Learn more about Lakeview, Chicago

It is bordered by Diversey Parkway on the south, Irving Park Road on the north, Ravenswood Avenue on the west, and the shore of Lake Michigan on the east.

Lakeview is one of the most densely populated neighborhoods with more than 94,000 residents.

Lake View is divided into smaller ‘sub’ neighborhoods: Lakeview East, West Lakeview and Wrigleyville, which is home to Wrigley Field.

In 2013, Money Magazine determined Lakeview as number 3 of its top 10 big-city neighborhoods for its selection of ‘Best Places to Live’ in the country edition.

Iconic comedian Charlie Chaplin lived at the Brewster Apartments at the intersection of Diversey and Pine Grove when he was filming movies with Essanay Studios in 1915.

Lake View was used by the Miami, Ottawa, and Winnebago Native American tribes. In 1837, Conrad Sulzer of Switzerland became the first white settler to live in the area. In 1853, one of the first permanent structures was built by James Rees and Elisha Hundley on the corner where present-day West Byron Street meets North Lake Shore Drive. The building was called the Hotel Lake View, homage to the hotel's unobstructed view of Lake Michigan.

In the part of Lincoln Park adjacent to Lake Michigan in Lakeview, there is a totem pole of Kwanusila, the Thunderbird of the Kwagu'? First Nations tribe. It is visible from Lake Shore Drive.

Lakeview is home to the Temple Sholom at Lake Shore Drive and Cornelia Avenue. It is a historic Jewish place of worship.

The Lakeview Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is in southeastern Lake View and known for its stunning architecture.
