Burbank is a city in Cook County Illinois with a population estimated at 28,900. The city is located at the southwest edge of Chicago. Burbank shares a boundary with Oak Lawn to its south, Bridgeview to its west, and Bedford Park to its north; the city of Hometown is also adjacent to Burbank's southeast corner. Burbank is less than two miles south of Chicago Midway International Airport. In 1850, the area that would become Burbank was largely inhabited and became part of Lyons Township. Over the next hundred years the area remained largely underdeveloped. In the 1920s, the area became an attractive site for real-estate developers who bought up farmland and built subdivisions. However, Burbank remained largely unbuilt and empty until the 1950s because of drainage problems due to the Great Depression. In 1952, the area became part of Stickney Township. This led to massive development in the area, and by 1960 the population of the area had nearly tripled, reaching 20,720. The area was incorporated into a city in 1970 and it has since developed into the community that it is today.
