Pilsen, Chicago is well known for it's Latino/Hispanic population as well as it's beautiful murals. The neigborhood of Pilsen is setting a goal of being the center of Mexican-American life!  Being just 3 short miles from downtown Chicago, Pilsen has been a port-of-entry community for MORE THAN 130 YEARS!!!! Still today it is a gateway for Latinos standing at 89% Hispanic and 37% non-citizens.

Isn't that awesome!?! Your very own Hispanic neighborhood in Chicago 3 miles from downtown. Hurray!!!
