Andersonville neighborhood

Andersonville news

Andersonville has its core within Foster Ave (5200 N) to Bryn Mawr Ave (5600 N), Glenwood Ave (1400 W) to Ravenswood Ave (1800 W). The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce lays claim to a much broader area. Andersonville's popularity has led adjacent areas to call themselves East Andersonville, West Andersonville and South Andersonville. Those areas are distinctly different from the core of Andersonville.

Andersonville is a part of Edgewater.

ZIP code: 60640.

Will an Andersonville school convert to “Trumbull Lofts”?

A recent Atlantic Cities post sketched the real estate issues that accompany school closings: One of the thorniest issues (in what is a veritable forest of mess) is what to do with those school buildings once they’re empty.
