The Ravenswood area is only minutes from Lake Michigan and Wrigley Field. It boasts larger lots than most Chicago neighborhoods because of the city's zoning permits. The mix of architecture is evident in the range from old to new condos and single-family homes.
Lillstreet Art Center is located here and they offer classes of all kinds including pottery, jewelry making, painting, weaving and more. A great resource for young and old alike, they represent emerging and established artists via their gallery.
