Green Line South

The Green Line south is a stretch of elevated rail that lines the western edge of the city’s largest green space, Washington Park, and it passes through a part of the South Side that’s rich with history and culture.  The 51st Street, Garfield Boulevard, and Cottage Grove Avenue stations form the Green Line South Corridor, and they serve the largely African-American neighborhoods of Grand Boulevard, Washington Park and Woodlawn.  Look closely, and one sees new housing, trendy new restaurants and even a squash center for youth – places that join the nationally known DuSable Museum of African American History as fixtures of a growing community that’s been a decades-long contributor to Chicago.
