Within the past decade, Bucktown/Wicker Park has emerged as one of the most exciting neighborhoods in Chicago and one of the trendiest in the country. Located around the six-corner intersection of North, Damen, and Milwaukee, Bucktown/Wicker Park boasts a thriving artist community that hosts the annual Around the Coyote arts festival. But Bucktown/Wicker Park has also grown popular with young urbanites who enjoy the energy and diversity of this North Side neighborhood.
Bucktown Real Estate and Wicker Park Real Estate feature a variety of housing styles and price ranges. Condominiums take the form of vintage walk-ups, rustic lofts and new-construction three-flats and mid-rises. Single-family homes range from smaller cottages and bungalows (often prime candidates for tear-downs) to gut-rehabbed greystones and eye-popping multi-million-dollar new construction. The Wicker Park District features a number of historic 19th century mansions that also fetch top dollar.
A Saturday stroll up Damen Avenue takes you past hip cafes, independent bookstores, raucous bars, expensive boutiques, hole-in-the-wall art galleries, yoga studios and peaceful city parks. The neighborhood has become a mecca for shoppers in search of the hottest New York and L.A. fashions, and for foodies in search of a variety of cuisine from French bistro to sushi. Bucktown and Wicker Park are equally adored by tattooed punk rockers and stroller pushing moms, and everyone seems to get along just fine. Another reason to love Bucktown/Wicker Park is its incredibly convenient location. The CTA Blue Line takes residents into the Loop in less than 10 minutes and out to O'Hare Airport in a half-hour. Bucktown/Wicker Park is also right off the Kennedy Expressway for easy access to the city and suburbs.
