With Pride Month culminating in the 41st annual Pride Parade down North Halsted Street in Lake View this Sunday, it seems like a fine time to break out this recent favorite from the YoChicago video archives. Last fall, I met up with @properties agent Bob Darrow on Halsted to get a Realtor’s-eye view of Boys Town. We started at the corner of Halsted and Cornelia, where Bob briefly described the location and history of Boys Town. The rest of our walk, found in our Boys Town playlist on YouTube, took us west to Wrigley Field and back east into the residential streets between Broadway and Lake Shore Drive.
If you’re visiting the neighborhood right now and find you like its style, you might want to visit one of the many open houses scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Redfin shows 29 scheduled open houses within its definition of Boys Town, and hundreds more within the entire Lake View community area.
