Edgewater

The Neighborhood Of Edgewater

Natural beauty, a wide range of housing options, cultural diversity, and some of Chicago’s most exciting views (including full panoramas of the lakefront, downtown and the suburbs) mark Edgewater, a patchwork of residential districts bounded by Foster, Devon, Ravenswood and the lake.

The neighborhood has high-rises along Sheridan Road, mid- century courtyard buildings along the Winthrop-Kenmore corridor, and tree-lined streets and large houses west of Broadway. Today, Edgewater’s convenient transportation, lakefront location, gay-friendly community and 17 parks and beaches make it attractive to a diversified group of Chicagoans.

The neighborhood beach has a fishing pier, “contemplation point”, walking paths and flowers. Loyola University students and faculty live throughout the area. Though thought by some to be a “sketchy” area, Edgewater is a fine neighborhood to visit and live in.

Residential Parking Permits

Chicago’s Residential Parking Permit program is designed to restrict parking on designated residential streets during specified hours, except for the residents of that street, guests of the residents or those who provide a service to the residents. This program helps to ensure that residents of densely populated areas have reasonable access to parking near their residences. Cars parked in violation of this ordinance are ticketed.

The City of Chicago does not mess around. The city has a dillignet parking patrol staff that will ticket you if you are in a spot where a permit you don’t have is required. All spots that require permits are marked with white street signs. Please look out for them!

For more information, contact the city clerk at 312-744-6861 or email info@chicityclerk.com. We also recommend that you ask your Real Estate Agent, Leasing Agent, or Land Lord about parking permit requirements in your area.
