Galewood and Montclare are located just within the City of Chicago’s western limits.
Montclare is a Chicago neighborhood officially defined by the city as south of Belmont Avenue, east of Harlem Avenue, north of the Metra tracks (roughly parallel and to the south of Grand Ave), and west of Nashville St.
Galewood is not an “official” Chicago neighborhood, it is recognized by the city as part of the Austin neighborhood (light red area of map). Galewood is generally considered to fill the area south of Montclare and north of Oak Park.
The eastern border of both neighborhoods is Narragansett Avenue on our map, though Galewood arguably extends to Admunsen Park. The other borders are Belmont Avenue, Harlem Avenue, and North Avenue, with the Milwaukee West Line Metra train tracks separating Montclare (to the north, blue on map) and Galewood (to the south, red on map).
The corner of North Avenue and Harlem Avenue separates four cities, Oak Park to the southeast, River Forest to the southwest, Elmwood Park to the northwest, and Chicago (Galewood) to the northeast. Dunning and Schorsch Village. sit to the north of Montclare.
