Riverside is an affluent suburb just 9 miles west of the city of Chicago. It is accessible to the city through the 290 expressway or the Metra train that runs through downtown. It was the first planned community in the United States and was designed in 1869 by famed landscape architect Fredrick Law Olmsted who also designed New York's Central Park.
Most of the real estate in Riverside was developed in the 1920s to the late 1930s. Most of the village was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970.
Riverside is unique in that just about every street curves. As you wind through the streets of Riverside you will notice many beautifully kept vintage homes. Drive at night and you will notice 379 antique-style gas street lights keep the streets lit.
The schools here are excellent and I give the community high marks as great place to consider for your new home.
