Edgewater is bordered by Rogers Park to the North, Uptown to the South, Lake Michigan to the East and Ravenswood Avenue (and neighborhood) to the West. Chicago's largest park - Lincoln Park - has is Northernmost border in Edgewater and runs all the way south from here almost to downtown.
The neighborhood was first established in the 1880s as a "resort destination" for the region, including the Chicago elite. Among the famous stomping grounds of the area were the Edgewater Beach Hotel, which used to stand adjacent to the now famous "Pink Building" at BrynMawr and Sheridan Road, overlooking the lakefront. (It was a "sunrise yellow" color in contrast to it's famous "sunset pink" neighbor that still stands today.
The area is home to many schools, both public and private, and includes Senn High School as well as the main campus of Loyola University.
Along Sheridan Road there are many high rise buildings with water and city views. Because the neighborhood sits directly on Lake Michigan, it enjoys some of the best beaches and views in Chicago.
Given that fact, high rise condos in this part of town are largely affordable and high-amenity! There are historical districts scattered throughout as well, and Edgewater is poised for growth in the next 5-7 years.
