"Griffith the Mayberry of Northern Lake County"
The first 5 blocks of N. Lafayette are a wonderful place to live and raise a family. Lafayette st offers a mix of incomes and home owner ages to keep the block lively and fun. There are blue and white collar workers on this street along with business owners and retirees. The neighbors look out for each other but not so much to be considered nosey. Many of the residents on this street have been here for 10+ years. I like the craftsman style homes from the 1920's that line the blocks. Lafayette st is close to parks, major highways and decent dining locations. Griffith in general is the perfect town to live in if you commute to Chicago. It is not rural nor noisy city.
