Neighborhood

Originally a Swedish community and later a stronghold of Orthodox Jews, it more recently has been adopted by American newcomers, from Latinos to Middle Easterners, Koreans and Eastern Europeans. It is part of the 60625 zip code.

Both the Good Counsel Province of the Polish Felician Sisters and the Evangelical Covenant Church are headquartered in this neighborhood, as is Chicago's PBS station, WTTW, in the Chicago Production Center. Two universities and a Yeshiva make for concentrated educational resources. The closest El stop is the Kimball station on the Brown Line.

North Park is in Jefferson Township, which was annexed into Chicago in 1889.
