From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chicago communities

South Side is a major part of the city of Chicago, Illinois. It is in Cook County. This area of the city is divided by the Chicago River.[1]

The South Side of Chicago was originally defined as all of the city south of the main branch of the Chicago River,[2][3] but it now excludes the Loop.

South Side neighborhoods such as Armour Square, Back of the Yards, Bridgeport, and Pullman are where the middle-class residents of the South Side mainly live, while Hyde Park, the Jackson Park Highlands District, Kenwood, Beverly, Mount Greenwood, and west Morgan Park are where the upper-class people mainly live such as former President Barack Obama.[4]
