Get to Know Streeterville

Lying between the most popular beaches of Lake Michgan and the north end of Michigan Avenue, Streeterville is one of Chicago’s most cosmopolitan neighborhoods. Part of the Near North and the Gold Coast, it is just steps away from the Maginficent Mile and some of the world’s most fashionable shops, four-star restaurants, museums and theaters.

Streeterville has an interesting history as it was once Lake Michigan. It was named for one of Chicago’s eccentric residents, George Wellington “Cap” Streeter. In 1886, Streeter ran his schooner aground on a sandbar in Lake Michigan, near Michigan Avenue. Unable to dislodge the vessel, he stayed there and turned it into a home. Slowly, landfill turned the lake into land and Streeter (unsuccessfully) laid claim to the land.

What to do in Streeterville.

In addition to the sites and shops of the Magnificent Mile, residents are able to walk to Navy Pier for shopping, recreation, music, or just to watch the sailboats drift by. Its location also gives residents access to the world-famous Oak Street Beach and the John Hancock building.

Streeterville is considered by many to be an epicenter of culture with the amazing Museum of Contemporary Art at its heart. It also attracts many intellectuals and students with the downtown campus and medical center of Northwestern University and the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business.

In fact, Streeterville’s premier location allows many residents to live without a car, relying on cabs, walking and ample public transportation.
