Lincoln Square is a unique and vibrant community in Chicago’s north side that attracts visitors and residents by blending old-world charm with modern tastes and trends. Nestled along the Chicago River’s North Branch to the west, Lincoln Square is bordered by Montrose Avenue to the south, Ravenswood Avenue to the east, and Peterson Avenue to the north. At its heart is the charming town center of its namesake, which includes a cobblestone pedestrian street full of enticing destinations for dining, shopping, and entertainment. Lincoln Square is a welcoming, close-knit community known for celebrating the international cultures and time-honored traditions that make it so special.
The bustling town center is balanced with quiet, tree-lined streets largely consisting of 2- and 3-flat condos and single-family homes. Some new construction is tastefully mixed in with the characterful vintage buildings, so there are options to suit the wide variety of people attracted to Lincoln Square; everyone from students and young professionals to families and retired folks enjoy calling this place home.
