Old Norwood Park is a quaint community located on Chicago's northwest side. It was one of several neighborhoods that sprung up after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Since the area was built up by private investors, it was designed as an alternative to the Chicago grid system, and was instead built it with winding roads and cul-de-sacs. This lends to a more low-key vibe, making the neighborhood very popular with families and blue collar workers.
Bryn Mawr, Petersen, Harlem, and Northwest Highway are the major avenues that cover Old Norwood Park. Most residents here have cars, but there are also a number of bus lines that connect to the nearby Blue Line or Metra trains. For those who do opt to drive, the Kennedy Expressway is just a few blocks away. Almost every home type is represented here, from apartments, condominiums, ranches, bungalows, Cape Cods, and Georgians. Architecture buffs can even find a few Victorians from the early nineteenth century. Presently, 6 homes are listed for sale in Old Norwood Park.
