An early Chicago city planner defended “The Lakefront by right belongs to the people.”  The prize for utilizing the Lake to its fullest goes to Old Town, Lincoln Park, and Lakeview. These neighborhoods feature fine shopping and restaurants, close proximity to Lake Michigan, the park, and the Zoo.   Lakeview is proud to be the home of the Cubs and is the site for Wrigley Field.   In Lincoln Park, you will find biking and jogging paths, yacht clubs and marinas, ice skating, baseball diamonds and even a lagoon that is home to a local rowing club.   It is common to see people walking to and from coffee shops, parks, and various gourmet eateries.   Elegant high rise buildings peacefully coexist alongside charming row houses.  Below are a few modern developments shaping these neighborhoods.
