Bucktown is a neighborhood located in the Logan Square community area in Chicago, Illinois northwest of the Loop. Its boundaries are the Chicago River to the east, North Western Avenue to the west, the above-grade Bloomingdale Line to the south and West Fullerton Avenue to the north. It is primarily residential, with a mix of older single family homes, newer buildings with edgy architecture, and converted industrial loft spaces. Bucktown is directly north from Wicker Park.

If your looking for big-city amenities with small-town charm, look no further than the adjoining communities of Bucktown and Wicker Park, located just northwest of downtown Chicago. An abundance of art galleries and street-side cafes serve as constant reminders of the art movement’s humble beginnings. Residents–once drawn to the area by chic Chicago restaurants, art galleries, and specialty boutiques–are now attracted by a remarkable array of property selections. Throughout the community loft buildings, century-old homes and three-story walkups can be found alongside coffee shops, taverns, vintage stores and churches. Home prices – once very affordable – have moved up in recent years. Prices start in the mid-$150,000’s and increase to $1+ million.

There are many bars and restaurants in the vicinity of Bucktown and there has been a large number of "teardowns" of the older housing stock – replacing them with new and large residential buildings.

There is a significant amount of shopping on Damen Avenue from North Avenue (in Wicker Park) going North until a few blocks north of Armitage Avenue. Bucktown is readily accessible on the Blue Line.

Bucktown gets its name from the large number of goats raised in the neighborhood during the 19th century. A male goat is a buck.
