Why Bucktown / Wicker Park?
Over the past two decades, thousands of new Wicker Park residents discovered that the quick commute downtown, unparalleled nightlife offerings, and never-ending string of new bars and trendy restaurants called to them. As a result, the shabbier apartment buildings have gone down, and in their place are new homes, condos, townhomes, and a variety of all of Chicago’s housing stock.
Meanwhile, just up Milwaukee Ave. from Wicker, Bucktown proceeded to take in everyone who wanted the convenience of Wicker Park with a slightly quieter and more family-friendly feel. Bordering Wicker to its north and northwest, Bucktown offers more single-family homes and quieter streets that are great for families and young professionals alike.
