Bucktown Neighborhood Information
Chicago’s Bucktown Neighborhood is bound by North Ave, Western Ave and the Kennedy Expressway. Bucktown is a trendy area with lots of new restaurants and shops. There are 2 CTA Blue Line train stations in Bucktown. The Blue Line “EL” train stops are located at: Armitage & Western, North & Damen. Bucktown features many clothing boutiques, coffee shops and hair salons.
Recent gentrification has transformed Bucktown from a former working-class residential neighborhood into a hip, urban area full of chic boutiques, galleries and restaurants. Carefully restored workers cottages and residences are now home to artists and young professionals attracted this vibrant area in close proximity to the Loop and easy access via the CTA Blue Line. Bucktown’s name may have originated from the large numbers of goats (bucks) raised by the Polish immigrants that settled here in the 19th century.
