Best Shopping: The intersection at North, Damen and Milwaukee Ave form the "fashion triangle" in Wicker Park. Local designers have set up a number of original boutiques, covering clothing and jewelry to worldly home furnishings. Bucktown sits on the hip of Wicker Park. The area is worth distinguishing from its neighbor because of its discount and antique furniture shops. The area is a continuation of urban boutiques and specialty thrift stores. Rule of thumb, if you don't know where else to find it, Bucktown is your best bet. The area is well-known for its arts and dining scene so after you're done shopping, be sure to hit up one of the restaurants.
