Pilsen for "Why So Red?"

I recently was asked by the blog "Why So Red?"  to do some collaborating, featuring the different parts of Chicago with Eastern European influences.  Whether architecture, restaurants, or just a good shop full of all your Balkin needs.. we will be working on finding them.  It will be a series of adventures and pierogis.  The first neighborhood we featured was Pilsen, named after the Czech town of Plzen.  Here we mainly focused on the handful of churches with various influences and Dvork Park in the southwest neighborhood in Chicago.  To read more, please visit the blog post.. but here are a handful of images, some not posted on the blog.
