I just got an apartment in Noble Square (Crystal and Noble to be exact) and I was just wondering what people thought of that area. Is it safe or sketchy, is it lively/active or dead, just a general vibe of it. Any post would be appreciated, just because I got this apartment b/c it was cheap and nice and I need to know if I made a good decision.

Any advice is better than no advice, so if somebody knows something about Noble Square (what it's like, especially the area around Noble and Division and north of there), that'd be very appreciated.

It is a nice area, I live close by. Go have a dinner and some sangria at Flo when you move in. They have excellent Sangria.

I think you'll like the area quite a bit.

If you have doubts about the area, it's probably not good

And why would that be? perhaps the OP is just new to the area, I know from a lifetime of living here that it is not easy to judge a neighborhood from a short visit, some places that look nice are not and some places that look run-down are a lot nicer than one would think.

Hi Libertine,

Have you moved into this apartment yet? I'm looking at the same place (I believe...it's a half apartment/loft thing right?) and wondered if you liked it. Do you have pictures?

I don't know if it's the same building but it is a two story apartment thing. I like the area alot, it's really quiet (with the exception of the freeway). It's also really close to Wicker Park and to the East Village and there are a ridiculous amount of good restaurants on Division. Ironically enough, it's only a ten/fifteen minute walk to the red line (yes the red line) stop at North and Clybourn, which is really nice. It's a damn good location for the amount of money I'm paying.

It is up and coming but still keep your eyes open. I lived by Milwaukee and Noble for a year a few years ago.

I can't believe it's such a short distance to the red line. That surprises me.

The area is fine...the great part about it is that it is quiet but you can walk to the night life.

Default Noble square?

I'm wondering about the Noble Square area - what's it like? There's a couple of really nice looking condos right near there (specifically on Ada between Chicago and Huron). It's so much closer to the el than most of the Ukrainian Village is, and there's a Starbucks right near there (which is kind of a requirement for me -even if that does make me a terrible yuppie!) but i haven't really spent any time there, so if anyone has and they could share their thoughts I'd really appreciate it.
