Need Tuckpointer Suggestions

Can anyone recommend a tuckpointer?

  • Our building has successfully used Arrow Masonry.

  • We've used James Mangan of masonryworks.net about two years ago to tuckpoint a two-flat building and replace some lentels. The building looks great today. He was a one-man operation at the time we hired him. Took him longer, but he was priced much more reasonably.

GANG TAGS Alley between Rockwell and Tallman, 4700 block

Saw this today. Thought this was LK turf. Hope this doesn't presage some stupid fight.

  • Karen in Irv Pk hood Lived in neighborhood 12+ years

    Thanks everyone - we all need to continue to be diligent with reporting all tagging to all the places listed above, 311, city, your alderwo/man. Getting it cleaned asap sends a clear message to the gangs that we are paying attention to their stupidity and they are not welcome to stay!

  • Agreed Karen!!!
