Ukrainian Village

Ukrainian Village

The Ukrainian Village is a Chicago neighborhood located in the west town neighborhood of Chicago. Its boundaries are Division Street to the north, Grand Avenue to the south, Western Avenue to the west, and Damen Avenue to the east. The Ukrainian Village is located south of Wicker Park, west of Noble Square and north west from the Loop.

By the 1930s, there were five Ukrainian parishes dotting Chicago's neighborhoods, including some in the Byzantine-Slavonic style of St. Nicholas Cathedral. Built between November 1913 and January 1915, St. Nicholas is in the heart of the Ukrainian neighborhood. This neighborhood, northwest of the Loop, was first settled by Polish and Slovak immigrants, but with the rise of Ukrainian nationalism and the influx of political refugees during World War I, it assumed a Ukrainian cultural identity which lingers to this day.

At the beginning of 2016, Chicago's Ukrainian Village has just been named the hottest neighborhood in the US by Redfin real estate--a real estate company based in Seattle. This consideration was based on the Ukrainian Village's fantastic location and wide range of housing options from historic to new construction. Also its character along with many areas having Landmark designation that put the neighborhood at the top of the national list. The "Village" is filled with several great bars and new restaurants like: Whisk, Forbidden Root, Roots Pizza, Cleo's, High Dive, The WInchester, A Tavola, Leghorn chicken, Bite, Smoke Daddys, Mirai Sushi, the Cotton duck among others.
