For higher-end shopping, the Knickerbocker, no contest. For bargains, the State Street area is better, so choose the Silversmith. This is also the better choice for museum-going.

Knickerbocker in Magnificent Mile area. The Silversmith is in the Loop and up against the elevated train tracks. It's easy to get to the Loop if you want to but there are plenty of nicely priced stores on the Mag Mile and they're all competing for your $.

If you're sensitive to noise, you'll want the Knickerbocker. SS is referring to the fact that the CTA elevated train tracks are directly in front of the Silversmith and the immediate area is very noisy.

Sounds like a major failure by autocorrect.
