BRONZEVILLE—

Where Chicago - - NAVIGATE -

This di­verse South Side neighborhood blos­somed in the early 20th cen­tury, when thou­sands of African Amer­i­cans mi­grated from the South. The Mon­u­ment to the Great North­ern Mi­gra­tion com­mem­o­rates their jour­ney, while the Walk of Fame honors more than 100 big-name Bronzeville res­i­dents past and present. A bronze street map at King Drive and 35th Street high­lights for­mer homes of some of those fa­mous folks, as well as sights in the des­ig­nated Bronzeville His­toric Dis­trict. Af­ter years of de­cline, the area is re­gain­ing its for­mer glory with new con­dos, restau­rants and en­ter­tain­ment. Take the Green Line El to Bronzeville-IIT.
