"Railroad tracks on the right of me, gastropub on the left, here I am, stuck in the middle with you."
Nestled between Lincoln Avenue and Ravenswood, this short East-West asphalt street is dominated by chewy single family homes, with a flaky crust of apartments or condos on the Easten and Western edges. There are some loft condos on the east end across the street from one of those Ravenswood high-tech corporate office lofts. There's EL tracks running over a little playground, next to a million dollar house that's been on the market forever. Houses, some nice, some seem like section eight. Brick 3 flats, 6 flats. Then on the corner of Lincoln Ave, Quiznos! And across from that, The Brownstone. Sometimes drunken Longhorns stumble loudly from here. They have good tater-tots and buffalo wing wraps (the bar). Steps to the Irving Park Brown Line station, Stauber's Ace Hardware, Trader Joe's and ton of other restaurants and banks and things. Parking is tight. One problem with this street is that the buildings get smaller the further away they are. But if you walk towards them, they get bigger.
