The Lincoln Square neighborhood (Community Area 04) began as a German American community in the 1840s. The commercial heart or “neighborhood downtown” is located at the intersection of Lawrence and Western, and nearby Lincoln Avenue. The southeast segment of Lincoln Avenue just east of the Lawrence and Western intersection is home to a wide variety of restaurants and shops, and includes an arched Lincoln Square sign. Lincoln Square is historically known as a heavily German influenced and populated neighborhood, but also features shops catering to Thai or Middle Eastern cultures.

Lincoln Square (community area) encompasses the smaller neighborhoods of Ravenswood, Ravenswood Gardens, Bowmanville, Budlong Woods, Rockwell Crossing and Lincoln Square (neighborhood).

Lincoln Square is bordered by community areas West Ridge to the north, Edgewater and Uptown to the east, North Center to the south and North Park and Albany Park to the west.

Rogers Park is kiddie corner to the northeast, Lake View is kiddie corner to the southeast, Irving Park is kiddie corner to the southwest, and North Park is kiddie corner to the northwest (in addition to a western border neighborhood).

The east border of Lincoln Square is formed by the North Branch of the Chicago. According to the University of Chicago, Ravenswood is a subset of Lincoln Square community area; however, Google maps shows the Lincoln Square neighborhood within the Ravenwood neighborhood. Ravenswood is actually defined by Montrose, Lawrence, Clark and Damen. The borders of the Lincoln Square community area are not clearly documented, and Lincoln Square community area is often confused with the Ravenswood neighborhood [DEVELOPING].
