River Park Neighborhoods
Several neighborhoods that border the Chicago River and east of the Edens Expressway provide home buyers with many options for housing that dates from the mid-1930s to the present day. Albany Park and Mayfair offer single-family homes as well as two- or three-flats and larger apartment complexes. Hollywood Park, the location of Northern Illinois University, as well as Peterson Park, Budlong Woods, Rosehill, Pulaski Park and North Park all contain apartment buildings and single family homes built in the mid-20th century. Edgebrook and Sauganash, enclosed by forest preserves but within easy reach of the Edens Expressway, offer home buyers many single-family homes with spacious lawns.
