Forest Glen


 
  

Neighborhood Description

Often referred to as "Chicago's Finest Community," Forest Glen is one of the "most stereotypically suburban" community areas in the city. Encompassing the prestigious neighborhoods of Edgebrook and Sauganash, this area is "separated from surrounding portions of the city and suburbs by a ring of forest preserves, parks, and golf courses," and the "monotonous flatness of the Chicago lake plain gives way to very attractive heavily forested and gently rolling terrain." Forest Glen further establishes its uniqueness from the rest of the city by breaking from the rectangular grid that is shared by most other neighborhoods in Chicago. Because much of the area is defined by the "serpentine wanderings" of the North Branch of the Chicago River, many of the community's streets are winding or on a diagonal slant.
