The Neighborhood Of Forest Glen
Forest Glen is not a suburb; it is one of Chicago’s best-kept secrets. That fact is obvious enough to residents of this northwest neighborhood, but ask anyone else where Forest Glen is and they are likely to shrug and ask if it is on the North Shore. If you include Edgebrook Terrace to the west and Sauganash Avenue to the east, Forest Glen has more than 17,000 residents. The Edens Expressway (I-94) runs down the middle, with Forest Glen proper to the south between Bryn Mawr and Lawrence Avenues.

Stick to surface streets, though, and major thoroughfares will be hard to find. A Metra train station eases the route downtown, but by car the northern suburbs are more accessible than the rest of the city. This seclusion is what gives this quiet community its suburban feel. Large lots also contribute to the illusion, along with numerous forests. The community contains the Caldwell Woods Forest Preserve (among others) so that a deer stepping tentatively onto a lawn is not unusual. Count on raccoons wreaking havoc among garbage cans, too.

The community is over a century old and was started by Capt. Charles Hazelton, who after the Civil War founded the first of the area's many churches and built a home on what is now Forest Glen Avenue. His house still stands and is a local landmark. Newer houses are largely the legacy of the late Mayor Richard J. Daley, whose decree that city employees live within the city's boundaries sparked a building frenzy by public servants. Only the affluent can afford Forest Glen, so the bulk of its residents are upper middle class. Many of the children in the mostly white, heavily Catholic neighborhood attend parochial schools.
