CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOODS – PILSEN


Pilsen Overview

 

When you consider Pilsen homes for sale, you’ll find yourself in a vibrant community on the near southwest side of Chicago.  Originally, Pilsen was inhabited by Czech immigrants, who named the district after the second largest city in their homeland. Eventual Germans became the dominant ethnic group, followed by Poles and the Irish.  

 

The neighborhood today offers a wonderful diversity of cultures, with bountiful and varied shops and restaurants, especially along lively 18th Street, the main shopping street in the neighborhood.

 

The murals in the Pilsen neighborhood are locally famous.  The original murals along 16th Street started as a cooperative effort between Slavs and Mexicans when the neighborhood was undergoing ethnic change.  Several of the most recent murals combine traditional Mexican themes with those decidedly non-Mexican - storks, scenic European farms, and Lipizzaner Horses!

 

Pilsen is home to the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum, and is a popular destination for gallery walks and art shows.  The Fiesta del Sol takes place here each year as well.  The neighborhood became a National Historic Register District in 2006.

 

Pilsen Homes for Sale

 

This historic neighborhood has a large community of artists, attributable in part to the very reasonable prices for housing.  Many houses here date to the late 19th Century, and numerous homes have been restored to their former grandeur.   

 

Only three miles from Downtown Chicago and the Loop, commuters have a very short, 15 minute trip via the Blue or Pink Line L, embarking at the 18th Street station.
