Chicago's Lakeview Neighborhood

Lakeview Wikipedia

Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood is within walking distance of almost everything - trendy boutiques, Chicago's "Off-Loop" theater district, galleries, spectacular nightlife and a wealth of restaurants and coffeehouses. Neighborhood residents enjoy ample opportunities for boating, jogging, volleyball, golfing, skating, biking, fishing and more. Lakeview also offers some of the most diverse shopping in the city.

Lakeview is home to many smaller neighborhoods, including Lakeshore East, West Lakeview, Roscoe Village, Graceland West, Southeast Ravenswood, Belmont Harbor and Wrigleyville, home of the Chicago Cubs. The charm and beauty of tree-lined streets and Lake Michigan, combined with a location just minutes from downtown Chicago, make this neighborhood especially attractive.

"The pleasant surprise of Lakeview & Wrigleyville is that once you venture 20 steps from the main shopping, restaurant and bar/club areas, you'll find yourself in beautifully maintained tree-lined streets, with rows of lovely houses in all manner of architectural styles, ranging in age from near-century-old to 3 days ago."

"Lakeview's borders are roughly defined as Diversey Parkway on the south; Ravenswood Avenue on the west; Irving Park Road on the north and Lake Michigan to the east."

"Transportation in and out of this particular neighborhood is plentiful, with the Ravenswood El Red, Purple and Brown line stops at Sheridan, Sheffield, Southport, Addison, Belmont, Wellington, and Diversey and CTA buses running on Sheridan, Halsted, Clark, Belmont, Lincoln, Diversey and Addison."
