The Neighborhood Of Old Town
Bridging the gap between the young, professional near-North and the riche Gold Coast is the Old Town Triangle area. It was settled in the mid 1800's when Chicago absorbed a wave of German farmers and semi-skilled laborers leaving Germany for the greener pastures of the New World. During the 1960's, Old Town became the center of the “Bohemian Renaissance” movement. In recent years, the development of several highrises and the award-winning conversion of the Dr. Scholl shoe factory into luxury residential lofts (Cobbler Square), coupled with the emergence of new town homes, has brought upscale retail and dining establishments with a vengeance. Neighboring Cabrini-Green is rapidly being eaten-away, providing contractors with blocks to build on and buildings to renovate. Probably the brightest star to come out of Old Town’s recent development is the Walter Payton College Prep High School. Named after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bear, the school selects its elite students from a large applicant pool and features a planetarium, greenhouse, ten science labs, and a host of high tech equipment.

The annual Old Town art fair has grown into the largest juried art fair in the country. Wells Street, once a strip of hippie head shops and boutiques, now offers upscale shops. Nearby on Halsted Street is the impressive new home of the Steppenwolf Theater, the epitome of storefront or, specifically, church basement theater, all grown up. Today, Old Town remains one of the most lively and picturesque neighborhoods in Chicago. Piper’s Alley, the local theater, features films out of the mainstream and adds to the neighborhood’s “edgy” aura. Old Town provides Chicago with some of its largest late-night club venues, as well as several comedy clubs, including the world-renowned “Second City” comedy troupe. This interesting neighborhood can found between Division Street north to Armitage Avenue and east from LaSalle Street to Sheffield Avenue. The Old Town Triangle area was designated a Chicago landmark district in 1977, and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
