Bronzeville

Community Area: Grand Boulevard
Located on Chicago's South Side, along the main drag of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and 47th Street, Bronzeville is one of the nation's most significant areas in African-American urban history. In its heyday, from the 1920s to the 1950s, the neighborhood was the stomping ground of famous African-American musicians, intellectuals and artists such as Ida B. Wells, Langston Hughes, Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis. Today, Bronzeville is enjoying large-scale renewal as a new generation of residents rediscovers the neighborhood.

The renewed energy around Bronzeville is evident in the single-family homes and duplexes popping up along Prairie and Indiana avenues as well as a boom of condominium and loft housing in the area. Many of the lovely greystones and brownstones lining King Drive and surrounding streets have also been renovated.

Dubbed the "Black Metropolis" during the 1920s for its clubs, retail shops, music and publications geared toward the African-American population, Bronzeville today is home to a new generation of restaurants, cafes and art galleries that are reinvigorating the area. Restored landmarks such as the Parkway Ballroom, as well as public art throughout the community, serve as reminders of the neighborhood's rich cultural and artistic heritage. Proximity to Lake Michigan as well as downtown Chicago is attracting singles and young couples as well as families to the area.
