Lincoln Square / Ravenswood

The names Lincoln Square and Ravenswood are often used interchangeably, representing two distinct but closely-linked communities. Ravenswood is a small, predominately residential neighborhood mostly contained within the eastern half of the larger Lincoln Square Area. Lincoln Square encompasses a number of commercial districts and residential pockets. The area has long been known for its German identity, but today you're just as likely to see businesses catering to residents of Asian and Middle Eastern descent. It also contains a former industrial corridor along the Chicago & Northwestern Railway tracks (Ravenswood Avenue) that has been transformed into a unique arts, shopping and craft beverage production district.
