I hope this person's not a realtor! By claiming that 'riff raft" is moving into Oak Park he's shooting himself in the ass by undermining River Forest's best feature - Oak Park/River Forest High School. Without that, it would be better to move to Riverside for that kind of money.

Did you ever wonder why most of the cities and villages with River in their names; Riverwoods, River Grove, River Forest, Riverside (and its partner North Riverside) and the former Riverview(now part of Des Plaines); are all named after the Des Plaines River, while Riverdale stands alone on the Calumet? There is (so far) no River Park or River Hills.

Either you work for the village or are a realtor. River Forest is a nice town, but knock it off.
Ok so I think I said something on two others and both of them were appropriate this one is about river forest if you can read and the other one was about a women who didn't know about Chicago and what she listed fitted this town perfectly I think I may have said one other one and it was about river forest I'm pretty sure and I didn't realize it was old till afterwords and your the one always commenting on anything having do with Chicago suburbs and how would you know so obviously you go on old threads too.

Haha, that's funny. I've yet to see a "bad area" in Oak Park...

Show me a school where fights, drugs and disputes between teens don't happen. Is this so in the town where you live? Cause those things happen in virtually EVERY town in the north and western suburbs. There are a lot of highly educated and successful people, such as professors, academics, doctors, lawyers, architects etc... that flock to Oak Park to raise their families. The professors I know from Northwestern University, UIC, U of C, Loyola, DePaul, IIT etc... send their kids to the schools here because their kids get a top notch education and experience, and they're very happy with it.

The policies in most schools reflect the desires of the community to have an orderly atmosphere in the school.

The overly intellectual types that worry too much about the "damage" that comes from not tolerating aggressive behavior seem to be uniquely represented in Evanston and Oak Park.

Yes, and teens don't always follow policy or the desire of the communities, hence issues like Heroin use etc...

So the idea is the more educated you are, the more you're willing to overlook negative activity? LOL, it's nonsense that "intellectual types" are more tolerating of "aggressive behavior" than any other "type".

So why would I move to River Forest then? Taking my money to Riverside and Riverside-Brookfield High School then. Goodbye. No commission for you!

Default There are identifiable differences in certain "types" of educated people and what sorts of things they "come out for"...

The "type" of people that would support a "nuclear weapons free zone" are exactly the "type" that would fret about enforcing rules that toss kids that break rules and do not conform with standards becuase they've spent their academic career studying the "problems" of whatever "vicitims" are fashionable.

In contrast folks who've spent just a much time in college earning their MBA, JD, MD or PhD in something more like Engineering generally have a whole different idea when it comes to basic "law and order" issues.
