Heart of Italy neighborhood

Heart of Italy news

The Heart of Italy neighborhood is part of Heart of Chicago, which in turn is part of the Lower West Side, Community Area 31 of the 77 on the city's official roster.

Heart of Italy is perhaps a neighborhood, perhaps just a co-branding effort on the part of the half dozen Italian restaurants that constitute much of what's left of the Italian community in the area.

The boundaries of Heart of Italy are Blue Island Ave to 24th St, Oakley Ave (2300 W) to Western Ave (2400 W), in ZIP code 60608.
