"It's a Ghetto for Gosh Sakes!"

There is nothing Lithuanian about this street, other than it's honorary name: Lithuanian Plaza Court.

The Lithuanian businesses and residents fled the street years ago. The last deli closed its doors in 2007.

Street is littered with abandoned, and burned out buildings. There's a drug ring operating openly on the north side of 69th street, between Rockwell and Maplewood Aves.

That "Little Lithuania" review is bogus from the day it was written.

BTW, 71st street is not much better.

"Come with me to Little Lithuania"

Located around 10 miles southwest of the Loop, Little LIthuania is located on a small strech of 69th street between Marquette Park and S. Western Ave. On this street are a variety of Lithuanian shops, delis and bakeries. If deli food isn't enough a couple of Lithuanian resturants are located 2 block south on 71st street. For everything Lituanian try Little Lithuania.

BuvusiGyventoja This review has been inaccurate since the day it was written.

The street, and whole neighborhood, is a ghetto. There are no shops, delis and bakeries: the last deli closed way back in 2007. It's littered with abandoned, and burned out buildings. There's a drug ring operating out of the north side of the street between Maplewood & Rockwell Ave.

The only thing Lithuanian about it is its honorary name: "Lithuanian Plaza Court", and the church on the corner of 69th and Washtenaw Ave.

GI You should be ashamed of yourself. Try coming to Lithuanian Mass at 11 A.M. Sundays. The choir is fantastic. You can have your bedroom community suburbs to yourself, I wouldn't go there.
