Around the Neighborhood
Buena Park apartments for rent are typically found in either towering high-rises, condos for rent, six units, townhouses for rent, or vintage courtyard-style apartment buildings. Buena Park is a tiny area, about a half-mile square, tucked into the southeast corner of the Uptown neighborhood, just north of Lakeview. Apartments in Buena Park are among the favorites of Chicago renters due to its proximity to Lake Michigan, the lakefront trail, Marovitz Golf Course, Waveland Tennis Courts, Montrose Beach, Wrigleyville, and Boystown.
Buena Park can be found just west of Lake Shore Drive, along Marine Drive directly across from the Marovitz Golf Course and Montrose Harbor, with its many boat slips. For walking, running, or riding along the lakefront bike path, it's hard to beat the Buena Park location. On the other hand, it's slightly north of the action in Wrigleyville and Boystown, and the options for dining, shopping, and entertainment are more limited. There is, however, a Jewel/Osco in the neighborhood.
Public transportation is reasonably accessible, as buses run along each of the four major thoroughfares in Buena Park, namely, Sheridan Road, Broadway, Clarendon Avenue, and Marine Drive, and an el station with Red Line and Purple Line CTA trains is located at the southwest tip of Buena Park at Sheridan and Irving Park Road. CTA bus routes available in Buena Park are 36, 78, 135, 136, 146, 148.

History in Buena Park
Apartments in Buena Park are known for their proximity to the lakefront and quiet side streets, but there was one notorious Chicago resident who was an on-and-off apartment dweller in this sleepy North Side neighborhood. John Dillinger, prolific bank robber and Public Enemy No. 1, used a room in the third floor of a Buena Park apartment building at 4310 N Clarendon Ave as one of his hideouts.
