The Ultimate Guide to Moving into Lakeview

Brought to you by Chicago’s Best Lakeview Movers

Lakeview (or sometimes Lake View) is a diverse and vibrant neighborhood that rises right along the water. Right next to Wrigleyville and Boystown, and conveniently close to the red and brown lines, Lakeview is home to numerous restaurants, bars, shops, and great Chicago institutions both old and new. As your go-to Lakeview movers, we’ll help you settle in at your cozy vintage home or water-facing high rise, so you can start finding the features right around the corner.

Lakeview is home to almost 100,000 people, around half men and half women. Their median age is in their mid-30s, and many people are married and have children. Average yearly income is about $70k.

When Chicago was growing in the 19th century, the area around Lakeview was farmed by immigrants from northern Europe. The population grew as city dwellers came to the area to escape disease, and Lakeview developed into a more urban area to fulfill the increased housing needs. While Lakeview remained a thriving commercial area throughout the 20th century, it experienced a boom of gentrification at the beginning of the 21st, and continues to be an exciting place to live today.

Now you’ve got the gist, here are some highlights—and basics—we found to help you start your best Lakeview life.
