About Lincoln Square
According to the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce:
Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood consists of the area bordered by Foster Avenue to Montrose Avenue, Damen Avenue to the Chicago River. It’s easy to access our great businesses by the CTA Brown Line, multiple CTA bus lines or by the Metra Union Pacific North line. Lincoln Square also offers metered street parking throughout its commercial districts, in addition to several public parking lots. Ample parks, bike lanes and public squares make our neighborhood friendly to both pedestrians and bicyclists, too.
Within in the Lincoln Square neighborhood is a small area that is the actual “Square” the focus of which is Giddings Plaza and Giddings Fountain. The square is comprised of two streets of unique and quaint shops. According to the Public Building Commission Giddings Fountain was constructed as part of the 1999 Chicago Fountains Program.
