West Rogers Park = West Ridge



City-sized media and trend-chasing real-estate representatives continue to try to convince that West Ridge is in fact, a section of Rogers Park.

The fact is, Rogers Park's South West borders are exactly Devon and Ridge.

To state it more clearly:

Any location South of Devon Avenue is not in Rogers Park.

Any location West of Ridge Avenue is not Rogers Park.




That being said, here is latest from the Chicago Tribune:


Chicago Tribune: Man dies after being found beaten in West Rogers Park alleyJuly 13, 2012|By Carlos Sadovi | Tribune reporter  
"A 62-year-old man who was found in an alley in the West Rogers Park neighborhood was beaten to death, officials said". 

While viewing the article I also noticed that the attached Google map even states the area as West Ridge.

I know some people feel strongly about this issue. I will reply to all comments.
