Bed Store on 35th Going Going Gone

I see the bed store which has been there for yours has moved from the corner of 35th and Halsted right under Bridgeport's own version of the NY Tines Square sign. It is all cleared out so it does not look like its being remodeled or anything. Can we even hope for something decent to open up? By the way for New Years we should let the ball drop from this location lol

    A new sports bar would be a long shot given how difficult it is to get a liquor license in the city especially since an elementary school is down the street. You would have to be a political insider to get one of those. I would bet that is why Rings and Things really do not care about how horrible their service is knowing their payments to the machine keep any competition away.

    Since the closing of Bridgeport Comics and Games, it would be nice to see the toy store next door to expand into that space. Another option would be the pet store there expand into the space while partnering with a veterinarian.

    Perhaps Rodriguez Tae Kwon Do could move there. That would be a nice large location for a dojang.

Bridgeport Comics & Games closed?

I just recently noticed that Bridgeport Comics & Games on Halsted closed... are there any other games/hobby stores in the area?

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    They anounced on their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/bridgeportcomicsandgames) that they're closing up shop. I know they had a rough holiday season, with a burst pipe causing them to close for a number of days.

  • I am sure the street closures to through traffic on Halsted didn't help at all. Now the Mattress store is closing. At this point who ever becomes Alderman needs to do something fast or Halsted business district will be completely gone. It is already on life support.

    But first Rahm should have cut back on the perks to the aldermen, such as this snow plowing, and the security details for Burke and Daley -- WHO BOTH HAVE TWO PAYCHECKS and should be able to afford to pay their own drivers/bodyguards.

    Hi, I am a former teacher with 10 years of classroom experience in K-4th grade. I left teaching to have my baby girl, now 3.5-years-old. After she turned 1, I started working as a nanny, first for a family with 3 children (2.5 months, 4 years, & 5.5 years), then for a family with 2 children (2.5 months and 2.5 years). I am currently looking for a new opportunity because the family I was with moved out of state. Ideally, I am looking to provide care for 1-2 children in my own home (in Canaryville, near 47th/Halsted) along with my own daughter. However, I am open to other options. I would love to discuss with you what your needs are and how I might meet them. I am able to provide a complete resume with references and I can be reached by call/text at 312-437-0606 or by email at nadiaes@yahoo.com.

I can't help but think of all the railroads and viaducts in some areas where there was dismal support for Rahm Emanuel during this recent election. Englewood is one area lacking support. It's a strong African American community and is the same area where Demario Bailey, 15 years old, was killed (@64th and State) over his winter coat while on the way to a basketball game. Let's get better lighting, improve roads conditions inside, increase patrols, make reporting viaduct concerns more efficient, hold railroads and city services accountable, and clean things up. Better yet, please read the comments left by citizens all over Chicago. We have been at this for 6 months now. Take back our viaducts, take back Chicago!! Please share our petition at www.chicagoviaduct.com for #health and #safety!! Thanks.

Looks Like A Runoff!

With 36 of 38 precincts counted, it looks probable that there will be a runoff between Daley and Kozlar -- presuming there isn't any last-minute hanky-panky. Maureen Sullivan's supporters are going to be a big key. Enormous dollars and efforts are going to be expended by the machine, but an alliance between Kozlar and Sullivan supporters would be formidable. No matter what happens, Kozlar, Sullivan, and the voters in the 11th Ward have taken a major step forward in restoring democracy there. Congratulations!

  • JP in Bridgeport lifetime bridgeport resident

    I totally agree with Michellle's statement that if Kozlar wants Maureen voters votes then give her a position in helping our community and let's work together so we can all win.

  • Rebecca Mantz Friendly neighbor

    Kozlar is from Bridgeport right? I agree though, he is genuine and passionate. We need someone like him who will listen to us as community members.

Updated Feb 25

I agree with this statement. Found it on another page about the election for Alderman.

All you Daley Thompson people keep talking about age and inexperience. What about my nephew who joined the Marines at age 18 right of high school? It's ok for him to defend your freedom but it's not ok for someone who's 26 to run for Alderman? You people are a bunch of hypocrites. I'm voting for John Kozlar!

  • south loop realist political activist

    Everyone must come out to stop the murder, tax, contract, fixing family the Daleys from getting another of their own into government. He must be stopped and now we are ready for six more weeks of Jeanne Marie shilling for the low life Daley so she can get more real estate referrals.

Hi Everyone! I'm Pam from Gold Coast! I know I'm posting a little out of my neighborhood but I just wanted to say thanks and recommend my Dog Sitter who's local to your area and who's taken such wonderful care of my beloved Golden Retriever Max for almost 2 years now since my back surgery left me unable to care for him. Max is 16 years old and I know he wouldn't be around today if it wasn't for Kevin's compassion and care. Max could not get up on his own until Kevin took him in after my back surgery and helped strengthened his legs so he could get up and walk on his own again. My back condition keeps me from having Max back home at my condo but I assure you, he loves his new home and all his new friends! I visit him every week and couldn't say more about Kevin and how passionate, loving and accommodating he is to all off his clients. With that said I will leave you with a photo of Max and his best buddy Ragazzo! If you would like more info contact me or contact Kevin at Dogouton35th@gmail.com

  • Keep cool baybee. You have to realize your post is just vague enough to read like spam. It also looks fishy when this is your first post. I'm glad it isn't spam. I'm even happier your dogs receive excellent care. Kevin sounds great, and good for you for taking such good care of your doggies.

Removal of turn lanes

Have there been discussions / postings about the removal of turn lanes at 31st & Halsted and 35th & Morgan? Following the latest repairs / road work at these intersections, turn lanes were removed - the lane to turn westbound onto 35th St. from northbound Morgan St. and the lane to turn westbound onto 31st St. from northbound Halsted St. Removal of these turn lanes has a significant impact on traffic since these are both busy intersections in the neighborhood. Also, they didn't remove the eastbound turn lanes from the southbound direction of Morgan and Halsted, so it makes even less sense to have removed the westbound turn lanes.

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    Shoot, at this point I'd settle for just an explanation of why they need the right lane blocked off on 31st still.

  • MLP19 Keeping an eye out

    I realize now that they are still doing an extensive amount of work at 31st & Halsted, but I'm still curious to see whether that turn lane will reappear when the work is finally completed.

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    Yeah,I guess every time I think they've finished working on a given part of that area, it's blocked off again a week later.

The Opt Out bill –HB 306 – is in the Illinois legislature. Passage means that parents can decide what tests their child will take. Passage of HB 306 is the first step to get our state politicians to stop wasting tax dollars on 10 to 21 tests per year. It is the first step toward making our politicians understand that we want our children to learn about art, music, social studies, and science; values and skills that help kids develop the ability to cooperate, solve problems, reason, make sound judgments,and know basic civics. You can help get this bill passed by calling Rep. Acevedo (773-843-1500) or Rep. Esther Golar (773-925-6580). Help get our education system back on tract and stop paying billions to testing and grading corporations.
