Paseo Boricua, aka the Puerto Rican Passage, is a half-mile-long stretch of Division St stuffed with Puerto Rican shops and restaurants. It’s marked at either end by a 45-ton, steel Puerto Rican flag sculpture that arches over the road; the eastern flag stands near Western Ave, while the western one is at Mozart Ave.

This area has long been the epicenter of Chicago’s 103,000-strong Puerto Rican community.
