Rogers Park Neighborhood Overview

Spanning the lakefront roughly from Devon Avenue to Howard Street, Rogers Park has the distinction of being the city's northernmost neighborhood. This distance from downtown may play a hand in why many local haunts have that under-the-radar appeal. But easy accessibility by way of multiple train stops means that the unique dining, arts, culture and entertainment found in Rogers Park are never too far away. And the sound of waves crashing along the shores is near as well, as nearly all the streets leading you east end at public beaches and parkland on Lake Michigan.

Whats around

Bright, fresh murals and newly-updated ‘L' stations add to the experience while commercial districts along Howard Street and Clark Street, in the Glenwood Avenue Arts District and Jarvis Square tout a robust theater scene and lively music clubs, as well as galleries and studios, coffee shops and late-night dive bars. And just as the student population coexists with long-standing residents and more recent immigrant arrivals, the mix of ethnic eateries is a blend of many different backgrounds: Jamaica, Mexico, Belize, Peru, Ethiopia, Korea, Italy, India and the Middle East, among others, are all represented.

Public transit

It’s hard to deny you are pretty far out of the way up here, but four Red Line stops and the option to grab the express Purple Line at Howard help.
