I've lived here for three years and I don't think you could blast me out with dynamite. This neighborhood is the perfect blend of urban and suburban. It's vibrant business district is contrasted with quiet streets lined with century's old trees. It's also extremely easy to get to from virtually every part of the city. It's listed as #93. I'd...

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 and we do walk Clark street a little.

Andersonville is off the beaten path of tourists, so you'll find locals among the shops, bars and restaurants. Spend an afternoon here, but it tends to wind down earlier than other neighborhoods....perfect for those who are not looking for crowds.

We went from a Vietnamese restaurant, to learning about Essanay Studios where Buster Keaton got... More
