Similar to Edgebrook, Forest Glen is dominated by single-family houses and forest preserves. One of the 77 official community areas, its development was initially spurred on by a commuter rail station that drew urbanites to the quiet area. Light industry was also attracted to the area along railroad, but it continues to be predominantly residential. A large, ethnically diverse area, Forest Glen continues to lure new homeowners with its diverse housing stock, forest preserves and quiet, curved streets that deviate from the usual Chicago grid.
