Goose Island Homes For Sale - Chicago
Goose Island is an artificial island that is the only one of its kind on the Chicago River. Formed by the North Branch of the River River to the west and the North Branch Canal to the east, Goose Island only encompasses about 160 acres, or roughly 1.5 miles long and just a half mile wide. In its earliest days, Goose Island was highly industrial and home to industrial plants, factories, and various warehouses, with its most notable tenants being People’s Gas and Light & Coke Co. Coal yards and grain elevators were also a part of the Goose Island landscape during this part of the late 19 Century, however by the time the 20th century rolled around, many businesses had left the island leaving it deserted.
