Humboldt Park on the West side of Chicago. There are so many things to love about Humboldt Park, from its rich Puerto Rican roots, to its historic namesake 207-acre park, to the pops of color from the neighborhood’s unique street art. Mixed in with the neighborhood’s Puerto Rican pride is a thriving community of artists and young professionals. That means the streets here are filled with one-of-a-kind street art projects, bustling coffee shops, wine bars, casual Puerto Rican joints, and more.
Limestone multifamily buildings with new construction along the boulevards, signals the evolution of this coveted West Side community. The popular 606 elevated trail has been credited with contributing to increased demand for new, upscale housing, yet Humboldt Park’s vast inventory of aging flats and worker cottages present affordable and accessible options for first time homebuyers or those looking to put in sweat equity. The median home value of this neighborhood is $241,953
