Paseo Boricua

Area

in Logan Square & Humboldt Park

The Puertorican flag is the center of attraction at Paseo Boricua on Division Street in Chicago, Il. The section known as Humboldt Park has a large concentration of Puertorican families living in it.

The Paseo Boricua, aka Puerto Rican Promenade, is a half-mile-long stretch of Division St where many Puerto Rican shops and restaurants do business. It’s marked at either end by an enormous Puerto Rican flag sculpture that arches over the road; the eastern flag stands beside Artesian Ave, while the western one is at Mozart St. Striking murals cover many of the storefronts.

The area has long been the epicenter of Chicago’s 103,000-strong Puerto Rican community. It's also known as Puerto Rico Town.
