West Pullman, on Chicago's far South Side, was once a thriving residential, industrial district. But as jobs and populations shifted, the neighborhoods was victimized by predatory lenders. In the 1980s, its residents lost both industrial and professional jobs, making unemployment the community's single biggest problem. Additionally, the numerous factories that had closed in West Pullman left a toxic legacy behind. Lead from the paint factories and contaminants from other factories created health problems for residents and led to the designation of part of the industrial district as an EPA brownfield.
The city, the federal government, and private investors, thanks to the ongoing efforts of neighborhood and community organizations, have finally begun to correct some of the intentional and accidental harm done to the community, with measures that include cleaning up toxic wastes and recruiting new industries and businesses. As they do, West Pullman continues to be a large community area rich with institutions and marked by economic diversity.
