BEV­ERLY/MOR­GAN PARK—

Where Chicago - - NAVIGATE -

Sur­rounded by the flat­land of the city, these ad­ja­cent far south­west side neigh­bor­hoods are no­table for their lo­ca­tion atop an ac­tual hill. In the late 19th cen­tury, wealthy Chicagoans built lav­ish res­i­dences here to es­cape the city bus­tle. Many his­toric homes still stand, in­clud­ing the iconic Givins House (10244 S. Long­wood Drive), a replica Ir­ish cas­tle built in 1886. These days, the neighborhood is largely Ir­ish and African-Amer­i­can and boasts a thriv­ing shop­ping and din­ing dis­trict. The cul­tural heart of the com­mu­nity is the Bev­erly Arts Cen­ter, brim­ming with per­for­mances and art ex­hibits. www. bapa.org.
