Neighborhood Tours

Humboldt Park

Located on the northwest side of Chicago, Humboldt Park is the center of Puerto Rican culture in perhaps the entire midwest. This tour highlights Mercado del Pueblo as the must-see local business, Nellie's Restaurant as the quintessential eatery, Urban Theater Company for culturally-informed entertainment, the Puerto Rican Cultural Center for neighborhood advocacy, and Humboldt Park as the crowned outdoor space. To get to Humboldt Park from the University’s campus, take the Green Line towards Harlem/Lake and transfer to the Blue Line (towards O’Hare) at the Clark/Lake stop. Get off the Blue Line at Division, and go west along Division Street to get into the heart of the Humboldt Park neighborhood. This tour can be completed as a self-guided walking tour, or virtually from the comfort of your home.
