Greektown, Chicago

3.3
Greektown is a dining and nightlife district located on the Near West Side of Chicago. It is one of many neighborhoods that make up the Near West Side and is a popular destination amongst tourists and Chicago residents alike. A place where old World traditions remain prevalent in the many neighborhood establishments.

Marking the continuation of Geek heritage in Chicago, visitors can explore The National Hellenic Museum, ride the Greektown Trolly, experience the annual Greek Independence Day parade, and feast during the Taste of Greece. Chicago's Greektown is the best sampling of Greek heritage outside of Athens.

Special Service Areas (SSA) are local tax districts that fund expanded services and programs through a localized property tax levy within contiguous areas. The enhanced services and programs are in addition to those currently provided through the City.

SSA-funded projects typically include but are not limited to: public way maintenance and beautification; district marketing and advertising; business retention/attraction, special events and promotional activities; auto and bike transit; security; façade improvements; and other commercial and economic development initiatives.
