Armour Square is a neighborhood of Chicago
This skinny community is on the city's South Side, three miles from the Loop.
Less an actual neighborhood than a convenient academic grouping, Armour Square encompasses three distinct populations: Chinatown in the north, Latinos in the middle, and African Americans in the south.
Many Chinese residents of the city began relocating here around 1910. Due to racial discrimination, the services of a local company, acting as a liason on the behalf of the Chinese, was necessary to attain leases for the newcomers.
