If you’ve ever been to Wrigley Field you already know the surrounding area, aka Wrigleyville, is gorgeous, with thousands of Chicagoans choosing the area’s upscale townhouses. The Lakeview area — which contains Wrigleyville, Boystown, and several other neighborhoods — runs along Lake Michigan, just north of the Lincoln Park neighborhood. A portion of the sprawling 1,200-acre Lincoln Park is within Lakeview territory, making it easy for residents to hop on the Lakefront Trail for a walk, jog, or picnic along the scenic park. Lakeview also overlaps with Boystown, an LGBTQ district known for its nightlife, and the rest of the neighborhood isn’t much different — shopping, arts, culture, and summer street festivals keep the area consistently lively. Lakeview apartments and rentals, though not much cheaper than Downtown, offer a bit more breathing room and many are in beautifully renovated older buildings that have kept their character.
If you're not sure how much an apartment will cost, the table below shows the average price by size.
