A driving tour of Pilsen

Joe Askins and I took a driving tour around Pilsen after having a look at Belgravia Group‘s Union Row townhome development last Friday. A neighborhood in transition, Pilsen has an eclectic, sometimes jarring mix of new developments and existing home stock (basically you’ve got a lot of shiny new construction going up next to not-so-shiny older homes). But the neighborhood is home to many of the city’s finest art galleries and some of its best Latino food. For North Siders who rarely make it south of the Loop, 18th Street between Wood and Racine and Halsted between 16th and 21st are definitely worth a visit.
