Originally a giant barnyard (where 19th-Century farmers raised their "bucks"), Bucktown Chicago morphed into a gritty, industrial outpost before artists and others moved in to take advantage of the low apartment rent. Gentrification soon followed. So naturally, this led to a boom with many new apartments for rent. Today, Bucktown apartments are in high demand; Bucktown has become a popular choice for hip Chicagoans.
