Known as “The Village Within the City,” Roscoe Village residents enjoy the best of both worlds with a comparatively quiet, small-town feel in the midst of popular North Side attractions. Bound by Addison Street to the north, Ravenswood Avenue to the east, Belmont Avenue to the south, and the Chicago River to the west, Roscoe Village is the perfect destination for laid-back fun and community engagement.
Roscoe Street, the charming, tree-lined thoroughfare, is chock-full of restaurants serving up global cooking, and dining al fresco is especially popular thanks to a picturesque street scene. Between meals, stop by a cute cafe or cozy tavern for some refreshment. Browse independent shops and find everything you need, all in easy walking distance. Small businesses thrive in Roscoe, but you can also appreciate the convenience of chain stores and grocers dotted throughout the area.
Roscoe Village residents take pride in their community, and there are plenty of fun ways to get to know your neighbors at festivals, farmers’ markets, group meets, parades, and volunteer opportunities. Retro on Roscoe is their biggest annual event, and this street festival is also a fundraiser that benefits the community through live music, food from local vendors, games and more.
All of this combined with fantastic schools, pretty parks along the riverside, and a variety of housing options make Roscoe Village a very desirable neighborhood, especially for families. Choose from a variety of single-family homes with old-world style, or opt for a repurposed factory-turned-condo or loft.
