There are 178 official neighborhoods in Chicago.[1] Neighborhood names and identities have evolved due to real estate development and changing demographics.[2] Chicago is also divided into 77 community areas which were drawn by University of Chicago researchers in the late 1920s.[3] Chicago's community areas are well-defined, generally contain multiple neighborhoods, and depending on the neighborhood, less commonly used by residents.[2][4]

Chicago's neighborhood borders and even their names may change, but fierce local identification remains intact. In the 1950s, nobody would have said they live in Village East or River North, but now most know those newly named neighborhoods ... Who names neighborhoods? Often developers looking for a quick buck name them. ... If you try to find Wrigleyville on the official community area map of Chicago, you will be disappointed, as you will be if you search out such legendary neighborhoods as Canaryville, Back of the Yards or Hamburg on the South Side.

Despite the uses scholars and planners have found for community areas, they do not necessarily represent how Chicagoans think about their city ... Prominent neighborhoods like PILSEN and BACK OF THE YARDS are subsumed into the less familiar LOWER WEST SIDE and NEW CITY.
