Edgewater apartments come in a great many varieties: apartments in lakefront high-rises, apartments in "four-and-ones," apartments in vintage inland skyscrapers, and apartments in brownstones, amongst other styles. And for many residents an equally big draw to the neighborhood is the opportunity to enjoy food from around the globe within steps of their homes. From European to Asian, South American to African, this neighborhood is truly foodie friendly.
Edgewater includes both Andersonville and Lakewood-Balmoral (eachtreated as a separate neighborhood on this website), and it stretches from the shores of Lake Michigan all the wayto Ravenswood Avenue. In the summer, the Foster and Hollywood beaches are magnets for sports enthusiasts and sun-bathers alike, and the park district offers free entertainment with its "Movies In The Park" series. Transportation to and from Edgewater is easy, thanks to the red and purple el trains which run directly through the neighborhood as well as countless express and local buses.
