    A neighborhood on Chicago’s Lower West Side has been dubbed one of the 12 coolest neighborhoods in the world, according to Forbes

    The ranking was made by travel experts who dubbed the best neighborhoods to explore right now, the publication states. 

    Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood made the list for its “streets lined with hip galleries and walls decorated with coloful murals.”
