Where to Live
Condominiums sit atop the neighborhood’s storefronts surrounding the main intersection of Milwaukee, Irving Park, and Cicero. Away from the main avenues, bungalows and two-story homes predominate, sitting on lots that are unusually large for city homes. Metra and CTA trains can be accessed just north of the area, where I-90 meets I-94.
Where to Eat
The Six Corners in Portage Park leans towards fast casual more than high-end fare, specializing in ethnic food but still offering Chicago mainstays. Asian restaurants sit next to Ecuadorian and Colombian establishments. For late-night grub, deep-dish pizza, hot dogs, and fast-food places are scattered along Milwaukee, Cicero, and Irving Park.
What You'll See
Portage Park has been a historically family-friendly neighborhood since the 1840's and not much has changed since then. Children often play on the deep front lawns and families can be seen visiting with neighbors. Shoppers still frequent the main intersection, though not in the numbers seen during the area’s commercial peak. Community leaders are hoping to change that, and several developments are in the works to attract more business.
Friday Night Fun
Start with a show at the neighborhood's historic Portage Theater, a neighborhood institution since 1920 that hosts concerts, film festivals, and special events. Live theater is also a popular option up the street at the Filament Theater. Venturing farther up Milwaukee Avenue, there are low-key taverns, unassuming dive bars, and even a resurgent brew pub scene. Irving Park also has it’s own selection of bars, specializing in live music.
The Perfect Sunday
Any of the cafes along Cicero and Irving Park Avenue are a great place to start your day. After brunch, check out the new exhibit at the National Veterans Art Museum, a neighborhood institution that features over 2,500 pieces of art created by veterans. Get your weekly shopping done at the historic Sears, a location that has been open since 1938 and was the first to be air conditioned. End the day by taking a stroll through Dickinson Park.
