An area in the Pilsen neighborhood has been dubbed the ''Greenest Street in America.''

The stretch of Blue Island Avenue and Cermak Road features sustainable cutting-edge design features.

The $14-million streetscape features a type of cement that removes smog from the air.

The sidewalk is also composed of 30 percent recycled content - the first sidewalk of its kind in the city.
