Sorry to say which is unusual for me there really isnt anything too significant to write. Neither good bad and or indifferent.

Not so much ethnic (tho it still has a Swedish background hum), more LGBTQ. Home to the most famous feminist bookstore in the country and inspiration for Portlandia. Virtually no chain stores. Great bars, shopping, produce, antiques, ice cream. Get there best by city bus.

I love this neighborhood. They have the best vintage and resale shops. My fav being the Woolly Mammoth. Great food and bars are all over the place here. Parking is not too bad, lots of street parking.

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.

Great neighborhood on the North side of Chicago! Plenty to do for shopping, dining and experiences. Went to the Farmers Market and then I just relieved a 30 minute pressurized leg massage from Andersonville Cryotherapy and Recovery Center. Later is First Fridays were different storefronts...More

From the personable shops like the "Mercantile M", the candy store, and many other to the friendly people you meet on the streets, so worth visiting.

Hi! Yes shops and restaurants will be open. I believe that day is St Morten's Goose Day so expect some festivities.
