Rogers Park is located nine miles north of the of downtown Chicago. It is bounded by the city of Evanston along Juneway Terrace and Howard Street to the north, Ridge Boulevard to the west,Devon Avenue and the Edgewater neighborhood to the south, and Lake Michigan to the east.
Like other parts of the US, the financial crisis of 2007-2009 hit the area hard, and many recently converted condominiums went into foreclosure. The Rogers Park rental market, however, remains strong, with rents up over 10% year-after-year.The continued strong demand for housing suggests that a condominium recovery may be on the horizon as well.
Rogers Park has a higher rate of residents with Master's, Professional, and Doctorate degrees than the state average. In addition, the rate of residents that work for non-for-profit institutions is almost twice as high as the state average.
The dominant educational institution in Rogers Park is Loyola University Chicago. Historic places of interest include Madonna Della Strada Chapel, the mother church of the Jesuit Province of Chicago (one of the largest Jesuit provinces). The neighborhood continues to be home to many Jesuit religious-order institutions. However, modern Rogers Park contains many different religious institutions. An example of the neighborhood's diversity is the historic Rogers Park Baptist Church. Founded in 1891, this church has services in three languages every Sunday and is made up of immigrants from 21 countries representing five continents.
The presence of its diverse array of students and academics from Loyola University Chicago and Northwestern University, just a few miles to the north, has historically lent Rogers Park a high degree of liberalism and tolerance. The community also has a high Internet presence. In 2007, the Web site outside.in named Rogers Park one of the country's "bloggiest neighborhoods."
Rogers Park has over 130 restaurants and has been ranked "very walkable" by Walkscore.com
The predominant single-family housing stock in Rogers Park is the typical Chicago bungalow.
