Crime & Safety
If you want a safe and affordable town , close to more exclusive surrounding neighbors like La Grange Park, North Riverside, Elmhurst, Oak brook but far way more economics in prices and taxes, Broadview is the perfect option. Even that are more African America but still peaceful & safe. Most of my neighbor really take care about their garden and greeting you all the time. I am not an African America but I fall in love with my beautiful property 100 % upgraded. LA Fitness Broadview integrate people from surrounding neighbors and also can go to Oak Brook for shopping or work out , my Chiropractor is in Elmhursh or my dermatology in Brookfield in just a couple minutes distance. So if you are looking for houses just take a look in this little but peaceful and safe town.
Broadview is a nice place to raise kids. More of a family neighborhood in which I enjoy very much. Have never experienced any violence and I've lived here for over 5 years. Don't know too much about the school system since I myself am a college student but it seems great. Not as much diversity as I would like but it's there. Everyone is pretty friendly. The storms can be horrible and the flooding is pretty bad especially if you live by the river. A lot of storms which makes it really convenient. I'm a city girl but I truly loooove living in broadview. I may miss the city some times but the quietness and peace of mind is well over worth it.
My family has lived in Broadview, IL for over 40 years. The neighbors are nice and friendly and everyone helps out.
