The Low End is an area in the South Side of Chicago, Illinois. That particular area got its name from the fact that it was populated by low income housing projects. Those low income housing projects were later torn down and replace, and the place looks better today than before the housing projects were torn down. Though the place looks better, the Low End is still considered as one of the more dangerous places in Chicago. When referring to the Low End area in Chicago, some describe it as the 'ghetto' or 'hood'.
The areas that are included in the Low End will vary depending on who's answering, but many individuals consider the Low End to start on the east side of Washington Park and runs north-south, between cottage grove/state street and east-west from around 55th/47th toward Roosevelt.
