Ukrainian Village Chicago voted BEST PLACE TO LIVE
Ukrainian Village is a Chicago neighborhood located on the near west side of Chicago. Its boundaries are Division Street to the north, Grand Avenue to the south, Western Avenue to the west, and Damen Avenue to the east.
By the 1930s, there were five Ukrainian parishes dotting Chicago’s neighborhoods, including some in the Byzantine-Slavonic style of St. Nicholas Cathedral. Built between November 1913 and January 1915, St. Nicholas is in the heart of the Ukrainian neighborhood south of Wicker Park and along Chicago Avenue, fondly referred to by locals as Ukrainian Village.
This neighborhood, northwest of the Loop, was first settled by Polish and Slovak immigrants, but with the rise of Ukrainian nationalism and the influx of political refugees during World War I, it assumed a Ukrainian cultural identity which lingers to this day.
NOT ONLY is it the hottest neighborhood in Chicago currently, Ukrainian Village has captured
“hottest neighborhood in the country”
honors, online real estate brokerage Redfin says.
The 2015 median sales price for homes in the neighborhood was $472,000, and houses are typically on the market for 22 days, Redfin found.
Another major appeal of the neighborhood is its character and charm, which homebuyers are starting to prioritize more and more, Redfin noted in its report.
