Located along the western edge of Chicago,
the urban neighborhood of Garfield Ridge
includes a range of houses
for rent. A residential area since the early 20th century, the neighborhood encompasses part of the historic Midway Airport,
the world's busiest airport from the 1930s through the 1960s. The popularity of the airport allowed Garfield Ridge to grow into a center for private and commercial industry.
The main thoroughfare of Archer Avenue runs through the center of Garfield Ridge. Home to a streetcar line in the 1920s, the street in 2016 showcases a range of restaurants serving everything from diner fare at Nicky's Hot Dogs and Midway Submarine to Cajun-style seafood, sushi, and Thai dishes. Residents of Garfield Ridge have easy access to downtown Chicago via the Orange Line train.
