While Galewood and Montclare are within Chicago’s city limits, most of the area shares the 60707 zip code with west suburban Elmwood Park. 60707 is the only Chicago zip code not starting with “606.″ This creates much confusion, as many online maps and computer databases do not reflect the proper zip codes. Galewood/Montclare residents are used to getting suburban election mail and being told by telemarketers that we live in Elmwood Park, to which we reply, “tell that to the City of Chicago tax assessor.”
60707 covers all of Galewood and Elmwood Park, plus Montclare south of Diversey and the corner of the Dunning neighborhood south of Belmont.
60634 covers Montclare north of Diversey plus most of Dunning/Schorsch Village and northern Belmont/Cragin neighborhoods.
60639 covers the Belmont/Cragin and Austin neighborhoods east of Narragansett, between Diversey and North.
Other area codes in the area include 60635 (River Forest), 60302 (Oak Park), and 60651 (Chicago’s Austin neighborhood south of North Ave.)
