Maybe you've heard a bit about us? We are the small business owners of North ave, WEST OF WESTERN. Together we are trying to make a positive difference in our business community. Today our boundaries are: North ave to California ave.and by summers end we hope to grow past Kedzie!

There is still lots of work to be done. We need benches, banners, flower planters, waste receptacles and MORE businesses. We LOVE that we are THRIVING, helping each other, and most of all, having fun while doing so.

BTW, a commercial is airing on WLS 7 morning and night celebrating small businesses. If you or anyone you know is interested in opening a business in the WOW DISTRICT, pls send them my way.

I've said it a million times and I truly believe this--

    I love what you you are doing, and your vision for that stretch of road. I hope you accomplish what you have set out to do. I'm planning to open a brewery in the next 3-5 years, so maybe we'll be speaking sometime in the distant future.

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    That will be good timing! In the mean time, maybe you could open a cupcake store. I hear they're the next great business idea!

5am Fireworks?

Anyone else wake up at 5pm to the sound and sights of fireworks coming from or around Bloomingdale between Washtenaw and Talman last night?

  • Canyon Humboldt Park

    These were fireworks. Someone posted on WB moms Facebook page that they saw the kids light off fireworks. I heard them as well.

  • They were definitely fireworks. I flipped on my police scanner app when I heard and they confirmed.

Sexual Assault Perp @ Western/Armitage Area

This a.m. a guy flashed a woman at Moffat and Campbell. Last week, a nanny that works in our building on the 2400 block of W Bloomingdale was approached and chased to our place by a very similar sounding person - white male, 20s, backpack, sunglasses.

Keep alert, ladies. If you see something, call it in to 911.

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    Seems like more and more of these incidents are taking place in the morning rush hour.

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    FYI Sexual Assault is what IL calls rape. This sounds more like Indecent Exposure.
