Chicago's Wrigleyville Neighborhood
Formerly a working-class neighborhood, Wrigleyville is the nickname to the neighborhood directly surrounding Wrigley Field. Part of Chicago's Lakeview community, Wrigleyville boasts many beautifully rehabbed Victorian greystones, two- and three-flat buildings, and multi-unit condominiums.
The history of Wrigleyville is inextricably linked to Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team. Wrigley Field was built in the early 1900's and it was with the building of this monument to baseball that the neighborhood first became defined within the larger Lakeview area. The culture that has since sprung up around the legendary stadium makes the Wrigleyville area a community unto itself.
Also known as Central Lakeview, Wrigleyville's borders run from Diversey Parkway and Irving Park Road, to Halsted Street and Racine Avenue. Its immediate neighbors include Lincoln Park, Belmont Harbor, Roscoe Village and parts of Uptown.
Besides easy access to Lake Shore Drive, Wrigleyville residents enjoy excellent public transportation with express bus routes downtown and CTA Red Line stops at Addison and Belmont.
Shopping is not the primary focus of this neighborhood; while certainly some shops can be found, they are mainly limited to sports-themed merchandise vendors selling Cubs paraphernalia, as well as ticket vendors selling seats for Cubs games. The area is very well developed in terms of restaurants and bars, and easily reached via public transportation.
"Restaurants near Wrigley Field are plentiful and various cuisines can be found here. Music is also a draw to the area. Several of the bars are big music venues at night. Of course, one cannot visit Wrigleyville without noticing the immense stadium under whose shadow everything in Wrigleyville occurs: Wrigley Field."
