Origin of Chicago Neighborhoods

Neighborhoods are what make Chicago so special.  The diversity of our city creates a richness rarely seen in American urban landscapes.  Each area has an individual style, both architectural and cultural.  Here is an interesting article on the origin of many of our neighborhoods.
