About Kenwood

Home to Barack Obama and Muhammad Ali, Kenwood is a culturally diverse neighborhood well stocked with fantastic restaurants, amazing sights and monuments, inspiring architecture, and some of the best shopping districts in the city. Admire the serene yet impressive glory of Lake Michigan, take a trip to monuments like John McGill's house or the Francis M Drexel Memorial Fountain, or have a game of catch at the Kenwood Community Park. Taste the best oak smoked barbecue in the city at Honey 1 BBQ or try inventive fusion cuisine at Norman's Bistro. Walk into the Blackstone Public Library and admire any of the four murals painted by Oliver Grover. Kenwood neatly combines history with contemporary flair and is a fantastic choice for anyone looking to move into Chicago. <br>

Pretty close to campus, about a 10 minute drive/bike ride. Seems safe, at least east of MLK Blvd. Pretty quiet overall, Maple Court is right next to an elementary school so there is some noise in the morning and when the kids are at recess. Hyde Park Produce is walkable, but not super close. Whole Foods is opening up at Lake Park around 51st/Hyde Park Blvd. soon. Large shopping area at 47th and Lake Park with Walgreens and Subway. Mostly fast food on 47th St. No bars, coffee shops, or anywhere nearby to hang out.
Hyde Park is on the rise if you like gentrified, bougie neighborhoods. There are more fancy restaurants coming to the neighborhood as UChicago bought out 53rd street. It's a good neighborhood for a college experience but I am speaking as a formal student. It's unclear how non-university affiliated folks feel about the changes as there is sadly not much interaction between the University and the rest of the community.
Hyde Park/Kenwood are diverse neighborhoods, which I view as a positive. I like Hyde Park Produce, but it doesn't carry a full line of groceries. Treasure Island and Whole Foods are very expensive. Safety is clearly an issue based on police and university police incident reports, but I feel safe during the day and at night if I am with another person.
It's a nice enough area, I've never felt unsafe. Not always a lot to do and there are few bars, but it's got a lot of good attributes and pretty good restaurants.
I prefer the short commute to school to living somewhere I'd have to wake up earlier. But HP is a little quiet, so depends on what you're looking for. More restaurants and shopping options are being added really quickly right now so that's a pro (Whole Foods coming soon!) but it's definitely different than living in a neighborhood in/closer to the Loop.

It's fine. It's convenient because it's close to the law school but otherwise it's pretty boring and there's not much to do. Probably the worst thing about Hyde Park is that many of the non-University apartment buildings are owned by MAC Properties, which is a terrible management company.
