Lincoln Square

Community Area: Lincoln Square

Centered around a bustling shopping and dining district at the intersection of Lawrence, Western and Lincoln Avenues 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, this Chicago neighborhood still gives residents convenient access to public transportation including the CTA Brown Line and the Metra Union Pacific North Line. Likewise, the community effortlessly blends trendy hot spots with its century-old German heritage.

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

Lincoln Square's German heritage lives on in a number of German restaurants including the Chicago Brauhaus and Lutz Continental Café; however, Lincoln Avenue also serves up an eclectic mix of sophisticated eateries, corner cafes and favorite neighborhood hangouts such as Bad Apple. A lively cultural scene is fueled by the Old Town School of Folk Music as well as annual festivals like the Chicago Folk & Roots music festival and the German-American Fest, which draw crowds from throughout Chicago and the Midwest.
