About Irving Park

Home to some of Chicago’s largest and most historic homes, Irving Park can often feel like a throwback in a developing city. Irving Park has a suburban-urban feel and while it’s a large neighborhood, can often feel like a hidden gem in Chicago.

Quieter than it’s neighbors to the south in Logan Square and Bucktown, Irving Park is great for families who are not interest in moving to the burbs, as it features plenty of restaurants.

Single family homes dominate Irving Park and it’s slightly further distance to downtown means slightly lower prices than some other neighborhoods on the Northwest Side of the city.
