Chinatown
Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Chinatown Overview

America's third-largest Chinatown neighborhood boasts a wealth of authentic restaurants, shops, and breathtaking architecture. This culturally-rich Chicago neighborhood has experienced an intriguing and diverse history, and is home to many Chinese-Americans, artists of all kinds, and folks who want the convenience and excitement of city living at their fingertips. Upon entering this distinctive Chicago neighborhood, the Chinatown Gateway invites everyone to explore the community. Wentworth Avenue (Chinatown's Main Street) is surrounded by colorful murals, detailed exterior walls and embellished fa├žades that depict dragons, Chinese symbols and illustrations of early life in the New World. Of course, it doesn't need to be said, but if you have a hankering for some of the city's best egg rolls or wontons, this is your place. Teahouses are also quite popular and whip up the tastiest bubble tea concoctions in Chicago. Tucked in among the storefronts are classic emporiums, selling everything from jade jewelry and trinkets to Oriental fans and slippers. Clearly inspired by its strong heritage, Chinatown remains the Midwestern hub for Asian-American life.
