Best Answer

Lakeview was an incorporated town from 1887 to 1889 when Chicago annexed it into the city. People were living in the area from 1830. Lakeview's name came from a hotel built near what is now Sheridan and Byron. Walter Newberry of library fame, suggested the name to the owner James Rees. If you go to Addison and Halsted you will see the Police station called "Town Hall". That name comes from the fact that Lakeview's town hall was located there. Ignore the cute "Wrigleyville" name for the neighborhood. It's Lakeview!
