It is part of Chicago. The zip code is a 606**. Furthermore, if look at the street view you will notice a green street light pole with green street signs. No question it is part of Chicago,Illinois.

This is yet another reason not to trust Google maps.

True, when using street view the city is often wrong.

Avenue A is AKA State Line Road. Houses on the east side are in Hammond, houses on the west side are in Chicago. An even-numbered house would be on the west side (that is, Chicago), though to look at Google Maps the entire street falls on the Hammond side. Google Maps doesn't really seem to know precisely where the boundary line is between Illinois and Indiana. If you were to believe Google Maps, half the Lansing Country Club golf course is in Indiana.
