Roscoe Village has been called a "village within the city," and it's easy to see why: This quiet little area is home to lots of small boutiques, independent shops, mouth-watering brunch places, and off-the-beaten-path cafes and taverns, each with their own eclectic feel and classic Chicago sense of hospitality. 

Tucked in near North Center and Lakeview, Roscoe Village is bounded by Addison Street (to the north), Belmont Avenue (south), Ravenswood Avenue (east), and the Chicago River (west). Home to lots of parks and other places for children to play, Roscoe Village is also notable for its central location, which makes it easy to walk, bike, or take public transportation to just about anywhere you want to go in Chicago. 

Curious about what this vibrant spot has to offer? Here are a few resources worth checking out:

10 Home Projects with the Highest Return on Investment

As any homeowner who’s tried to set aside a budget for a home remodel knows, renovation projects can get incredibly costly, incredibly fast. And while plenty of easy, affordable projects can add a lot of value to your property, many homeowners also fall victim to “over-upgrading,” hitting the point where the cost of their home improvement projects outpaces the potential value of their home in an appraisal.

With that in mind, wouldn’t it be nice to know what projects were more likely to add value, before it came time to invest your effort and money?

That’s just what Remodeling’s “Cost V. Value” report has done for years now, cataloging the ROI for home improvement projects each year. HouseLogic recently analyzed all of the Remodeling data since 2002, tracking which projects had the most consistent long term ROI.

With our thanks to Lifehacker for compiling the information, here are the top ten projects for “long term ROI:”

Why Lincoln Square?

Lincoln Square is a really wonderful blend of old and new. Heavily influenced by its past as a German cultural hub, this neighborhood is home to the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center and Chicago's Berlin Wall Monument, along with stellar restaurants and bars like Huettenbar, where it always seems to feel like Oktoberfest. 

Simultaneously, the Old Town School of Folk Music, which moved to the neighborhood in 1998, brought a musical renaissance to Lincoln Square. Check out Laurie's Planet of Sound and the Grafton for an expansive selection of recorded and live music. And, if you're in the mood for something spooky, visit the Rosehill Cemetery, where the Oscar Mayer is buried.
