Culture, Cuisine and Careers
Nestled between West Augusta Boulevard and Chicago Avenue, the Ukrainian Village has evolved from a home of Ukrainian immigrants to a diverse mix of working class individuals; it has become one of the most desirable areas to live in the city.
The rich Ukrainian culture is everywhere from the restaurants and churches to the cultural center and museum. For those who love the “Ma & Pop” shops or restaurants, Ukrainian Village has no shortage of great food and great people.
With all of the hardworking people living in the Ukrainian Village, it’s no surprise that cozy little dive bars would line the streets. Small pubs and sports bars comprise most of the nightlife in the neighborhood but its residents can’t complain. Art galleries, bookstores and yoga studios are also enjoyed by residents.
If you’re looking for Chicago lofts for sale, the Ukrainian Village provides both location and amenities. Lofts for newlyweds and singles are readily available in the Ukrainian Village, as well as three-story homes for families wanting to mix city life with suburban spatial luxury. Due to its European origins, the housing in this neighborhood replicates that of a small European town. That being said, many of these homes have been refurbished into beautiful, modern living spaces fit for families eager to enjoy this well-kept neighborhood.
The Chicago El does not run through the Ukrainian Village but bus routes are readily available. The Chicago #66 bus will take you right downtown and the #50 Damen or #9 Ashland bus are easy routes leading north and south.
