Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, is one of the nicest and most popular places on the “north side” of the city. The boundaries can loosely be defined by Diversey Parkway on the north, Lake Michigan on the east, the Chicago River on the west and North Ave on the South. Lincoln Park offers excellent public transit with 3 brown line “L” stops at Diversey, Fullerton and Armitage, as well as two red line stops at Fullerton and North Ave. Multiple fantastic grocery stores are evenly spread out through Lincoln Park, two Trader Joe’s, two Whole Foods as well as a flagship Mariano’s in the brand new New City shopping and dining development!
Also in Lincoln Park are many different bars, restaurants and cultural activities to give residents the downtown experience while also providing more of a neighborhood feel. Apartment hunters looking for upscale living that is a little different than the downtown high rises should definitely consider Lincoln Park!
Depending on your proximity to a train station an average commute into downtown on the “L” (elevated train) can take 20 to 30 minutes door to door.
