Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park

Ranked by Chicago Magazine in 2014 as one of Chicago’s 12 hottest neighborhoods, Lincoln Park is one of the North Side’s choicest neighborhoods. A diverse group of people call this neighborhood home. Therefore, residents from the native Chicago family, the transplant professional, the university student, to Chicago’s ‘shakers and movers’, and everyone in-between, call Lincoln Park home.

Boundaries are North Avenue north to Diversey Parkway, and the Chicago River east to Lake Michigan. The neighborhood is adjacent to Lakeview on the north and Old Town and the Gold Coast on the south. The CTA’s Brown, Purple, and Red Lines service it at the Diversey, Fullerton, and Armitage El stops. Multiple bus lines also service this neighborhood. Consequently, the commute to the Loop easy.

The neighborhood is a popular shopping destination. It includes most of Clybourn Corridor, and features a variety of local boutiques, national chains, and eating and entertainment options. If you’re looking for a more local shopping experience, Armitage Corridor offers mostly locally owned shops and restaurants.

Nightlife and entertainment options abound. The famous Park West club is on Armitage Avenue, and Lincoln Hall sits on Lincoln Avenue at Fullerton. In addition, Clark Street, Lincoln Avenue, Halsted Street, and North Avenue all include additional dining, nightlife, and entertainment options.

A large portion of Chicago Park District’s Lincoln Park lies along the eastern border of the neighborhood. This green space provides a quiet respite for the nature and outdoors lover and includes miles of bike and walking trails. Also located along the easter border is the Lincoln Park Zoo, free to the public. In addition are the Lincoln Park Conservatory (free admittance), the Alfred Caldwell Lilly Pool (free admittance), and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.

The neighborhood is serviced by several public elementary schools. Lincoln Park’s public secondary school, Lincoln Park High School, is renowned as one of the best public secondary schools in Chicago. DePaul University, a private Catholic University known for its high educational standards, calls Lincoln Park home.

In 2007, Forbes Magazine names a portion of Lincoln Park as Chicago’s most expensive block. Many homes here sell for $5M-$10M or more. However, the neighborhood also boasts a plethora of housing at a lower price point. Lofts, flats, and condos are common in this neighborhood, and rental options aren’t difficult to find.
