Description:
Immediately north of the city are quiet tree-lined residential streets. Some of Chicago’s finest and most expensive housing is here, along with fine restaurants and night spots, boutiques and theaters.

The focus of outdoor activity is Lincoln Park (the park, not the neighborhood that shares its name), which stretches from the Gold Coast north to Edgewater. It welcomes joggers, tennis players, golfers, cyclists, bladders and ballplayers, as well as visitors to the zoo, conservatory, beaches and marinas.

The area is home to the Old Town Triangle, a neighborhood packed with cottages, rowhouses and townhouses of both brick and frame construction. Streets are narrow, and homes are often small, but charmingly desirable.

A favorite of young professionals and families, the sophisticated Lincoln Park neighborhood presents a mix of mansions and two-flats, apartment dwellers and home owners. It parallels the park and lakefront.

Just west is the DePaul neighborhood, which takes its name from century-old DePaul University, whose large campus is a focal point of the area. DePaul offers the same stately single-family and multiple-unit housing found in Lincoln Park and Old Town, as well as the original old Chicago rowhouses with their richly ornamented Victorian facades. You’ll also find handsome restored greystones and newer homes designed by Chicago’s top architects.

As urban dwellers have reclaimed old schools, churches, warehouses and factories—and converted them into desirable living spaces—the boundaries of this neighborhood have pushed farther west. Nearby are Wrightwood and Sheffield, two areas that share many of the same characteristics and housing stock. Southwest is Ranch Triangle, an area that hugs Clybourn Avenue.
