Get to Know Avondale

Northwest of downtown Chicago, Avondale is north of the booming Logan Square neighborhood. It lies northwest along the Kennedy Expressway (routes 90/94) and the CTA Blue Line that runs between O'Hare and downtown. Its main borders are Western, Diversey, Addison and Pulaski avenues, while Belmont and Milwaukee run right through it. Avondale is a stable community that offers an excellent variety of housing types and price points.

Factories and brickyards that sprang up by the railroads were responsible for the initial wave of immigrants in Avondale, mostly Germans, Scandinavians and Poles. The neighborhood maintains the patina of Old World Europe. Aromas from the neighborhood's old-time sausage-makers still fill the air, but are now mixed with the flavors of many other cultures. Residents still sit outside on their stoops or lean out second-floor windows, to say hello.

What to do in Avondale

Avondale has a Polish history that is reflected in many dining options and it's strong sense of community. It has convenient access to the city, the suburbs and downtown. Residents enjoy a wonderful range of businesses, restaurants and shops, from large national chains to more personal "mom-and-pop" establishments.

Avondale is enjoying moderate growth as residents from denser, more expensive Chicago neighborhoods look for better-priced options. Avondale provides accessibility and proximity to the trendier neighborhoods, often with a lower price tag.

Avondale's Distinctive Housing

Avondale offers a wide variety of housing types and price points, including frame houses, modest brick bungalows, multi-units, two flats and condominiums.
