About Lincoln Park
Lincoln Park is located in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The name may be used to describe Lincoln Park as a community on the city’s north side; Lincoln Park, the park primarily within that community; or the zoo within the park’s southern area.
The Lincoln Park neighborhood is bordered on the north by Diversey Parkway, on the west by Clybourn Avenue, on the south by North Avenue, and on the east by the public park of the same name.
The neighborhood population is primarily made up of young professionals, recent college graduates, and young families. The neighborhood is also home to Lincoln Park High School, Francis W. Parker School, and DePaul University. Many students who attend these schools live in this neighborhood.
There are many boutiques, movie theaters, retail stores, restaurants and coffee shops. There are also many bars and clubs in the area, especially along Lincoln Avenue between Diversey and Armitage. Rent for studio apartments can range from $535-$900, and one-bedroom apartments start at $850 and skyrocket from there, depending on the view, size and location.
Lincoln Park, for which the neighborhood was named, stretches from Ardmore Avenue south to North Avenue. The park contains a zoo, an outdoor theatre, a rowing canal, the Peggy Notebart Nature Museum, ponds, playing fields, and a large statue of General Grant. The famed restaurant, North Pond, is also located in the park.
