Brighton Park Real Estate and Neighborhood Information

Get to know Brighton Park

Brighton Park has always been influenced by Chicago's transportation industry. It originally developed in the early 1900s when the railroad business was booming, which prompted the neighborhood to became a major hub in the railroad network. Today, with the renewal of nearby Midway International Airport and an influx of Hispanic American residents, Brighton Park is once again transforming itself. Building an identity as an enclave for Latin culture, cuisine and art, this section of Chicago is home to a selection of Mexican restaurants and grocery stores, and even celebrates traditional Mexican folkloric dance. Still flanked on all sides by railroad tracks and major travel routes (namely the Orange Line "El" and the Stevenson Highway), Brighton Park is just a short hop, skip and train ride away from the downtown Loop.
