The Perks of Living in Old Town

Old Town HouseThe Historic neighborhood of Old Town is a rare gem in Chicago’s North Side.  For years, this affluent neighborhood has been the point of attraction for many long-time-running art festivals, the Old Town School of Music, and many historic landmarks and buildings.


Actually, there are no legal boundaries established that define the Old Town Triangle, but it is roughly bordered by Armitage to the north, Clark to the east, Division to the south, and Halsted to the west.

Old Town has a great neighborhood community atmosphere, with beautiful brick buildings and quiet side streets. Home to many of Chicago’s older, Victorian-era buildings like St. Michael’s Church (one of 7 to survive The Chicago Fire), Old Town has condos available in beautiful buildings that are nearly 50 years old. One example is Hemingway House, a full amenity high rise on 1850 North Clark Street. It was built in 1968 and has 280 units. Anyone who lives at Hemmingway House has an incredible unobstructed view of the beautiful Lincoln Park, which is connected the Chicago’s famous Lincoln Park Zoo.


Old Town has wonderful dining options like Sushi, Italian and French food as well as a variety of grocery stores like Whole Foods, Jewel, Plum Market and Treasure Island. Walk along Wells street and find wine and liquor stores, pet stores, movie theaters, Starbucks and standup comedy at The Second City and Zanies.

Old Town is minutes away from public transportation including the #156 LaSalle bus, the #22 Clark bus, the #36 Broadway bus, the Red Line and the Brown Line. It’s a great place to live for anyone who loves real historic areas of Chicago, access to shopping and entertainment, fine dining and a friendly, neighborhood atmosphere.
