Henry C. Palmisano Nature Park
Palmisano is a case study in urban renewal: a limestone quarry turned landfill turned park, features a hiking/jogging trail, fishing pond, and impressive views of the Chicago skyline.
Hidden gem, climb the hill for breathtaking views of the city. A prairie oasis in the big city.
Palmisano Park, formerly known as Stearns Quarry, is a 26.60-acre site on Chicago’s southwest side in the heart of the Bridgeport community. Beautiful urban park made out of an old Quarry. It offers a rare high spot view of the surrounding area and downtown skyline.
“Affordable Coffee spot with awesome snacks and without the pretense. This is in the Beautiful Bridgeport neighborhood, just north west of the BNB which has a Low Key art scene and nightlife along Morgan and Halsted Streets ( between 31st-35th streets). Maria's and Kimski- a Korean Polish Fusion joint. Bernice's, Mitchell's...”
“One of the oldest establishments in the neighborhood. I bet you've never experience brunch while someone is playing the organ and singing the hymns. Try out their Sunday Gospel Brunch. Big portions and amazing French toast.”
“Delicious and affordable wraps and plates with both meat and veggie options. Casual.”
“The local watering hole, and a great place to catch some local color, especially before or after a Sox game.”
“The flagship location of this locally owned coffee shop chain. Always solid coffee served, locally roasted in their roastery down the road, and they have direct connections with their growers.”
