"Bucktown/Wicker Park" Neighborhoods-other Tip by Birdbrain

Neighborhoods-other, Chicago: 50 reviews and 78 photos

This area (about four miles NW of downtown) is the artsy/hip area of town. I've never really figured out how to be 'hip' but if you're one of those people who likes to keep things 'real', hates those who 'sell out' or considers themselves a full-fledged Marxist, then this area is your Shangri-la. Even as out of place as I am among the natives, I like the 'vibe' in this part of town. There are a lot of ethnic places and 'funky' stores. I think that's enough 'apostrophes' for one review.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
