The Edgewater Neighborhood is an urban community with suburban amenities. Spacious yards, friendly neighbors, and wide streets team up with Lake Michigan's shoreline to make this one of Chicago's most popular neighborhoods. In the summertime, residents can enjoy a handful of garden walks and community fairs that are headed by its local politics and very own historical society. Not only does Edgewater provide people with local activities, but with a speedy drive to downtown Chicago by way of Lake Shore Drive, and with fantastic access to trains and buses, there is never a dull moment for the people of this neighborhood. Edgewater provides prospective buyers with an array of housing choices such as multi-unit-mid-rises, condominiums, high rises and single-family homes. It provides housing for a diverse mix of income levels and offers residents many restaurants and business and boasts a strong network of community-based organizations.
