The Marynook Neighborhood truly is a 'nook' in Chicago, both in geography and in history. Nestled comfortably on Chicago's South Side, Marynook's boundaries are quite forward: 83rd St (8300S) on the North, 87th St (8700S) on the South, Stony Island Ave (1600E) on the East and the Metra Electric Line on the West (board at 87th St).

Joseph E. Merrion, a prominent figure in Chicago's history, is credited with the creation of Marynook, as well as several other micro-neighborhoods. Merrion served as the President of the National Association of Home Builders and is reported to have met with Harry Truman while under this post. Marynook, as reported by Lee Bey in his post "Suburbia Comes to Chicago," was one of the most ambitious developing projects in Chicago over it's five year span of construction from 1957-1962. In total, over 400 residences were built, with a vast majority being split-level Single Family Homes; the remainder of which being townhomes. With a lack of alleyways and very 'un-Chicago-like' curvilinear streets, Marynook stands out in its uniqueness. (Special thanks to urban Chicago observer Lee Bey.)

Statistics by Zip Code:
  • In 60619, the median home price was $190,000 as of October 2007, which shows a difference of 5.59% in appreciation from the previous year.
