Once a sleepy area to the west of Lakeview has blossomed into a very desirable neighborhood. The area has easy access to downtown by way of "the el", buses, and is not far from the major highway running through the city, the Kennedy Expressway.
The main thoroughfare of this area is Roscoe Street - which has dozens of restaurants, stores, and bars running the half-mile width of Roscoe Village - from Damen Avenue to Western Avenue.
One unique aspect of the area is the antique stores. On the southern border of Roscoe Village you can find several antique shops, arguably one of the largest collection of antique stores in the entire Midwest.
