Living in Old Town
Originally, Old Town was known as “North Town.” That really is a testament to how old this community is when you realize that today the city has grown so much that what was formerly the north end of town is now part of central Chicago.
Today, this community is rife with boutiques, retailers, cafés, shopping, restaurants, and comedy clubs. A number of historic churches still stand from the city’s early days. There are many other fine examples of historic architecture as well.
Old Town is relatively small compared to many of Chicago’s other neighborhoods. The entire community is encapsulated within the 60610 ZIP code. Locals often define the boundaries of Old Town based on whether or not you can hear the bell of St. Michael’s Church toll. Despite this neighborhood’s size, this region of Chicago has no shortage of amenities. Wells Street is a popular commercial hub in the area.
This community is where you will find many of the comedy clubs in the city. Zanies is one of the oldest in the United States. The Second City is another popular club where many famous acts have performed.
Old Town is very close to the famous Lincoln Park, and residents often make use of the free zoo, walk-and-bike trails, and nature conservatory. In total, the park measures more than 1,000 acres. This well-loved Chicago neighborhood is also close to Lake Michigan where residents can take photographs of the waters and enjoy a sunny, summer day.
If you are a parent of elementary school-aged children, you will find that your child might attend one of the following schools that are in the area:
- Manierre Elementary School
- Franklin Elementary School
