Living In East Garfield Park
One of our favorite things about the neighborhood is the East Garfield Park Conservatory. Here you can see one of the most stunning conservatories in America. It’s often called landscape art under glass. A true oasis in the city and worth a visit.
Located just 4 miles west of Downtown Chicago, East Garfield Park is in the 60612 and 60624 zip codes and a part of Chicago’s West Town. East Garfield Park was in the early stages of being re-developed until 2007. That’s when the market slowed and the neighborhood was hit hard.
These days East Garfield Park is on the rebound again. And, there remain some great bargains on homes, condos two and three-flats. East Garfield Park is located just west of United Center Park and north of the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290) which makes it easy to commute by car.
