Tour 165 Years of Chicago Houses in Five Minutes

Ravenswood's Abbott House at 4605 N. Hermitage (1891, Queen Anne), is immediately recognizable by its purple wood siding. In Old Irving Park, the John and Clara Merchant House (1872, Second Empire) in the 3800 block of North Kostner Avenue, gets a nod for its unusual four-sided mansard roof.

    Tour 165 Years of Chicago Houses in Five Minutes
    LINCOLN SQUARE - Chicago's skyscrapers are total attention magnets, but at street level it's the houses that give the city its character. This slideshow, put together by the folks at Rent Cafe, features 165 years of Chitown's residential styles, from a gothic revival built in 1850 in Marquette Park to a contemporary/modern Bucktown home built in 2014.

  • I volunteer at the Irving park food pantry. Every Wednesday I marvel at the merchant house. It's really beautiful and so lovingly cared for. Thanks to everyone that owns historic homes and respects what they mean

Parkway Tree

Has anyone else had trouble having a tree planted on the parkway in front of your house? I have called and emailed the alderman's office for almost 2 years to have one put in and am told over and over, "It's coming." I'd like to plant one myself, but I'm not sure if there are specifications on what is planted.

    My katalpa tree was destroyed by lightning the city came and tore it down. I called 311 they told me what I had to pick from two days later they planted it. It's a maple

  • Ten years ago, we waited 6 months max to get a tree planted in our parkway. They even asked us what kind we preferred, and voila, an oak was put in, as requested! I realize the city is in worse shape financially after the 2008 crash, but it is sad that neighborhood services like tree planting seem to be on the back burner.

To the kids who stole my back wheel

I'm sorry you feel like you're in an okay place where you are good to steal a back wheel from a bike locked up at the Irving park blue line. It was my mistake to lock it up with just a u lock, I went out drinking and left my bike rather than riding it home drunk in the dark. It's an army green deep v wheel, you need to order a special tube for it online. You must need it more than I do.

  • How do you know it was kids?

  • They clearly weren't pro bike thieves or they would have taken the whole thing. Also they bent the heck out of my frame, I'd like to think any competent adult would not only know how to operate a wrench but also that stealing a bike wheel is an idiotic thing.
