Bucktown

Community Area: West Town

Located just a few miles northwest of Chicago’s Loop, Bucktown has become one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Chicago. Over the last decade, the community has rapidly expanded its acclaimed shopping and dining scene, attracting residents and tourists alike.

Originally a working-class neighborhood, Bucktown reportedly was named after the many goats that were raised in the neighborhood during the 19th century. The neighborhood first gained popularity as an artist’s community and has since evolved into a diverse neighborhood with a variety of housing including modern new construction, stately brownstones and loft apartments and condominiums. Transportation around Bucktown is accessible via the CTA Blue Line and various CTA bus routes. The Kennedy Expressway is also located just east of the community, providing convenient access to the city and surrounding suburbs.

As Bucktown continues to grow in popularity, Damen Avenue has emerged as one of the top retail locations in Chicago offering a mix of boutiques, consignment shops, and high-end retailers. A number of acclaimed eateries can also be found in Bucktown, including The Bristol, Coast Sushi Bar and Mindy’s Hot Chocolate. Several community events are held throughout the year, including the annual Bucktown Arts Fest, which showcases the works of hundreds of artists, as well as poets, dancers, musicians, and performers.
