Rogers Park is a worldly, artsy community with a vibe all its own.
Located on the northern edge of the city just south of Evanston, Rogers Park is home to Loyola University. Students and long-time residents alike love the neighborhood’s diversity with legendary restaurants and shops that highlight cultures from the Middle East, Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, Eastern Europe and more. Devon Avenue is considered to be the main South Asian shopping district in Chicago.
Rogers Park’s lively scene has popular dive bars, local restaurants and coffee shops catering to Loyola students and locals alike. With more than 30 parks and beaches, there’s always plenty to do here. The neighborhood’s artsy side is evident in Miles of Murals, an initiative featuring 14,000 square feet of commissioned art including block-long pieces, viaducts and an overpass.
The neighborhood is divided into east and west sections and includes smaller pocket neighborhoods such as Peterson Park. Loyola University and the lakefront are focal points on the east, while West Rogers Park includes larger single-family homes and a number of city parks.
Homebuyers can find a variety of housing styles including vintage walkups, new construction, and block after block of classic Chicago bungalows. Downtown Chicago is easily accessible via public transportation including the CTA’s Purple and Red lines.
