G…Why not move to a neighborhoods with nature

Moving to Chicago neighborhoods starting with letter G

Although Chicago is a major city with all the urban amenities anyone could want, the city also provides outdoor festivals, parks, beaches and a conservatory so tourists and residents alike can stop and smell the roses—especially in the neighborhoods that begin with the letter G.

Located near the Loop, Gresham is one of the city’s many up-and-coming areas. Not only does it offer affordable housing options to first-time buyers and investors, it houses the historic Auburn Park which dates back to the 1800s as well as newer recreation and resting options at Dawes Park and O’Hallaren Park.

One of the city’s most desirable sections is the Gold Coast where Romanesque townhouses, Georgian manors and stylish penthouse suites overlook Lake Michigan’s shoreline and Oak Street Beach. In addition to urban amenities such as restaurants, pubs, theaters, and close proximity to the Loop, the neighborhood hosts outdoor events such as the Dearborn Garden Walk and Heritage Festival as well as the Gold Coast River North Art Fair every year.

Palm trees in Chicago? It sounds surreal but it’s a reality at Garfield Park Conservatory in East Garfield Park. In addition to the conservatory’s flowers, plants and trees, the neighborhood offers organic outdoor markets as well as close proximity to the Loop, historic architecture, a rich heritage and vibrant resurgence. In nearby West Garfield Park, first-time homebuyers will love the area’s green parks, good schools and affordable housing.

There are many famous residents resting at Graceland—however they are buried at Graceland Cemetery from which the neighborhood gets its name. Designed by O.C. Simonds and built in 1860, the graveyard’s greenery lends serenity to the urban area near Wrigleyfield, where living inhabitants appreciate the historic charm of Victorian houses which are available for purchase or for rent.

Plenty of well kept post World War II bungalows await new residents in Garfield Ridge. Located near Midway Airport, it’s no surprise the family-friendly neighborhood is home to many aviation workers and working-class citizens who benefit from the area businesses, bountiful parks, and convenient public transportation options.
