Young and upwardly mobile in Ravenswood
Here's a quick shot of a group walking back from the Damen Brown Line stop last Wednesday, north of Lawrence Ave. It's about 6:30PM... Must have been working late.
It's a good sign for neighborhoods when you see groups of go-getters marching off the train during rush hours. I wanted to take more shots, but even given some diplomatic immunity by walking my son, I didn't want to look creepy stealing random snap-shots.
Average two bedroom, two bathroom condos with parking in this area are well over $350K and climbing. Two blocks north of Lawrence on the 5000 N block of Winchester, a popular two bed, two bath condo building is catching over $400K with ease for re-sale units.
