Considered to be one of Chicago’s most desirable and affluent neighborhoods, Lincoln Park is certainly the greenest. The park (that the neighborhood takes its name from) is huge in itself, and Chicago’s largest by a good margin. It spans several neighborhoods, beginning in Lincoln Park at North Avenue and ends six miles to the north at Ardmore Avenue in the Edgewater neighborhood on Chicago’s north side.
If you enjoy community events, the arts, and recreation, then Lincoln Park could be the place for you. The Lincoln Park Zoo and the lakefront paths are true gems, not to mention the many harbors, tennis courts, and ball parks. There’s even a golf course! And Lincoln Park is also home to the well-renowned DePaul University, which prides itself on its involvement in the community and the city’s culture as a whole.
Being this close to the heart of the city is another major advantage. The city center is just minutes to the south via several public transportation options, making this an ideal location for those who prefer a brief commute. Moreover, with a vast array of property types — from studio condominiums to mini mansions — you’re sure to find the ideal home for any budget!
