Why you'd want to live in Hyde Park
More than 120 years after the 1893 Chicago World's Fair was hosted in Hyde Park, the neighborhood still stands as a profound corner of historical and social importance in Chicago. Hyde Park is home to The University of Chicago, The Museum of Science and Industry, and the DuSable Museum of African American History, making it an incredibly popular South Side neighborhood for locals and visitors. Nearby Jackson Park will soon be home to the Obama Presidential Center. Discover works of art at Hyde Park Art Center, grab a cup of coffee at Sip & Savor or Harper Cafe, taste test the brews at Hyde Park Brewing Company, or enjoy dinner and dancing at The Promontory. Relax on the lakefront at Promontory Point, where views of the Chicago skyline will take your breath away.
