An extensive amount of rehabilitation and upgrading to existing apartment
buildings is giving the community of Albany Park a new look. Bounded by
Pulaski Road, Kedzie Avenue, Foster Avenue and Montrose Avenue, Albany
Park is a quiet, tree-lined community with affordable rents and housing,
which is mostly multi-family. Shopping is available along Lawrence Avenue
and there are nine parks and playgrounds, along with two dozen churches
positioned throughout the area. The Chicago Public Library's Albany Park
Branch is located on Kimball Avenue.
