North Center Chicago

The Ultimate Guide to Moving Into North Center

Brought to you by Chicago’s Best North Center Movers

The North Center neighborhood is located on the north side of Chicago. Sometimes called the “heart of the North Side”, North Center is a historic-looking neighborhood full of modern family-friendly amenities. It’s defined by a strong, warm community focus and events designed to bring that community together. As your North Center movers, we’ll make sure you not only end up in the right place, but that you’ll be quickly ready to join the neighborhood.

With a total population of around 30,000 and a median age of 34, North Center is home to a range of singles, couples and families. There are also a number of kids, of all ages. Most adults have at least a bachelor’s degree, and most earn above $60k a year.

Originally populated by farmers and their tracts of land, North Center developed into a more residential and industrial area in the late 19th century. It was filled by European immigrants who left their mark on the area. North Center was home to a movie studio in the early 20th century, and an amusement park, Riverview Park, until 1967. A shopping plaza and some community buildings now stand on the park’s former site.

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