Little Village

Little Village, or La Villita, is a vibrant community of proud Mexican and Mexican-American residents whose Southwest Side neighborhood is dense with businesses and three-flat residences.  The California Avenue station on the Pink Line sits atop California Avenue, and it is only a short distance from the sprawling Douglas Park, Mt. Sinai Hospital and hundreds of clothing stores and restaurants doing business on 26th Street, a shopping district that’s second only to Michigan Avenue in terms of commercial activity in Chicago.
