East Village
Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

East Village Overview

East Village is a part of West Town.

East Village is a charming, charismatic west side neighborhood that seamlessly blends old brownstones with new buildings, and Eastern European residents with new inhabitants. Modern townhomes and condominium developments have been built next to 100-year-old, vintage walkups, encouraging a fresh generation of Chicagoans to move to the area and make this Old World neighborhood home. Foodies will find the East Village lacks nothing in the way of culinary supremacy and the nightlife is just as full with hip clubs, lovable dives and even a hookah bar. East Villlage shopping should not be overlooked — music, fashion, gift items and any offbeat accessory you could want are all right down the street from your front door.

East Village real estate is characterized by a slew of brown- and greystones that are at least 100 years old. But the neighborhood is hardly one-dimensional when it comes to real estate. If you can't snag one of the historical homes (a few of which are designated official Chicago landmarks), you can find housing options that range from classic two-flats to Eastern European-inspired, small cottage-style single-family houses, to brand new condos. Modern townhomes have sprung up next door to vintage walk-ups, but still East Village's residential rows maintain a continuity that seamlessly blends the old with the new.

Whatever your housing preferences, you'll likely be settled on a quiet, tree-lined street filled with families, artists and entrepreneurs, some who have been in the neighborhood for generations and others who have just arrived. Regardless, we'll guarantee that they all really love their charming, peaceful and quiet urban neighborhood.

East Village History

Like so many of its West Town counterparts (Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, Noble Square, etc.) East Village saw the largest population boost after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, when refugees began to make their new homes west of downtown. The name East Village comes from being situated east of Ukrainian Village. Clever, eh? In fact, it was originally considered part of Ukrainian Village.

East Village's population continued to expand in the late 1800s, as the Logan Square and Humboldt Park Rapid Transit lines were completed and the Paulina Street trolley was installed. East Village's proximity to the "L" trains (so-named for its elevated tracks) caused the area to be more densely populated and working-class than its West Town neighbors. East Village began to gain its own identity as older buildings were rehabbed and re-inhabited, and small mom-and-pop shops and restaurants appeared on the Village streets in the early twentieth century.

Through the years, East Village has seen demographics ebb and flow, and crime rates soar and then drop. But one thing has stayed consistent: the Eastern European influence is still evident.
