I have lived in Bolingbrook now since 2002. Prior to that, I had lived in Chicago and Schiller Park. Bolingbrook reminds me of hyde park neighborhood in Chicago where you can run into all people from all different works of life, color, age etc. in the same neighborhood. Bolingbrook was rated, last year or two ago as 32nd best city to live in the country. This is due to its different amenities- affordable housing, great parks, great schools, shopping centers (Promenade shopping centre-houses stores like Macy, Barnes & Noble, IKEA,movie theaters, Johny Rockets, Meijers, etc). It's only 30 minutes from downtown Chicago, and boarded by Naperville and, 20 minutes to Aurora. Bolingbrook is about 70 thousand residents, close to interstate highways and plenty of wonderful parks and golf courses. It also has a local regional airport and aero museum. Bolingbrook girls high school basketball team just won 3 straight state championship! It's a lovely city with everything for everybody.
