West Garfield Park Apartments

Bringing you quality West Garfield Park apartments to call your new home.

Annexed to Chicago in 1869, West Garfield Park borders Humboldt Park, North Lawndale to the south, East Garfield Park, and Austin to the West. Known for being the 26th community in Chicago, West Garfield Park used to be home to Scandinavian and Irish immigrants who settled there in the 1870’s, and has since become a working class neighborhood. West Garfield Park is part of the Chicago North side, which contains many affluent up-and-coming neighborhoods. West Garfield Park’s short distance to downtown Chicago has piqued the interest of both business owners and developers, yet still boasts affordable apartment options for young working singles and families just starting out.
