West De Paul Real Estate

West DePaul is a vibrant micro-neighborhood, which is part of the much larger and beloved Lincoln Park neighborhood.  This pleasant neighborhood is replete with low-rise tree­-lined residential streets, lined with picture-perfect greystones and walk­-ups.

Public transportation is easy: Red and Brown Line trains run north-south through Lincoln Park. There are also many buses, which traverse the neighborhood, including the Clark 22, Broadway 36, Diversey, Fullerton, North, Halsted buses

Perfect for those who want easy access to the loop via mass transit, a more residential feel than the Loop, a better price point than River North or Old Town, and a more casual vibe than the Gold Coast.

Theater aficionados can take in a play at the critically acclaimed Steppenwolf or Apollo. Foodies can walk to Michelin Three­ Star gastro­science mecca, Alinea, and countless other tasty delights. Neighborhood fixture DePaul University has noteworthy lectures, sporting events, and a remarkable new art museum open to the public. In addition to its numerous athletic facilities, Lincoln Park is home to the free Lincoln Park Zoo, the Lincoln Park Conservatory, numerous monuments and public art works, and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
