Edison Park offers a diversified, safe, clean, and quiet place to live and explore. One gets the best of both worlds when it comes to day and nightlife, some may even say it is the neighborhood that never sleeps. Located in northwest Chicago, bordering Niles, Norwood Park, and Park Ridge, you will find a plethora of fine Italian restaurants and Irish pubs for the evening, and lively, lush parks offering productive, recreational activities during the day for people of all ages. Humble and quaint, Edison Park is the right place for all!

Edison Park is a great place to live and raise children-if you're white. The community is mostly white, and much of the people who live here work as first responders, nurses, or police officers. The neighborhood is very safe, but police harass minorities for no reason. There's a lot of racism in the community. There also isn't a lot to do for teens. The schools are great, however, they too lack diversity.
Here in Edison Park, we are at the border of Chicago proving us to be city yet suburban. Our neighborhoods are quiet and filled with the most prompt citizens. Growing up here, I remember all the times when I was little, and thinking about eventually having to move away scares me. My whole life has been based in Edison Park with its school, park, plethora of restaurants, and even just walking on its sidewalks brings great significance. Walking through Edison Park every morning while going to school, seeing the familiar streets, gives me a sense of home outside my home. Even though I live in a house, I will always live in Edison Park.
