Wicker Park

Just outside the Chicago Loop and west of Old Town, the Wicker Park neighborhood isn’t quite in the heart of the city—and yet, it encapsulates all the things you love about city living. Its vibrance and eclectic atmosphere entice musicians, artists, foodies, and freethinking bohemian types to enjoy diversity and culture in one of the hippest communities around. 

In a city with numerous pockets of coolness, Wicker Park has been chosen time and again as the locale for movies and television, becoming well-versed in catering to Hollywood. It’s hosted MTV’s Real World, John Cusack’s High Fidelity, the Showtime hit Shameless (as well as Chicago’s own Chicago Fire PD).

Wicker Park has something for everyone:

  • Shopping-made-easy, offering the best of high-end retail leaders (think Yeti and Lululemon) and sophisticated, locally owned boutiques (check out Kokorokoko and Myopic Bookstore).
  • The 606 elevated trail runs 2.7 miles and gives runners and bikers a place to burn off the calories consumed in the nearby eateries while taking in the sites of fabulous murals and architectural wonders.
  • Beautiful green spaces and parks for younger kids of all ages; awesome dive bars and nightlife for older kids of all ages.
  • Those who love tacos (Big Star tacos with outdoor seating), those who love pasta (watch it be made through the windows of Tortello), and those who love coffee and cafes (The Robey Chicago Hotel- eat, drink, stay the night).
  • Care for a stroll? Feel free to walk the stunning streets and take in the views of the magnificent historic homes and buildings; the area is protected by the Chicago Landmark Association, so you’ll get an eyeful of Chicago’s past.

Never lacking in profound architectural acumen, you’ll find yourself surrounded by authentic gray and brownstones, exquisite rehabbed single-family homes, and modernized loft-like condos. Wicker Park’s median home prices come in at $550,000, and they’re worth every penny.
