Hyde Park Overview
Hyde Park is recognized as one of the most integrated and ethnically-diverse neighborhoods in the US. Muhammad Ali grew up in Hyde Park, as did former U.S. Senator from Illinois Carol Mosely-Braun, and Chicago Department Store Magnate Marshall Field. It is home to the DuSable Museum of African American History, the Hyde Part Art Center, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Renaissance Society, and, very notably, the prestigious and highly-ranked University of Chicago.
Hyde Park is only seven miles from Downtown Chicago and The Loop. METRA and CTA Express buses offer fast, frequent service north to downtown. Easy connections are available to the Red and Green Line L trains, and the Dan Ryan Expressway, which always seems to be under construction, is two miles west of the neighborhood.
