Welcome to The Heart of Chicago

The Heart of Chicago organization is a service to the community to promote economic growth and stability along South Oakley Avenue. Mostly known for its old world Italian restaurants, it’s also home to eclectic architecture, industries, close-knit churches, ethnic history and an emerging art scene.

This organization was inspired by the innovative culture and rich heritage of Tuscany, the iconic region in Italy known of its food, wine, art, galleries, architecture, vineyards, landscape, coastline and home to the start of the European Renaissance.
