Andersonville is a popular neighborhood (tucked inside Edgewater) on the far northside of Chicago with Swedish roots dating back more than a hundred years. The eclectic commercial center of the neighborhood straddles Clark street and includes a host of independently-owned boutiques, bakeries, bars, and restaurants. It's a small, but diverse area with a relatively high "hipness" quotient and a healthy corps of devoted community organizations who fight for green streets and support locally-owned businesses.
Residents of Andersonville enjoy the farmer’s market, featuring local harvesters and artisans who abundantly dispense free samples of delicious cheese curds and veggies. It's all here: heaps of concord grapes and just-picked apples, Wisconsin cheeses, herbs and herb rubs, hand-made pastas, and fresh meat. Locals also celebrate the summer solstice at a fair modeled after Sweden’s midsommarfests. Andersonville’s version offers fun crowds and delicious foods.
Andersonville apartments can be found in a vast array of vintage courtyard buildings, two-flats, and single-family homes.
