Then and Now
Like much of Chicago, West Rogers Park was once swampy terrain with thriving Native American culture. Trails from local tribes, like the Chippewa and the Ottawa, wound through the early bog prairie. Among the early non-native settlers was Philip Rogers, who traded with the resident Native Americans. Ultimately Rogers purchased the deed to 1,600 acres of land from the United States government, which his children eventually helped to develop. Before long, stagecoach routes intertwined with Native American trails and folks began to take notice of the area established by Rogers and his family.
In 1893, West Rogers Park was annexed into Chicago. It remained a small neighborhood of only about 500, mostly non-native residents until about 1900 when a flood of immigrants sought affordable housing and found West Rogers Park fit the bill. Over the past century, West Rogers Park has become a central location of diversity. It holds the city's largest Orthodox Jewish, Indian, and Pakistani populations -- in addition to a booming number of people with Russian, Polish, and Caribbean heritage. Over 80 languages are spoken in West Rogers Park and there is a vast culture rich in diversity.
This north side community has built its upper-middle class economic success on a melting pot of residents. In fact, Devon Avenue has become the "Little India" of Chicago. It boasts dozens of Pakistani and Indian shops. Plus, West Rogers Park neighborhood contains the largest contingent of social, entertainment, and kosher resources for Jewish residents in Chicago. The frenetic energy of Devon Avenue and the ethnic diversity of residents make West Rogers Park one of the most interesting and appealing cultural centers in Chicago.

Within its less than three square miles, West Rogers Park has an abundance of inland recreational areas that provide residents of this north side Chicago neighborhood with a wide variety of landscapes, activities and room to stretch the legs.
Lerner Park (7000 N Sacramento Ave, 312-742-7529) is situated on 8 acres of lightly wooded land less than 2 miles away from the lakefront. Lerner was purchased by the city of Chicago in 1962 from the Illinois Brick Company. The Chicago Park District quickly turned the dried out clay pit into luscious parkland with plenty of room for baseball and tennis. Less than three blocks south sits Chippewa Park (6748 N Sacramento, 773-761-0380). Chippewa was named after one of the many Native American tribes that used to dominant the region. Established in 1896, Chippewa is one of Chicago's oldest parks with continual weekly programming and plenty of walking trails.
Moving on to slightly larger open green spaces, Rogers School Park (7345 N Washtenaw Ave, 312-742-7859) sits on 13 acres of activity-rich property. Indoors, there's an auditorium and meeting room for both community get-togethers and small theatrical productions. For recreation, you'll find baseball diamonds, tennis courts, walking trails, a gym, and programs that range from day camp to adult interest. Perhaps, our favorite West Rogers Park commons is Indian Boundary Park and Cultural Center (2500 W Lunt Ave, 312-742-7887). The fantastic Tudor-style fieldhouse, designed by Clarence Hatzfeld to incorporate Native American elements was given historical landmark status in 2005. After you've had a chance to appreciate the fieldhouse's architectural dimensions, take a stroll by the duck-filled lagoon, or visit the miniature zoo to take pictures of the cows, llamas, deer, sheep, and other animals. This West Rogers Park sanctuary also houses tennis courts, baseball fields and a recital stage. Activities for both children and adults are scheduled on a daily basis during the summer, with limited programming during the winter months.
All these great outdoor refuges and we still haven't gotten to the biggest park in the neighborhood. Well, that would be Warren Park (6601 N Western Ave, 773-262-6314). Warren Park encompasses nearly 90 acres of Chicago city land for forest preserve and community space. Created in the 1970s by grassroots campaigning, Warren Park has a little something for everybody. We love to watch the racing activity in the skate park where launches, half-pipes and rails provide hours of fun for both skateboarders and inline skaters. Warren Park also has batting cages, a nine-hole golf course in the northeast corner, and racquetball courts. In the winter, an ice rink that doubles as a hockey rink keeps West Rogers Park residents -- and other Chicagoans -- slipping and sliding into frosty fun.

West Rogers Park is where middle- to upper-class living meets old Chicago aristocracy. Historic mansions line the tree-shaded streets of both Lunt and Ridge avenues. This fashionable architecture is dispersed through the neighborhood as elegant, yet affordable single-family homes in Georgian, Ranch, Bungalow, and Victorian layouts. Stately brick buildings, lush foliage, and an appreciation of past architectural victories greet the eyes at every turn.
The residential areas of West Rogers Park are dominated by single-family homes, but also contain a limited number of large condominium complexes and many quainter two- and three-flat buildings. In recent years, the hidden glory of West Rogers Park has been discovered by Chicagoans and a resurgence of new, classically designed projects and the rehabilitation of the 50-year-old existing bungalows and other houses are under way. This current wave of construction provides residents with spacious interiors and bonus design elements such as open layouts and high ceilings, and an emphasis on natural light.
Generally, the average sales price for a one-bedroom condo or attached housing unit in West Rogers Park neighborhood is about $142,000 but you can effortlessly find one for less than $150,000. Two-bedroom places average in the low $200,000s, and a three-bedroom typically costs around $270,000 on average. Detached single-family homes start at $300,000 (for a two-bedroom) and average in the low $400,000s for a little more space. The average sale price for larger homes -- say with four or five bedrooms -- is around $470,000 in this north side Chicago neighborhood.
What's on the Menu?
West Rogers Park is a Chicago mecca of ethnic restaurant delights where there truly is something for everybody, from fine dining to a quick bite.
West Rogers Park is one of the best neighborhoods in Chicago to experience the tasty treats of specialty bakeries. King Sweets (2308 W Devon Ave, 773-262-8001) is a family owned Pakistani sweets shop that also has daily lunch and dinner specials for something a little more substantial. But back to the sweet stuff -- their bakery cases have so much to choose from it's like a bake-goods bonanza! The delectable selection includes cashew fudge, pistachio halwa, and über-tasty mithai confections -- which makes it hard to stick to our diets. But don't worry too much about that diet, because King Sweets also has sugar-free and non-dairy options, and fruit-yogurt shakes made from freshly squeezed juices and produce. Tahoora Sweets and Bakery (2345 W Devon Ave, 773-743-7272) moved to its current, and larger, location in 2005. The extra room was definitely needed to hold all the delicious confectionary delights coming out of this West Rogers Park kitchen! The pistachio katli (made from cashews, sugar, and other tasty ingredients) is particularly amazing, but the chocolate sandwiches, Bengali cream gulab jamun, and cashew cookies are all equally as fantastic. And nevermind if you're not sure about the names, everything in this place is absolutely scrumptious -- so just point to something and give it a try, you won't be disappointed. J.R. Dessert Bakery (2841 W Howard St, 773-465-6733) is one of Chicago's unrivaled bakeries with a specialty in cheesecakes. J.R.'s cheesecakes are made from 100 percent all-natural ingredients and come in traditional or less conventional flavors. And we love how the seasons influence the tastes of this shop. The egg nog cheesecake is a perfect addition to any winter party menu, but there's still a tie between the pecan caramel and amaretto cheesecakes for our all-time favorite.
The stretch of Devon Avenue known as "Little India" is rich with Indian, Pakistani, Bangladesh, Thai, and Croatian culture, as evidenced through the restaurants. In 2006, the famous Zagats dining survey rated Hema's Kitchen (6406 N Oakley Ave, 773-338-1627) one of the best Indian restaurants in Chicago along with the same notation by WTTW Chicago's popular TV show Check Please. When we go to Hema's we always start off with the vegetable samosas, a flaky pastry stuffed with potatoes, green peas, and coriander leaves. Hema's has great vegetarian entrees, too, like the aloo palak, which is a tasty spinach and potato concoction in a light gravy. For meat-eaters, there are fabulous lamb and chicken dishes like gobi gosht -- oh-so-tenderly cooked lamb with cauliflower and roasted spices. Mysore Woodlands (2548 W Devon Ave, 773-338-8160) impresses the gastronomic set with an all-vegetarian menu that will satisfy even the most die-hard carnivores. Each dinner special is affordable and serves up enough food for leftovers! Our favorites here are the dosas, South Indian-style crepes that can be made with potatoes, garlic, and chutney usually served for breakfast, and perfect for brunch when Mysore opens. Indian Garden (2546 W Devon Ave, 773-338-2929) has one of the best vegetarian-friendly buffets on Devon Avenue, seven days a week. An order from the menu will award you with enormous portion sizes -- great for warming up for lunch at the office the next day. This neighborhood eatery's North India cuisine has a fair amount of kick to it with the industrious use of cumin, garlic, ginger, and other spices. Rich with ambience, the shattered tile walls and earth tones decor make Indian Garden a popular sit-down joint for West Rogers Park locals. Tiffin (2536 W Devon Ave, 773-338-2143) is Devon Avenue's most sought-after Indian restaurant/lounge experience. The chicken and lamb biryani (think stir-fry, but instead of noodles, there is rice) are top-notch menu choices for meat-eaters and the malai kofta (meatless meatballs) are ideal for the vegetarian at the table. We think Tiffin is the perfect place to dine on Devon Avenue for an upscale evening without breaking the bank.
If you're craving just a plain old hot dog or maybe a quick egg roll, West Rogers Park neighborhood offers popular dining spots for you, too. U Lucky Dawg (6821 N Western Ave, 773-274-3652) has everything from turkey burgers to one of the best soaked Italian beef sandwiches in Chicago. Meanwhile, the Philippines influenced Mom's Bake Shoppe and Restaurant (2415 W Peterson Ave, 773-784-1318) has an amazing kari-kari (beef stew) and a whole refrigerated case full of leche flan (a sweet, caramel flavored jello-like dessert), halo-halo (shaved ice with various flavors), and ensemada (circularly coiled cakes).

Best Shopping Stops
West Rogers Park is an up-and-coming Chicago neighborhood that ignores shopping trends and stays true to its cultural traditions. The main hot shops are situated along Devon Avenue and are specialty, ethnic-centric boutiques. Meandering down Devon Avenue, you'll find clothes and jewelry not available anywhere else in Chicago.
India Sari Palace (2534 W Devon Ave, 773-338-2127) specializes in religious icons like Ganesh and a rainbow of exotic cloth for designing your own sari. If you don't have the time to sew, fabulous ready-made pieces are for sale. The Chandni Boutique (2503 W Devon Ave, 773-381-5400) features handmade Indian and Pakistani clothing perfect for any occasion with casual to dress attire and even a bridal collection. We pop in here to discover adorable footwear and fantastic necklaces and earrings at a great price. Taj Sari Palace (2553 W Devon Ave, 773-338-0177) is one of the oldest sari shops on Devon Avenue. At first, the prices might look a tad high, but don't be afraid to bargain it down -- it's allowed here and almost expected. Taj has one of Chicago's largest selections of sari fabric from the most elegant to most outrageous colors. They also offer plenty of stylish textiles for men's suits as well, making it one of the only sari stores along Devon to equally service both guy's and gal's needs. Plus here's a little secret: Taj Sari Palace has one of the biggest collections of bangles within Chicago city limits. This unbelievable bracelet assortment touches on all materials, designs, shades and sizes imaginable and there's something for every budget. We go for the colorful glass bangles and especially adore the gold and silver filigreed designs that give any outfit a unique look.
In addition to fashion and apparel merchants, West Rogers Park boasts a large concentration of specialty bookstores. India Bookhouse and Journals (2551 W Devon Ave, 773-764-6567) has low prices on paperbacks, videos, DVDs and magazines -- in both foreign and English text -- on topics covering Indian culture from Hinduism to Bollywood films. The friendly staff can direct you to what you're looking for, but don't mind letting folks browse the packed shelves indefinitely. When current bestsellers are out of stock at big chain bookstores, check India Bookhouse which often has them at deep-discount prices. The more scholastic Iqra Book Center (2751 W Devon Ave, 773-274-2665) is a research orientated shop and educational institution with an emphasis in Islamic studies. There is consistent programming and resources available for both children and adults on the study of Islam and its surrounding cultures. The bookstore side of Iqra Book Center has texts in French, Bangla, Arabic, Hindi, Turkish, Urdu, English -- just to name a few. But it's the welcoming atmosphere and fascinating selection that keeps us coming back here. The West Rogers Park neighborhood tour of bookdealers continues with the Russian American Bookstore and Art Gallery (2746 W Devon Ave, 773-761-3233), where visitors can find both used and new copies of books on Indo-European subjects, as well as Chicago-focused bestsellers. Artwork hangs on the walls about the sales floor, but a better display is found in the establishment's separate gallery which specializes in exhibits by local artists.

Night on the Town
There is plenty of nightlife in West Rogers Park for both the adventurer and the quiet neighborhood local. Some of these northern Chicago streets are still largely undiscovered and don't get as packed as other Chicago neighborhood hotspots, which leaves plenty of room for parking and curious fun-seekers. The bars on Devon Avenue, on the other hand, have gained quite the popularity and are generally clustered with folks out for a good time.
Casual neighborhood pubs are an easy find in West Rogers Park. Mullen's Sports Bar and Grill (7301 N Western Ave, 773-485-2113) has three locations in Chicago, but its original West Rogers Park site, founded in 2000, holds strong. There's always a sporting event on one of the six large televisions, plenty of dart boards, a pool table, and ice cold brews. The welcoming atmosphere, daily beer specials, and Saturday night blind draw card games don't hurt either. The sports tradition continues with Mark 2 Lounge (7436 N Western Ave, 773- 465-9675). This jovial pub is a second home for plenty of locals and Northwestern students that head down from campus in Evanston. The food is pizza, plain and simple, and the beers are too: Schlitz and Pabst. Mark 2 definitely caters to a younger, college crowd where everybody gets loose into the late hour of 4am. Cary's Lounge (2251 W Devon Ave, 773-743-5737) boasts totally free pool tables (did we mention they're free?) and one of the best jukeboxes in Chicago. Patsy Cline, Curtis Blow, Iggy and the Stooges, and other great selections play well into the night. Harp, Guinness, Bass, Bud, Miller Lite, Hardcore Cider and more are on tap all the time -- with an even bigger selection of domestic and import bottles. A Sunday afternoon pilgrimage gets you free barbecue (weather permitting), while Saturdays get lively with karaoke.
The search for a wilder side of West Rogers Park night finds places like Karaoke Restaurant (6248 N California Ave, 773-274-1166). But don't be fooled by the name -- it's more bar than restaurant. For a flat rate, rent one of the small private rooms for a flamboyant karaoke experience -- like in the movie Lost in Translation with Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. Be sure to order a few authentic Korean drinks and juices to get you in the mood for crooning. Though you can pop in for karaoke on the weekdays without any notice, reservations are necessary if you don't want a long wait on the weekends.
Juliana Restaurant and Nightclub (3001 W. Peterson Ave, 773-334-0000) brings the Arabic nightclub experience to Chicago with swaying, elegant belly dancers and hookahs (available for rent). The Arabic house band rocks the dance floor with Middle Eastern music until 4am. Is it someone's birthday? Let your server know and they'll be serenaded by a round of "Happy Birthday" in Arabic. Juliana's also dishes up exotic munchies such as hummus and bhaba ghanuj, spiced to perfection and the perfect late night appetizers. Another culturally-inspired nightclub in West Rogers Park neighborhood is Bollywood Nights Bar and Grill (2639 W Peterson Ave, 773-728-7000). Bollywood Nights is set off by dramatic blue lighting, a serious sound system, and a small stage for local acts. The kitchen is open until midnight serving up Indian and Pakistani dishes like traditional hummus and pita, and lusciously seasoned kebabs. The extensive drink list features both foreign and domestic beverages, but we're always up for trying the unusual imports from India and Pakistan. Our favorites are the lightly spiced Old Monk Rum, the well-matured Sikkim Snow Lion White Rum, and the always tasty Karma Beer.

For whatever reason, West Rogers Park has a large number video and DVD rental places within its borders. Not surprisingly, many stock foreign films (with a heavy Indian and West Asian inventory). So around these parts, the best place catch a show is in your own living room.
Sometimes there's nothing better than cozying up at home with a good flick. When the "hermit" mood hits, get adventurous and check out the specialty movie stores of West Rogers Park -- you can't throw a rock here without striking one, chockfull of obscure, current, and foreign films. Atlantic Video (2541 W Devon Ave, 773-338-3600) has a ton of popular Indian and Pakistani motion pictures and a pleasant staff to help guide you through the choices. The selection includes not only movies, but television series, and almost everything in stock has English subtitles. What makes Atlantic even cooler is the fact that they also carry CDs. Bombay Video (7574 N Western Ave, 773-743-5575) is another extraordinary rental shop in West Rogers Park that offers clients wide cultural diversity. This is no Blockbuster, the racks here are filled with big screen hits to watch on your small screen in Hindi, Bengali, Pakistani, Indian, and more. Like Atlantic Video, Bombay also has a wide collection of music, too. Into Slavic films -- or just curious to know what one entails? Mosey over to Elita Video (2753 W Devon Ave, 773-262-9270), an excellent Russian movie rental spot. Not only does Elita provide movie buffs with current and time-honored American features, it also carries contemporary and classic Russian pictures, everything from children's programming to Russian action-adventure cinema -- for the most part including subtitles, thankfully.

Mark Your Calendar
There is a certain quiet elegance to West Rogers Park, which means street festivals are not as abundant as in other Chicago neighborhoods. That's not to say there aren't a couple of widely-anticipated parades that get attention during summer.
Held in mid-August, the India Independence Day Parade (W Devon Ave and Western Ave, 773-593-3210) commemorates India's separation from the British Empire in 1947. Every year tons of folks of Indian descent gather in West Rogers Park to celebrate their heritage and culture. Whether you've just arrived in the United States from New Delhi or you're third generation American, or you have no Indian roots whatsoever, this event is a fun and friendly party that takes pride in our country's diversity and considerable population of Indians. The Pakistani Independence Day Parade (W Devon Ave and Ridge Ave) always falls in mid-August as near as possible to August 14th -- Pakistan's official Independence Day. A tribute to cultural pride and traditions, the day is packed with events including poetry recitation, speeches, readings and numerous green Pakistani flags waving in the open air.
[Back To Top]
West Rogers Park is one of the easier neighborhoods to navigate in Chicago. There is generally plenty of street parking, and traffic is not as dense as neighborhoods closer to the Loop. However, beware of weekend nights along Devon Avenue when pedestrians and cars make it slow going. West Rogers Park is a short drive over to I-94 (Edens Expressway), which will take motorists into downtown in about a half hour, if there's no congestion. But on days when the morning traffic report shows long travel times along the highways, we stick to the surface streets. Lincoln Avenue cuts diagonally towards the city's center, although this route can be slow going, too, with stoplights and a fair amount of local motorists.
For anyone who prefers not to drive or doesn't have a car, West Rogers Park also offers an exceptional network of Chicago Transit Authority bus options -- one of the best in the city -- that easily connects travelers to the Red/Purple Line elevated train stations (also known as "El" stops) situated a few blocks away in East Rogers Park. While the El is great for heading south into the Loop, most West Rogers Park residents use the bus lines to get around the neighborhood. A fleet of buses run from morning 'til midnight with a few operating until even later to accommodate those late nights out on the town.
Sometimes, comfy seats and a book in hand is the ultimate way to travel downtown. In that case, take the five- or ten-minute bus ride to the Rogers Park Metra Station (7000 N Ravenswood Ave) to catch a commuter train straight to the city's center. If you're going into the office everyday in the Loop, this really is the way to go. That extra 20 minutes or half hour each morning is great for catching a few more winks before that important Monday meeting, or finishing up the makeup you didn't have time to apply at home.
Even with all the great public transportation alternatives in this north side Chicago neighborhood, we still try to walk or bike as much as possible since most of the action in West Rogers Park is concentrated in one spot, making everything a hop, skip or a jump from one another.

School's in Session
West Rogers Parks has one of the largest concentrations of ethnically diverse public and private educational institutions in the Chicagoland area. There is an academic setting for every type of student, whether child or adult, in this scholastically established area. Decatur Classical School (7030 N Sacramento Ave, 773-534-2201) was rated the number one elementary in the state of Illinois by the Chicago Sun Times in 2007. It's a small nurturing school that helps intellectually talented kids (who generally excel one or two years above grade level) develop socially and psychologically. Moving on to the teenagers, Mather High School (5835 N Lincoln Ave, 773-534-2350) focuses on priming young adults for the college experience. Over 75 percent of its students speak multiple languages and many participate in the Advanced Placement (AP) classes that span from U.S. history to chemistry. When seeking a co-educational modern Orthodox high school, Ida Crown Jewish Academy (2828 W Pratt Blvd, 773- 973-1450) is one of the several options available in West Rogers Park neighborhood. Ida Crown specializes in preparing students with the long term learning skills necessary to continue their education at various Yeshivot, seminaries, and universities.
