Thursday Doors – Old Town

Old Town is an area on the North side of Chicago. It is famous for many reasons but just one is Second City, the comedy club. There are far too many famous people who got their start here to list and it is still doing the same for comedians today.

The area has many beautiful old houses and was originally an area where German immigrants settled. It also became a hip or rather a hippie type area with cute shops and old dark bars. It is still thriving today and has changed some of the old for the new but still a vibrant eating and shopping area.

I did find some lovely old homes and a few doors to share.

This was from a portion of only one block. I really liked the two doors that mirrored the porch covering. Some of the space has been replaced with large new apartment buildings but there is also a lot of charm. Definitely worth a stop on your next visit to Chicago.
