Walking the 2400 block of North Burling, Lincoln Park

I've been walking many of the blocks surrounding Children's Memorial Hospital in Lincoln Park for over nine years to pick up my wife from work. No section sticks out in my mind more than the 2400 block of North Burling Street. It's a terrific mix of 100 year old grey stones and new contemporary construction homes living in harmony. It's not as awe inspiring as some of the blocks home to multiple lot mansions just south of the hospital. The homes despite architecture and era seem to have a good comparable scale...and that's what makes it interesting and more cohesive.

The last single family home sale in the past 12 months on the block was 2427 N Burling, a contemporary 1995 custom built home, for for $1,745,888 in January of this year. Unfortunately, I did not get a shot of that home this time around.

The turn-of-the-century variety still dominate the block and on the north end particularly.
