An upscale and very desirable residential Chicago neighborhood that boasts restaurants of every cuisine, a lively theater district, blues and dance clubs, and plentiful shopping, Lincoln Park is bounded by Diversey Parkway on the north, on the west by Clybourn Avenue, on the south by North Avenue, and on the east by Lincoln Park, the public park for which the neighborhood was named.

Lincoln Park covers six square miles and has a population of 64,320 (2000).
There are a variety of housing options from which to choose.

Housing is very expensive in the area, much more so than in many areas of the city south and north of Lincoln Park.
