In the article I linked in my earlier reply, there’s Asian population growth all the way down Archer until you get to Clearing. Generally speaking, though I think anywhere around Midway is going to be slower to attract the Asian population. You also have the population growing all the way down the southern lakefront to South Shore, but Hyde Park is the last stop with an above average (5+%) percentage.

Asians make up a plurality in Bridgeport. I can see it surpassing 50% in this decade. Mckinley Park may reach 35-40%( where Bridgeport is currently).

In other community areas, what I noticed is that Asians( East and South) tend to move in communities that also attract others, so less possibility of them forming a majority. West Ridge attracts Middle Easterners, blacks, Africans, and latinos too. The near west and south side appeals to the professional class and college educated, though Asians make up close to or at a quarter of the population in both.

There has been some movement of Chinese from Armour Square (Chinatown) to Brighton Park. This is a logical pattern, as Archer Ave. traverses both neighborhoods.


I'm in Brighton Park a few times per month, and have noticed a fairly large number of Chinese speaking passengers riding on the Archer Ave. bus (CTA route 62). Many of them seem to exit the bus at the various stops in Brighton Park.


Until recently, the population of Brighton Park was heavily Hispanic, as well as having some residents of Lithuanian or Polish descent.

I think Brighton park will be Asian. Kelly is already one of the high schools with most Asians. Bridgeport is already really Asian.

As a student of Tae Kwon Do, a Korean martial art, one of the Masters would take us to Koreatown, starting in about 1998.

Over the years, I saw how it became less Korean, as the Koreans started moving north from Lawrence to Lincoln Avenue, and then more north to the suburbs.

From what I read, their Lawrence Avenue heyday was in the 1980s. I did attend a few Korean Fests on Bryn Mawr, as well as in Skokie.

I came all the way from Milwaukee with several of my students, a couple of years ago, to put on a Korean Tae Kwon Do demonstration at Skokie's Festival of Cultures!

Manson Lamps, good day!

Café Orient 33? I never even heard of it.

I'm sorry to hear that it is closing, for you, however.

Manson Lamps, back in about 1998, our place was called Seo Hae Kwan. It was on Lawrence and... I believe, Central Park Avenue. It has changed hand a few times, and has been a few different things.

After closing, my go-to place had been San Soo Gab San on Western and Berwyn. Thant place started off looking very hole-in-wall-ish, but over the years has changed its look, both internal and external. Still, my favorite Korean place.

As you can see, Lawrence Avenue, in Albany Park, still is known as Seoul Drive. And there is still plenty of Korean-based businesses. However, I am not certain in this day and age that the residents are Koreans. But for what it's worth, it's as much a "Koreatown" as Taylor Street is "Little Italy."

Regarding Asian neighborhoods, Chinatown is truly a residential AND business-type Chinese part of the city. AND GROWING!!

Yea there's quite a few different groups that live around there now - I don't think it could be classified as an area belonging to any one. Definitely more of a "real" neighborhood than Taylor street though.
