It's funny that you mentioned Stone Park. I actually knew it very well from the get-go. Why? Because back in my under-21 days, I used to go to this dance club called Energy Thursdays. And whenever I looked up its address before driving over, it always said "Stone Park". But outside of my own nostalgia factor, it's practically indistinguishable from its better-known neighbor Melrose Park. So no wonder most people haven't heard of it. Other than former Energy Thursdays patrons, that is .

OK, I'll play this game. First, it must be incorporated, which rukes out such places as Knollwood or Spaulding. Usually having no post office. Can have a small Metra station. I like Stone Park, Forest View, Golf, East Hazel Crest, Green Oaks, Indian Creek, Merrionette Park, Phoenix, Berkeley, Indian Head Park, and Kildeer. I eliminate Riverwoods because of Discover and Long Grove because of its antique district. McCook and Bedford Park are little known but have heavy industry, so rule them out. Mettawa, probably. It's home to some of the rich and famous, but lies in the shadow of Lake Forest. I ignored Campton Hills as it is rather new and could gain prominence.

Bannockburn is affiliated with Deerfield...not highland Park. Schools, fire, lifestyle.

Yes, it is very much so . The OP may be a little green (based on another thread about condo shopping). I wouldn't expect him to know much about the particulars you shared.

cheers

In regards to Bannockburn...

I was talking about something my colleagues said. They may have been from the city or from suburbs far away, and didn't know the local area. It seems like people here are very trigger-happy about throwing tomatoes at someone .

The Deerfield/Bannockburn connection is true, through. I know they share a ZIP code (or maybe used to), because when I received mail from an outside company, on occasion, the envelope or package would have my company's street address, but the city name would say "Deerfield".

I noted that Metra runs through a few but does not have a station. Green Oaks, Bannockburn, Hometown.

Ones I have personal experience with:

Orland Hills - I live here and I usually tell people I'm from Orland Park. Absolutely zero things special about it and it's basically swallowed by Orland Park and Tinley Park.

Richton Park - Part of the reason why I even joined this site. I could barely find any information about it outside of statistics. There is a restaurant I like there, and I was interested in learning more about the town.

Glenwood - Similar situation as Richton Park. When I went there, it felt like a more rural and less upper class Homewood.

Bedford Park - Very industrial and unknown for the same reason as McCook. Just one of those places people pass through, but never stop in.


Others include Calumet Park, Burnham, East Hazel Crest, South Chicago Heights, Manhattan, and Plainfield.

I think Plainfield is pretty well known, especially now that it's a much bigger size than it was twenty years ago (nearly 40,000 people live there nowadays). Hard to miss Bedford Park nowadays with all of those radio commercials.
