Garden Plot?

Anyone know of available garden plots to rent near Edgewater/Andersonville? I am probably too late for this year but it can't hurt to look!

  • There are community gardens at the corner of Peterson and Ravenswood and also at Ashland and Hollywood ave. The Bowmanville area also has two community lots on west Bryn Mawr.

  • AJ Salyers Edgewater/Andersonville Newbie!

    Isola I am very interested! But I do not know how to send a private message lol forgive me.... Apparently I'm new :/

Thoughts on N Glenwood Bike Lane

Looking for some thoughts on this. The other day I was going east on W Hollywood and when I got to N Glenwood, I stopped to take a left on to N Glenwood - which at this point is one way heading northbound. As I pulled out a biker was going southbound - against the traffic and I almost hit him. Even though he was breaking the law, it really wouldn't have mattered because I really don't want to hurt...

Looking for some thoughts on this. The other day I was going east on W Hollywood and when I got to N Glenwood, I stopped to take a left on to N Glenwood - which at this point is one way heading northbound. As I pulled out a biker was going southbound - against the traffic and I almost hit him. Even though he was breaking the law, it really wouldn't have mattered because I really don't want to hurt anyone.

So I got to thinking and the problem is that a lot of bikers use Glenwood but the issue is that when heading southbound at Ridge, they have to make a decision - ride on Ridge where there is no room or go the wrong way on Glenwood. I wonder if we shouldn't have a southbound bike lane from Ridge to Edgewater Ave on Glenwood and then direct the southbound bikers to take a right and go over to Clark (sort of like the bike lane on Ardmore at the end of the lake front trail). Anyone have an idea on how to make it safer for everyone?

  • It's a great idea. And aside from Julia's comment, I appreciate the constructive tone of this thread. How often do drivers--while they are driving--think up ideas for making bikers safe? That takes a generous soul. Most drivers just get pissed off.

  • I looked back in my email from last April and I got this response from Harry Osterman's office. I made the same suggestion as John, to connect Glenwood to Edgewater Ave.

    "Thank you for reaching out. We completely agree with you on this issue. My office is talking with CDOT about solutions for Glenwood, south of Ridge. We will have community meetings about this project in the future, as the project would be planned for 2015. Please sign up for our weekly newsletter to stay tuned!

    I haven't heard anything, but here's the email for Harry Osterman's office if more people want to make the suggestion / ask about it: harry@48thward.org

What happend last night on Glenwood in front of St. Gertrude/Northside Catholic Academy

I live right across the street from St. Gertrude/Northside Catholic Academy. When my wife got home last night at 11:30 everything was normal. However, around 11:50 I noticed a police car outside our window. I looked down on the street and two of the sawhorses NCA uses to block traffic before/after school were in the street (between the alley and Thome).

I live right across the street from St. Gertrude/Northside Catholic Academy. When my wife got home last night at 11:30 everything was normal. However, around 11:50 I noticed a police car outside our window. I looked down on the street and two of the sawhorses NCA uses to block traffic before/after school were in the street (between the alley and Thome). The officers drove around for a little bit and came back and looked around. At one point an unmarked car came but didn't stay for very long. The marked car left a few minutes later, but then came back again and looked around again. They just left with the sawhorses in the street all evening; they were still there at 6am. Anybody have any idea what was going on?

  • Thanks for sharing if I see them I will move them count on it. Thanks again. Just hope I don't get arrested for touching them. ;)

  • Doesn't sound like much except usual Chicago police activity.

    Tom G, I don't agree with a number of other person's opinions but if they are spoken with intelligence and integrity I respect every single one of them. Discourse and debate is the foundation of our representative democracy. Who we are as a people and as a nation evolves and changes over time. We used to exalt an economy based on slave labor, deny women the vote and criminalize mixed-marriages. We believed in separate-but-equal and allowed men to legislate womens bodies. What was then isn't now because we protect and value free speech, the evolution of ideas and changing definitions of who we are as a nation. It isn't easy. We still have States like Indiana that want to legitimize hatred and discrimination while pretending to be Christian and hiding behind the fraudulent claim of religious freedom. A public forum is good for finding a lost pet, getting references for a plumber or announcing community events. But it also is good for exchanging and challenging ideas.

Edgewater Residential Swimming Pools

Hi all,

Several buildings in the area have swimming pools for building residents. For example, Malibu and Edgewater Beach Apartments both have pools. Does anyone know if there's a swimming pool a non-resident can access without being a resident's guest? For example, is there a building where I could pay to use the pool? I know Edgewater Athletic Club has a swimming pool, but it seemed a bit small and noisy.

Thanks!

  • Invictus Edgewater neighbor

    Also, consider the Edgewater Athletic Club in the Sovereign Hotel at Granville and Kenmore. They charge, of course, but they have a great pool.

  • Julia Z-N Andersonville Dog Mama

    The Chicago Park District should not be charging for the use of OUR pools. This started in just the last few years and I think it's a slap in the face to Chicagoans. The parks should be free,and I mean all the parks.

    Maybe try the grocery store that is right there on Devon, generally grocery stores have lots of boxes they are happy to get rid of!

  • MichelleB in Edgewater New Chicago resident

    Hi Amy. I just moved into the area and just threw away a bunch of boxes :-( but I have a few more and a bunch of plastic totes (my stuff was in storage for a couple of years). I am near Sheridan & Berwyn if this works, private message me.

  • Ricky Coogin North Andersonville

    I suggested going to a grocery store to the last person who was moving and someone else here had maybe a better idea: liquor stores. The boxes have to be pretty strong to hold all the bottles.
