What are the 'nicer' areas of Forest Park? What areas should I avoid buying in? We are a lesbian couple that love our home in Oak Park (and we love Oak Park in general) but tax hike is making us rethink OP....considering a move to FP next year.

Love the cobblestone streets (Lathrop?) and the leafy tree-lined streets with older architecturally interesting homes, ideally within walking distance to Madison Street & the trains (Harlem metra or Blue Line). Not sure what these areas are called tho.

Any streets or areas of FP that people can recommend? Areas to avoid? Thanks!

north of the Eisenhower is probably a better choice all-around... the best section being the blocks immediately north and south of Jackson on the streets west of Circle. Better single-family housing and fewer apartment buildings.
