Lincoln Square

Community Area: Lincoln Square

Lincoln Square manages to be both trendy and old-world charming at the same time.


The community celebrates its century-old German heritage with a number of ever-popular restaurants and bars. Lincoln Avenue offers an eclectic mix of sophisticated eateries, corner cafes and favorite neighborhood hangouts.


Centered around a bustling shopping and dining district on Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Square became one of Chicago's first commuter suburbs when the Ravenswood elevated train line was completed in 1907. Today residents have convenient access to the CTA Brown Line and Metra’s Union Pacific North Line.


The neighborhood’s quiet residential streets are lined with bungalows, greystones and brick two- and three-flats, many recently rehabbed. Lovely Victorian and Prairie School homes can be found along the North Branch of the Chicago River. Although single-family homes in Lincoln Square can run upwards of $1 million, vintage apartment buildings restored as condominiums offer an affordable option. New-construction options are also available in the neighborhood, including single-family homes, townhomes, three-flat condominiums and mid-rise buildings.

Lincoln Square’s lively cultural scene includes the Old Town School of Folk Music as well as annual festivals including the Chicago Folk & Roots music festival and the German-American Fest, which draw crowds from throughout Chicago and the Midwest.
