O'Hare expansion - concern about noise & property value in Lincoln Square?

Asked by 444wfullerton, Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL Mon Jun 4, 2012

Should the expansion of the O'Hare airport (including two new east-west runways, one of which will be positioned over Montrose) be a concern (both noise and property value wise for a purchase near Montrose and Western in Lincoln Square? Is it a bad decision?

Take yourself to Western Avenue and Bryn Mawr almost any day and you will be right under a current flight path. Judge for yourself if the planes flying overhead at that location detract from the values.

Planes fly over Chicago. It isn't like this location is at the end of the runway. You're overthinking this. It has no effect on Lincoln Square.
