Welcome to the
DevonAvenue.community. This site is dedicated
to the Indian and Pakistani community that is located in the
Chicago area. As we all know, here in Chicago, Devon Avenue
is synonymous with the South Asian community. So what better
name to use for the site, than DevonAvenue.com. Almost every
Indian and Pakistani in the United States has heard of Devon
Avenue. Don't be mistaken, there are many people around the
world that have heard of Devon Avenue as well. Devon Avenue
is a street that is rich in culture. Devon Avenue caters to
people from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand, Croatia,
and many others. Sections of Devon Avenue have been given
secondary names in honor of the people that inhabit the respective
areas. Devon Avenue also goes by the names of Gandhi Marg,
Mohammed Ali Jinnah Way, and Golda Meier Blvd.
Historically, Devon Avenue has undergone a variety of changes
in its 140-year history. First built in the 1850s as Church
Road, it was renamed by English settlers for their native
county of Devonshire. Later, Devon became the main shopping
area for Chicago's Jewish community. Today, an influx of immigrants
has added spice to an already colorful neighborhood. Current
census puts the Indo-Pak community around 400,000 in Chicagoland.
This website has been around since 1999. We were the first portal to bring the people of the Indian
sub-continent in the Chicagoland area together
on the internet and always will be. Other copycat websites have come and gone. We're still here! We hope to be here for a long time, thanks to you. You will find a large number of
resources here on the website. Check back daily, as content is always changing.

able to respond to your needs.
