Come with me to Sleepy Hollow

To find quality living in the country, while still only a short drive from anything you desire, you need only look to Sleepy Hollow … All in all Sleepy Hollow, without a legend or even a headless horseman, is destined to become the showplace suburb of Chicagoland … Come with me to Sleepy Hollow.

The more than 50 year-old marketing video, above, for Sleepy Hollow was made at a time when it was possible to refer to the “new O’Hare field” and boast of the advantages of being close to “modern facilities in the town of Elgin.”

I was early for a video shoot in Gilberts yesterday and, beckoned by a headless horseman on my right and cheerful green creatures on my left, I opted to bypass both and check out the “Randall Road shopping corridor.” It appears destined to become a showplace for the unpredictable future of big-box retail.
