Andersonville

Overview

For anyone who is searching for small town feel in a big city, Andersonville real estate offers a great starting point.  With a strong Swedish heritage that grew out of the great Chicago Fire and subsequent recruitment of skilled workers to help rebuild the city,

Running north along Clark, hints of the neighborhood start popping up as far south as Lawrence, and then come into full bloom as you near Foster Ave. and a series of shops, bars and restaurants.  What makes Andersonville so unique has been its commitment to the small, independent business.  While there may be a franchise or two that has slipped through the cracks, most of the businesses along Clark are run by local small business owners who live nearby.  This creates an incredible “we-built-this-together” vibe for the residents of this great Chicago neighborhood.

For the commuter, Andersonville is serviced by buses and the CTA Red Line with a series of stops just east of the neighborhood.  Getting to I-90/94 is a bit of a challenge, but Lake Shore Drive and the north end of Lincoln Park and Montrose Beach is a quick shot east.
