This charming, laid back “village within the city” is known for its residential appeal. This neighborhood features boutique shopping and local restaurants along the main boulevard, Roscoe Street. Wine bars and small, local dive bars are a primary source of neighborhood nightlife.
The streets are filled with brownstones, both as single family homes and multi-flat units. Recent construction has also added many new condos and single family homes to the neighborhood. And remaining from the late 19th century and early 20th century, 2 and 3 flats are plentiful.
Homes tend to be much more affordable than Lincoln Park and most areas of Lakeview. This combination of variety and affordability attracts most Roscoe Village homeowners.
