South Chicago From steel town to green town
In the 1950s, South Chicago was steel town. That's when the U.S. Steel Southworks employed 130,000 people at the height of its business. But today South Chicago is green town. If you visit in May, when the neighborhood hosts the Green Summit, you'll get to explore a showcase for urban green innovation in Chicago. But South Chicago is not without its old fashioned perennial favorites. Stroll down Commercial Avenue and sample the homemade ice cream at El Potrillo. Head over to the 95th Street Bridge where the Blues Brothers movie was filmed and enjoy the famous fried shrimp at Calumet Fisheries. Crown your tour with a visit to Calumet Park where 200 acres host volleyball, swimming and the S. E. Chicago Historical Society.
