At the end of the 19th century, developers sought to turn land in nearby Roscoe Village into the "world's largest amusement park." But what evolved over 100-plus years instead was a residential area with single-family homes, tree-lined streets, parks, shops, small businesses and bars.

Today many Chicagoans are drawn to Roscoe Village's strong sense of community (check out the garage sales, pub crawls and brunch gatherings listed on their local website) and to living in a place that's in Chicago proper, but feels like a small town. Nestled in a cute, Victorian-style home, this one-bedroom, two-bathroom Roscoe Village apartment evokes that neighborhoody feeling -- just wait until you step inside.
