OLD TOWN
APARTMENTS FOR RENT

This quintessential urban ‘hood has just a little grit. Wells Street is lined with busy bars, quaint shops, and charming restaurants set in the few historic Victorian buildings that survived the Chicago Fire. You’ll find new buildings mixed in with the old. Like the area itself, Old Town apartments for rent are fun. Some feature a more modern look with concrete surfaces and boxy modern architecture. Others take the shape of funky studios with exposed brick interiors. Others still have all the contemporary class of a downtown highrise.

EXPLORE CHICAGO’S OUTDOORS

Old Town’s proximity to the Lincoln Park neighborhood and the lakefront is a huge part of its appeal. Chicago summers are amazing, and you’ll love being close to some of the hottest warm weather spots in the city. From Old Town, you can easily walk to Lincoln Park, a green space along Lake Michigan that’s actually bigger than New York City’s Central Park.

The Lincoln Park Zoo is one of the last free zoos in the country and it’s a great place to stroll on a warm day and a fun place to run through in the early mornings. The zoo hosts a variety of events year round like Jammin’ at the Zoo, ZooLights, and Brew at the Zoo. Lincoln Park is also home to the Green City Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings during the warmer months where you can pick up plenty of fresh, organic produce.

East of Lincoln Park (an easy walk over a pedestrian bridge) is North Avenue Beach—the prime spot in the city to join in on a game of sand volleyball, stroll along the bustling Lakefront Trail, or go for a swim and take in the skyline views. (The view from here is one of our favorite views of Chicago!) Speaking of views, the adorably modern Lincoln Hotel has a rooftop bar with a panoramic skyline that provides a perfect place to sit and sip during the famous Chicago Air and Water Show every August.

Transit

If you choose to leave the neighborhood, getting into the city is easy: hop on the CTA’s Brown Line at the Sedgwick stop or get on the North Clark Street bus. The bus system even has some express routes available since it’s such a common path. Who knows, maybe you won’t even want to leave Old Town!

RAVE REVIEWS

“Dorothy was extremely helpful during my apartment search. I needed to rent sight-unseen, as I was relocating from Austin to Chicago. She effectively managed the entire process via email and phone calls, and she thoroughly answered all of my questions – I had quite a few. She even went to the site to record a video walkthrough. She provided straightforward, honest opinions about the various apartments and neighborhoods while I considered my options. I highly recommend Dorothy to anyone looking for an apartment, especially if you need a search facilitated remotely. Dorothy took the stress out of my cross-country move.”
