The Humboldt Park community is one of the 77 residential neighborhoods located in Chicago’s Westside. Since the 1960’s, Humboldt Park has been the home of a large Hispanic/Latino population, with a vibrant Puerto Rican presence. Various street art can be found along “El Paseo Boricua”. El Paseo Boricua is the name given to the section of Division Street that is west of Western Avenue, and East of California Avenue. For many locals the beginning and end of the strip is marked by the large iron and steel flags, that pay homage to their native island of Puerto Rico. Along El Paseo Boricua, are a series of local businesses ranging from groceries, beauty supplies, convenient stores, and restaurants. Also located on the strip is the Puerto Rican Cultural Center, and just a few blocks away is The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture. The appropriation of space in the city of Chicago was earned through withstanding racial prejudices, political activism, and a strong community presence that has spanned generations.
