An Introduction to East Village Real Estate in Chicago, Illinois
At a reasonable population just under 7500 residents, East Village is a peaceful, humble neighborhood in the West Town district of Chicago, Illinois. Once a largely Eastern European neighborhood, East Village is now largely known for its youthful, creative population whose love of the relaxing, contemplative atmosphere of art galleries, architecture, and cafes outweighs the need for glamour or nightlife. East Village real estate is known for being affordable in comparison to nearby neighborhoods, as it has most begun to flourish in recent decades with the rise of independent art and business.
For those who desire the quieter side of the urban lifestyle, or for those seeking a neighborhood rich in immigrant history, East Village is likely to be the ideal Chicago neighborhood.
