Where can I get copies of keys made in Broadway/Bryn Mawr/Ridge immediate area?

Does anyone know where I can do this that is within quick walking distance of that area? Jewel doesn't make them and there used to be a variety store on Bryn Mawr that did, but they've closed. "Closest" place I know is Clark-Devon Hardware, which isn't close enough.

Thank you!

    DCH has been in business for quite a while - I would think that if they didn't work, you would get replacements for free. These guys care about their business.

  • EHJ

    There is a little hardware store on Clark at Berwyn. It's called CAS, and it's owned by an older couple, maybe Romanian, who have been running it for years and years. Great key copying! I've used them many times.

  • Kochlechel condo treasurer, Green Party

    Larry is right. Go to Foster Beach and watch the wonderful fireworks at the
    Saddle and Cycle Club on Saturday night. Or if there are no waves, the pier at Osterman Beach.

  • hazelg Longtime Edgewater resident

    Not only Foster Beach which I mentioned earlier, but anywhere in the Park from Foster to Hollywood you can see these remarkable fireworks. I have been going in that entire area for the past five years and I found that these fireworks were just as good as the ones that were at Grant Park except without the music.

Suggestions on how to stop neighbors from using our trash cans?

We have to leave our standard and recycle garbage bins outside of our garage, in the alley, due to lack of room in the garage for the cans. The problem we are having is people from the neighborhood are throwing their trash in our cans which creates an overflow situation before trash pick-up days. One person who does this likes to leave unbroken down boxes from Amazon in the trash, clearly labeled with his name and address. I don't feel...

We have to leave our standard and recycle garbage bins outside of our garage, in the alley, due to lack of room in the garage for the cans. The problem we are having is people from the neighborhood are throwing their trash in our cans which creates an overflow situation before trash pick-up days. One person who does this likes to leave unbroken down boxes from Amazon in the trash, clearly labeled with his name and address. I don't feel comfortable going to this person's residence and knocking on his door as I have no idea what I'd encounter. Aside from pulling the trash cans inside (which might be the only solution - but it will be a costly one as we'll need to have shelving installed or something along those lines), does anyone have an ideas? Has anyone else experienced this dilemma? Thanks in advance for any (productive) feedback.

Do Not Call

My tn is on the Do Not Call list. Unfortunately, it really makes no difference, as everybody & their brother can call with their mostly unimportant messages & bother us. We just received a message from AC 615, which is in Tenn. alerting us to a missing cat . No offense to cat lovers, but why would I even care about a lost cat up here in Chicago? I am allergic to them & I avoid them. Plus I really do not feel that a phone alert is a necessary means of alerting the community to some lost cat 500 miles away.

  • Julie in Edgewater retired and curious

    When do not call lists are abided by, will be a celebration day for so many of us! There are exceptions to such lists anyway. Did chrisbornagain learn whether the sender was en exception? Compassion for the calls purpose might excuse the imagined mistake of bugging Chris and spouse.

  • chrisfinn bornagain chicagoan

    Well Julie in Edgewater, perhaps you did not read my original post or my secondary post. If you are going to "bug" me with your calls pleading for my help it would be a good idea to give a number THAT CAN RECEIVE CALLS.

Propane Tank Refills


I am wondering if anyone can recommend a place to get a Propane Tank refilled near Sheridan and Foster? I don't have a car, so the closer to that intersection the better.



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

    OMG! NO! Those are all CHAIN places being recommended!

    If you were a real activist trying to change the world, you'd tap into that corporate gas company's line for free.

  • If you're looking to refill, the U-Haul at 4055 N. Broadway does it. I'd call first to check their hours. If you're looking to exchange, just take it to the Jewel as mentioned earlier. I'd ask a friend for a ride — those tanks are so heavy when they're full!

Lots of police at intersection of Hermitage and Bryn Mawr!

Anyone know what happened? They have every entrance blocked from ashland to damen. Lots of police tape. Shooting?

  • darek Edgewater/Andersonville resident

    Yes, there was a shooting. At least 3 or 4 shots fired, no idea as to what was the target. A man in a van pulled into the crime scene (same intersection) and said he was shot at down the road (east on Bryn Mawry) at what looked like a kid - in his terms. From what I am hearing, living next to this intersection, it sounds gang-related.

    Guess all the tagging recently isn't for nothing.

  • I meant 'by' Fireside, not to say that the restaurant is somehow responsible for the tight squeeze Ravenswood Ave is.

Edgewater’s Care For Real Food Pantry Gets Makeover

Clients and visitors to Edgewater’s Care for Real will likely notice some positive changes at the facility this week thanks to a mission group’s efforts to paint, move inventory and wax floors last week. UKANDU Chicago offered its assistance at no cost to the non-profit because it wanted to be a blessing, Pete Imlah said […]

  • I hope that make over includes a donation bin in the back of the building. It is a little disturbing for neighbors to wake up to the mess that people left on the curbside in front of their building, I understand that is not their fault, or hope that is not their fault, and is just the fault of ignorant lazy people. I believe in Care for Real and the people that they help.

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

    You should volunteer then.
