Free mattress.

There is a mattress behind Nookies (the apartments that are north of their building) that is free. It's in good shape with no bugs. Please come pick it up if you would like it.

24-Hour Food?

Any suggestions for 24-hour food in the neighborhood? Even just 24-hours on the weekends is great. I'm looking for a place to go eat, not delivery. Used to frequent El Norte and I really miss it!

Berger and Broadway Armory Preschool Experiences?

I'm new to Edgewater. Hi! I'm hoping that someone here has experiences with the Kiddie College programs at Berger and/or the Broadway Armory. I can't decide which one to send my child to. I know these programs can be very different park to park. Any experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  • Edgewater Nora Agrees with Pink. Founder, Arka Pana Consulting.

    Welcome to the neighborhood, EdgeMom! I don't have any advice on the programs, just wanted to say welcome :).

  • AMLC of Chicago

    Hello, we don't have experience with the preschool programs, but my daughter has taken classes at both. We found the instructors to be much nicer and engaging at Berger Park. Berger Park also has a playground and a lot of green space outdoors.

Lost ring

I was walking home down Winthrop the evening of 8/21. I fell on uneven sidewalk. I didn't think my ring came off, but after searching high and low for over a week, I decided to give up and see if anyone might have found a diamond and white gold engagement ring. I will be happy to pay a significant reward. Thanks so much!

  • Here's a crazy idea, maybe you thought about it already. Find a reputable physic medium reader . May he or she can zero in on your ring. It maybe by chance still be in your apartment. Maybe we are looking in the wrong place. It's just a suggestion. Good luck sweet person. May god guide you and bless you. I am praying you find your ring.

  • I walk my dogs daily. What part of Winthrop? I'm on the 4600 block.

New establishment

Anybody know what's going into the former bar at the corner of Paulina, Peterson, and Ridge? It's been vacant for a few years and now it looks as if it's being prepped to re open soon....

Paying it forward, $50 off Tuft and Needle Mattress

Hi everyone,

Just moved back to the neighborhood and bought a new foam mattress online from Tuft and Needle. They make them in California and don't use any flame retardant chemicals. It shipped for free, has a 30 day easy return policy (they actually donate the mattress) and I haven't slept so comfortably in years! I'm totally thrilled with the quality. And it wasn't very expensive!

Anyway, they have me a coupon for $50 off to share with friends so I just thought I'd share it unless anyone else was interested. :)

Police Foot Patrols Coming To Devon

Police foot patrols are the oldest form of neighborhood crime deterrence and it is scheduled to begin again soon on Devon Ave. This style of policing has been on the decline, but since gas prices have steadily increased over the years, Chicago’s finest have been slowly bringing them back along with additional bicycle patrols. It’s not all to ward […]

    Come north....

  • Joe Moore Alderman, 49th Ward

    We have foot patrol officers on Morse on the weekdays during both days and evenings. I've asked Commander Waldera to explore the possibility of extending foot patrols to the weekends, as well.

Yesterday’s Storms Brought Havoc To Edgewater, See The Pics

Monday was officially the hottest day of the year with The National Weather Service saying that the heat index rose above 100 degrees in some areas. That heat fired up some nasty storms that engulfed the edgewater neighborhood. Around 12:30 p.m. the dark skies let loose with a large amount of rain and heavy winds. […]

  • Julia Z-N Andersonville Dog Mama

    Just responding to a comment about who's responsibility it is to care for trees. I Had To Say It may be a troll or maybe not. Just sayin'.

  • Sarahdonis 20 year neighbor

    Okay everyone, you may or may not have noticed that this thread was initiated about the storm. I sat on my 10th floor balcony and watched 2 heavy stone planters get blown over and smashed. I watched what appeared to be a chaise lounge cushion 'fly' from the direction of Sheridan, 20+ feet over Lane Park to the Lake. There were trees pulled up by the roots on Balmoral. The trees would have had to have been pruned to the trunk, in order to have survived that storm unscathed.

Trading Strawberry Plants

My June-bearing strawberry plants have overgrown my organic garden plot in Edgewater. Would anyone like to trade? I could use various garden supplies and seeds/seedlings. I also have mint plants I don't need. I believe that both strawberry and mint plants are perennials.

Facebook group for Edgewater families! moms, dads, kids

I thought it would be nice to get to know neighbors via facebook and to share things like baby items for sale, or anything child/family related. Playgroups, classes, nanny search, nanny share, questions about kids etc. All ages are welcomed, just love building a tighter "smaller" community. Here is the name of the group Edgewater, Andersonville, (and nearby) Chicago babies, kids, moms and dads

  • Now

    If you live east of Broadway, north of Devon, or west of Clark, you're going to be discouraged from joining Ruth's List. But if you live in Edgewater Glen, Andersonville or even Ravenswood please sign up. They are very welcoming to those who are very much like themselves.

  • Now

    Oh one other group Ruth's List welcomes almost unconditionally, the NCA crowd. All others need not apply.

Looking to rent a parking space

I'm looking to rent a parking space somewhere near the 1500 block of Rosemont Ave. Please let me know if you know of anything.

  • Nan

    If you post notices, you may want to create an email address just for that purpose. I wouldn't list your regular email address, and definitely not your phone number. Too many crazies out there......

  • I saw two signs today on Catalpa about parking available for rent. One on a building on the southside of the street east of Clark. #773-275-6070
    The other on highrise building on Catalpa just east of Broadway on the northside of the street just before the CTA tracks.

Hardwood floor refinishing

Can anyone recommend a hardwood floor company?

  • JPC 20 + in the neighborhood

    We just used Modern Quality Flooring. 773 381 1087. They transformed 100-year old floors that had been basically trashed into something essentially new ones (this included some patching and repairing at points.

  • Dirk A. Gould 10+ year Resident and Promoter of RP Real Estate

    Cornell Flooring. Many of my clients have used them and they were all very happy. Cornell is not cheap; probably middle of the road in price. But you can expect high quality work.
