Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including Nevada, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Chicago Park). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Chicago Park or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Chicago Park) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Chicago Park. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Chicago ParkOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Chicago Park.
