Sure, there is a bit of noise from airplanes when you live within a short distance of an airport. I have lived in Plainfield most of my adult life and love it. Every time I go on a trip and can make it to the airport in 15 minutes or less I am reminded of the convenience of living here. The best is when we arrive home, tired after a day of traveling. We pull out the cell phone and call friends that live in Plainfield to tell them we have landed. By the time we have gotten off the plane and have our luggage, they are pulling up to pick us up. Then a short 15 minutes later we are home safe and sound. I never mind providing airport taxi service to friends and family, it's so easy.
The best part is that little bit of noise may be the only negative about living in Plainfield. We have a wonderful park system with miles and miles of trails. The Aquatic Center provides a year round water park complete with water slides and fountains in addition to the lap pool. We have a beautiful shopping mall, Metropolis, with beautiful stores, restaurants and a movie theater. Our schools are top notch and the people are great.
Every area has something that is not ideal. We sleep with our windows open all summer. We are grateful to live and work in an area where a little airplane noise is our only negative.
The west side is a beautiful area that has been growing by leaps and bounds. I welcome the opportunity to show anyone around my home town.
