Chicago movers keep an “I” on Irving options

Moving to Chicago neighborhoods starting with letter I

Among the many northwest neighborhoods to live in Chicago are Irving Park and Irving Woods, both of which are named after “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” writer Washington Irving.

Located seven miles north of the Loop is Irving Park where residents can choose to move into a condo, townhouse and larger single-family home. Every morning, locals may energize themselves at Starbucks, Java Thai or Jazz It Cafe on Irving Park Road and unwind in the evening over schnitzels and beer at Mirabell Restaurant on Addison Street, fish and chips at Abbey Pub on Grace Street, or Italian options at Elston Avenue’s The Baked Tomato and Leona’s.

With California Park, Independence Park, Horner Park, Revere Park and McFetridge Sports Center, there’s no shortage of baseball, tennis, soccer and other athletic games. But if you’re idea of a sport is shopping, then check out the unique stores on Irving Park Road including Zeke’s Baseball Cards and Dog House of Beauty or find more mainstream items at Target on Addison Street.

For two days every summer, St. Benedict Parish on Irving Park Road hosts Benfest—an outdoor festival featuring live music, food and fun. Additional outdoor attractions await at Irving Woods, just 13 miles northwest of the Loop.

Bordering the Indian Boundary Golf Course and the Schiller Woods Forest Preserve, the suburban-like neighborhood is a great place to raise kids in well-kept bungalows and ranches, which typically come with garages, landscaped front lawns and private backyards. Irving Woods also offers a few condos, duplexes and townhouses for single residents, married couples, and smaller families.
