F is for Finding a Chicago Neighborhood

Moving to Chicago neighborhoods starting with letter F

There are plenty of historic places to live in Chicago—from Fifth City to Fulton River District, and that’s just the sections that start with F. Yet before you can move to one of these neighborhoods, you need to learn a little about them.

Named for Chicagoan Melville Fuller, who was a U.S. Chief Justice from 1888 to 1910, Fuller Park features affordable homes and 19th century buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire. From fixer-uppers to renovated residences, this south-side neighborhood can suit any budget. Choose from vacant lots, single family homes, newer condos, vintage row townhouses and half-duplexes.

Classic bungalows, brick ranches, quaint cottages, plus English Tudor and Georgian-style homes make up the character of Forest Glen, which rests near forest preserves and the north branch of the Chicago River.

From rehabbed graystone and half-duplexes to newly-constructed townhouses and condos, Fifth City features a wide variety of housing at reasonable costs. Located within East Garfield Park, this west side community may be small yet it is filled with big possibilities since it boasts spacious lots, affordable housing, and close proximity to downtown.

The hip and historic Fulton River District includes residential building alongside clubs, pubs, and restaurants. The area is very popular thanks to the Fulton River District Association which generates a thriving community with condos, townhouses, and upgraded graystone mansions.

Whether renting a studio, rehabbing a house or moving into a newly-constructed townhome, there’s a Chicago residence for anyone just as Golan’s Chicago Moving Companies can help with any move—be it across town, across the country, or even across the ocean.
