About Wicker Park and Bucktown

Wicker Park

Wicker Park, a northwest Chicago neighborhood bounded on the east at 1600 West Ashland and on the west at 2400 West Western, was formerly viewed of as a Bohemian refuge in the city, an artists' haven for the counter-culture. Within the past few years, the area has been transformed to now resemble a trendy neighborhood ripe with an astounding number of shopping, dining and club options that all reiterate the same hip, funky image. Comprised of a large number of galleries and studios, Wicker Park is still home to one of the city’s largest communities of working artists. Yet, now the allure of Wicker Park has extended beyond that of just artists to young families and working professionals. 


Those who choose to buy a home in Bucktown are often attracted to the unique combination of landmark architecture, tree-lined streets and proximity to downtown. The neighborhood of Bucktown is located on the near northwest side of Chicago about two miles from downtown and directly adjacent to the neighborhood of Wicker Park, bounded roughly by the Kennedy Expressway on the east, Western Avenue on the west and Fullerton and North Avenues on the north and south.

Bucktown was designed by architect Daniel Burnham in the 1890s and named for the goatskept in the backyards of its early residents. During the past decade, it has been transforming from its earlier blue-collar, primarily Polish roots into a conveniently located, upscale-artsy neighborhood. Poles have largely been replaced by a Mexican community, especially at the western side of Bucktown. The community is proud of its mix of nationalities and demographics. Along the streets of Bucktown you will find a combination of old and new, trendy and gritty, American, Latin and Eastern European, and more. It is this unique and spirited mix that no doubt prompted MTV's The Real World to choose a centrally located building in Bucktown to call home for the Chicago season of its series.



Welcome to the Bloomingdale Trail aka "The 606" Chicago's greatest new park

The 606 brings together arts, history, design, trails for bikers, runners, and walkers, event spaces, alternative transportation avenues, and green, open space for neighbors, Chicagoans, and the world.
The Bloomingdale Trail is the centerpiece of The 606. We created a 2.7 mile, multi-use recreational trail and park along an elevated, unused rail line. The trail will serve as an alternative transportation corridor, a living work of art, and a spectacular new green space for all Chicagoans to enjoy. The ladscaped trail will start at Walsh Park just west of Ashland Avenue (1600 west) and run west to Ridgeway avenue (3750 west).
