Norridge is a great place to live if you like to be near a big city. Just thirty minutes to an hour away from downtown Chicago. Norridge is surrounded by numerous places to eat, however, there aren’t much in the town itself. Safety is okay in Norridge. Houses in Norridge are very expensive.

Norridge Is the best community that I lived in. I moved 9 times from apartments in Chicago to New Jersey then lastly I did research about this neiborhood and about the schools, and I found it the best place to live in.
I like the sense of community in Norridge. Everyone knows each other, which could either be a good or bad thing. However, there is much support among community members and the current events surrounding our small town. We are united as one as our own island in the city.
