Working in Northfield
What a wonderful place to live! The town is a pleasant place to ride bikes and visit local shops, the library, grocery, pharmacy, the village restaurant, which are all run by friendly locals. Easily accessible and a small town feel, only 15 minutes away from the city of Chicago. I'm so glad we moved here!
I like Northfield because although it's small, it offers everything we need. We can get to the grocery store, pharmacy, post office, library or hardware store all within 5 minutes. It is also close to the expressway to get to Chicago when we want to go downtown. Our neighbors are friendly, the town is clean, and the schools are very good.
Love it! I have lived here for 2 years, and find it very easy to navigate. It's close to the highway, and there is lot's of shopping close by. Schools are amazing, and people are very friendly!
