Not surprisingly , this neighborhood gets its name from the home of Chicago's North Side professional baseball team, the Chicago Cubs. Located at the corner of Clark and Addison streets, Wrigley Field is the centerpiece of this vibrant area, a neighborhood located within the boundaries of Lakeview.
Wrigley Field , also referred to as "The Friendly Confines, is considered a shrine for baseball fans, sun worshipers, and fun seekers alike. It is one of only a few ballparks located in a residential urban area, which adds to its already potent charm. Its location has also had a tremendously positive effect on real estate in the Wrigleyville (and larger Lakeview) area. A combination of new construction condos and century old two- and three-flats represent the majority of housing in the area.
The surrounding area has thrived in recent years. The streets in the area are littered with a wide variety of restaurants, bars and sports-oriented shops. The three-block stretch of Clark Street just south of Addison has no less than 50 restaurants and bars to enjoy.
