West of Skokie Rd (Rte 41) in Wilmette all of the north -- south streets have names that begin with an L: Lacrosse, Lamon, Laporte, Lavergne, Lawler, Leclaire, Long, Leamington and Laramie.
This is an area that belies the North Shore's reputation as a wealthy enclave. Homes are typically priced from the mid-$200s to the low $400s and include 3 or 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a free-standing garage.
The area has a diverse population, including a strong Asian presence.
Join me for a drive along Laramie Ave from Lake Ave to Glenview Rd. And stay tuned for more drives along West Wilmette's L streets.
