Uptown Real Estate

Chicago's Uptown neighborhood is an historic center of leisure and entertainment, complete with vintage high rises, grand theaters, and classic concert halls.  Uptown includes the smaller neighborhoods of Buena Park, Sheridan Park and Margate Park.  

Perfect for those who...

Want to live in an rejuvenating neighborhood with historic Chicago charm.  Want steady access to the Red Line, fantastic ethnic foods and plenty of entertainment options.  More nightlife than Ravenswood and Rogers Park, less expensive than Lincoln Park or Lakeview.

Uptown is bounded to the west by Ravenswood Avenue, to the north by Foster Avenue, to the east by Lake Michigan, and to the south by Irving Park Road.

 

What it is like to live in Uptown:
