Chicago’s Albany Park neighborhood boasts diversity from both the cultural and real estate standpoint. It is one of the most ethnically diverse places to live in the United States–over 40 different languages are spoken in its public schools! It is also home to the “Koreatown” of Chicago.
Real Estate housing options vary from brick multi-unit courtyard buildings near the Kimball and Lawrence ‘El’ (elevated train) hub to elegant two- and three-flats on the outskirts of the neighborhood. The western streets of the neighborhood are dotted with sturdy brick bungalows that evoke a rare brand of vintage charm. You’ll get a ton of value for your money here–for instance, a quaint frame two-flat in Albany Park can be had for $375,000–about the same price one would pay for a two bedroom condo in other popular north side neighborhoods.
