"I lived in a condo just South of 290 next to the Conservatory for 6 years (2004 - 2010), then moved into a house just north of 290 by Fox Park. We do not have kids so I have no input on schools, except to say that in general seems anywhere in Oak…"

"Been there a few times, love it! Can't wait for the quiet workspace downstairs to be ready :)  Also, the GF pastries are really good, you'd never suspect they were GF either."

OakParkGirl commented on Ann's blog post Snow Shoveling
"It's a tough one. If the house is all dark, then it's hard to be mad because maybe they are on vacation or working super late. We've had days where 3 - 4 inches got dumped while we were at work, and by the time we got home poor…"

Profile Information

Favorite thing about living in the Oak Park area
Just about everything I need is completely walkable, and public transportation is readily available in multiple locations all over the burb. Also, I grew up surrounded by trees, it's refreshing to not live in a cookie-cutter suburb where everything weas built in cornfields or all mature foliage was mowed down.
Least favorite thing about living in the Oak Park area
I wish houses were more affordable and parking were not such a major hassle for guests, but I can afford a condo and we generally get by on our 5 overnight passes per person a year, so for now I am content enough :)
Interests & Hobbies
Board games, Dungeons and Dragons, reading (mostly Steven King), shopping (yes, so predictable)
Favorite local restaurant
New Rebozo
Favorite local shop or business
Olive Owl Organics
