Chicago’s northernmost neighborhood, East Rogers Park, is bounded by the City of Evanston on the north and Lake Michigan to the east. Newcomers to the community can choose from a variety of residential real estate options, including rehabbed apartments converted to condominiums, low-rise two- and three-flats and many spacious vintage single-family homes.
Lake Michigan is one of the keys to the neighborhood’s unique lifestyle. East Rogers Park boasts wonderful views of Lake Michigan thanks to a ban on high-rise buildings along the lakeshore. Even more important are the recreational activities provided by the community’s eight sunny and sandy beaches and beachfront activities that include swimming, boating and just relaxing on the beach. Other facilities include basketball and tennis courts and the open spaces of more than 30 parks that grace the neighborhood. East Rogers Park is also home to the Lakeshore Campus of Chicago’s Loyola University, enabling all residents to share in the energy, ambience and educational and cultural activities offered by a major university.
East Rogers Park also has strong business, shopping and entertainment areas that offer an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops, galleries, pubs, coffee shops and entertainment venues. Residents are also only minutes away from the popular commercial districts of neighboring Andersonville and Edgewater.
