South Side

Just north of the Wentworth Avenue District is Chinatown Square, the largest Chinese mall in the Midwest. Besides hosting award-winning restaurants, you will find an incredible collection of public art that includes zodiac-inspired animal sculptures and twin pagodas. The area’s signature piece, an enormous tile mosaic created by celebrated artists Yan Dong and Zhou Ping, represents the accomplishments of Chinese people in America. Rather poetically, the mural embodies the neighborhood as a significant gift to Chicago.
