Interested in moving to Lakeview in Chicago? Bordered by Diversey Parkway to the South, Irving Park Road to the North, Ravenswood Avenue to the West, and Lake Michigan to the East, Lakeview is one of the largest Chicago neighborhoods on the city’s North side. With its bustling shopping districts, endless array of bars and restaurants, and blossoming scene for art and entertainment, Lakeview is one of the most sought after locations for Chicago residents. It’s no wonder you’re interested in relocating to this unique lakefront community!
Communities within Lakeview include East Lakeview, an affluent area with upscale condominiums, West Lakeview, an area comprised of families and young professionals, Boystown, one of the largest and most well-known LGBT communities in the nation, and Wrigleyville, home to Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs. When deciding on your geographical area within Lakeview, make sure to consider these various communities as they are diverse, yet offer something for everyone. However, even if you decide to live in a community that’s not quite as lively as you had hoped, Lakeview’s street festivals, music venues and art shows are more than likely just a few blocks away.
In terms of the location, Lakeview is only 4 miles north of the loop, making it a prime real estate destination for those looking to stay within the Chicago city limits yet reside outside of the downtown area. The homes in Lakeview lie on beautifully landscaped, tree-lined streets and are of various architectural styles. These houses can range in age from a few days old to nearly a century old. Furthermore, public transportation via the Chicago Transit Authority is preferable to the residents there, even though owning a car is still possible and manageable in this part of the city.
