Pay no attention to that snow on the ground. Baseball season is right around the corner, which means half of the city is turning its attention to the hallowed grounds at Clark and Addison. Will Lou finally move Fonzie out of the leadoff spot? Who’ll erupt first: Zambrano or Bradley? Can these guys win a postseason game? The answers to these questions will reveal themselves over 81 afternoons and evenings (more, if the Cubs are lucky) in one North Side neighborhood: Lake View.
Some people who visit Wrigley Field this year will look around the neighborhood and think, “Holy cow! I could live here!” The NewHomeNotebook.com database lists just a handful of new developments in Wrigleyville itself, but by expanding that search out to neighborhoods like Alta Vista Terrace, Boys Town and Northalsted, Graceland West, and Lakeview East, you can find almost 70 projects in Lake View, constituting a mix of new-construction condos, converted high-rises and courtyard buildings, lofts and townhomes.
