Hardwood floor refinishing

We are looking to refinish our hardwoods and are looking for recommendations. Thanks

  • Thanks for looking JC up on YELP; I never had. Yes, he tends to take referrals from customers. He may be 'old school' since he has been business for so long..but I"ll mention it.

  • Achilles Flaneur ear witness

    Also highly recommend JW flooring for all the reasons Kitty hop mentioned

Recommendations on local veterinarians?

  • LincolnSquarist LSRCC's biggest fan girl.

    BLVD Vet at California and Armitage is the best. My cats love going there and Dr. Dylan and Dr. Julie are both fantastic. Can't recommend them enough!

  • Meggg N California

    I also use Boulevard Veterinary. Love the people there and they love my pup.

The Light at Diversey and California

The last few days two of the traffic lights facing westbound on Diversey at California are askew. How does this happen? Doubt the wind blew them out of place- I called someone I know at the city to alert them of the problem- It should be fixed soon.

I also mentioned, there is a sign facing east, that is no longer valid- ("On Coming Traffic Has Extended Green" ..Maybe it did, no longer the case. (see pic)

I also suggested a left turn signal for the morning and afternoon rush should also be considered. One can sit at that light for 3 or 4 cycles when it's busy- a left turn arrow would move the traffic better.

  • I am not as familiar with the issue that Bart spoke of, but I could see how that would be a problem (thanks for reaching out). I have an issue that is tangentially connected. Just a half block north of that intersection, on northbound California, when entering the outbound lanes...

    I am not as familiar with the issue that Bart spoke of, but I could see how that would be a problem (thanks for reaching out). I have an issue that is tangentially connected. Just a half block north of that intersection, on northbound California, when entering the outbound lanes of the Kennedy expressway, you need to have an arrow to turn on to the on-ramp. I appreciate having an arrow when it is congested, but I don't see the purpose when I am getting on the expressway before 6am and waiting when there isn't any southbound traffic coming on California.

    Maybe I am alone with this complaint, but I would like to contact the alderman. Any idea what ward that would be? Thanks for your time.

  • Thanks for this, Bart! I've lived on Cali just south of Logan for 12 years and would welcome left arrows on diversey! Also, Sal, agree with your comment too. Certain times of day, the green arrow to enter the expressway is great, but for the vast majority of the time, it's unnecessary.

Found keys on Palmer!

We found some keys on Palmer. Didn't know if protocol was to pick them up or leave them. We set them by the green electric or whatever box just outside St Sylvester's on Palmer.

I have a picture of them if you want to see them... PM me.

Lost Pitbull Mix

Heard a lot of barking just now and looked out the window to see the police rescue a light brown/golden pitbull (maybe) mix roaming the street. He had a collar, 1700 block of N Whipple. The police were able to get him into the back of their SUV. Probably on his way to animal control?, hopefully he's chipped. Also hope the owner finds him, and he's not neglected, especially since it's so cold out. If you live nearby and know the neighbor please pass this along! Thanks.

  • RenaissanceGirl - Relaxx. Nothing was assumed, I was merely stating that dogs left unattended are known to be stolen. If you are unaware of this fact, it is a regular occurrence in the city. I NEVER leave my dog, solo, anywhere. It's a good reminder for ALL dog owners.

    ** Glad the owner and dog were reunited!!! **

  • Cat Wrangler happy Humboldt Park resident

    Great news! Good work neighbors!!

I'm making a nice dinner Saturday and want to get a loaf of really good hearty bread on the side. Any recommendations around the neighborhood?

  • Best bread in the city D'Amatos on Grand a couple blocks west of Halsted. Worth the trip

  • Panaderia La Central
    2218 n California for great French bread!

Lot across from the 14th district

Any idea what's going in the empty lot across from the police station? It recently got a fence with green mesh around it and was curious as to if it is being developed

  • Is that the lot that is owned by the mideastern restaurant by the L station? Maybe they're just trying to secure it
