Impressions of North Center

As a newcomer to North Center and Lincoln Square, I am finding the area is like a small town inside a big city. I love how many people are out walking at all hours, and most of the people I see are friendly and say hello. There is just enough hustle and bustle on the streets to make you feel part of something exciting. The stores where I’ve shopped have been unique and interesting, and the restaurants delicious! I love the fact that there are so many choices.

Our family made a wise choice in moving to North Center from the northern suburbs.We couldn’t ask for a better place to live.
