Basically the "official" map uses the Burlington railroad tracks as the north border. Interesting. Using this map, on the west end of the neighborhood there is industrial land where it "cuts off" what I say the borders are. One the east end it goes to basically 21st St before you enter more industrial land between Rockwell and Western. One thing's for certain, Ogden is DEFINITELY NOT the northern border.
I have seen the borders where I defined them in many places. Here are a couple of sites that say so.
Encyclopedia of Chicago
"La Villita. Situated between the Stevenson Expressway at its southern limits and stretching roughly along Cermak Road to the north, with Western Avenue and Cicero as its east to west boundaries" (When the Encyclopedia of Chicago states "Cicero" as the western border, they mean the Town of Cicero whose eastern border is 4600 west in that area. I mentioned that Little Village starts as 4500 west.)

Above's community map. Looks to me like the north border is Cermak.
