The Loop Neighborhood Guide

Chicago's Loop Neighborhood is home to downtown Chicago's financial and theater districts. Originally called the Loop because of the El tracks that circle the area. Boundaries are the Chicago River on the north and west, Michigan Avenue (and sometimes Lake Michigan) on the east, and approximately Van Buren on the south.
