A town just west of chicago known for its famous residents such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Ernest Hemingway as well as its large homosexual population. Although The cuisine is excellent, it is likely that while walking to a fine resturant, such as Geppetto's or Papaspiros, you will be attacked by a member of the ACLU,one of the local schizophrenics, or Alan, the man who lives with his life partner Ernesto and 5 cats.

The urban suburb of Chicago where bilingual montessori toddlers scooter to piano lessons with their nannies, wearing 100% organic cotton clothes and eating locally sourced honey gelato from the farmers market. Basically, the Chicago version of park slope.
That organic juice cafe and waldorf indoor play space is going out of business? move them to Oak Park, they'll do well.

A suburb directly west of Chicago. Half the bungalows are occupied by lesbians with two kids from sperm donation, the other annoyingly normal families. The apartments on Washington Street are all occupied by no-dad black families with teens that cross over to the neighboring Austin ghetto to get pot and bootleg copies of "Twilight"
I live in Oak Park.

Oak Park began as Sacramento's very first suburb in 1889. James McClatchy park was originally a small amusment park called "Joy land" which included a quite popular Ferris wheel. After the end of WWII people were getting laid off and began to lose their homes to bank foreclosures. Property value went down and Oak Park began to become more and more "ghetto". Oak Park is one of the more dangerous places to be in Sacramento that I can think of. The city owns almost half of the homes in Oak Park yet they dont seem to be doing a whole lot with them.
Oak Park is a place you dont want to drive alone at night.
