Roscoe Village

Roscoe Village Over the past several years, Roscoe Village has begun a metamorphosis from a quiet, working-class family neighborhood to one with a younger, hipper, transplant population. It has quickly become one of the cooler places to live, and the influx of those unwilling or unable to afford Lincoln Park have chosen it as a roost. As a result, Roscoe Village is home to scores of bars, shops, supermarkets, and restaurants catering to the old local families, newer condo dwellers, and everyone in-between.

The population here is still diverse, but rehabbing is running rampant; its easy to see that today’s empty warehouse or manufacturing buildings will be tomorrow’s condo and loft space. Roscoe Village is located between Belmont and Addison Avenues, and west from Paulina Street to Western Avenue. The stretch of Belmont from Western Avenue west to the River is known as “Antique Row,” and is THE place in the Midwest for finding whatever antiques you’re looking for.

City of Chicago Vehicle Stickers

All Chicago residents driving, parking, leasing and/or owning a vehicle for which they are responsible in the City of Chicago are subject to the Chicago Wheel Tax and must purchase a Chicago City Vehicle Sticker.

We want motorists to avoid costly tickets: You must purchase a Chicago Vehicle Sticker within 30 days of residing in the City or acquiring a new vehicle to avoid late fees and fines.

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 We also recommend that you ask your Real Estate Agent, Leasing Agent, or Land Lord about parking permit requirements in your area.
