Uptown is in Park Ridge. This refers to the central business district (shops, restaurants, library, Metra train stop, etc.) with the 1920's-built Pickwick Theater landmark at its center. Park Ridge adjoins the northwest corner of Chicago. I've lived there for years and sell real estate in the area for over 18 years. Let me know how I may be of assistance.
