Riverdale is an industrialized community flanked on the north and south by forest preserves and a golf course. A member of the Calumet Regional Enterprise Zone, Riverdale has established two Tax Increment Financing districts as a means of attracting new industry and expanding existing firms.
Acme Steel, one of the largest steel companies in the Chicago area, is the village's largest employer.
The downtown business center has undergone a $17 million renovation and revitalization program that beautified the business district while retaining the historic character of its shops and stores.
Commuters to Chicago's Loop can catch Metra trains at either of two stations in the community. I-57 is a short distance to the west and the Dan Ryan Expressway is reached on the east.
