Situated, as its name suggests, on the shores of Lake Michigan, Edgewater is home to beaches, churches and towering reminders of the neighborhood's past. Once regarded as one of Chicago's most affluent areas, high-rises and mansions sprung up in the North Side neighborhood, including the bright pink Edgewater Beach Apartments. Encompassing Andersonville and sharing a border with Uptown, there's no shortage of restaurants, music venues and interesting things to do. Plan a stroll through Edgewater with the help of our neighborhood guide.
