Located in the heart of the North Side, Lakeview and Roscoe Village are two of Chicago’s most dynamic communities.
Lakeview is Chicago’s largest community area. Just minutes north of downtown, Lakeview’s vibrant streets boast some of Chicago’s best culture, shopping, and dining, including a diverse mix of “off-Loop” theaters in the Belmont Theater District, the perfect day of shopping in the Southport Corridor, and an incredible variety of indie businesses on Lincoln Avenue. Visitors flock to our neighborhood year-round to take part in our outdoor festivals and farmers markets in the summer months, and warm up in award-winning theaters and eclectic restaurants once the weather turns cold. And businesses thrive alongside destination retail and restaurants that draw customers from across Chicago with unparalleled access via three CTA train lines and four CTA bus routes.
Roscoe Village has earned the nickname “The Village Within the City” for it’s small town feel and overall charm. Nestled between Lakeview to the east, Northcenter to the north, and Lincoln Park to the south, Roscoe Village has become a melting pot of demographics and businesses. Visitors and neighbors alike take to the streets every summer to enjoy outdoor festivals and community events, in addition to experiencing the natural beauty of the neighborhood with its vibrant shops, lively arts, top rated eateries and nightlife. It's all here, waiting to be explored.
