Where to Live
Morgan Park's original homeowners moved to the area hoping to spread out and enjoy a less crowded way of life than what was found downtown. They built large, single-family homes, many of which still stand today in their original forms. Victorian-style estates with wraparound porches can be found in Morgan Park as well as cozier bungalows and cottages. Buyers hoping to live near public transportation should look near the Metra rail, which runs through the center of the neighborhood.
What You'll See
With its location on the edge of the city limits, Morgan Park feels more suburban than urban. Well-kept lawns, clean sidewalks, and plenty of street parking can be found in this largely residential neighborhood. The neighborhood has great schools, including Morgan Park Academy, as well as a large shopping district. Much of the neighborhood’s historic architecture has been preserved. Early residents often ordered their Victorian-style homes by mail and many current residents have dedicated themselves to maintaining the character of these charming abodes.
Where to Eat
Western Avenue, a major thoroughfare, runs right through Morgan Park's western side and is home to many restaurants. You can eat well here and easily access the eateries that nearby neighborhoods have to offer. Deep-dish pizza, hearty sandwiches, BBQ, and burgers are the staples of this area.
Friday Night Fun
People flock to Morgan Park to check out what's happening at the Beverly Arts Center, a revered neighborhood institution. A 400-seat theater hosts intimate concerts and plays as well as classes in the arts. If nothing's happening there, residents can pay a visit to any of the bars and lounges lining Western Avenue.
The Perfect Sunday
In March, Morgan Park hosts one of the city's most famous events — the South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade. On any other weekend, you might boutique-hop on Western Avenue, sample brews from a local brewery, or stroll through Prospect Gardens Park.
