Unique perspectives on the city from the people who live here.

Tag - Brown Line

The colorful Ravenswood corridor in Lincoln Square hugs the Metra right-of-away as it makes its way north through a clutch of North Side Chicago neighborhoods. Many of the former industrial buildings along this street now house a range of booming businesses (including craft breweries!), and spending an afternoon in these parts is quite pleasant. Why not take a short trip and visit a few of our favorite Ravenswood gems. Let's get started!

I like to see Chicago by riding the city's 'L,' and I encourage visitors to do the same. Most folks might take a quick trip around the Loop, but if you have a little extra time, a ride on the Brown Line will afford you a bird's-eye view of the city as the train travels to the Northwest Side. Hop off at the Kedzie stop (second-to-last on the line) and you'll find yourself in the diverse Albany Park neighborhood.
