North Center got its name quite simply because it happened to be in the approximate center of the city’s North Side. Inhabited originally by a number of European groups, including German, Polish, Czech, Serbian, Greek, and French groups, the neighborhood has grown significantly and continues to become more culturally and ethnically diverse.
Evidence of this European ancestry can be seen in the architecture and building styles of the neighborhood. Walking through Northcenter, you’ll find quiet tree-lined streets, a multitude of small businesses and restaurants, and a number of parks. It’s the perfect neighborhood for raising a family or simply to settle down.
