North Park


 
  

Neighborhood Description

A family-friendly and "academically active" neighborhood, North Park was "originally a Swedish community and later a stronghold of Orthodox Jews" that has been "adopted by newer American immigrants, from Latinos to Middle Easterners, Koreans and Eastern Europeans" in recent decades. Home to two universities, North Park and Northeastern Illinois, the city's only waterfall (at the confluence of the North Branch of the Chicago River and the North Shore Channel), tree-lined streets packed with single-family homes, a large nature center, good transportation connections, and a diverse array of restaurant options, North Park has a little something for everyone.
