With its antique shops, parks, playgrounds, and chic brunch spots, Roscoe Village is both trendy and homey. The quiet streets are the perfect place for a morning stroll and are lined with single-family homes and three story walk-ups. Roscoe Village's proximity to the downtown Loop makes it the ideal neighborhood for anyone looking for easy access to downtown's hustle-and-bustle but a quiet, peaceful place to go home to at the end of the day.
On Saturday and Sunday morning, spot groups of people enjoying brunch at one of the many outdoor patios, taking their dogs for a walk on the tree lined streets, or enjoying company at one of many parks and playgrounds. Roscoe Village has many high-end boutiques, antique shops, and coffee houses. There are also many dance studios, Tai Chi and Karate schools, and galleries, as well as smaller clubs that offer open poetry nights and live music to fill residents' hobbies. There are also many individually owned shops and restaurants.
Roscoe Village is a few minutes from the Kennedy expressway. Street parking is more abundantly available than in the downtown area. There are also several buses commuters can take to the CTA L brown line which goes directly into the downtown Loop area.
