The CTA also announced Tuesday that it is exploring moving the historic Vautravers building, at 947-949 W. Newport Ave., some 29 feet to the west to be out of the way of the proposed track location.

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    COH is hosting environmental activist concerns now? How convenient.

  • Ryan C., the scope is significantly expanded, to include nearby track and platform maintenance. The cost of the original work has not changed. Doing the needed track work in combination with the flyover can save on costs and reduce neighborhood impact. Read the article, not just the headline.

    A "fly-under", at ground level? So half a dozen streets that now pass under the El would have to be closed off as dead ends on both sides? Not likely.

    The Center on Halsted is probably the nearest big meeting facility -- they're holding it in the gymnasium, where they can probably seat a thousand people if necessary.

Airbnb connects Boystown residents and visitors

The couple only began offering lodging for rent this spring, listing a guest bedroom in their apartment, which overlooks Dive Bar, at 3445 N. Halsted St. in Boystown. Troy said they also offer a space on their couch, as a more budget-friendly option.

There are a handful of available hotels in Boystown, with the Best Western Hawthorne Terrace, at 3434 N. Broadway St., most central to the Boystown district.

Three of the Broughton boutique hotels — City Suites, the Majestic, and the Willows — are all in the Lincoln Park/Lakeview area, with the Majestic, at 528 W. Brompton Ave., the closest to the epicenter of Boystown.

A proposal for a Boystown version of The Out Hotel, an LGBT-focused hotel with a location in New York City, was announced in 2013, and planned for 3343 N. Halsted St. But the proposal met with significant neighborhood opposition, and was ultimately given a thumbs-down by 44th Ward Ald. Tom Tunney.

Several other hotels are available near Diversey and Clark, but few others are available north of the area.
