Rogers Park in The Guardian

The Guardian recently featured a story about Rogers Park, by a Northestern U. professor who lives in the neighborhood.

    Confessions of a reluctant gentrifier
    Shortly after we married, my husband and I moved to a part of Chicago that was once known as No Man's Land. At the turn of the century, this was the sparsely populated place between the cities of Chicago and Evanston, a place where the streets were unpaved and unlit.

  • Argumentum ad nauseum.

  • 9+ years old or not...I appreciated this article. Thanks for sharing. I do find it amusing that the author did eventually move to Evanston though. HA!

Spanish Conversation

Sorry for the confusion as to day and time for us to have our first Spanish conversation group get off the ground. I've been trying to accommodate everyone on 2 different sites.
Let's meet this Friday at the Royal at 7pm. If we decide to make changes, por lo menos podemos discutir el sujeto en espanol!

Gracias por el interes, y nos vemos el viernes!

Hasta luego,
Barbara

  • that would be a very interesting conversation group with Pedro. But I kinda doubt he'd ever dare meet any EB folks face to face.

  • Pedro Garciano Runner, bodybuilder, healthy eating.

    I'm not afraid of anyone. Is that what you think? LOL
    I'm 32 years old and in very good shape.

Spanish Conversation

Spanish speakers from average to good. How about
meeting once a week around 7pm for an hour's worth
of Spanish conversation? I'd like to form a group.
Anyone interested? We could get together at the Royal,
corner of Sheridan and Pratt.

Buenas Tardes a Todos!
Apologies for any inconvenience. I posted on another site as well, and several people are interested in taking part in our Spanish conversation group. As it stands now, Fridays, late afternoon or early evening (4-8) seems to be good for us (including me!) to "charlar, divertirnos, y practicar" el espanol.
I'm hoping we can meet this coming Friday, the 28th, at the Royal. If you're interested, please let me know what would work time-wise. I can also estimate how many people may be coming.
Gracias mil.

Please stop, or at least shut the window everyone down the whole street can hear you and someone might call the ASPCA for killing that cat

Gunshots in Rogers Park.

Anyone else hear gunshots around 1:35am this morning near Jonquil or Juneway? There were 4-5 shots in a row.

  • I heard that too, around 2:05am. I lived on Sheridan but my room is facing east lake terr and Rogers. I thought the shots came from East lake Terr. Anyone knows where that happened?

  • Yeah, same alley as above. Maybe this is weird, but it almost sounded like someone was bored and decided to unload a clip, because there were two slow shots, a pause, and then six more shots in succession. I didn't hear any voices or anything afterward.

FREE Over the bed medical table + file cabinet

First come basis after notifying me. I live in Rogers Park on Sheridan Road. If you can take downstairs an over-the-bed medical table and/or a 4-drawer letter sized file cabinet (with key) from my 2nd floor residence, they're yours!

Both items are in pristine condition. I purchased the medical table some years ago from a used furniture place and used it for craft making purposes. The file cabinet is taupe in color, purchased from Office Depot for household rather than...

First come basis after notifying me. I live in Rogers Park on Sheridan Road. If you can take downstairs an over-the-bed medical table and/or a 4-drawer letter sized file cabinet (with key) from my 2nd floor residence, they're yours!

Both items are in pristine condition. I purchased the medical table some years ago from a used furniture place and used it for craft making purposes. The file cabinet is taupe in color, purchased from Office Depot for household rather than industrial use.

*** To my surprise, I was informed by the Salvation Army pickup service: 1) NO medical items, 2) NO office furniture, including (but not limited to) chairs and desks, 3) NO medical furniture, including (but not limited to) chairs and stools, 4) NO bookcases that should be affixed to a wall 5) NO books other than novels, 6) NOT PERMITTED to pickup items in an unfinished basement area, e.g., boiler, overhead exposed pipes.

Thanks in advance.

  • Ary, click on Kateri's name in their post, and then choose "send email" from the bottom of the list on the right side.

  • Kateri in Rogers Park artist at heart

    I am awaiting a reply from Ary to set up a mutually agreed upon time for viewing and/or pickup. I included my phone number in my email to him.

    Anyone else interested? Please feel free to email me.

    For some reason, I can't find who it was that suggested I contact the BROWN ELEPHANT. I will contact the Brown Elephant if this ad remains in limbo. The filing cabinet and bed table really are in pristine condition.

Police blocking roads feeding into Sheridan Rd. Any thoughts or info?

  • Laurie A. DeMeyer Voted best Bodyworker in Chicago&Im in RP;)

    They are filming Netflix show called "The Patriot",Chicago Justice and others around Chicagoland. It's awesome that film is coming back to ChiTown. Mayor Daley had put a HUGE tax on us/them back in mid to late 90's and a lot of the stages and crews left here BUT that was finally lifted and incentives were brought back to the table about 10+ years ago now soooooo we finally have more jobs in the film land!! Such a great city to shoot locations!!

  • Good to hear, Laurie! It's great to see so many productions happening around the city.

    d3, I have never noticed Live's alleged "uninformed opinion of NOH." It has been fairly clear that s/he ridicules certain people, including you, who leave themselves open to it. Live seems to know a good deal more about RP than do you.

  • As someone who has lived north of Howard and enjoyed it very much and now lives closer to the new development on Morse I can speak with credibility. The little dipsy comment about an uninformed opinion is silly twit-talk.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    What great news: Heat It Up, sponsored by the Rogers Park Business Alliance, raised $11,200 to assist food insecure families.

  • Well that's not much of a tax foot imprint per pound of chili and because of overhead the humanity creation ratio for food insecurity would be better spent tipping the balance toward buildings slotted for neoliberal educational opportunities.
