Lake View encompasses many of Chicago's most popular neighborhoods: Lake View East, Sheridan Station Corridor, Boystown, Wrigleyville, and Southport Corridor. In Lake View, you'll also find the Belmont Theater District (which includes over 30 theaters), where The Annoyance Theater rules improv, Laugh Factory rules comedy, and Briar Street Theatre plays host to the Blue Man Group.
Take a walk down Broadway, where you can stop in at Unabridged Books for the best recent reads, or drop in at The Crepe Shop for something sweet or savory, or grab a vegan deep dish pizza at Kitchen 17. If you've got a love for caffeine, you'll absolutely have to pick up enough for your evening cup of tea and morning cup of coffee at The Coffee & Tea Exchange. Be sure to end your evening at Bobtail for the best ice cream and root beer floats in the area.
While this neighborhood is highly walkable, you'll find access to public transportation in Lake View to be some of the best in the entire city, with easy access to the Red, Brown and Purple Line CTA trains and many bus stops. In the summer, Lake View residents can enjoy watching the boats at Belmont Harbor, and walking along the lakefront.
Your space in Lake View can be a variety of things. Do you prefer a high-rise building with views of Lake Michigan? Perhaps you're more into tree-lined streets, and this neighborhood has plenty of those. Two and three-story walk-ups are along those charming streets, mixed in with smaller apartment buildings of the modern and classic variety. Sprawling, modern single family homes are also found here, many of which are new constructions with high ceilings, quartz countertops, and stunning finishes. Mansions with timeless architecture, gardens, and front gates are included in the mix.
