Woodlawn is bounded by Jackson Park to the East, the University of Chicago to the North, Martin Luther King Drive to the West, and, mostly, 67th to the South. Woodlawn has twenty seven thousand individuals, living in ten thousand households. Over 98% of the population is African American, over half are on some form of public aid, and the median household income is over $13,000.

Woodlawn has made great strides into stabilizing as a neighborhood and community. There are many new hopeful developments and infill projects as greater education and more stable income slowly drips back into the area.
