Once home to livestock herders in the 19th century, Bucktown has undergone a dramatic transformation into a live-work community for artists and creatives. Although Bucktown's rural roots lie in the distant past, glimpses of the original neighborhood are evident through the many magnificent churches and parks that survived the Chicago Fire of 1871. Although commonly lumped together with Wicker Park, Bucktown sits slightly north - bordered by Western Avenue to the west, West Bloomingdale Avenue to the south and the Chicago River North Branch to the east. Together, these two submarkets are now a mainstream favorite among renters and homebuyers throughout the city, although they maintain much of their bohemian-like traditions.
Damen Avenue offers an eclectic mix of boutiques, consignments shops, big brands and luxury stores. Like Wicker Park, Bucktown maintains a creative vibe through independently-owned bookstores and local art galleries. Keeping a sense of community pride, Bucktown holds various festivals throughout the year, including the popular Bucktown Arts Fest where hundreds of artist, poets, musicians and performers showcase their latest work. With the opening of the 606 trail, an old railway converted into an elevated bikepath and walkway, Bucktown real estate is more enticing than ever before.
