Taylor Street is one of the most historic neighborhoods in Chicago. From the late 1800s to about the 1950s, this area was a hub for Italian immigrants to settle and establish their families. It soon became Chicago’s “Official” Little Italy.
Shop fronts, vintage side streets, and parks make for a classic paint out. East of Ashland Avenue is the hub, between Laflin and Loomis. Homes around Arrigo Park at Lexington and Lyle Streets are good subjects.
Great inexpensive sandwiches at Conte di Savoia. Restrooms at Starbucks. Street parking.
