South Shore

South Shore is an African American neighborhood, located on Chicago's southern lakefront. It is a relatively stable and gentrifying neighborhood that has generally been long neglected. Many middle-class African Americans have re-settled in the neighborhood, restoring some of the most beautiful homes on the city's south side. Luxury condominium conversions are plentiful. South Shore is home to rapper Kanye West.
