Great City Services

A big thank you to Chicago Streets and Sanitation for replacing the collapsed sewer at the end of our driveway and to the Bureau of Forestry for trimming and cleaning up
after trimming all the trees on our parkway. (No, I don't work for the city) . Our tax dollars were well spent for both of these projects.

R.I.P. Lincoln Square Lanes: Check Out 7 Other Neighborhood Bowling Alleys

6. Edison Park Bowl, 6715 N. Olmsted Ave.: Located inside Edison Park Inn, which dates to 1957, Edison Park Bowl offers eight lanes and manual scoring. The bowling alley is easily identifiable by its signature white pin sign.

This article has 7 other Chicago locations (Show)

For those who relied on the beloved Lincoln Square Lanes, 4874 N. Lincoln Ave., for bowling fun, we rounded up seven other bowling alleys across the city that are still standing:

1. Fireside Bowl, 2648 W. Fullerton Ave.: From the mid-1990s to 2004, this retro Logan Square bowling alley was a punk...

3. Waveland Bowl, 3700 N. Western Ave.: Also in North Center, Waveland Bowl bills itself as Chicago's largest bowling alley, offering 40 lanes. It was built in 1959 — which is evident from its colorful retro sign — and offers cosmic bowling.

4. Southport Lanes & Billiards, 3325 N. Southport Ave.: Built around 1900 by Schlitz Brewery, Southport Lanes, like Timber Lanes, was one of the...

Southport Lanes, 3225 N. Southport Ave., has four bowling lanes, pool tables and craft beers on draft. [DNAinfo/Ariel Cheung]

5. Diversey River Bowl, 2211 W. Diversey Parkway: This Bucktown alley has a full-service restaurant, hence the giant, neon sign against the cityscape backdrop that reads "Diversey Rock 'n' Bowl Restaurant." It, too, offers cosmic bowling complete with laser-light shows and music. 

7. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Roller Skating and Bowling Center, 1219 W. 76th St.: Located within the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park, this family-friendly South Side alley could be the most modern on the list. In addition to bowling, the center also offers roller skating.

    R.I.P. Lincoln Square Lanes: Check Out 7 Other Neighborhood Bowling Alleys
    CHICAGO - Early Monday Lincoln Square Lanes was destroyed in a massive fire. We're still processing the unexpected loss of the historic bowling alley, which dated to 1918. It was one of the city's rare alleys where bowlers still kept score by hand. For those who relied on the beloved Lincoln Square Lanes, 4874 N.

  • Timberlanes is great old school place. My family will miss LSL terribly. It was fun going back in time and having live music there after the redo. Unique to our hood.

  • FYI - Fireside Bowl was used as a setting for the opening episode of Chicago Fire last season.

Hit and Run, 5500 block of N Major

The front end of my Civic was backed into while parked in front of my home on the night of August 30th. Due to height, think it had to be a truck or SUV with a trailer hitch. Lots of damage. No note. Big expense for me. Anyone have any info, or had a similar problem lately?

    Great event! Family had a blast.

    It was a great event. No doubt. Although a little hard to hear with the plane noise.

  • What would be better is if the Blackhawks Tickets weren't at Skyhigh prices, and available.

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  • Bad idea letting right turns in after tracks before N/W Hwy, too close to the tracks as drive-in Starbucks have backups into the street as I have have witnessed constantly at a Schiller Park location on Irving Rd. Customers don't care if they're blocking traffic. They want Starbucks.

    CPS Announces Revised Bus Stops for SY 15-16
    For students, this change will mean traveling an additional two blocks on average to reach their bus stop. Families have been notified of their children's new stop, which in most cases is the bus stop nearest to their home. If they have concerns about their child's assignment, however, parents may choose another nearby option.

  • Sandy in EdgeGlen EdgeGlen since 1987

    CJ, they’re not using the bus-cutting savings to hire more or better teachers. Casey, when my son was in high school the state was still reimbursing for transit, but that was over a decade ago so you may be correct.

  • @CJ Gladstone.... I may be wrong, but based on memory the CPS busing budget is c $50 million ?? annually. IMO if busing was not a cost item that $50million would not be appropriated and spent on anything.

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation...

    @CJ Gladstone.... I may be wrong, but based on memory the CPS busing budget is c $50 million ?? annually. IMO if busing was not a cost item that $50million would not be appropriated and spent on anything.

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation this way: Someplace c. 1965 Chicago's public schools were found to be separate and unequal, with substantially more being spent on neighborhood schools in white neighborhoods than schools in black neighborhoods (Hispanics, Asians and others did not register at the time). The school system was told to level the spending but that proved too hard to do in an acceptable way. So the court decided to let parents bus their kids to a school of choice, making the disparate spending patterns less motivating/source of complaint. White percentage of students in the system went into rapid decline and now is someplace c 11 - 13% (depends on who's stats you believe). So the courts recently said there was no longer a reason to bus for integration & level spending. But the bus habit remains because some schools/areas are deemed more desirable than others. And by direct awareness in some cases the long bus ride constitutes a free baby sitting service. TL:DR = the CPS tries to budget educational program costs uniformly across the whole City. Separate from that the buses cost c. $50 millions?? a year because of parents chasing after schools with better reputations --- which might or might not be factually supported depending on the compared schools.

    TL:TL:DR Busing is not cutting into staffing.

AT&T vs. Comcast (for internet)

We are debating (once again) to switch back to AT&T Uverse for our internet service. We don't have cable, so we depend on a reliable, fast internet connection. We are coming up on one year with Comcast and have been less than please. What provider to you use and why do you like them?

  • Chuck Johnson Assistant Director, New Hope Community Food Pantry

    We have been an AT&T internet customer for many years...first DSL, and now Uverse. Other than 1 start-up problem with the Uverse switch, we have been problem free.

  • Thanks Chuck! I regret leaving AT&T in the first place. Comcast as been terrible.

  • Chuck Johnson Assistant Director, New Hope Community Food Pantry

    That is good to know. Though I must say that our Comcast cable has been 99% reliable for years. Probably comes down to the block you are on.
