Driving down 55th and 53rd streets in Hyde Park

There’s more to Hyde Park than just the University of Chicago campus. In this third installment from my recent visit to Hyde Park I investigate what 55th and 53rd streets have to offer. Due to the U of C’s urban renewal efforts, the streetscape of 55th Street west of Lake Park Avenue isn’t much to write home about, but I argue that 53rd Street is the cultural heart of the neighborhood.

I’ll post the final video from my ride around Hyde Park tomorrow, but if you can’t wait that long, head over to our YoChicago YouTube channel, where you’ll find all four Hyde Park videos.
