Lincoln Park Real Estate

Lincoln Park is a vibrant, idyllic urban escape flanking the shores of Lake Michigan just north of the hustle and bustle of downtown and the Gold Coast. This pleasant neighborhood is replete with low-rise tree­-lined residential streets, lined with picture-perfect greystones and walk­-ups.

Enjoy boutique shopping on Armitage Avenue, grab lunch at a quaint cafe on Clark Street, catch the game at your favorite neighborhood sports bars, or hang out all night at a club on Lincoln Avenue before retiring to your quiet street to call it a day. Lincoln Park is nestled alongside its namesake, the city's largest park, which is packed with over 1,200 acres of gardens, beaches, walking and bicycle trails, and a variety of athletic facilities.

Public transportation is easy: Red and Brown Line trains run north-south through Lincoln Park. There are also many buses, which traverse the neighborhood, including the Clark 22, Broadway 36, Diversey, Fullerton, North, Halsted buses

Perfect for those who want easy access to the loop via mass transit, a more residential feel than the Loop, a better price point than River North or Old Town, and a more casual vibe than the Gold Coast.
