This neighborhood gets its name from many of the residents that have lived here for well over a century. It is well know for its beautiful tree-lined streets, ethnic restaurants, and large number of churches. Located less than two miles north west of downtown, it's an easy commute by bus or car. While not directly serviced by the "el", the blue line runs close by.
This area's real estate is all over the board - multi-units, single family homes, as well as several warehouses and industrial buildings. There is some nightlife here, but it's better known for its numerous shops and clothing stores that line the largest and most crowded street in the neighborhood, Chicago Avenue.
Once considered a far away, blue collar area of the city, Ukrainian Village is now a truly viable and popular option for those looking to enjoy city living while staying in a less expensive price-point than it's neighbors to the north and east.
