What is the name of the neighborhood or neighborhoods around the area south of Chicago, but north of Lake, west of Ashland and east of Western? What is this area of town like? I haven't heard anyone talking about it, but I'm assuming it's gotta be an area soon to catch up with it's trendy neighbors (River West, UK Village, and West Loop), since it has (what seems like) an ideal location.

That is often generically called West-Town and the parts west of Damen are Ukrainian Village (which extends south to I believe Grand). I've looked at apartments in that area before, looks fine to me. Some of the areas closer to Lake and Damen are rather sketchy though. You probably want to stay north of Fulton and East of Damen unless you are firmly within Ukrainian Village west of Damen between Chicago and Grand. For the most part it is an area that is coming along with the tearing down of some projects, but that area immediately around United Center is probably going to remain a bit sketchy for awhile longer (however east of Ashland around united center is firmly the west-loop and full of lofts and all that goes with upscale loft housing).
