PILSEN – Little village – Heart of Chicago Tour
These vibrant and bustling West Side neighborhoods were originally inhabited by both wealthy and working class Czechs and Eastern Europeans who were bound by culture and not welcome in other areas of the city. In the early 1960’s the neighborhoods started to become Latino and is today home to some of the best Mexican food, art and culture anywhere. Located within Pilsen, the “Heart of Chicago” is Chicago’s oldest Italian neighborhood and The Little Village is known as “The Mexico of the Midwest.”
You don’t need a silver fork to eat great food.
