Bucktown/Wicker Park

Wicker Park seamlessly melds into Bucktown, its neighbor to the north, which got its name at the turn of the last century, when many immigrant families kept goats in their front yards. Today, trendy boutiques, coffeehouses, restaurants, galleries, nightclubs and storefront theaters are centered around the intersection of Milwaukee, Damen and North avenues, and create a vibrant atmosphere.
