Noble Square sits just blocks southwest of tree-lined, residential Lincoln Park and Bucktown neighborhoods, and blocks northwest of the bustling nightlife scenes of the West Loop and River North, giving residents access to the best of both worlds. Noble Square condos and homes are mostly walk-ups ranging from older and charming to newer and modern.
Noble Square has a laid-back, down-to-Earth social scene. With dive bars, Eastern European and Polish restaurants with patios and terraces, coffee shops with lots of character, and charming boutiques, locals have described Noble Square as "cool, but not pretentious".
The Kennedy expressway runs through Noble Square, as do busses down Chicago, Grand, and North Avenues and Division Street, giving commuters access to the downtown Loop area.
