Having a quaint village atmosphere right in the middle of the city is no easy task, but Roscoe Village pulls it off.
Defined by Roscoe Street, the neighborhood offers residents a mix of businesses, residences and parks just six miles northwest of Chicago’s downtown.
Roscoe Village is dominated by single-family homes with beautiful gardens. There are also classic three-story walkups and duplexes along with luxury new construction, which is giving the neighborhood a bit of a metropolitan feel.
City parks include the recently-renovated Fellger Playlot Park and offer neighbors playground equipment and grassy areas for picnics.
Roscoe Village is especially lively in the summer, when the community hosts Retro on Roscoe and the Roscoe Village Burger Fest. Getting there is easy with the CTA’s Brown Line, which has two stops in the neighborhood.
