    Originally a Swedish community and later a stronghold of Orthodox Jews, it more recently has been adopted by newer American immigrants, from Latinos[who?] to Middle Easterners[who?], Koreans and Central Europeans (Poles). It is part of the 60625 and 60659 zip codes.

    The Good Counsel Province of the Polish Felician Sisters is headquartered in this neighborhood, as is Chicago's PBS station, WTTW, in the Chicago Production Center. Two universities – North Park University and Northeastern Illinois University – and a Yeshiva make for concentrated educational resources. The closest stop is the Kimball station on the Brown Line.

    North Park is in Jefferson Township, which was annexed into Chicago in 1889.
