Ukrainian Village Neighborhood Guide

Neighborhood Overview

Just south of Wicker Park, this West Side neighborhood gets its name from the Ukrainian immigrants that occupied the area in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

A slew of Eastern European delis and markets, and a bit of lingering Ukrainian architecture pervade the area, but much of its original culture is beginning to fade with the gentrification of the neighborhood. Though Ukrainian Village has long since been known as a working class neighborhood, it has begun to take on overflow from neighboring areas like Wicker Park and Bucktown. Like many of the other West Side neighborhoods, Ukie Village (as some locals affectionately call it) has just recently begun to shift from a more middle-class place to live, to a trendy hotbed of new bars and restaurants.

As the remodeling of the area continues, many people are beginning to refer to parts of Ukrainian Village as simply the East Village.
