NFT Chicago Kenwood


Many a 19th-century suburb prided itself on wide lawns and tranquil settings, and Kenwood was no exception. Though it was annexed to Chicago over a century ago, the suburban feeling lingers. These days, the architecturally-enriched neighborhood contains everything from the residence of Louis Farrakhan to the oldest Jewish congregation in the city, KAM Isaiah Israel.

Inquisitive urbanites will want to meander through the Little Black Pearl Art & Design Center and the Hyde Park Art Center, both of which offer classes, a swanky café, and a gallery. The old homes of President Barack Obama and retail capitalists like Julius Rosenwald and meatpacker Gustavus Swift add historical value to this community. With few close eateries, visitors may want to dine in neighboring Hyde Park.See more.
