Oh my, considering a Chicago move? Consider an O hood

Moving to Chicago neighborhoods starting with letter O

What’s old is new again, especially in Old Town—just one of the interesting Chicago neighborhoods that begin with the letter O. Located less than two miles north of the Loop, Old Town is a diverse district where you’ll see Victorian buildings next to the latest Starbucks. Home of the famed Second City comedy club and the Wells Street Art Festival, this historic and hip hood is packed with boutiques, bars, restaurants and more, making it one of the city’s most popular places to move. Pricey penthouses, rehabbed townhouses and vintage houses attract wealthy homebuyers while studios and small one-bedroom apartments are available for rent.

Another old Chicago neighborhood is Old Irving Park which features landmarks dating back to the 1800s. However more recent haunts dominate the family-friendly community that stands seven miles northwest of the Loop. Queen Annes, Victorians, Prairie homes, classic Chicago bungalows, courtyard condos and vintage apartments are among the area’s many housing options.

When it comes to fine architecture, travel five miles southwest of the Loop to Oakland which offers Romanesque and Classical Revival mansions and other homes at affordable prices. Additional deals can be found in O’Hare (the neighborhood, not the airport) which is 14 miles northwest of the Loop.

Near O’Hare you’ll find Oriole Park which features an 18-acre park with spray pool, fields for baseball, softball, football and soccer, plus courts for tennis and basketball, as well as a trail for running, biking, walking, and enjoying a bit of nature while still living in the city.
