Former artists' enclaves Wicker Park and Bucktown were long ago taken over by style-conscious businesses and the hip-seekers who support them. Today the ever-more-gentrified areas are clogged with cool clothing stores, trendy restaurants, and galleries, mostly centered on the intersection of North, Damen, and Milwaukee avenues and along Division Street; however, large retailers such as Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, and Marc by Marc Jacobs have also moved into the area, much to the chagrin of indie-loving locals.
