    Make no mistake about it, look to the west loop for where Bronzeville is headed. The same development team behind the development of the west loop is heading the Micheal Reese project. This so called problem on 35th can be eliminated overnight and it will be. School closings, repurposing of known historical buildings are all by design, you hear descriptions of Bronzeville in publications such as Chicago Magazine as North Bronzeville, or Near South. This is rebranding, for real estate developers who represent the selling of this area. I used to be a resident of the West Loop for 18yrs. and I see all the signs here of where this is heading. There has been 1.5 billion in infrastructure improvements, do you really think after 50 years of outright neglect they would suddenly invest in us at this level? By right if Bronzeville's story was presented properly and packaged the right way, there would be no end to the tourism potential.

Welcome To Haven Studio, A Free Spot For Teens To Let Their Guard Down

The doors are open 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday-Friday in the basement of Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist, 4622 S. King Drive. This is his first nonprofit and he said he’s able to combine both of his passions — music and mentoring.

    Welcome To Haven Studio, A Free Spot For Teens To Let Their Guard Down
    BRONZEVILLE - In one corner of the church's basement, a group of teens play a videogame. Other teens sit on an old couch bearny, laughing and talking. They are surrounded by recording equipment and other music-making materials. When a delivery man shows up with two large pizzas, everyone runs to grab a slice.
