Rating 3.97 out of 5 58 reviews
Affordable housing and a great neighborhood for students, professionals, and families. There are also many local restaurants.
During the time that I have lived in Wicker Park, I have always felt a sense of belonging. When I walk out the door, I am always anticipating the type of interactions that I will have with neighbors around me and visitors passing through. I have had the opportunity to walk through this area with having over a foot of snow outside. I hope once the vaccine is more widely available, I can explore the rest of the options that the community offers within this great city. I also hope to be more involved in community initiatives and programs surrounding me to help better the area.
Wicker Park is a rapidly changing neighborhood in Central/Northwest Chicago, as part of the larger West Town area. Great for young families, Wicker Park is filled with fun bars, coffee shops, and restaurants. Wicker Park also boasts niche shops and thrift stores that are a hoot to explore. Gentrification is an issue, and the community is struggling a bit with a solution to this troubling problem as longtime residents are slowly being pushed out.
Its a very neighborhood for families and friends. Its a lot to do around here. You could walk walk your dog, go on jog, shop ect. Its very safe for everyone. Good place to raise children. Fun things happen around here like festivels. The present day neighborhood is best known for its numerous commercial and entertainment establishments, and being a convenient place to live for downtown workers due to its proximity to public transportation and The Loop.
Great area to walk and bike. I feel safe walking at most hours, there is a lifely nightlife, many good restaurants, and it pretty easy to commute anywhere by CTA. Many local organic grocery stores and coops, lots of options for healthy eating.
Wicker Park is great for young people and young professionals. There are great bars and restaurants to walk to and even a dog park!
People socialize. People do many different things. Everyone is seemingly a hipster with a niche for fighting slightly confusing causes.
I like wicker park because it has many sides to offer a wide range of people. It has apartment buildings and fancy condos. Bars and hole in wall restaurants to fine dining. Traffic is horrible!
Best neighborhood in Chicago. Great food, great outdoor spaces. Easy commute downtown and plenty of things to do.
Wicker Park is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Chicago. It sits conveniently between Logan Square, Lincoln Park, Humboldt Park, & Ukrainian Village, making it a prime location for easy access to other fabulous parts of the city. It's bustling with creative individuals, unique art, amazing food, & stunning architecture. Visit The Robey Hotel to take in some of the most jaw-dropping 360 degree views that Chicago has to offer. Go to Wicker Park & have a world of cuisines at my fingertips (with great atmospheres to boot). Enjoy flavorful Middle Eastern food at Sultan's Market, fresh sushi at Enso, delicious tacos at Big Star, hearty Ramen at Furious Spoon, or one of the best burgers in town (or the country) at Mindy's Hot Chocolate. Spend the day in Wicker Park to shop, gallery hop, dance to live music, play some pool, or sip craft cocktails on a patio. It's a treasure-trove of a neighborhood with so much to offer, making it one of Chicago's best.
Wicker park is a great neighborhood for young urban professionals. The nightlife, food, and accessibility to trains and the airport make it a very appealing place to live.
Great place to live, or visit. It has tons of shops and restaurants, and is just a 10 minute train ride from downtown.

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.
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.
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!
It's a safe neighborhood. A love be surrounded with tons of restaurant . People are friendly. A lot family with dogs and children
