Near North is a greater area which encompasses the city’s Gold Coast, Old Town, Goose Island, River North, and Streeterville communities. Near North remains highly desirable for its location, as it was in the 1780’s when Jean Baptiste Point du Sable built the first known permanent settlement in what Chicago was then called, “Eschecagou”.
The Chicago River and Lake Michigan form three edges of Near North and ends at the north at North Avenue. From its famed Magnificent Mile, to its effervescent Navy Pier, to its world-renowned dining, nightclubs and shopping at Rush and Oak Streets, Near North is home to the best of the best.
From some of the most lavish single family and condominium residences to sell in America, to some of the reasonably affordable housing options, Near North has it all.
Chicago Transit Authority trains, as well as several buses routes, run throughout the area, around the clock.
