As a previous resident, one of my personal favorite features was the walking distance to Des Plaines River Trail. I have personally biked the trail to the Wisconsin border and back and it is just over a 100-miles door to door. My wife loved how close she was to Rosemont shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Close proximity to O’Hare and blue line. Just an overall great neighborhood.
