The part of Chicago that gets the least media coverage mostly through television and film, unlike South Side Chicago, the North Side of town and of course, the Loop in downtown for some reason.
Movies on the South Side Chicago: Barbershop parts 1 & 2. Big Shots (a 1987 movie in South Side of town where a boy gets jumped by 2 punks in the beginning of the movie.) Save The Last Dance (2001) where a young ballerina moves in with her dad on, yes, you guessed it, on the South Side. I never see movies that happen on the west side of Chicago. Yes, the west side Chicago is of urban decay, but so is the south side.
