Located within the neighborhood of Lakeview, just north of Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville is one of the most storied and recognizable neighborhoods in the city of Chicago.
The area was first inhabited in by the Miami, Ottawa and Winnebago Native American tribes, in the early 18th and 19th centuries. Conrad Sulzer settled the area in 1837, and the earliest permanent structures were erected shortly thereafter. In recent years, the neighborhood has become increasingly popular, as renovations and reconstruction have changed the dynamics of the area, adding green space, as well as popular bars, shops and restaurants.
The average sales price of a single-family home in Wrigleyville in 2014 was $1,311,229.
Public education is provided by the Chicago Public Schools system, which offers education to children in grades K-12. Numerous ‘L’ trains run through the community, including the Red, Purple and Brown Lines, which provide service at Addison and Belmont Stations. Additionally, the CTA runs dozens of bus routes through the neighborhood, which connects Wrigleyville with all areas of the city.
A beautiful neighborhood of verdant parks, quiet residential streets and bustling retail districts, Lakeview beckons Chicagoans with attractions such as the lakefront, scores of restaurants and bars, eclectic shopping districts such as the Southport Corridor, and the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. Like Lincoln Park, Lakeview boasts a number of the city's top schools and a wealth of cultural attractions including a thriving theater scene.
