Welcome to Roscoe Village Neighbors, the neighbors association for Roscoe Village, located on the north side of Chicago, Illinois. Roscoe Village Neighbors (RVN), a non-profit organization of volunteers, works hard daily to ensure committed excellence in advocacy of quality-of-life for residents and merchants alike. Through the hosting of a variety of activities, including local welcoming receptions, education seminars, the What’s News in Roscoe Village e-newsletter, park and street improvements, school donations, pub crawls, other seasonal events, and the City of Chicago’s third largest street festival “Retro On Roscoe,” RVN makes possible the standard of friendliness and excellence that is Roscoe Village today.
Bounded by Addison Street (north), Belmont Avenue (south), Ravenswood Avenue (east), and the Chicago River (west), Roscoe Village is home to first class restaurants, boutiques, and nightlife.
