Just blocks from the lakefront, Andersonville offers residents a vibrant, self-sustaining community on Chicago’s north side.
At the forefront of the “shop local” movement, the historic and bustling business district along Clark Street is a mecca of locally owned businesses including independent shops, restaurants, bars and bistros. Residents can find almost everything nearby, from the grocery store and dentist to fine art and antique shops.
Tree-lined streets, walkable schools, playgrounds and parks make Andersonville a popular place to call home. Housing includes a mix of handsome greystone two- and three-flats, 1920s walk-ups, redbrick apartment complexes and large single-family homes. Buyers can also find gut rehabs and beautiful new construction homes with backyard gardens.
In addition to dinner, cocktails, music, magic and the Andersonville Farmers Market, residents can enjoy al fresco dining with plenty of dog-friendly patios. Andersonville also hosts one of Chicago’s most popular street festivals, Midsommarfest.
The neighborhood is accessible by express buses, the “L” and Lake Shore Drive.
