About zip code 60609

60609

Zip 60609 represents the South Loop district in the urban Chicago. Located geographically on the map at 42 degrees latitude and -88 degrees longitude this Zip is adjoined with 60608 and is center of Cook County. The perimeter of this Zip is defined by W 35th Street to the north, S State Street to the east, S western Avenue to the west and W Garfield Blvd to the south.

One of the most notable locations in this Zip is the U.S. Cellular Field (see inset). This is a baseball park and home to the Chicago White Sox of Major League Baseball's American League. The stadium is situated just to the west of the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago's Armour Square neighborhood.

More on this Zip; the Sherman Park, the largest, most picturesque, and most popular park among Back-of-the-Yards residents and other south side Chicago locals. Having a circular lagoon makes this park worth a visit. Keeping fit around this area is really easy, with this Park having an internal gym and auditorium, no matter what the season.

Before we get into the heavier meals, we always like to make a stop in the heart of the neighborhood for some home-baked goodness. Central Bakery has been called the best Mexican bakery in the city.

Speaking of Mexican food, the neighborhood's large Latino population has inspired a number of Mexican restaurants to emerge in the vicinity.
