Since moving to Chicago, we have heard about this neighborhood, without a clear understanding of where it is, or what's so great about it. After a recent trip there, we feel very much enlightened. In the area of its commuter rail station, Ravenswood is characterized by repurposed warehouses containing artist studios, galleries, furniture retailers and wholesalers, design firms, and other businesses. Walking through the neighborhood, you feel like you're in a creative mecca. There's even a community art center, and a pizza place that's considered one of the best in the city.
One of those places that makes you feel lucky to live in Chicago.
