Uptown borders three Chicago neighborhoods including Lakeview, Edgewater, Lincoln Square, and borders Lake Michigan to the East.

Uptown is divided into sub-neighborhoods Buena Park, Sheridan Park, Little Vietnam, Margate Park, and Anderson Terrace (North Uptown). Lake Michigan views make Uptown a sought out residential neighborhood of Chicago’s north side. Foster Avenue creates the north boundary, Ravenswood and Clark street act as west boundaries, Lake Michigan creates the eastern boundary, and Irving Park Road and Montrose serve as the southern boundaries.

In the nineteenth century, the area now known as Uptown was not well settled. In 1861, Graceland Cemetery was opened in the southwest area of Uptown and quickly became a popular destination. Scattered throughout Uptown were farms operated by Swedish and German immigrants.

John Lewis Cochran began to develop areas of Uptown, favoring upscale mansions being built on the lakefront and multi-family housing options and more affordable homes in other areas. The business association of Uptown also encouraged other developments, such as the Riviera Theater (1919), Aragon Ballroom (1926), shopping district including the Loren Miller department store, and Edgewater Beach Hotel (1916). With the addition of such cultural attractions, luxury apartments and hotels were developed along Winthrop and Kenmore Avenues.
Today, many of Uptown’s residents pride themselves on their historic landmarks and distance themselves from its past reputation as an impoverished neighborhood.
