Winnetka's Crow Island School and neighborhood

If you ask Winnetkans what neighborhood they live in, the answer is likely to be the name of a public elementary school: Greeley, Hubbard Woods or Crow Island.

Crow Island is, as a broad-brush proposition, the most affordable of Winnetka’s neighborhoods. Pine St and Green Bay Rd are the northern and eastern boundaries of the Crow Island School’s attendance area, and Winnetka's borders are the western and southern boundaries.

Join me in the video for a walk around and a look at Winnetka's iconic Crow Island School. Then head over to Anne West's North Shore Views blog for a look at the school's history and an overview of the housing stock in the Crow Island neighborhood.
