West Town Neighborhood Real Estate News and Reviews
"The neighborhoods on Chicago’s near northwest side are an invigorating blend of reflection and reinvention. Families from Ukraine, Poland and Puerto Rico settled here, and today expressions of their cultures can be found in museums, churches and cafes serving traditional dishes. These have been joined by new restaurants and bars, fresh faces that honor a past of ice cream parlors, tiki dens and breakfast as the best meal of the day. These neighborhoods are great places for long walks — to parks, pubs and blues clubs — on bothlandmark boulevards and a landscaped trail where freight trains once rumbled." - The New York Times
Ukrainian Village in West Town Named #1 Hottest Neighborhood in the Country for 2016
Humboldt Park Named #10 Hottest Neighborhood in the Country for 2014
"Affordability has topped buyers’ lists of concerns for the past year, and many who dropped out of the market last year because of it are back with more experience under their belts. They’ve done their research and identified those pockets that are still affordable, but also offer the stores, coffee shops and short rides to downtown that make communities livable. This increasingly rare combination can be found in Ukrainian Village in Chicago, Eastwood in Nashville, Ericsson in Minneapolis and other hot ‘hoods across the country." - RedFin
