Noble Square is directly east of East Village. The generally accepted boundaries of Noble Square are the Kennedy Expressway on the east, Ashland (1600 W) on the west, North (1600 N) on the north, and Chicago (800 N) or Grand (500 N) on the south. The name apparently refers to Eckhart Park, a one-block square park at the northeast corner of Chicago and Noble (1400 W). Its identity may be disappearing: realtors have been including its northern half as an eastern section of Wicker Park, while the southern end of this neighborhood has been identified as West Town since the beginning of the decade. Please note that this neighborhood is listed as West Town in 19th Century census.
