Lincolnwood is a suburb not a Chicago neighborhood

20 years on the North Shore without going native.

The transition from the City of Chicago to north-suburban Lincolnwood is so subtle that it's easy to mistake the village for a Chicago neighborhood.

Lincolnwood's close-in location and strong schools contribute to housing prices that remain relatively high, with a median price hovering around $400,000, despite recent housing market conditions. Relatively high property taxes help to put a cap on housing prices.

In recent years Lincolnwood has become a bit of an ethnic enclave, with Asians accounting for more than 20% of the population.
