Devon Avenue and North Park Professional Review and Guide
"Chicago has always been well-known for its multitude of ethnic communities. Taking a trip abroad just by hopping the El is one of the city’s great pleasures. What seems like half the city’s ethnic groups can be found in West Ridge, a neighborhood on the far North Side that is crossed by W. Devon Ave. Along this endlessly fascinating street you can cross the Middle East and South Asia in less than a mile. One minute you’re munching an Indian chickpea snack, the next you’re enjoying lox. In sharp contrast, less than a mile away, the city’s one nature center can transport you to a rural, woodsy retreat that seems almost as far away. And you can do it all in an afternoon."
