Where exactly is River West located? It’s a neighborhood that is located just west of River North, North of the West Loop, east of Wicker Park and the Ukrainian Village. The dividing lines for the neighborhood is Division Street to the north, I-90 to the west, Ohio Street to the south and the Chicago River to the east.
This neighborhood at one time was more of an industrial area of the city which now many of those warehouses have since been converted into unique loft and condo buildings. There are also many townhomes, low rise condo buildings along with a few mid-rise buildings that have been springing up in River West. This public transportation friendly neighborhood is ideal for downtown workers and for those who work in the West Loop due to the walk-ability to the West Loop. The hipster highway, also known as Milwaukee Avenue, runs through the neighborhood which many bike commuters use every day to get to their office. The Chicago blue line, Milwaukee Bus and the Chicago Avenue Bus are all located in River West which makes getting around town easy.
