Located between Uptown and Rogers Park on Chicago's far North Side, Edgewater was once a playground for Chicago's early 20th century elite. Today, the stately mansions and posh hotels have largely been replaced by high-rises with spectacular lake views and easy access to beaches and parks. The neighborhood offers excellent access to trains and public transportation, and Loyola University is also nearby.
Many large homes and classic apartment buildings remain in Edgewater, and good deals can be had on rehabs as well as new construction and investment properties. The housing stock ranges from greystone three- and six-flats to courtyard buildings and high-rises
Moderate housing prices along with proximity to public transportation and the lakefront make this area very attractive to people of all ages, income levels and backgrounds. Residents can enjoy the beach, the park, lively cafes, restaurants, antique shops and theatres. Edgewater also has a strong network of community-based organizations.
