West Ridge

West Ridge is a middle-class neighborhood located on the far North Side of the City of Chicago. Also historically called North Town, and frequently referred to as West Rogers Park, it is bordered on the north by Howard Street, on the east by Ridge Boulevard, Western Avenue, and Ravenswood Avenue, the south by Bryn Mawr Avenue and Peterson Avenue, and on the west by Kedzie Avenue and the North Shore channel of the Chicago River. At one time joined with neighboring Rogers Park, it separated in the 1890's over a conflict concerning park districts (known as the Cabbage War.)

Housing Stock

Brick bungalows and two-flats became the dominant residential structures in the neighborhood. Apartment buildings also appeared, but relatively poor transportation facilities in the area before 1930 limited the demand for large multiunit buildings. By the end of the 1920's Park Gables and a number of Tudor revival apartment buildings clustered around Indian Boundary Park.
