Roscoe Village is quaint, peaceful, and family oriented
Roscoe Village is a quaint, peaceful, low key and family oriented neighborhood that offers an unbeatable location in the midst of the city with convenient access to the loop, the north side, the highway, and the train station. That's not to say that it doesn't hold any appeal to young professionals, on the contrary. With its convenience to downtown, the highway and north side attractions like Wrigley Field, its location is desirable for many city dwellers.
Roscoe Village is located north and west of downtown. It is bordered to the north by Addison Ave, to the south by Belmont Ave, to the east by Damen Ave, and to the west by Western Ave. It is sometimes referred to as being part of West Lakeview or North Center. It is accessible by numerous buses as well as by the Paulina Brown Line el stop. Roscoe draws people in with its walkable proximity to nearby areas like Lakeview, Wrigleyville, Bucktown and Lincoln Park.
