North Center was developed at the turn of the 20th century, primarily by German immigrants working in the factories and brickyards on the industrial corridor of Ravenswood Avenue and along the Chicago River. Because the riverbanks provided so much clay, the area was for a time nicknamed Bricktown. Chicagoans hailing from Eastern and Central Europe and from Scandinavia gave North Center its characteristic Old World atmosphere as they opened bakeries, butcher shops, cafs, green grocers, and delis and built modest brick homes and ornate churches.


North Center boasts many longtime residents as well as newcomers, many of whom have young families and are drawn by the areas history, character, and excellent schools, and by the amenities offered by luxury Chicago condos in North Center neighborhoods.
