Lakeview is located on the city’s North Side. It is bordered by West Diversey Parkway on the south, West Irving Park Road on the north, North Ravenswood Avenue on the west, and Lake Michigan on the east. It is easily one of Chicago’s liveliest and most accessible neighborhoods. Lakeview is unofficially divided into smaller neighborhood enclaves: Lakeview East, Southport Corridor, West Lakeview including Roscoe Village, Boystown and Wrigleyville.
Lakeview is home to a bevy of restaurants, shops, parks, music venues, theaters and of course, Wrigley Field. Each small neighborhood within Lakeview has its own feel and history unique to that area making it a diverse place to live.
