Friendly neighbors are free to disagree as to the exact starting and ending points of the quaint north west side neighborhood known as Bucktown. The borders are generally considered to be North Avenue to the south, Fullerton to the north and the Kennedy Expressway and Western Avenue on the east and west sides respectively.
Residents are also free to speculate on the origins of their neighborhood's unusual name. Some claim that Bucktown's early Polish immigrants allowed their goats (the males of which are called “bucks”) to roam freely along the streets, inspiring the rather humorous nickname. You're more likely to see baby strollers than goats these days, as Bucktown has enjoyed a resurgence as a family-friendly neighborhood.
