Chicago/Far Southeast Side

Default Banner.jpg

The Far Southeast Side of Chicago is a large, mostly uninteresting (to travelers) section of Chicago with one large tourist draw: the historic Pullman District.

  • Greater Chatham (Chatham, Avalon Park, Calumet Heights, Burnside) — a residential stronghold of middle class African American Chicagoans
  • Greater Pullman (Pullman, Roseland, West Pullman, Riverdale) — home to the historic Pullman District, important to American history for its early planned industrial/railroad community and subsequent strikes and socialist radicalism
  • Southeast Shore (South Shore, South Chicago, South Deering, East Side, Hegewisch) — The once prosperous industrial region around the mouth of the Calumet River ("The Port of Chicago") that imploded along with Chicago's steel industry
