  Neighborhoods of Chicago - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Despite that static nature of the community areas, Chicago's neighborhoods change as a result of gentrification and immigration.
One neighborhood might have multi-million dollar condominiums with a yuppie population and another bordering neighborhood could have an impoverished immigrant ethnic contingency with street side fruit and vegetable marketplaces.
Keep in mind that because of the dynamic nature of the neighborhoods there may be some neighborhoods not listed, and there may be some neighborhoods that have since changed its identity or name.
