ChicagoNorthwest Side

Have you been to Wildwood?

It wouldn’t surprise me if more Chicagoans have been to Wildwood, New Jersey than to the micro-nabe with the same name on Chicago’s northwest side.

Wildwood is a small neighborhood in Forest Glen, which is one of Chicago’s 77 official Community Areas.

For a look at the neighborhood, head for YoChicago’s Wildwood album at Flickr, or view our images as a slideshow.

If you visit Wildwood, you’re likely to be impressed by the calm and overwhelmed by the greenery, which is dense enough to darken most streets at noon on a sunny day. The largely post-war housing stock is varied and almost uniformly pleasing to the eye.
