Traffic & Commuting

Neighbohood Helper - Landlord

At ten miles, South Shore is quite a bit further from downtown Chicago than most of the city’s other neighborhoods. In some cities, this could be considered suburban distance. However, the commute isn’t bad at all. The drive is about 20-30 minutes depending on traffic, but usually doesn’t take much longer than that. Most of the commute (unless you take Interstate 90) is spent on South Lake Shore Drive, which is a scenic road that runs parallel to Lake Michigan. There are also public transportation options: numerous buses have stops in the area, and the city’s red line subway service is about a ten minute drive from the center of the neighborhood.

The South Shore has been called home by people like rapper Kanye West, aviator Amelia Earhart, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Aside from these famous names, the community is home to middle and upper class families. It’s one of only a few areas in the city’s South Side that are considered middle to upper class, with the other two being Hyde Park and Beverly. The South Shore neighborhood, which is officially a historic district and Chicago Landmark, is very diverse and has a large number of both White and Black families.
