    I'd second fish market - and now with the wine brokers something to fill the void there. Pastoral could fit the bill nicely.

    @DR: Provenance has a small, but impeccably curated, selection of wines. For spirits, Gene's is better than some may realize. I've found a lot of small-batch spirits there.

  • Steve B. The dude abides.

    Mark, I agree. I get the free market ideal, but capitalism doesn't guarantee neighborhoods that we want to live in. It's the profits that builders are seeking and gradually changing our neighborhoods as a result.

    The overbuilding (per lot) issue you run into is reduced light around a building as well as airflow and general density. We bought in our area because the homes are a considerable distance apart. The forward/aft space of the lot is balanced as well. The new homes are darn near lot line properties. My neighbors make sport of challenging one builder who seems to attempt to encroach on the 3' from line rule (note the chimney stacks that start three feet up or the power meter that is on the side of properties.)
    I am going to be concerned when a builder buys the homes next to me and builds a monster house on the 70' of width. Now THAT will be the Taj Mahal of North Center.

Yester around 2.30 pm My wife and I noticed a German Sheppard and a Pit Bull on the side walks on Foster close to Damen without their owners. When I went to check on them they did come to me briefly, looked friendly but then ran off on the back alley. My neighbor and I went around looking to make sure they are safe. Unfortunately we could not locate them despite. Hopefully they went back home realizing they were in trouble. They seemed well behaved and almost stayed off the busy Foster Ave. Our guess is they belong to someone in the neighborhood around the south east side of the streets from the Foster and Damen intersection. Unfortunately I do not have photos of them. In th

    I think it's a valid point .Im tired of crossing the street when see people walking their dogs without a leash .Their usual comment is "don't worry they are friendly .

  • SixtyTwoPercentWater Neighborhood Blogger

    Yeah, I agree with Aron. My neighbor's dog was friendly until it bit my kid. I would have had the dog euthanized but that might have just been my emotions at the time.
