Get to Know Pilsen

The center of the Pilsen neighborhood is at 18th and Halsted. This is a vibrant family neighborhood with character, art, great food and surprisingly reasonable housing.

Located on Chicago's near Southwest Side, Pilsen was originally inhabited by Czech immigrants, who named the district after the second largest city in their homeland. The Czechs were eventually replaced by Germans, who were replaced in turn by Irish and Poles. Today it is a growing neighborhood with a wonderful diversity of cultures, with many colorful restaurants, bakeries and shops.

What to do in Pilsen

Close to the Loop (Chicago's downtown) and the world-famous Chinatown, residents don't have to go far to experience the finer offerings in Chicago.

However, the neighborhood itself has a strong art community, a result of reasonable rents, which are slowly rising. It is also home to the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum. With its many artists and easy location, Pilsen is a popular destination for gallery walks and art shows.

Pilsen's Distinctive Housing

Pilsen offers mainly multi-unit housing dating from the late 1800s to post-World War II.
