Homes for Sale

Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

The neighborhood's main thoroughfare is 63rd Street; here, you'll find a sprinkling of spacious rentals for one or more residents. Another place to check out is the area surrounding Lawler Park known as Chrysler Village. Its single-family homes, townhouses, and duplexes once housed the factory workers who worked at the Chrysler Defense Plant during World War II. Clearly sturdy, these historic structures still stand -- and house the city's workers -- today.

Where to Eat

There are two places to look if you're hungry and in Clearing. The first would be 63rd Street, which cuts horizontally through the neighborhood. You might also have some luck on Cicero Avenue on the neighborhood's east side. As for the type of fare you'll find, there's plenty of variety: Mexican, deli sandwiches, brunch, burgers, and, of course, hot dogs and pizza. It's still Chicago, after all.

What You'll See

Midway International Airport brings plenty of activity to Clearing. Whether it's cars driving to the airport or planes flying overhead, don't expect this far-from-downtown neighborhood to be more peaceful than the city's epicenter. You will, however, see locals walking with their kids to Little League games in Lawler Park (more on that later) when weather permits outdoor play.

Friday Night Fun

Just as eclectic as its restaurants are Clearing's bars. One night, you might grab a glass of vodka and a pierogi tapa at an authentic Polish bar. Another evening could bring you to an Irish pub, where bartenders pride themselves on pouring a picture-perfect pint of Guinness. If you want something a little bit ritzier, grab an Orange Line train or taxi to the center.

The Perfect Sunday

It wouldn't be a city Sunday without brunch, and even this family neighborhood has plenty of breakfast selections. A fluffy omelet or stack of pancakes will fuel you up for an afternoon chasing the kids at Lawler Park as they dig through sandboxes or play a game of baseball. Hale Park, on the other hand, might suit adults a bit more, thanks to its pool and ball fields.
