About Lincoln Park
Lincoln Park is one of Chicago’s largest and most distinct neighborhoods. Filled with high-end luxury homes as well as student-rented apartments, the neighborhood caters to all types of people. Lincoln Park features lots of shopping, restaurants, and bars along Clark Street as well as access to Lake Michigan beaches on it’s east border.
While near Depaul University there are clusters of students, elsewhere in Lincoln Park you’ll find rows of single family homes along quiet streets.
A day in Lincoln Park can start with brunch along Clark Street, a walk through the Zoo and the namesake park, then head towards North Avenue Beach for a bit before dinner near Armitage. While single family homes often run into the luxury market pricing, renting is still affordable as are many condo developments.
