Chicago , perhap more than most cities, a city of neighborhoods. From the broad boulevards of Lincoln Park, to the arty avenues of Pilsen, each and every neighborhood in this city possesses its own distinct energy and unique charm. Each neighborhood is worth learning a little more about. So, every other week, we’ll be featuring another neighborhood on this section of the blog, and we’ll interview someone living in that neighborhood—Someone capable of giving us the inside scoop on their ‘hood!
Q: How long have you been living in Bronzeville?
A: I’ve been living here for more than ten years—I moved here in February of 2001. It’s strange to think that I’ve been in the same place for over a decade!
Q: Do you own or rent?
A: I own. I haven’t relocated since I moved to my house in 2000—I love it too much!
Q: Why did you decide to settle down in Bronzeville?
A: I was looking for a reasonably priced place in a quiet neighborhood relatively close to downtown. My Bronzeville home fit the bill perfectly!
Q: What do you like most about the neighborhood?
A: I love the way it continues to grow on me. When I first bought my home here, I worried that I wouldn’t have much to do in the neighborhood and that I’d have to go elsewhere for shopping and nightlife. Over the years, though, I’ve discovered so many cute cafes and restaurants and boutiques—it’s been great.
Q: Would you encourage others to purchase a house or condo of their own in the neighborhood?
A: Definitely. I really enjoy my neighborhood, and I love my home.
