West Loop - Chicago neighborhood
Now let's take a look at the popular West Loop neighborhood.
Most of this neighborhood information was contributed by
Wikipedia. The Wikipedia article may be viewed in its
entirety by clicking here.
Often called just "the West Loop," West Loop Gate makes
up the north central area of the Near West Side, west
of Chicago's Loop. It is bordered by the Kennedy
Expressway to the east, Grand Avenue on the north,
the Eisenhower Expressway to the south, and Ashland to
the west. The neighborhood also extends to the Chicago
River south of Madison Street.
A former manufacturing corridor turned art-edgy neigh-
borhood, the area is made up primarily of warehouses that
are still in use or have been converted to loft condominiums,
"loftominiums," restaurants, night clubs, a growing number
of art galleries and some retail. It's also the home of Harpo
Studios, owned by well known talk show host Oprah
Winfrey, and the production site of her syndicated show.
Chicago Union Station, the city's only remaining intercity rail
terminal, is a well known West Loop landmark.
The Greektown section of Chicago is located roughly between
Van Buren and Madison Streets, along Halsted Street, within
the Near West Side community area of Chicago. It was
popularized in the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," which
was actually filmed mostly in Toronto. The neighborhood is
known for its plethora of excellent Greek restaurants,
including the famous Parthenon, and its 24 hour food spots.
