Anne writes regularly about local events, neighborhoods and real estate. Her most recent piece focuses on a Wilmette neighborhood that some call McKenzie Square and others just "McKenzie" after the local elementary school. Wilmette real estate listings typically preface the neighborhood name with "popular" or "sought-after," and it is.
Wilmette is, as they say of Chicago, a city of neighborhoods, with a great deal more variety than people unfamiliar with it might expect.
In addition to a useful take on why McKenzie Square / McKenzie is popular and sought-after, West sketches the types of housing available in the neighborhood, and mentions several homes that are currently on the market. One of them, 1534 Wilmette Ave, is pictured above.
