Below is some general information about Glencoe:

Glencoe is an affluent village in Cook County, Illinois, United States. As of the census, the total population was 8,723. Glencoe is located on suburban Chicago’s North Shore and is located within the New Trier High School District. According to the 2010 census, the village has a total area of 3.78 square miles, of which 3.72 square miles (or 98.41%) is land and 0.06 square miles (or 1.59%) is water. Glencoe is located on the west side of Lake Michigan. Its bluffs overlook the lake, cut by several ravines. It is separated from adjoining suburbs on the north and west by the Cook County Forest Preserve natural forest area. Three golf clubs also buffer it, with the private Lake Shore Country Club on the north, the public Glencoe Golf Club (operated by the village of Glencoe) on the northwest, and the private Skokie Country Club on the west.

The village is surrounded on three sides by upper income communities, with Highland Park on the north, Northbrook on the west, and Winnetka to the south. The Skokie Lagoons are located in the forest preserve to the immediate west of the village. The same forest preserve has a bicycle trail that connects to other forest preserves to the south. In the village the Greenbay Trail allows bicyclists to travel as far south as Wilmette and north past Lake Forest. The highest point of elevation in Glencoe is 690 feet (210 m) above sea level along Green Bay Road in the northern part of the village.

As of the census of 2010, there were 8,723 people, 3,013 households, and 2,499 families residing in the village. There were 3,209 housing units. The racial makeup of the village was 94% White, 1.2% African American, 2.7% Asian, 0.1% American Indian and Alaska Native, 0.5% some other race, and 1.5% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.7% of the population.

Glencoe has a Village Manager form of government. It had one of the first public safety departments (combined police/fire/paramedic). It is predominantly a single-family residential area, with no industrial uses. It has a small cohesive central business district that provides most basic services, including post office, library, Village Hall, performing arts theatre, train station (to Chicago), and other shopping needs.

Glencoe was the setting for the 1983 film Risky Business, starring Tom Cruise. However, the picture was actually filmed in neighboring Highland Park. Scenes from the 1986 John Hughes film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off were filmed in Glencoe, as were scenes from Sixteen Candles. The Glencoe train station is featured in scenes from Clint Eastwood’s Flags of Our Fathers, as well as John Hughes’ She’s Having a Baby. Glencoe in the 1970s and 1980s is fondly recalled as the backdrop of the coming of age memoir Lake Effect, by author Rich Cohen, introducing his readers to his famous “Jamie Drew” character, based on the real-life exploits of fellow native and Renaissance man Mark Varouxakis. The basis of the plot for the film Mean Girls is primarily focused on the North Shore, with the well-known reference to Glencoe in the quote “You Go Glen-Coco”. In the action-based drama series Covert Affairs on USA Network, August “Auggie” Anderson revealed in his polygraph that he is from Glencoe. The 2011 film Contagion (featuring Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Matt Damon) has scenes that were filmed in Glencoe.
