Quiet and friendly, this north side Chicago neighborhood feels like one of the city's last true villages. However, its location offers sophisticated options to singles, couples and families who prefer a touch of big city living as opposed to a totally suburban lifestyle. Roscoe Village certainly does draw a family crowd and baby-strollers, toddlers and beaming parents are spotted on almost every street corner. The conventional flats and vintage walkups in Roscoe Village are an ideal home for young families who don't need too much space and appreciate the minimal yard work and grounds upkeep. For those who like to garden and stretch the legs a bit more, Roscoe Village has a large pool of private properties with plant-rich lots and traditional houses. A rise in new luxury construction is also hitting the scene, and the dining and nightlife is long established, giving this quaint Chicago “village” a highly metropolitan edge.
