South Shore is one of 77 well-defined community areas of the city of Chicago, Illinois, in the United States. A predominantly black neighborhood located along Chicago's southern lakefront, it is a relatively stable and gentrifying neighborhood. Notable former residents of this neighborhood include rapper Kanye West, software executive Larry Ellison, molecular biologist James D. Watson, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Many new residents from many of the city's former public housing structures and from further south within the city have resided within South Shore because of its unique location and accessibility to major roadways such as Lake Shore Drive.
