Wrigleyville, Chicago Professional Review and Guide

"Like many urban neighborhoods, the Near North Side experienced a decline from the late 1950s through the 1960s. In the 1970s developer Seymour Persky brought new life to the area by promoting it as Wrigleyville—after Wrigley Field—and developing comfortable, affordable housing near the historic baseball stadium. Restaurants, bars, and theaters soon followed, and the area experienced a renaissance reminiscent of its growth 100 years before.

Today Wrigleyville continues to be known for its nightlife and entertainment, and is attracting a younger, eclectic patronage. The area is also home to one of Chicago’s largest gay populations. Special attractions: Wrigley Field, historic homes and structures, unique architecture, distinctive urban landscapes, and eclectic restaurants and clubs."
