I moved to Burbank about 10 years ago and it is the most peaceful quiet town I have ever lived in. I love it! my neighbors are so nice and never had anything bad to say about my town
It's a place that doesn't always feel very safe.Sometimes walking down streets you get cat called. There are nearby Walgreens and such. Getting off of 87th street can be hectic.
Burbank is a small suburb town of Chicago Illinois. It is just in the middle of areas such as Oak lawn, Palos Hills, Evergreen and more, making it easy access to nearby areas that are connected between each other. There are all types of businesses in the area that will accommodate to all your daily needed things. Many schools from elementary to junior high to high school and even college are all easy to commute to from burbank.
I have noticed an increase in crime rate. There is not much to do around here. As for kids there are plenty of parks to take them to but as mentioned before the crime rate has been going up so unless with an adult kids should not go on their own.
Burbank has become a bit unsafe. The neighborhood use to be a safe place ore kids to ride their bikes and play outside before dark. Lately the crime seems to be increasing and many businesses have been closing.
It has a great shopping location. I love the stores its very much like a community. People work together to keep the area clean and well put together.
It’s a small city with a lot of variety in stores. Walking distance are perfect. Parks are super nice and clean. They should make a bigger water park, with more slides and bigger for the people that live there. Also should have library that is open longer just in case people need to use anything from there. Pace should pass through later through the night. A dog park and able to have more than two dogs. Should have more activities in the district park for older people not just kids. More carnivals around the area during the summer as well as in the spring.
Burbank is a clean neighborhood. Has a wonderful township that provides a lot of services to their people.
the cost of living is low. the neighborhood is quiet and calm and very family oriented. I would love to see more restaurants
Great area to raise a family. Easy access to various stores, restaurants, things to do. Very family oriented. Good high school.
Burbank is a wonderful community. Recent additions include a public gym, swimming pool, basketball courts and a new park area. Great shopping within a 10 minute drive. Wonderful restaurants to suite any cuisine desires. Friendly neighbors in a safe community.
I am a third generation Burbank resident. My family came here when it was a new community on the outskirts of the big city, close enough for a short commute, but away from the city's hustle and bustle. While Burbank is busier than it was in the early 1950’s when many of the houses were surrounded by open fields, it still has a small town atmosphere. Children in Burbank only go to Burbank schools, including the high school. Many teachers are former Burbank residents themselves. And while there are many new half a million dollar houses going up where modest cape cods once resided, affordable housing can still be found. Overall Burbank is a good community to raise your family.
City needs a better source of revenue
This is definitely not a horrible neighborhood, but it has worsened in the time I've lived here.
As with most places, new homes are going up, money is being put into "beautifying" the neighborhood, meanwhile things that have needed repairs for long periods of time are still being neglected. More money is spent trying to bring in new crowds than it is in keeping those that are already there.
Crime is getting worse. My neighbor just got robbed at knife point. She's 11.
Used to be a quiet, safe neighborhood. Everyone is leaving because it is getting bad. The weather is awful too.
Has become worse in the last few years.
This was a great place to live but has started shifting in the wrong direction over the last few years.
Being nearby a busy street is possibly the scariest thing in the neighborhood if you have children. Other than that, crime does not seem like an issue, the neighborhood residents range from families to elderly couples. The most serious crime that occurred in this area was a stolen bike.
