Studio apartments in Andersonville are in a distinct slice of the north side that's stocked with interesting restaurants, vintage furniture shops, legendary taverns and a recognizable water tower that's painted to resemble the Swedish flag. Why all the Swedish paraphernalia in Andersonville? The neighborhood used to be filled with cherry orchards tended by Swedish farmers in the early days of Chicago. Now, apartment renters in Andersonville can live in a more diverse neighborhood than the name suggests, and Andersonville has emerged as one of the most LGBTQ-friendly neighborhoods of Chicago.
