South Chicago Apartment Living
During the 1900s, South Chicago was a working-class steel town. Many steel mills operated from South Chicago, providing many residents jobs. After the mills closed, the neighborhood declined, and residents moved to other parts of Chicago. Now, the neighborhood is quickly returning to its former glory. The former US Steel South Works site is undergoing an extensive redevelopment plan, providing better transportation options and new parks and shoreline recreational areas.
