Albany Park is one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the
country, with more than 24 languages regularly spoken in the area. The
wide range of restaurants, most of them around the intersection of Lawrence
and Kedzie Avenues, is evidence of that distinction. Today you can find
a Korean barbecue house down the block from a Persian eatery, and a Mexican
pizza joint for kids across from a Thai restaurant, all serving their
ethnic communities as well as those who venture from other places.
