It's a Chicago neighborhood with a somewhat small town feel but many different types of shops,art galleries and eateries. Some spots in Andersonville I would suggest are the Candyality candy shop,Reza's for Persian cuisine and the Swedish American Museum.

Andersonville is a great walking neighborhood with great restaurants, shops, bars and even a Swedish American Murseum. Located in Edgewater, it's about a 20 minute Uber from the Loop and worth the trip if your time allows.

Andersonville has a large array of interesting shops, the Swedish Museum, and restaurants. You can do cheap or gourmet. Check out the Swedish Bakery and the Middle East Bakery and Market for nice surprises.

Not too much any more. There is not much to see here except it is now very gentrified. There is a good Persian restaurant two blocks north of Foster. Several Antique stores, a Starbucks and a good bakery. We go there for the Persian restaurant...More
