The Neighborhood Of Wicker Park
ChicagoRelo.com is your source for information on Wicker Park. If your moving to Wicker Park or just visiting, you will find all kinds of information on real estate, schools, areas, parks, churches, crime, things to do, places to visit, local businesses, dining, and much more!This fun, attractive area is located between Division and North avenues, from the Kennedy Expressway (90/94) to Western Avenue. Historic Wicker Park stands out as an area of attractive three-flats and old 1800 mansions, including those of Beer Baron Row (Hoyne Street between Pierce and Schiller). Here visitors can find the homes of several of the “Haymarket Martyrs.” The Haymarket Martyrs were a group of German anarchists sentenced to die in 1887. They were accused of planting a bomb (though the true culprit was never found) that killed a policeman at a Michigan Avenue rally for the eight-hour workday. In the confusion, the police opened fire into the darkness. Several more policemen were eventually killed, probably from their own fire. Though several of the anarchists weren’t at the rally of 80,000 marchers, seven were convicted and sentenced to hang. The Haymarket Martyrs were pardoned by Governor John Peter Altgeld, but not before four had already been hung and one had apparently committed suicide. This incident is celebrated around the world, as May Day in the United States, and Labor Day everywhere else.

This area is now inhabited by one of the largest populations of working artists in any major city in the country. Its offbeat restaurants, bars, galleries, street musicians, and boutiques contribute to the amiability and familiarity reminiscent of a real, familiar neighborhood. One day in Wicker Park could see you buy a sequined armchair, have a dinner of octopi and chocolate-covered asparagus, get a tattoo, see a thrash band, and watch the sun rise from one of its many late-night clubs. Cheap buildings and low rents, coupled with a convenient El stop, brought chic bohemia to Wicker Park, but those same cheap buildings and that same El stop now bring contractors, and with them the upwardly-mobile condo buyers. $15,000 Harleys and black SUV’s now appear on Wicker Park streets as often as the rusty Schwinn Speedy and burping 10th-owner Vespa. The offbeat quality of this great neighborhood still remains (for the moment), but the local restaurants, bars, and boutiques are beginning to sniff dollars on the breeze.
