Make Chicago Home: Ravenswood

Located on the north side of Chicago, adjacent to Lincoln Square and North Center neighborhoods, Ravenswood is known for its tree-lined streets, historic architecture, and bustling local economy. Home to industrial and creative manufacturers, Ravenswood’s trendy commercial district boasts a vibrant mix of cafes, taverns, boutiques, craft breweries, restaurants, artist studios, tech start-ups, and an engaged residential community.

Public amenities like parks, tennis courts, and libraries populate the walkable neighborhood. One of the newest attractions in the community is the Sculpture Garden, a public art display located along Ravenswood Avenue. Cutting through Ravenswood Avenue, you’ll run into the Industrial Corridor, also known to Chicagoans as “Malt Row,” an area that has earned the reputation of being “Chicago’s most diverse beer destination.”
