The boundaries of Bucktown and Wicker Park are so fuzzy that the two neighborhoods are often combined and referred to as the Wicker Park/Bucktown area. The dimensions almost form a triangle-like shape with the Chicago River, Western Avenue and Bloomingdale Avenue acting as its border lines. On the very eastern edge of Logan Square, Bucktown once housed the working class industrial workers of nearby factories; but since then, these living quarters have carefully been converted into stylish, urban studios and condos for young professionals and local artists. And like Wicker Park and River North, Bucktown has a high concentration of art galleries, upscale shops and restaurants. Every August, over 30,000 people flock to the Bucktown Arts Fest giving these businesses an added incentive to stay in the neighborhood. Every block also seems to have its own corner tavern making this area especially attractive for the younger generation.
