What is the New East Side's claim to fame? It can count itself among Chicago's newest upscale neighborhoods, sitting just north of Grant Park and bounded by Randolph Street, the Chicago River, Lake Shore Drive, and Michigan Avenue. The New East Side leaves its stamp on the heart of Chicago with parks, highrises, accessible public transit, and a close proximity to many of Chicago's favorite activities. With just a short walk to Soldier Field, the Magnificent Mile, the Loop, Orchestra Hall, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Chicago's Theatre District, the New East Side offers the best of Chicago while also retaining a family-friendly community feel.
The New East Side developed over the last 50 years from an area heavy with train tracks and industry, becoming in recent years a beacon of Chicago highrises. Named the "New" East Side to differentiate it from Chicago's already established East Side neighborhood, this community looks poised to enjoy a long future!
Home to over 15,000 residents, the New East Side comprises a mix of new condominiums, high-rise housing, and row houses. Offering both affordable and luxury housing options, the New East Side is great for families and individuals looking for a sense of upscale community in the Windy City. With its central Lake Shore East Park and close proximity to Grant Park and Millennium Park, New East Side residents often spend time outdoors during nice weather, enjoying children's playgrounds, dog parks, fountains, and other park amenities.
Favorite landmarks around the New East Side include many of the parks that host festivals during the summer months. From Grant Park's annual Taste of Chicago festival to the free movie and concert series, inhabitants of the New East Side aren't likely to find themselves at a lack for iconic, enjoyable Chicago entertainment any time soon!
