  2. 2. Location and Brief History Albany Park is known as the gateway for middle-class ethnic groups Before the 1870s the land was used for farming and horse racing. By the late 1800s it turned into a suburban community due to the population increase in Chicago. The population was mostly jewish but after WWII many jewish families moved north, this caused an economic and social decline and attracted gangs and illegal drug trades during the 1970s. After the 1970s the neighborhood cleaned up and attracted many asian and latin american immigrants. By 1990s it had the largest korean, filipino, and guatemalan immigrants in Chicago It’s 8 miles northwest of Loop

  6. 6. Group Experience Highlight A major highlight that came out of this group project for us was being able to get together as a group and explore a new neighborhood that none of us had ever been to before. Throughout the car ride and walking up and down the streets we were able to talk about ourselves and get to know each other. It was nice to get together with a new group of people aside from the ones we hang out with daily at school.

  9. 9. Group Reflection Overall, we found Albany Park to be very welcoming and diverse. When we were walking down the street we saw families, elderly people, teenagers and all the in between. It was not the cleanest of neighborhoods on the main streets, but the residential areas were very clean and pretty. On the main street we walked on there were a lot of different types of stores, there were small family owned grocery stores, dentists offices, and some main stream stores. All the people we encountered were extremely nice and welcomed us into their community with open arms.
