The artsy folks that once inhabited Bucktown have emigrated south, and many have planted roots in this funky enclave. Wicker Park, after which the neighborhood gets its name, is just south of the northern border of North Avenue, located on Damen Avenue.
Many Chicago hipsters have decided to call this area home - the arthouse flavor, unique and fun restaurants and bars, and the potentially lower cost of living all give Wicker Park a distinct personality all its own.
Covering half the size of its friends to the north, the real estate in Wicker Park still has a lot to offer. Some streets contain century-old mansions that are as impressive today as they were when they were built. Most of the area consists of vine covered two- and three-flats, exposing its connection with the rest of the city.
