Wicker Park is a hugely popular neighborhood on Chicago’s northwest side. It is often considered the epicenter for hipster culture, and therefore offers creative food, lots of music, and access to “geek chic” culture (as seen in the Wormhole coffee shop, a neighborhood staple filled to the brim with Star Wars, Nintendo, Ghostbusters, and Back to the Future trappings, complete with a full-sized DeLorean). The neighborhood’s heart and soul is Milwaukee Avenue; along this main thoroughfare you can eat a gourmet burger, study yoga, grab a delicious coffee and croissant, shop for unusual and used books, get a tattoo, buy designer clothes, catch a DJ set, enjoy an artisan donut, or sip a craft cocktail. Real estate in Wicker Park has become highly valuable; many properties are updated, stylish single-family homes just steps away from parks, schools, and the 606 Trail. It’s an exciting, progressive neighborhood with a little something for everyone.
