No, "Three Corners" is not an official name. But it should be.
In fact, why not our very own "Four Corners?"At the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Gilbert Avenue, to the northwest lies the Forest Preserve, southwest is Western Springs, northeast is La Grange Park and southeast is La Grange. Three Patch towns and a forest preserve... well, we say that's a better Four Corners than some random spot in the southwest desert.
So here's five homes that offer easy access to three towns and a preserve, and by extension, Gilbert Avenue and Ogden Avenue. Plus, super close to Nazareth Academy for Naz people!
