The hydrant on the corner of Campbell and Cortland has been open for six hours. I've called 311 two times to report it. Am I out of options to get the city to respond? Any advice?

Landscaping Service

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced landscaping service? Just moved in to a new home and the quotes in getting are outrageous.
Thanks!

  • Slyons31 just moved to Logan square in June

    How big is your area that needs service? Is it just standard cut, weed Wack and blow?

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged but may contain typos.

    I'm not sure how extensive your project may be or perhaps its just an upkeep situation. You may wan to give Juan Tamayo at Hardscape Chicago a call 773-951-6648. He's one of the most reliable, conscientious and cost efficient contractors I've ever dealt with.

  • Rudy's landscaping is affordable and can get the work done fast!

Ten Years Later, Schwa is as Excellent as Ever

1466 N. Ashland Ave.

    Ten Years Later, Schwa is as Excellent as Ever
    In 2008, the food writer Alan Richman invited my wife and me to dine at Schwa. He was working on a story about the restaurant's enigmatic chef, Michael Carlson, and needed more opinions on the experience. I had never eaten at Schwa, but I knew all about the place.

    Cars make way for bikes in transit-oriented housing proposal
    Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans to soon introduce changes to the city's transit-oriented development ordinance that would dramatically expand the areas eligible for city incentives and let developers off the hook for parking if they instead make room for bicycles.

  • 830 N Milwaukee... More "Brutalist architecture". This one's a real dog. Good luck trying to get any sleep on that corner and I would not go out the front door unless they built a crash barrier.

  • 1272 N. Milwaukee... isn't that old Moeller Department Store and a registered historic landmark building?! How on earth will they put 58 units in that building unless they tear it down or build 5 stories higher?! Anyone see the building plans for 1272? I can't seem to find anything on that project.
