Garage space

Hi, I just moved to Bucktown and am looking for a garage space to rent preferably within four blocks of Dickens and Wolcott. Thanks!

  • I'm looking for one near Dickens and Damen, I'll let you know if I find anything closer to you. Have you looked on Craigslist? There's one on wood, but that might be too far.

  • I hadn't looked on craigslist yet but just did. Thanks! I'd like something a bit closer, but I might snag the one on Wood if I can't find anything else. I'll keep my eyes peeled for Dickens and Damen, too.

Is Double Door Leaving Wicker Park For Logan Square?
