These locals love their neighborhoods.

�We love to walk down Milwaukee Avenue. Antique Taco is surrounded by vintage signs from Barry�s Drugs and Central Furniture; it gives the street so much character.�Ashley and Alex Ortiz, owners of Antique Taco in Wicker Park
�I like living and working in Bucktown because I can walk to and from my favorite places in the �hood�like Le Bouchon, Danny�s, Apartment Number 9, p.45 and, for a mescal margarita, Big Star.�Robin Richman, owner of Robin Richman boutique in Bucktown
�I love Wicker Park/Bucktown. There�s an excitement in the air. It�s crackling with new business, ideas, art and people just wanting to have fun. I love the diversity too. It�s got class, style, grunge and a little edge. In addition to the Den Theatre, some of my favorite spots include Antique Taco, Emporium Arcade, Falafel and Grill, and Goorin Bros.�Ryan Martin, artistic director at the Den Theatre
