Lincoln Park is multi-faceted north side neighborhood. If you have an appreciation for green space, Lincoln Park not only has the sprawling park of its namesake, but plenty of others: check out Oz Park for statues of Wizard of Oz characters, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool for serene relaxation, or the dog park at Wriggly Field for wholesome fun.
Looking to shop 'til you drop? Lincoln Park has plenty of spots to find the newest fashion styles and home decor. The neighborhood plays host to plenty of boutiques and locally-owned shops such as the carefully curated music selections at Dave's Records, affordable yet fashionable styles at Alice & Wonder on Webster Avenue and fabulous custom bags at Laudi Vidni. Or if you want to minimize walking, you'll find dozens of stores in the recently opened New City complex.
Weekends in Lincoln Park are everything you could want - brunch spots galore, afternoons at Lincoln Park Zoo and live shows from every genre at Lincoln Hall. Treat your sweet tooth at Many B's or Molly's Cupcakes or dine at any of the dozens of resturants throughout the neighborhood. Our favourites include Summer House Santa Monica, unique tastes at Del Seoul, Mediterannean cuisine at Galit, or upscale dining at the picturesque North Pond.
There is quite the selection of real estate in Lincoln Park. Endless apartment buildings, many of which were built in the 1930's and 40's, house classic Chicago apartments, some of which are rehabbed.
Lincoln Park also includes DePaul University, where students flock to larger apartments, rare for the city, but not for the neighborhood. You'll spot single family homes, some of which have a modern feel. Keep an eye out for the occassional sprawling mansion, too!
