Wicker Park Reviews
Review Wicker Park
In frank terms, Wicker Park is the Williamsburg Brooklyn of Chicago. Wicker Park is a great place to live whether you are a recent college graduate, young professional, or new family. The neighborhood is full of great restaurants, coffee shops, and nightlife. Stay in the Robey Hotel for a swanky experience in the heart of the neighborhood and grab a bite to eat at the newly opened Publican Anker across the street for one of the best burgers in town. After, check out Subterranean for a concert and dancing. Whatever you like to do, you can find it here in Wicker Park!
Wicker Park is a beautiful up and coming neighborhood. I lived there for two years right outside the intersection of Damen and Division. The night scene is one of the best in the city. Milwaukee looks like a carnival at 3 am on the weekends! Food is amazing, people are nice. The housing market is exploding too, the value of my aunts house has nearly doubled in the last 6 years. The crime is no different then any other popular area in the city. The "local homeless" guys are so nice, I even have friends I bring sandwiches.
Wicker Park is a unique gem of culture and community in the landscape of the greater Chicago area. It offers spaces that range from expensive to cheap, quiet to bustling, urban to natural and everything in between! Local businesses and historical architecture promote a one of a kind atmosphere that is unmistakeable and worth preserving.
