The Neighborhood Of Albany Park
Albany Park was and has remained a port-of-entry for new arrivals from around the globe. According to 1990 U.S. Census figures, the area is 26 percent Asian, 31 percent Hispanic and 12 percent Arab. The remaining residents primarily are white, of European descent. Approximately 47 percent of the area's population was born in another country.

People of different cultures have been making Albany Park their second home since 1907, when the Ravenswood El began to bring development to the sparsely populated neighborhood around Kimball and Lawrence avenues.

The stretch of Lawrence Avenue through Albany Park, the heart of the neighborhood, was renamed “Seoul Drive” because of its many Korean-owned businesses. At a local music store you’ll find popular Middle-Eastern artists, and visitors can enjoy Palestinian and Korean bakeries in Albany Park. The sounds of different languages and types of music make the streets come alive. In this way, Albany Park can be welcoming, instructive, and world-broadening.

As if that weren’t enough to draw interest, the neighborhood is also bordered by the Chicago River, providing scenic and peaceful spots in the surrounding park area.

Albany Park’s developers and community organizations are hoping that more middle-class people will move into Albany Park, an area roughly bounded by Pulaski Road and Kedzie, Foster, and Montrose Avenues, where housing stock is relatively good. The community's location, the last stop on the CTA rapid transit's Brown Line, makes it the next natural spot for redevelopment.
