Even more great neighborhoods to live and explore!

We’ve already talked about South Loop, Lincoln and Logan Squares, and Ukranian Village, but that is just the beginning of amazing places to live in Chicago. Each neighborhood has its own flair- a touch of Chicago mixed with a unique spin. These spots are some of the best places to call home; see why:

  • Pilsen- This colorful neighborhood is rich with culture. While its roots are Lithuanian, it morphed into a hub of the Chicago hispanic story, while welcoming every walk at the same time. Festivals are rampant in the summer- a flurry of street food, music, and excitement in the air. English garden apartments are a thing here, but you can find some great rehabbed single family homes, 3 flats, and worker’s cottages that date back to the stockyard days. This very old part of Chicago is always thriving with new life.
  • Albany Park- Chicago’s literal melting pot, you can’t live in this neighborhood without finding your favourite: taco, baklava, coffee, falafel, and/or weird little gift shop. So many languages are spoken here, they might just turn into one. With courtyard buildings, single family homes, and a few 3-flats flanking the Brown Line, it a cozy little corner of the city that still not too far from the bustle of downtown.
  • Wicker Park- As the Blue Line roars overhead, training its way through the alleys of street art, the people of Wicker Park walk along Milwaukee Avenue, stopping in book stores, grabbing a coffee, or just enjoying the random musical pop up on the corner. This hot neighborhood has always been a hub of creativity. Old Victorian homes stand next to modern 3-flats and worker’s cottages. It’s a fun place to call home.
  • Lakeview- There are a lot of options in Lakeview, as it encompasses quite a few walkable areas- from the main drag of Southport’s upscale boutiques to Lincoln Avenue’s stretch of funky restaurants and off-beat gift shops. Neighbors live in lovely single family homes, classic 3-flats, and the occasional courtyard building. Being so centrally located, just off the Brown Line, this neighborhood will quickly become your favorite place to call home.
