    If you're worried about that corner, I don't know what to tell you. Crime happens - not a lot of it in Ravenswood. Yadda yadda, you get my point. Statistically, you're probably not going to get shot down the street from the yoga place and hip biscuit/pie emporium.

    But more importantly, the Last Pit Stop failed not because of location, but because it was objectively awful. If this place is as good as we're hoping, location won't be a problem. Monti's manages steady business with a location you really have to be looking for.

    When it comes to food, no 2 people are the same. I thought they did a great breakfast/lunch but their BBQ was wimpy. If I was worried about that corner I wouldn't still be here 3 decades later. Crime happens everywhere, and if you're at the wrong place at the wrong time.... you get my point.

Made In Chicago: Woolly Mammoth

Woolly Mammoth, is located at 1513 W. Foster Ave., near Clark.  The shop sells antiques and oddities ranging anywhere from $5 to $10, to about $10,000.

    Made In Chicago: Woolly Mammoth
    CHICAGO (CBS) - Adam Rust and his wife Skye opened an antiques and oddities store seven years ago. "We like to intersperse the merchandise and items we have here with equal parts creep and humor." Adam Rust is the owner of Woolly Mammoth Antiques and Oddities in the Andersonville neighborhood.

  • That place is creepy. I don't think you can say made in Chicago when they are antiques. Perhaps it is more appropriate to say "repurposed" in chicago.

    123-Year-Old Wooden Church Likely To Be Razed After Sale To Developers
    ANDERSONVILLE - In a sale netting $750,000 for The Night Ministry, a 123-year-old wooden church in Andersonville will likely be demolished and replaced with single-family homes. The Night Ministry, a Chicago-based nonprofit that aids those struggling with homelessness, was given the former Summerdale Community Church at 1700 W. Farragut Ave.

  • Wazzup not available

    would make a great single family home - just needs the right architect- the exterior is lovely. imagine sleeping behind the 2nd floor windows!

  • Interesting that they got that much for that property. I wish someone would buy and develop the SW corner of Balmoral & Paulina, I think the lot size is similar to the lot the church sits on.
