City Guide
Bronzeville, Chicago
Moving to Bronzeville

Affordable rents and easy access to Chicago's Downtown make Bronzeville a persistently popular place for renters. These days, the neighborhood is experiencing some major community-driven revitalization efforts. Historic clubs are reopening, and there are a few charming little coffee shops and restaurants, such as Uncle Joe's Tropical Dining on South King Drive, that have become established in recent years.

How Much Will it Cost

Rental prices in Bronzeville are not too high, but that is compared to Chicago, so the prices are relative! It's a heck of a lot more affordable to rent in Bronzeville than it is to rent in downtown Chicago. When the bubble burst in 2009, rental prices took a sharp tumble, just like they did in many of the surrounding neighborhoods.

When to Begin Looking

You should give yourself about four to six weeks to find a place in Bronzeville. The bigger your wish list -- whether you need a three-bedroom apartment or a place right next to the train station -- the more time you should allow yourself.

What You Need

As with relocating in general, if you wish to find an apartment for rent, or if you're looking for pet-friendly apartments or rental condos, you require proof of income and current employment, bank account details, possibly a list of references from previous landlords, and you'll also need enough money to cover the first month's rent as well as the security deposit, which tends to be the equivalent of a further month's rental.

Bronzeville Neighborhoods

Different sections of Bronzeville offer a different lifestyle and feel, as well as rental availabilities. Check out some of the features of each area below.

Hyde Park / Kenwood: There are plenty of apartments available in this area of Bronzeville - anything from studio apartments right on up to premier apartments. There's a true mix of apartment styling, too, from Spanish Renaissance Revival to Art Deco.

North Kenwood / Oakland: Like the Hyde Park / Kenwood area, North Kenwood / Oakland has a ton of rentable condos and apartments from which you can choose.

State Street: Legends South on State Street offers one of the best places to live in the Bronzeville area after a huge revitalization program was undertaken in the last decade. State Street is likewise the home to the Chicago Bee Building, where the Chicago Bee Newspaper was founded by Anthony Overton.

S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive: Prairie Shores Apartments on S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive offers plenty of rental opportunities, from condos to rental apartments of varying sizes. The Apartments are also pet friendly, so feel at liberty to bring along your kitty or your pooch.

Life in Bronzeville

Getting Around

Bronzeville is one of the very few neighborhoods within touching distance of Chicago's center that is best traversed by car. Parking is also in ample supply. Compared to the high parking fees in downtown Chicago, Bronzeville has all kinds of free on-street parking throughout the neighborhood! Residents can quickly reach downtown thanks to the Green and Red Line trains which both journey through the heart of Bronzeville.

Keeping Busy

Although it's small, 31st St. Beach makes for a super place to have a cooling swim during the mid-summer heat. Situated on the southside, it's rarely crowded and offers superb views over the Chicago skyline. If you enjoy your basketball -- playing or merely watching -- then check out Fuller Park on East 45th St. This is where the more serious aficionados meet to play some ball. The streets get pretty desolate at night, so you should limit your live b-ball to the daytime. To enjoy summertime festivities, band performances and sporting activities, visit the expansive Washington Park. While you're there, why not also peruse the DuSable Museum of African-American History.
