Enjoy a relaxing walk through the south Lincoln Park neighborhood, winding our way up and down some of the most expensive blocks in the United States, learning the stories behind some of iconic Chicago homes . I'll share the history of the neighborhood and Chicago in general, and explain how Lincoln Park went from the location of a single slaughterhouse to one of the most coveted neighborhoods to live in. I'll dive in to the architectural styles and designs of seven unique homes (spoiler alert: the owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers lives in one of them), interesting facts about the properties, and the stories of of the people who live in them. Along the way, we will pass through local parks (likely filled with plenty of dogs), and quaint streets lined with local shops and restaurants (I'll be sure to point out some of my favorites along the way). This is your chance to get outside of the Loop, and experience the best neighborhood in the city.
I say Chicago, and you think the Bean, the Magnificent Mile and the Loop (and likely quite a bit of deep dish pizza.) But Chicago is so much more - it's a collection of neighborhoods. I am here to show you my own neighborhood - Lincoln Park, and specifically the multi-million dollar, jaw-dropping row homes in the area. I have spent countless hours learning about the neighborhood, and the stunning homes that line the picturesque, tree-lined streets, as well as the stories of the people who live in them. I’d love to share them with you.
We will meet at the Armitage "L" station, and take a ~1-1.5 mile walk through the streets of Lincoln Park. We will pass one of the most expensive homes in the city - a $50 million, 25,000 sq. ft. home, as well as a variety of stunning brownstones and contemporary homes. I'll talk about the history of the neighborhood, point out the local bars and restaurants, and share my own personal experience of living here.
