The Run Down

For this guide we’re hopping on the Brown line to see what we’ll find if we take it all the way to the last stop (Kimball).  Once we get off the Brown line we’ll find ourselves in Albany Park, a neighborhood on Chicago’s Northwest side that’s become a huge melting pot of various communities. Walk the neighborhood and you’ll hear conversations in Tagalog, Spanish, Hindi, English, Urdu, Korean, Spanish, Bosnian, and tons of others being spoken. This guide gives us a small sample of this wonderful melting pot of a community where we can find classic Chicago hot dogs, a 24 hr Mexican pastry shop, and coffee and cocktails all within a few blocks of each other. Here are the highlights.

Some of the city guides on Nande are free. Others, like this one, are for members only.
