In your scenario, Hinsdale would be the hub, and Clarendon Hills would be the "suburb". Similarly, La Grange would be the hub, and Western Springs would the "suburb".

Maywood and Broadview are close enough to Chicago and similar enough to each other to be Chicago's suburbs in their own right.

Dixmoor & Phoenix: Harvey
Green Oaks & Knollwood: Libertyville
Port Barrington: Wauconda
Deer Park: Lake Zurich
McCook: Berwyn
Indian Head Park: LaGrange
Lockport: Joliet
Park City: Waukegan

What are some others that come to mind?

This is definitely what happens when a major city is getting more mature. Employment center nodes are all over the place. Resources are abundant. Though, the way they are distributed is incredibly inefficient (on a person to person basis).

Joliet really sticks out on that list as it's population has doubled since I lived in the Chicagoland area. There were lots of people who didn't see that area as being very desirable. Yet, look at it's growth. Over 40 miles from the Loop and growing enormously.
