Newcomer from SF

After 32 years I just moved back to Chicago from SF, and I'm looking for a studio in the city. I'm staying with friends in Park Ridge until I find something.
I a semi retired jazz musician and would like to be in the Northside but my budget is $600-$700. I've been looking in Portage Park but would liike to be further east. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • EBKitty Stalking around EB

    There are apts to be found in those hoods, but that budget doesn't fit over there either. But good luck to you Alan, maybe you can get a roommate also.

  • Bville Cat Lady "Stop whining and find something to do" ~ Violet C

    Studios in that price range are almost non-existent, especially as you go east.

    There are a few listed here:

    Try Craigslist: the "CPlus" app makes it easy to search and save ads.

    Zillow is ok too.

Flood Control

Has anyone hired a reliable company for a flood control unit.

  • Brushman4 Serving the best since "53"

    I paid $8200 last year, I got estimates for overhead sewers of between $13500 to $14900!

  • What you need is called "Modified Overhead" sewer. It routes all the basement plumbing to an ejector and ties into the main sewer line. No outside work all inside.

Hello all.
Hope you are somehow coping with this summers rampant aircraft noise.

Construction continues on the Devon/Peterson corridor runway (9C/27C) at Chicago's O'Hare airport. At 11,245 feet long and 200 feet wide it will be O'Hare's second largest runway and is intended to be a 24 hour runway capable of handling the largest cargo planes. Situated between the Pratt Avenue runway to the north and the Thorndale Avenue runway to the south, it is expected to add a stereophonic noise experience to the areas along the Devon/Peterson flight corridor. Why is yet another runway being constructed as the number of noise complaints rise and noise and air pollution issues are not being resolved.

Areas along the flight corridor:
Medina
Roselle
Itasca
Elk Grove
Rosemont
Park Ridge
Chicago Wards 41, 39, 50, 40 48.

Funding is expected in part from $1 billion in City of Chicago bonds backed by taxes and fees. Guess whose great grandchildren will be paying off these bonds?

Let your elected officials know of your concerns. 'Not my job' is not an acceptable answer from any elected official.

The buck start here ==> ' Rahm.Emanuel@cityofchicago.org '

Thanks,
