Pilsen is home to a variety of galleries and museums, such as the National Museum of Mexican Art, one of the most prominent institutions for Mexican art and culture in the United States. Multi-generational mom and pop shops sit side-by-side some of the city’s finest dining. From off the beaten track locales to hip eateries, Pilsen offers a wide variety ideal for all.

Pilsen Real Estate

Thanks to its thriving artist and Hispanic community, with its outdoor murals and prolific gallery events, the neighborhood is undergoing a shift in terms of Pilsen real estate.

There has been a lot of debate and discussion of gentrification in the area, with the local alderman working to establish a historic district that would give tax breaks to Pilsen homeowners. At the same time, gut-rehabilitation and some new construction of Pilsen condos has been good for the neighborhood's real estate values. Many of the newly built condos are impressive in size and character, commanding a higher price than neighboring single-family homes with a little more wear and tear.
