Cabrini–Green is a neighborhood located in the Near North Side Community Area on the north side of Chicago, Illinois.

The neighborhood was named after the Chicago housing development, Frances Cabrini Rowhouses and William Green Homes, that once took up most of the area. The buildings were overrun with crime and fell into disrepair. Most of the buildings have been razed and the entire neighborhood is being redeveloped into a combination of high-rise buildings and row houses, with the stated goal of creating a mixed-income neighborhood, with some units reserved for public housing tenants.[1]
