Lincoln Park Downtown Chicago Homes
Few neighborhoods can boast as many cultural attractions as Lincoln Park. Located on the city’s north side and edged to the east by the beautiful greenery of the park that also bears its name, Lincoln Park is an almost perfect urban location. Area residents and visitors alike are welcome to take advantage of world class restaurants, coffee houses, boutiques, bars and cultural institutions that make up the fabric of this thriving and vital part of the city.
Lincoln Park is bordered by Diversey Parkway to the north, Lake Michigan to the east, North Avenue to the south and the Chicago River to the west. Despite its rather inauspicious beginnings in the early 1800s as a forested swampland, Lincoln Park has grown into a flourishing contemporary neighborhood with a well-deserved reputation as a great living space for the upwardly mobile. This is in spite of a somewhat dubious past during the “Prohibition Era”. It was at the Biograph Theater (still in operation but now as a live theater), that notorious bank robber, John Dillinger, was gunned down by the FBI. That was in 1934, however, and incidents like that have long been relegated to the history books.
