The Goosetown Neighborhood is in the north of Iowa City. It’s affectionately named Goosetown, because of the Bohemian immigrants who settled there in the 1850’s and kept geese in their yards. Goosetown is about a mile from downtown Iowa City, making it a very popular choice with buyers Relocating to Iowa City for the University of Iowa. East of the Iowa River, close to downtown is where you’ll find the older, period homes in Iowa City dating back to the 1800’s.
Goosetown is actually quite a narrow area on the map ranging between Brown St, (part of the Historic District) and E Bloomington St. To the left of it is the Northside Neighborhood and below it is the College Green Neighborhood. The best map I found showing the different Iowa City neighborhoods is on the City of Iowa City website.
