My motive for reviewing is to address some belittling comments less enlightened reviewers made about lower income neighbors in subsidized units. My comments are at end of this review. My infant son and I lived in a 2 bedroom corner unit when it first opened in 1986. My experience was Very positive. I *think* the doorman's name was Leroy who may still be there. I saw the name in a review and it struck a memory bell. If so he'd be near retirement. The doorman was so kind, friendly, and helpful I took a photo of him before I moved (which I still have). I LOVED the location- so much within walking distance. I walked to Treasure Island for groceries, Olive Park for my son to play in the grass, and ran to North Western Memorial Hospital's E.R. when my son had an accident. The L was easy access and my car was kept safely in the parking structure. The library (and my librarian friend) was in the nearby Wrigley Building and Giordano's was only minutes away. I left Chicago and Lake Shore Plaza to attend graduate school out of state. Some reviewers criticize the tenant selection process and compare the appearance of some neighbors to that of the homeless. Shame on you. Some of your neighbors live in HUD subsidized units, an arrangement which helped finance your building. Those tenants have incomes near or below the poverty line. Some of them might struggle with mental illness or be a war veteran who had been homeless. Without these tenants you think beneath yourself your apartment would not be available to you.
