Renters’ Guide to Bronzeville

Home to the Marx Brothers and steeped in rich jazz history, Bronzeville sits on the south side of Chicago in an underdeveloped section that is growing fast thanks to its newly revitalized beaches, nature trails, and the 31st Street Harbor, which received a Fabien Cousteau Blue Award for its energy-efficient construction.

With Lake Michigan to its east, Hyde Park to the south, and Bridgeport to the west, Bronzeville offers a delightful mix of eager new business fronts, world-famous monuments, and classic Victorian Era architecture – in other words, it’s an affordable neighborhood for young up-and-comings to settle down and call home.
