Lincoln Park is one of Chicago’s richest neighborhoods—and not just in terms of the wealth of its residents. This lakeside neighborhood is rich in history, cultural institutions, architectural heritage and lifestyle opportunities. But the neighborhood wasn’t always so desirable. As properties were subdivided and neglected after World War II, the area was sliding into disrepair and decay. Organized in 1953, the Lincoln Park Conservation Association slowly turned the neighborhood around. In the 70's and 80's the vintage apartments and lively bar scene attracted thousands of young singles, but rising property values eventually pushed them out to neighboring areas like Lakeview and Wicker Park.
Lincoln Park’s vintage graystones were converted to upscale condos, and some were torn down and replaced by high-end single-family homes. While the area around DePaul University still attracts a younger crowd, for the most part older couples and wealthy singles have replaced the twenty-somethings, and the neighborhood, though still fashionable, has become somewhat more sedate and family-centered.
The block bordered by Willow, Armitage, Burling and Orchard has been called the most expensive in Chicago—and one of the priciest in the country. Here Chicago’s wealthiest families have bought up multiple lots to create stunning in-town estates. But lesser mortals can find a home in Lincoln Park as well.
