The Ultimate Guide to Moving Into Wrigleyville
June 27, 2017
Brought to you by Chicago’s Best Wrigleyville Movers
There’s always something to celebrate in Wrigleyville. It’s home to Wrigley Field, where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to support the Chicago Cubs, but it’s also the site of bustling, low-key entertainment and night life. While things get pretty active near the stadium, where there are plenty of bars, restaurants, and souvenir stores, the residential side streets are broad, shady, and lined with historic homes. There’s also more to explore in nearby Boystown and West Lakeview. As your Wrigleyville movers, we’ll help you settle in your new place so you can go join the celebration right away.
Nearly 8,000 people live in the Wrigleyville area, with a few more men than women. Most residents are in their 20s or 30s, and tend to make around $70k or $80k per year. Over half have Bachelor’s degrees, and a quarter also have their Master’s.
Like its surrounding Lakeview neighborhoods, Wrigleyville was settled by European immigrants in the mid-19th century, and became part of Chicago in 1889. The original Wrigley Field was built decades later, in 1914, when the area was a thriving working class community. The Cubs began playing there a few years later, and the neighborhood continued to grow and develop through the next century.
Now you’ve got the gist, here are some highlights—and basics—we found to help you start your best Wrigleyville life.
