So, I had to take my mother-in-law to Midway airport earlier this month, and I was able to drive thorugh one of Chicago's outer neighborhoods - Garfield Ridge. It mainly consists of 1950s-60s single family ranch and cape cod houses with the main commercial corridor along W. Archer, which is mostly single story and (mostly) pedestrian oriented (with parking to rear or back).
It has been very stable over the years and is starting to gain popularity because of its location (next to Midway and easy access to I-55) and the quality of the housing stock.
The following gives you a good idea of the general composition and architecture. The neighborhood was platted in the 1920s (I presume) so the urban form is relatively "urban" (30 feet by 125 foot lots with alleys).
Here's an aerial of the neighborhood:
I particularly like this one - it's very original
Did I mention there are many immigrants in this neighborhood - Polish, I think.
