Chicago Real Estate in Old Town

Old Town real estate is much sought after in Chicago due to its prime location in the city. Although this now posh area was in a decline in the 1960s and 1970s, it was renovated into one of the first trendy rehabber neighborhoods. Many houses in Old Town have been renovated to their original glory, and are now very popular in the Chicago real estate market. With a large collection of glamorous houses dating back to soon after the Great Chicago Fire, Old Town is a gem in the Chicago real estate market.

Old Town is located just south of Lincoln Park, and West of the Gold Coast.

Chicago – Old Town

Ever since the rehabilitation boom, Old Town has been one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Just walk down Wells Street, and you will be surrounded by enough fashionable restaurants and bars to keep you busy for years. The beautiful brick facades date back to the 19th century and give Old Town a very unique feel. There are major commercial areas on Wells Street, North Avenue, and Division Street that are filled with trendy shops, theaters, restaurants and hip bars giving Old Town both a peaceful day scene and an exciting night life.

One of the most famous spots in Old Town is the Second City Comedy Theater on North Wells Street. Many great comedians such as John Belushi, Mike Myers and Bill Murray have kick started their careers from this small but very talented venue. Second City now offers one of the best improvisational training centers in the industry, and offers a venue for these upcoming stars at the Piper’s Alley complex just a few doors down from the main stage. Second City has brought much excitement and laughter to Old Town, and has found its spot in the hearts and laughing bellies of many Chicagoans.

Definitely one of the most comfortable and beautiful neighborhoods in Chicago, Old Town has become one of the most popular places to live in the city. Plenty of attractions keep this neighborhood alive at all hours of the day and night. So, if you’re looking for a nice place to live or laugh, remember Old Town.
