Bucktown Real Estate Market Overview

City dwellers looking for a slightly more relaxed vibe without sacrificing proximity retreat just to the north of Wicker Park for the calmer, more sophisticated haven known as Bucktown. Tree-lined streets accent beautiful homes, and cozy neighborhood bars like Danny's and The Charleston have been around for decades. Damen Avenue, with its boutiques and farm-to-table restaurants, runs along the eastern border, wh...ile main thoroughfare Western Ave lines Bucktown to the west with convenient access to I-94 for commuters. But Bucktown is best when taken in slowly and leisurely, like a Chicago summer's day.View more
