During the day, there's no one there, so Golf Road is like an autobahn: people drive fast but orderly. I use Dempster Street when going west from I-94 late at night.
I've never seen a Golf police cruiser respond to anything. Morton Grove was out there this afternoon because of an accident. CCS polices the entire stretch between Harms and 294. Golf Road bordering Golf is unincorporated. It's similar in status to Forest Way Drive if you are familiar with the Winnetka/Glencoe area. Golf has a decent tax base. Property taxes there are on the higher end of the North Shore, noticeably higher than Glenview, but still a lot lower than Morton Grove or Skokie.

I'm not too sure about Morton Grove, but I know Niles, its neighbor, has a very strong Korean presence. There's H-Mark, there's Assi, and probably some smaller stores as well. Joong Boo Market is just north of the border in Glenview, though.

MillenialUrbanist, you are certainly right that as you follow Milwaukee (love the name!) Avenue northwestardly, you'll find the great Korean markets and restaurants, as you properly mentioned.... But take a ride westward on Dempster Avenue, from Skokie Blvd., and you'll see Korean restaurants as well. I think there's a Korean owned auto mechanic place as well, if my memory serves me right. As a practitioner of Tae Kwon Do half my life, I DO love great Korean BBQ. Honestly, though, San Soo Gab San in Lincoln Square takes my vote over their newer one in Niles area

Indian Head Park, Illinois, it's a very obscure suburb of Chicago. It's by Burr Ridge, Western Springs, and Countryside. It's a middle-upper class predominantly white suburb of about 4000 people. There was a first degree murder incident that happened back in 2011 to a Lyons Township high school student in a robbery(RIP Kelli O'Laughlin) the man who killed her, got 2 life sentences though. Before the murder incident, Indian Head Park was rarely talked about, and the suburb was just there, had no major significance.

Of these, only Phoenix and perhaps Dixmoor could be considered obscure.

Wayne, Glenwood, and Forest View are pretty darn obscure. If none of these sound obscure, then you must be an expert on the area at large. To an out of towner though, none of these are likely to ring a bell. I also didn't know about Crest Hill personally until I got a job out that way a while back. The only towns I knew of in that area were Joliet, Romeoville, and Lockport.

I know the overall area fairly well, have lived here my whole life, and before this thread I had never heard of Wayne before.

I knew someone in my high school (Oak Park) whose family moved from there. Yeah, for being in Cook County it really isn't talked about much.

Two more additional entries; Hodgkins and Burnham

Also, not an individual city, but there's an area on the far south side called "Arizona", I had no idea existed.
