Uptown

Community Area: Uptown

Located between Montrose and Foster, from the lake west to Clark Street, Uptown is the colorful Chicago neighborhood that was once the stomping ground of Charlie Chaplin and Al Capone. Today, the neighborhood is attracting many new homebuyers with its relative affordability and easy access to the lakefront and public transportation. Uptown also encompasses the areas known as Sheridan Park and Buena Park.

Homebuyers have their choice of many housing styles, from lakefront high-rises and vintage walk-ups to new-construction condos and townhomes. A number of beautiful old mansions also line several streets just west of Margate Park.

Uptown is one of the city's most popular destinations for music lovers. For rock and hip hop shows, there's the famous Aragon Ballroom and Riviera Theatre. For jazz, it's the legendary Green Mill, an old Capone haunt that Chicago's most notorious gangster tunneled under so he could bring in bootleg whiskey or beat a hasty retreat from the cops. The tunnels still exist. The neighborhood also has a number of independent bookstores, art galleries, cafes, and restaurants. Uptown has a very active resident population that seeks to balance new development with the preservation of the neighborhood's past and diversity.
