Albany Park is a diverse community in one of Chicago real estate's most convenient locations, equidistant from the Loop and O'Hare International Airport. Home to a growing population and situated along the Chicago River, Albany Park boasts picturesque parks with beautiful river views and a wealth of water-oriented activities such as boating and fishing. The neighborhood's quiet streets are lined with a myriad of vintage single-family homes in a wide range of architectural styles, plus new and rehabbed condos and apartments that range from two-flats to charming courtyard buildings. Albany Park also features a well-established commercial area that contains a varied, vibrant mix of independent shops, markets and restaurants.
Located within the broader community of Albany Park are two historic neighborhoods. Mayfair offers virtually an entire neighborhood of architecturally significant homes including traditional Chicago bungalows plus a number of larger homes and estates that are some of the premium properties in the city. It also offers excellent shopping and dining establishments, and spacious parks including the beautiful Gompers Park in North Mayfair. A small jewel of a neighborhood along the Chicago River, Ravenswood Manor is a quiet residential community of well-kept Victorian and Prairie-style single-family homes, rowhouses and converted vintage multi-unit buildings. The area borders on Lincoln Square, offering proximity to a vital commercial district with a large and eclectic mix of unique restaurants and shops.
