Anchored by the Swedish American Museum and home to one of the city’s largest gay and lesbian communities, Andersonville is recognized for its diversity. With a quirky atmosphere and distinctive flavor, the area has quickly become one of the North Side’s most popular neighborhoods.
Distinctive to Andersonville is a lack of national chains. In fact, the neighborhood’s commercial district is made up almost entirely of independent, locally-owned businesses. Between its specialty bakeries, dynamic bar scene and incredible array of stylish boutiques, Andersonville is a thriving example of colorful urban living.
Andersonville real estate includes a mix of two- and three-flats, condo conversions and single-family homes. In addition, there are some fantastic Victorians in prime condition. The limestone work on dozens of walk-ups has been incredibly restored, and even a few gargoyles can be spotted peering out from the corners of 19th century buildings.
There’s a lot of newly constructed real estate in Andersonville, but a lot of the older homes have been renovated and fitted with upgrades, so residents get all the amenities of modern living alongside the old-school charm.

I’m often asked, “Who is your go-to handyman?" "Help, I need a plumber at 1am!" Where can I find a great home cook for my party?” "Where do I buy a fab bottle of bubbly for my special someone?" After 30 years in the business, I’ve gathered quite a list! That’s why I created my Little Black Book–a comprehensive, 80 page guide of my most trusted vendors, service providers, and partners in Chicago.
