Located West of the Highway and South of parts of Chinatown, Pilsen is nestled in the tree-lined streets of the quieter parts of Chicago boasting culture, color and history.
Young, old, single or married, the community you encounter when grabbing a bite to eat or checking out at the local grocery store is eclectic and unique. Take a walk down any tree-lined street in Pilsen, and you will find homes with character, family-run businesses, local shops and an overall sense of community.
Character and community run deep in Pilsen. You should know that the actual neighborhood is pretty small in comparison to places like Lakeview or Lincoln Park, but it holds its own. The people are passionate about their city and their homes and it speaks volume to the history found here.
Thanks to the vast amount of diversity and community culture, visitors will find vibrant vintage stores, small coffee houses and quaint cafes just a few steps from bodegas and restaurants serving authentic Mexican dishes.
One word: Colorful. Pilsen’s mural-clad walls, random pieces of street art, bodega signs and banners…no matter what it is, it has a vibrant color scheme that echoes the feeling you get when settling down in this neighborhood.
