting the Chicago Children's Museum (312-464-7709), strolling through the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows (312-595-5024) or perusing the shops for souvenirs. Plus, between Memorial Day and Labor Day, fireworks displays take place every Wednesday and Saturday nights. So even if we're not out there already, we head down to the lakeshore to ooh and ahh over the colorful spectacle.
Besides sit-down restaurants, Navy Pier has an indoor food court, seasonal outdoor food stands and dock vendors for snacks, treats and plenty of kid-friendly cuisine. For a truly impressive dining experience, try one of the brunch, lunch or dinner cruises that depart from Navy Pier. Whether you prefer a romantic, candlelit evening meal aboard the Odyssey III (a sleek, three-level yacht) or a fun day of partying out on the water in the ever-popular Spirit of Chicago, you'll find a cruise that floats your boat. If you've already eaten we recommend taking one of the sightseeing boat tours for an unforgettable adventure along Chicago's breathtaking shoreline. Learn about the city's history and architecture while getting a great tan -- what could be better?
The entrance to Navy Pier is off Streeterville's Ohio Street Beach. Small but well-known, the beach attracts tourists on their way to Navy Pier and local residents enjoying the outdoors. A convenient bike and jogging path runs through the area connecting it to Chicago's other lakeside parks and beaches.

Mark Your Calendar
Besides Navy Pier's biweekly fireworks, the Museum of Contemporary Art is the spot for most of Streeterville's notable neighborhood events. Starting in June, a European-style farmer's market is set up on the grounds of the museum every Tuesday from 10 am to 6 pm. Downtown residents stock up on fresh fruits and veggies and handmade spices, while passing pedestrians are stopped in their tracks by the wonderful selection of vibrant flowers. The weekly market goes through October, so all summer long we skip the produce aisle at the grocery store and make a trip to the museum instead.
The first week in May brings Hip Hop artists from around the country to Chicago for the Hip-Hop Theatre Festival -- also held in the museum. Featuring four nights of performances preceded by two days of up-close and personal time with the talent -- HHTF is an all-out celebration of modern-day musical stylings.
And if you're looking for details about those fireworks we mentioned, here you go: From Memorial Day through Labor Day, catch the Navy Pier fireworks on Wednesday nights at 9:30 pm or Saturdays at 10:15 pm. You'd think with fireworks going off twice a week, it'd seem like the Fourth of July all the time. Only there's no question when the real day rolls around because the pyrotechnics team at Navy Pier plans an extra special tribute to celebrate the ultimate day of patriotism that attracts thousands to the lakefront (get there early if you want to stake out a good spot).

This is one neighborhood where hailing a taxi is as common as leaves on trees. Just step onto the sidewalk and take your pick of cabs that seem to circle the area in search of their next fare. And we think these cabbies keep up on the local happenings because on fireworks nights, when hordes of people come to Streeterville for the amazing light display, there is a lineup of taxis waiting for the mass exodus of tourists and other Chicagoans who want to get back to their hotels and homes the second the fireworks end.
The 151 bus is probably the easiest, least expensive way to get around Streeterville and to destinations outside the neighborhood boundaries. The route along Lake Shore Drive is used by tourists, Chicago neighborhood residents and intra-city commuters. Although the CTA trains don't run directly through Streeterville, the Red Line has stops at Chicago and Grand along State Street, just a few blocks west of Michigan Avenue.
If you have a car, Lake Shore Drive is accessible from the neighborhood and provides quick transport to the north or south. And because of its destination reputation, this Chicago neighborhood has ample public parking -- however, the rates are often pretty pricey.

School's in Session
Despite its small size, Streeterville is home to some of Chicago's most prestigious educational institutions such as Northwestern University's downtown campus (211 E Superior St, 312-503-8649). Housing the medical and law schools, the 25-acre campus occupies the blocks between Lake Shore Drive and St. Clair Street, Chicago Avenue and Huron Street. Between the Feinberg School of Medicine and the School of Law, approximately 2,200 full-time students attend classes at Northwestern's southern campus.
In addition to Northwestern, the neighborhood has a small selection of other education facilities where both Streeterville residents and other Chicago area kids (and adults) can enroll. For a compete list and for more info on schools in the area checkout Chicago Public Schools or Great Schools.
