History, charm and pedestrian friendliness are only a few of Chicago's Old Town drawing cards. The neighborhood's long list of qualities reads like a What's What of coveted characteristics that many communities would love to call their own. Qualities like nearby beaches, lakefront parks, public transportation, locally-owned shops and restaurants, nationally-known nightlife venues, excellent schools and crowd-pleasing arts shows and festivals. And, oh yes, looming just a few moments' cab or bus ride away, all the pleasures North Michigan Avenue and the Loop have to offer.
Forty years ago, people descended on this urban patch, and particularly its hub at North Avenue and Wells Street, for its reputation as the Haight-Ashbury of Chicago. Today, culture has replaced counterculture as a neighborhood focus. And traditional button-down collars and ties have supplanted hippie beads as preferred neckwear. But the artistic spirit is still here, both literally and figuratively. Old Town Chicago is a neighborhood that knows the contradictions within its boundaries, and lives with them.
