"Great Location - Beware the bus exhaust"
Streets in Chicago go on forever, so I'm going to limit this review to the east side between Sheridan and Halsted. Technically in the Lakeview neighborhood, Diversey is right on the edge of Lincoln Park. It's got truckloads of restaurants of all cuisines and price points. The intersection with Clark boasts the Century Shopping Center with a movie theater. At the east end is Lincoln Park with places to play golf, tennis, or just sit on the lawns. Diversey is a main street, though. A bus route runs from the crack of dawn until late, and although you get used to the noise, you'll find your things (and maybe your lungs) will quickly acquire a coating of black grunge. If you have a car, you'll hate Diversey. Parking is expensive (metered, hourly garage, and rented monthly) and difficult to find. You can easily spend hours circling the blocks trying to find on-street parking. It's mostly just not worth it. If you can make it without one, and you mostly can, it'll save you money and heartache to make use of the ample public transportation in Chicago. All in all, Diversey is a great place for young professionals who want to be in the middle of the action, although I would recommend looking to some of the smaller side streets if you are looking to move to the area.
