What can you tell me about the area before I move there?

Hey all,

I am considering a condo purchase in the area for me and my dog. It would be between Clark and Broadway and Berwyn and Bryn Mawr. I just wanted to see if anyone would be willing to share any thoughts on the area good or bad. I'm just looking for a little more insight from people who live in the area as to how they like or hate it before I consider making a serious offer on the condo.



  • not a stakeholder I am the greatest!

    Not a single downside? Really?

  • Every place has its downsides. That's why i posed the question. To learn what some of the downsides are becsuse i see a lot of upsides. Id just rather know what some feel the downsides are so im better prepared.

  • Just adopted from Treehouse. Great experience and great cat :)

  • Yay! Now, go do the Stray Cat Strut. I would (I did it last year), but I messed up my knee last weekend and walking 5K won't help! I drop off extra food there regularly. I have three furballs, and occasionally they're...um...fussy. Tree House gets the food at which they turn up their little noses.

  • I love my Misty and Louie...I got them from PAWS, brother and sister. They were rescues from a feral litter. I took a while with those two....

Tour 165 Years of Chicago Houses in Five Minutes

Ravenswood's Abbott House at 4605 N. Hermitage (1891, Queen Anne), is immediately recognizable by its purple wood siding. In Old Irving Park, the John and Clara Merchant House (1872, Second Empire) in the 3800 block of North Kostner Avenue, gets a nod for its unusual four-sided mansard roof.

    Tour 165 Years of Chicago Houses in Five Minutes
    LINCOLN SQUARE - Chicago's skyscrapers are total attention magnets, but at street level it's the houses that give the city its character. This slideshow, put together by the folks at Rent Cafe, features 165 years of Chitown's residential styles, from a gothic revival built in 1850 in Marquette Park to a contemporary/modern Bucktown home built in 2014.

  • I volunteer at the Irving park food pantry. Every Wednesday I marvel at the merchant house. It's really beautiful and so lovingly cared for. Thanks to everyone that owns historic homes and respects what they mean
