Get to know Craigin

A Chicago community spawned from a burst of manufacturing and industry, Cragin is transforming into a family-friendly residential neighborhood with modest homes, landscaped yards and tree-filled parks. On the dining front is a throng of different cuisines. Get your pizza and burrito fix on the same street, or pop in for a Polish sausage or Asian noodle dish a few doors down from each other. Cragin's nightlife is limited to a few neighborhood watering holes, but that seems to be enough to satisfy the local clientele. Regulars like to gather at the Polish bars which you can't miss with names like Rzeszowska Club and Stokrotka Lounge. Cragin's Polish heritage is seen throughout the community in the independent booksellers, video stores, bakeries and gift shops.
