Berwyn is a city in Cook County, Illinois. Once a vibrant, social suburb, Berwyn has transformed into literally a social desert, as, over the years, the social atmosphere in Berwyn has completely collapsed.

Stay Safe[edit]

Berwyn is a mostly safe town, although parts of northeastern Berwyn especially north of Cermak Road can get iffy at night. Common sense will keep you safe.


If you decide that you must visit Berwyn, even to go to the historic Depot District, it might be wise to leave everyone alone while in Berwyn.
