The Lincoln Park neighborbood spans the area from North Ave (1600 N) to Diversey Pkwy (2800 N), from Lake Michigan west to the Chicago River. Its location is between two and three-and-a-half miles north of the center of Chicago’s Loop.
Lincoln Park is bordered on the north by Lakeview on the south by Gold Coast and on the west by Bucktown and Logan Square. You’ll sometimes see references to East Lincoln Park, which is not a recognized neighborhood, but a reference to the area east of Halsted St (800 W).
Who lives here?
Predominantly affluent, educated young people – half the population is aged 18 to 34 – and they tend to be singles or young marrieds. As you move further away from the dense areas along the lakefront, you’ll find a significant number of families with children, typically age 11 or younger. Closer to Depaul University there’s a significant student presence.
Why people move here
Lincoln Park is widely-recognized as one of the most attractive, vibrant, pedestrian-friendly, culturally rich and architecturally-interesting neighborhoods in America. Spend an hour or two walking around and you’ll have a solid feel for how Lincoln Park differs from other Chicago neighborhoods, and for why people want to live here.
The park. Lincoln Park (the park) is a huge draw. It’s one of the great urban parks in the country, and a number of the park’s prime attractions (the Zoo, Conservatory, Nature Museum, lagoons, etc.) directly adjoin the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Lake Michigan beaches are easily accessible.
Shopping, etc. The neighborhood has great shopping, dining, nightlife, bars, theaters, health clubs, and salons.
Transportation. Public transportation to the Loop is excellent, in the eastern parts of Lincoln Park, mediocre when you get far enough west. There are CTA Red Line stops at Diversey Pkwy, Fullerton Pkwy and North Ave, and Brown Line stops at Diversey, Fullerton, Armitage Ave and Sedgwick St (just south of North Ave). The eastern park of Lincoln Park has a variety of CTA bus routes to the Loop. East – west buses connect to those routes and to the El from the western parts of Lincoln Park. Cabs are all-pervasive in the area.
Neighborliness. The Lincoln Park neighborhoods have a decidedly more residential feel than other downtown Chicago neighborhoods, with great vintage architecture side-by-side with the newer buildings and high-rises It also has a rich tradition of civic involvement, and long-standing active civic, religious and neighborhood organizations.
Schools. Lincoln Park has some of the best public and private schools in the city, and is home to DePaul University’s main campus.
