One of Chicago's northwest side neighborhoods where vintage homes on oversized lots are sprinkled among landmark architecture and modern buildings. Old Irving was established in the 1800’s, so this mature neighborhood has some rich history starting with the Six Corners Plaza, which is the central hub. Independently owned shops and restaurants with traditional Chicago favorites are nestled into the streets of Old Irving, including Smoque BBQ that is popular with residents all over the city. There are many commuting options, including easy access to the highway, the blue line and the Metra. Quiet streets and Independence Park draw many home owners to the area.
