"Great neighborhood close to everything"

Edison Park is the best location for getting the best of both city and suburb life. We are close to everything. Most of the neighborhood is comprised of city workers, school teachers, policeman and fireman so you really get a feeling of safety which is huge plus if you are starting a family. I personally enjoy that our kids school is only one block away and we have at least 6 parks within walking distance of our home. The nightlife is great because again right on Northwest Highway there are great restaurants and bars to walk to on any given night but if you are craving a club in wrigleyville we are only a 15 minute drive. We are 2 minutes from the metra as well as the L station which is a huge plus and we are right off the expressways. Since we are also right on the northwest chicago border we have access to Park Ridge and all there fine shops and establishments. We love to wake up Saturday mornings and drive or walk 3 minutes west to a little bagel shop with the kids and have breakfast and hit the stores and library of uptown Park Ridge. It really is the best of both city and suburb life.
