Avondale aka Jackowo is one of 77 officially designated Chicago, Illinois community areas. It is located on the Northwest Side of Chicago. Its main borders are the North Branch of the Chicago River, Diversey Avenue, Addison Street, Pulaski Road and the Union Pacific/Northwest rail line; bisecting the community are Belmont and Milwaukee Avenues along with the Kennedy Expressway (Interstate 90/Interstate 94). Located directly north of the Logan Square neighborhood, it is also accessible through the Belmont and Logan Square stations of the CTA Blue Line.

An early racially-integrated suburb, Avondale became part of Chicago when the city annexed the Town of Jefferson in 1889. Factories that sprang up around the turn of the century by the railroads were responsible for the initial wave of European immigrants, mostly Germans, Scandinavians and Poles. This quiet, blue-collar neighborhood had an increase in the Hispanic population from 37.6% in 1990 to 62.0% in 2000.[1] Avondale was the site of one of Chicago's Seven Lost Wonders, the Olson Park and Waterfall complex at Diversey and Pulaski.

Jackowo, is one of Chicago's largest and most vibrant 'Polish Patches'. The neighborhood gets its name from Saint Hyacinth's Basilica (Bazylika Św. Jacka), the local Catholic parish church, at 3636 West Wolfram Street.

Milwaukee Avenue is the main strip with dozens of sausage shops, restaurants, bakeries etc. This area is also referred to as the Polish Village - a name featured on signs hung on street lamps over the district. Pulaski Avenue, named after the Polish Revolutionary War hero, runs through the area.

The Polish community of Jackowo appeared in late 19th century and early 20th century, when hundreds of Poles settled there and began working in local factories. The neighborhood experienced its heyday as the cultural nexus of Chicago's Polonia during the 1980's and 90's with the so-called Solidarity and Post-Solidarity waves of Polish migration to Chicago, including a number of political refugees. Although today much of the Polish diaspora has moved out to more upscale neighborhoods and other immigrants from Latin America or from the former Soviet Bloc, such as Ukrainians and Czechs have moved in, the area still retains much of its Polish character. Like neighboring Logan Square, the neighborhood is also experiencing gentrification as artists and Yuppies move their way northwest along Milwaukee Avenue.
