North Center, Chicago

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

North Center is one of the 77 community areas of Chicago, Illinois, located in the city's North Side.

North Center is bordered on the north by Montrose Avenue, on the south by Diversey Parkway, on the west by the Chicago River and on the east by Ravenswood Avenue; it includes the neighborhoods of Northcenter, Roscoe Village, St. Ben's, and Hamlin Park.

The Brown Line of the Chicago "L" has stops within the community area.

North Center was settled in the latter part of the 19th century and the early 20th century largely by Germans who worked in what is known as the industrial corridor along Ravenswood Avenue, and the large industrial plants along the Chicago River to the west.
