Phoenix, IL is pretty obscure to me. Very small south suburb.

And to add onto that, not a suburb, but there's also a neighborhood in the far south side of Chicago named "Arizona", which is not too far from Phoenix the suburb.

There's also the neighborhood of Scottsdale, a little farther west.

That's interesting! Phoenix, AZ was established in 1881, and Scottsdale, AZ was established in 1951. Most south suburbs are older than that; they grew up around the Illinois Central line (now Metra Electric) in mid 19th century. How did these working-class neighborhoods get named after two glitzy, sprawling Arizona cities?
