Located on the extreme south side of Chicago, West Pullman feels a bit more residential than city. It was originally launched in 1891 as an industrial and residential subdivision, so the area has had its fair share of radical developmental changes and demographic shifts.
As for West Pullman apartments, single-family homes dominate the area, but there's a fair share of duplexes too. You'll find a few parks here and there, along with churches and community centers. Food options include a mix of chain restaurants and the south-side original chicken and waffle joints. By the way, it's hard to miss the 40-acre West Pullman solar station, which is the nation's largest urban solar-power facility.
The Metra electric district line, offering the quickest access to the city, runs through West Pullman. Bus routes give residents a link to the red line at 95th Street.
