Loved the homes in this and the connecting neighborhood. Will not mention the names of the homes that I seen; out of respect for the owners. Could not get to close to some areas due to Secret Service....and that was fine too.

Strolled through here on my way to a museum. It's a very nice and well maintained area. I was even able to enjoy an arts fair along the way.

Hyde Park is a diverse place with many landmarks. The University of Chicago, The Robe House, Washington Park, and Obama's home. Our walk on guide toured us through this area of the city. Definitely built up with the University of Chicago.
