Near North Side map
Near North Side is a neighborhood of Chicago.
The community is just north of the Loop.
Bounded by the Chicago River and Lake Michigan.
In the middle of the 19th century, the area around the mouth of the river served as an epicenter for illegal activities in the city.

The Fire of 1871 destroyed almost all of the buildings in the area. Following that, however, the community became a hot spot for wealthy city residents who wanted to live close to the lake.

Following the construction of the Michigan Avenue Bridge, completed in 1920, North Michigan Avenue became a center for the sale of high-end goods.

Local festivals include:
  • Wells Street Art Festival - June 9-10, 2007
