It boasts close proximity to downtown Chicago, numerous restaurants, stores and bars located within it's borders, parks and tree-lined streets, convenient transportation via "the el" or by bus, and of course Lake Michigan just steps away. Another benefit to this neighborhood is the Lincoln Park Zoo, one of only two FREE zoos located in metropolitan areas. Additionally, it is home to DePaul University, found in the heart of Lincoln Park. Tens of thousands of Chicagoans who want to have everything within reach call Lincoln Park home.
The real estate in Lincoln Park has seen phenomenal appreciation over the years. All types of housing - from condos to townhouses to single-family homes - have remained immensely attractive to the throngs of homebuyers who continue to purchase here.
Interesting bits of history help define Lincoln Park's character. On Lincoln Avenue just north of Fullerton, gangster John Dillinger was shot and killed by police following the tip given them by the infamous "Lady in Red". Not far from there, in the 2200 block of North Clark Street, is the site where the brutal St. Valentine's Day Massacre took place.
