Humboldt Park

Community Area: Humboldt Park

Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood, situated just five miles from downtown, is known for its social and ethnic change over the years, as well as its multicultural identity. Today the community boasts socio-economic diversity, along with an increased commitment to community infrastructure.

The neighborhood shares its name with a 207-acre park named after German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. Since its founding in 1869, the neighborhood has been home to a large Scandinavian population, followed by Germans, Poles, Italian Americans, Russian Jews, and most recently Puerto Ricans. Humboldt Park houses the Chicago landmark Humboldt Park Stable and Receptory, originally completed in 1895 by Chicago architects Frommann and Jebsen, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Home buyers can find some of the best real estate values in Humboldt Park. The neighborhood features beautiful Spanish Colonial homes in the styles of Old San Juan, greystones that line the park, brick bungalows, two-flats, and contemporary condos.

Students attend a number of Chicago Public Schools, including the prestigious charter school Rowe Clark Math & Science Academy, the Humboldt Park Montessori School, and schools operated by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese.

Located in the heart of the neighborhood, Humboldt Park features a field house with a fitness center, two gymnasiums, meeting rooms and an inland beach. Every summer, Chicagoans visit the neighborhood for the Humboldt Park Arts Festival and the Fiestas Puertorriquenas, a colorful cultural festival showcasing Puerto Rican pride. Dining options match the neighborhood's rich cultural landscape, with diners enjoying Mexican cuisine at La Encantada and southern-style soul food at Feed.
