LAKEVIEW IS ONE OF THE LARGEST COMMUNITY AREAS IN CHICAGO.

It encompasses the vibrant North Side neighborhoods of Wrigleyville, Lincoln Park, and Boystown. The Lakeview Community Association works hard to keep the area in tiptop condition by advocating for it with the city. It was founded in 1996 and has been active in historic preservation and traffic issues, among other civic endeavors.

The Lakeview neighborhood has a reputation for being family-like. There are many stores and shops that make up this neighborhood. There's also a dog park and many dog friendly restaurants! Lakeview has great views of the skyline, the lakefront and the beach and it has access to everything you need.
