My den: it’s my sanctuary
Easy access to public transportation, there is a bus that picks-up right in front of my apartment, the train is only a 4 block walk.
The central art district is bordered by Milwaukee, Damen, Wabansia and North avenues. There many galleries in and above store fronts and the historic Flat Iron Building houses galleries of many
established and up-an-coming artists. This area is also the location of the annual Bucktown Arts Fest, every August, and the Round the Coyote art festival in September. Small neighborhood bars can be
found on just about every corner. North and Damen avenues boast smoky late-night music clubs (such as the famous Double-Door and the Blue Note) and cosmopolitan clubs, boutiques, and restaurants.
Bucktown also contains several remarkable churches, the legacy of early Polish immigrants.
Bucktown is also well known for it’s cuisine. Within one square block of my apartment, there are 17 restaurants and coffee shops.
