"Residential Bliss in the Heart of the Gold Coast"
Bellevue Place is a quiet residential street that runs for just two blocks (if that) between Rush Street and Lake Shore Drive. There are a few high- and mid-rise buildings, but most of the houses are old brownstone mansions for wealthy Chicagoans. The best part about the street is its proximity to Lake Michigan and Oak Street Beach, but residents also benefit from the nearby shopping, access to public transit (bus and subway lines), restaurants and nightlife. A true Chicago institution stands at the corner of Bellevue and State - the Original Pancake House. Rain or shine, summer or winter, lines form and wind their way out the door. If I lived on Bellevue, I'd be at the Pancake House every morning for breakfast! Bellevue has great access to Lake Shore Drive and is only about 1.5 miles from an entrance to the highway.
