Trendy, metropolitan, and modern, River North is one of the most vibrant and artistically active neighborhoods of Chicago. Once a manufacturing district, the 70s and 80s changed the face of River North forever, bringing an influx of bohemian creatives and ambitious entrepreneurs who would transform industrial spaces into creative and productive small businesses, restaurants, and studios. These features remain to this day, joined now by art and design galleries, fine dining, and incredible cafes. A population of about 20,000 people gives it a lively but uncrowded feel, and River North’s real estate has, in recent decades, been some of the most valuable around. All in all, River North is a dream neighborhood for those who seek the iconic urban life, surrounded by creativity, thriving, and ambition.
Activities in River North
River North is contained in the greater community of “Near North Side,” which boasts such famous tourist locations as Navy Pier, Gold Coast, and the Magnificent Mile. Locals can take full advantage of these always-lively locations, or they can explore the many quieter locations River North contains.
River North is famous for fine dining and drinks, with restaurants such as Baptiste & Bottle offering fine bourbons alongside beautiful dishes. Additionally, with River North having a strong Sicilian history, the availability of Sicilian and Italian food is unmatched. One such example, a concept restaurant known as Siena Tavern, is headed by a fan favorite Top Chef contender who specializes in creating food inspired by the Italian small tavern.
River North boasts incredible offerings for those who are fascinated by art or architecture. Multiple cathedrals dot the neighborhood alongside public art exhibits like “Crossing,” a piece designed to illustrate the delicate balance of the cultural and the commercial in the area. River North is also home to a number of art galleries, not the least of which is the Poetry Foundation on West Superior Street.
The nightlife is another characteristic that makes River North real estate so desirable; not only can locals enjoy the contemplative side of life through the arts, but they can enjoy the wild side as well.
Schools and Transportation
River North real estate is well connected to the rest of Chicago; two above-ground stations and two below-ground stations run within the neighborhood limits, allowing for transportation from major hubs.
River North is very close to a number of brilliantly-rated public and private schools including the William B Ogden International School, which was built less than ten years ago and offers a modern, high-tech campus. Schools offering college preparatory curriculum are available in the area, allowing students attending local high schools the ability to get a head start not available to many students in other cities. Most schools in the area are easily accessible by school bus or by train. With the aforementioned stations in River North, getting to school is never a problem, even if bussing doesn’t work within a particular family’s schedule.
