Chicago - Neighborhoods (Chapter)
This is the Neighborhoods chapter from Lonely Planet’s Chicago guidebook.
Chicago prides itself on being a ‘city of neighborhoods,’ each one marked by its own look, feel and foods. Ethnicity characterizes many areas: enticing fragrances waft from varied home grounds in the city’s vibrant Mexican, Polish, Chinese, Puerto Rican, Vietnamese and Indian communities.
