Welcome to North Center
Anchored by the intersection where Irving Park Road meets Damen and Lincoln Avenues, the neighborhood was originally settled by early European immigrants arriving in Chicago. Today, you’ll find plenty of quieter, family-friendly residential blocks surrounded by a solid mix of dining, entertainment and retail options along the neighborhood’s main drags.
A mix of young professionals and families.
Clean, cozy and pedestrian-friendly, the neighborhood has plenty to offer residents with its boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. Grab a beer at Half Acre Beer Company
or one of the city’s best burgers at The Bad Apple
. For those that want to get outside, head to the Hamlin Park pool in the summer, Revere Park for its multiple sports leagues for kids and adults alike or rent a kayak and cruise the north branch of the Chicago River at the Jeanne Gang designed WMS Boathouse at Clark Park.
A mix of two and three flats, vintage single family homes and a variety of new construction options.
