West Town, Chicago
Located just northwest of downtown in between Wicker Park and West Loop, West Town has a diverse history and culture informed by its Eastern European roots. The neighborhood’s borders are Chicago Avenue on the north, the Chicago River on the east, the Union Pacific railroad tracks on the south and Humboldt Park on the west.
West Town combines a little bit of its older ethnic roots and mainstays with the newer, more eclectic feel of the housing and dining in the area – which is a big reason why it’s one of the city’s up-and-coming hot spots. For residents living in the cultural melting pot that is West Town, there is no lack of variety as new spots and hidden gems are constantly popping up in its development into a world-class neighborhood.
The average resident age in West Town is about 32 years old, making it a great option for a millennial crowd.

Trendy new businesses and world-class eateries are beginning to establish themselves in the area to reflect the changing population. 26% of households are families, and the award-winning schools in the area make it a great place to raise children.
Ukrainian Village, Chicago
Ukrainian Village is an interesting mix of old and new. It’s not as trendy as neighboring Bucktown and Wicker Park – but that’s one of its charms.
Located on the west side of Chicago, Ukrainian Village is a residential area that reflects the German, Polish and Ukrainian immigrants who settled in the area in the 1800s and early 1900s. As the popularity of nearby neighborhoods grew, Ukrainian Village had a resurgence, attracting a new generation looking for an affordable option in a great location.
In addition to new residents, the neighborhood has also seen a number of hip eateries, bars and boutiques pop up along Division Street, Chicago Avenue and Damen Avenue. With Wicker Park nearby, residents also have easy access to dozens of restaurants, eclectic shops, art galleries and nightlife.
While Ukrainian Village is growing rapidly, its roots are still evident today in the community’s Ukrainian National Museum, Ukrainian Cultural Center, historic churches and festivals including the annual Ukrainian Village Festival.
Homes in Ukrainian Village include single-family, multi-family, Victorian-style homes, brick cottages and two-and three-flats on quiet tree-lined streets. The community is accessible by the Kennedy Expressway, the CTA Blue Line and several bus routes.
