Around the Neighborhood
Budlong Woods apartments typically come in a low-density form. The streets are lined with many single-family homes in the bungalow style, and there's also a healthy dose of elegant vintage apartment buildings thrown into the mix.
Budlong Woods Chicago includes Legion Park, which straddles the Chicago River and contains a variety of baseball diamonds, playgrounds, tennis courts, and basketball courts. There's even a shot-put area for aspiring track and field athletes. Casual cyclists and hikers enthuse the North Channel Trail, which runs along Legion Park and continues north to Green Bay Road in Evanston. However, a few of the significant east-west commercial thoroughfares require careful negotiation.
The Swedish Covenant Hospital and the Budlong Woods public library branch are conveniently located in the neighborhood. One of Chicago's most desirable magnet schools, commonly known as "Northside Prep," sits just across the Chicago River.
Lincoln Avenue cuts directly through the neighborhood and heads straight to Lincoln Village, a shopping mall with many tenants, including Home Depot, Office Depot, and Famous Footwear.
The Lincoln Avenue corridor in the Budlong Woods neighborhood is also a fast-food paradise for budget-conscious diners. As a bonus, San Soo Gab San, perhaps the most popular Korean restaurant in Chicago, is located on the easternmost edge of the neighborhood and greets its guests with a delectable array of panch'an every evening until 1 a.m. Hub's restaurant is also famous for its legendary gyros, popularized in a Saturday Night Live sketch by the late Chris Farley.
Public transportation to the Loop is not a cinch. Commuters have to hitch a ride on the Foster Avenue bus and travel a mile-and-a-half east to the Berwyn 'L' Station, on the Red line. Commuters can also take the Lincoln Avenue bus south to the Western Avenue station on the Brown line.
