Garfield Ridge

Garfield Ridge is one of the community areas which border Midway Airport, known collectively as just "Midway." Many immigrants from Poland moved to Garfield Ridge in past years, and since the 1990s, many Hispanics have started moving into the neighborhood. There is generally a large Catholic population, and the area is served by many Catholic elementary schools.

Public Transportation: It is served by the CTA's Orange Line. Garfield Ridge stretches southward from the Stevenson Expressway to 59th street, and from Cicero Avenue to Harlem Avenue going west.
