Beverly

Beverly is one of the 77 community areas of Chicago, Illinois, on the South Side at the southwestern edge of the city. The borders are 87th Street on the north; Beverly Avenue, Hale Avenue and Vincennes Road on the east; 107th Street on the south; and Francisco Avenue and Western Avenue on the west. Sparsely settled until the late 19th century, Beverly was developed by business interests from Chicago, encouraged by the completion in 1889 of the Rock Island Railroad suburban line that runs parallel with the eastern edge of the Blue Island ridge. Its position on the ridge allowed the community to become an exclusive streetcar suburb, and the homes and large lots reflect this. (Source: Wikipedia)
