Hyde Park/Kenwood

Just past the Loop and downtown is Hyde Park and Kenwood, the latter being former President Barack Obama’s longtime residence. Hyde Park’s cultural treasures include the Museum of Science and Industry and the DuSable Museum of African American History. 53rd Street is a major commercial shopping strip; 57th Street features lots of independent bookstores and coffee shops; and 55th Street has ethnic restaurants and friendly pubs. The historic Kenwood area between 47th and 51st streets has the largest concentration of mansions in the city, designed by prestigious architects including Frank Lloyd Wright.
