This weekly program features interviews with Chicago Neighborhood Insiders – local experts from Chicago’s diverse communities.

These brief lunchtime conversations feature representatives of neighborhood chambers of commerce, local businesses and cultural organizations who are eager to share inside information about the history, culture and attractions in their neighborhoods. Meet the experts, hear their stories, ask questions, and you’ll be ready to Get Up and Go!

August 2
West Ridge, Devon Avenue

West Ridge and its eastern neighbor, Rogers Park, share a common border along Ridge Avenue, giving rise to its official designation and alternate name, West Rogers Park. Immense diversity characterizes West Ridge, which features thriving Jewish, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian commercial centers. The most famous is probably Devon Avenue, the heart of Chicago’s Indian and Pakistani communities. People flock here to experience its many authentic restaurants, shops and ethnic grocery stores.
