Pilsen and Little Village – March 22, 2009

Did a little photo stroll at Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood with another Flickrer, mmmmarshall.

From the encyclopedia of Chicago: Known by its residents as the “Mexico of the Midwest,” Little Village, officially a part of the South Lawndale Community Area, has over the past 35 years joined Pilsen as a point of entry for Latino immigrants to Chicago. A gateway on 26th Street proclaims “Bienvenidos a Little Village.”
