    Buy 2, Tear 1 Down: Lincoln Park Homes Bundled for $5.1M
    Expansive yards are difficult to find in crowded Lincoln Park, where the typical lot size is 25 feet wide by 125 feet deep. Those who want more space (and have the money to go after it) instead may buy two neighboring houses and tear one down for the precious outdoor space they seek.

Historic Logan Boulevard Church Closing, Last Service Set For Sunday

The church was founded at Temple Hall, 430 W. Fullerton Ave., in 1901 and moved into its current location on the boulevard in 1906.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

One of the main reasons the church is being forced to close is the recent departure of Nuestra Señora de las Américas, which had been sharing the church space at 2900 W. Logan Blvd. and covering half of the bills.

Nuestra Señora de las Américas, the oldest Latino congregation in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago, moved to its new location along with St. Luke's in December at 2837 W. Armitage Ave.

    Historic Logan Boulevard Church Closing, Last Service Set For Sunday
    LOGAN SQUARE - One of the oldest congregations in Logan Square is closing its doors due to money issues and a shrinking group of churchgoers. The Episcopal Church of the Advent, which is housed in a historic structure on Logan Boulevard, has not been able to fight off funding issues and a dwindling congregation.

    There's a backstory there which I know something about. Former Ald. Ray Colon's 2003 campaign was largely funded by a Church of the Advent parishioner, now deceased. After Colon was elected, and the Rector had left, the ministry to the homeless lost a good deal of day-to-day steam (there was no full-time cleric until 2006). The homeless kept coming looking for assistance, and Colon displayed an utter lack of leadership on the issue (perhaps because he was trying to curry favor with Daley, whose hand-picked alderman, Wilma Colom, Colon had beaten). Homelessness is not simply a public safety issue.

  • Pem Shober's beautiful huge courtyard building nw corner Schubert @ Spaulding now part of Mark Fishman real estate empire. Sad irony. Fishman became largest developer $contributor to Colon; > $50,000 from many LSq property LLCs over time.

Black and white cat outaide our home.

There is a black and white cat that is near our window and making contact with our cats. The cat is mainly black with some white. He/she will probably be back since its interacting with our cats. If anyone has lost their cat or is missing, this cat is on the fullerton and southport block. I took a photo. Hopefully its clear enough.

  • You may want to post this photo on the Lost Cats of Illinois Facebook page and the Craig's List lost and found page.

  • Thank you for all the information. We haven't seen the cat since they day..although my female cat waits anxiously every evening to see him. I'm going to make some calls and hopefully this cat belongs to someone but if not it can go to a shelter.
