Delightful Latin community make for a colorful and vibrant tour through the neighborhood. Art surrounds you from museums to murals and street vendors selling fruit are from another place.
Chicago's Mexican neighborhood is a world away from the polished Magnificent Mile, and it's a ton of fun for precisely that reason. Great, cheap Mexican food and pastries, a terrific soundtrack in all the shops and restaurants, and the terrific National Museum of Mexican Art.
Feel the charm of street art in the Pearson neighborhood. Many people know Chicago, but they have never heard of the Pearson neighborhood in Chicago. In fact, this community has just become a "net celebrity" in Chicago, and has jumped onto the list of the world's best communities recently announced by Forbes. The most important reason for being on the list is the gorgeous galleries and colorful murals on both sides of the street. Even the founder of the well-known tourist site Intagare praised the Pearson community as one of the birthplaces of cutting-edge culture and art. The Pearson community is located in the Lower West Side of Chicago and is one of the areas with the largest Hispanic or Latino or Mexican population outside of Mexico. This block is bounded by West 16th Street to the north, Dan Ryan Highway to the east, I-55 or Stevenson Highway to the south, and South Ashland Avenue to the west. It can be said that the traffic is developed. In 2006, the Pilsen Historic District was included in the National Register of Historic Places. The community is an active commercial corridor where you can taste authentic Mexican cuisine. What attracts me in particular is the excellent works of street artists and muralists here. With the support of the Chicago Urban Art Association and the National Museum of Art in Mexico, they built murals nearby, adding to the history and culture of the community and adding to my journey. A strong touch of color. Some of these artists are unknown, and some are already well-known, but no matter how famous they are, their artistic creation does not distinguish between high and low.
