    I registered as a user on Everyblock because I thought it would be a helpful and informative way to interact with my neighbors. The content that some of you post is disturbing because it is rude, inappropriate, unnecessarily combative, and of a bullying nature. Not naming anyone here but you know who you are. I've been using the internet since the early 90's and have always viewed it as a powerful way of communication. I am always mystified to see the people that use the internet as a way to put others down or hurt and bully others while remaining anonymous. I'm guessing that everyone of you that is obnoxious would not have the courage to do what you do face-to-face. Civility is not dead and it is valued by many, many people, myself included. I do wish the moderators of this site exercised some sort of guidelines in the posts that are allowed to remain. Other sites exercise some type of monitoring and it would be nice to see such monitoring on Every Block.

Lakeshore

What's going on via Lakeshore drive? It's closed off at the sheridan entrance.

  • I have contacted 311 thru the website that there is a lot of plastic bags and clothing dangling from the trees in this area. At least twice in the past month. As soon as I read the tribunes headline of suspicious items found and the location I guessed it was a homeless person. Glad it wasn't something deadly.

    Yea I remember we were driving and they had the entire place shut down.....lots of cops everywhere. LOL Crazy.

Building Condition Report Recommendations

Does anyone know of a good, affordable company or individual that can do a full evaluation of a building - e.g. evaluating the roof, electrical,heating, and water systems, and overall condition of the common areas (inside and outside) of the building - not individual units? We're a relatively small condo association and we'd like to have one done and am having a hard time finding one.

Does anyone know of a good, affordable company or individual that can do a full evaluation of a building - e.g. evaluating the roof, electrical,heating, and water systems, and overall condition of the common areas (inside and outside) of the building - not individual units? We're a relatively small condo association and we'd like to have one done and am having a hard time finding one. We've already looked on Yelp and contacted several places, either they dealt only with individual condo inspections, were not thorough enough, or didn't return phone calls. In the case of one of the most popular companies on Yelp's list, Domicile Consulting - they were very difficult to reach - by phone or through their website. Tried contacting them for months! When I finally got them, they promised to send a draft contract out and never did. Then when I tried calling them back to remind them, still never returned my calls. I would not say I'm difficult to deal with. At any rate, I would welcome any suggestions!

  • Ann - What is the purpose of the evaluation? The company/person that you seek to hire will probably vary depending on what you need. For example, do you need the building evaluated for real estate transaction purposes, fiscal planning or are there building condition issues that need to be addressed? Are you considering improving the building somehow - new windows, mechanical system, energy efficiency, etc.? Your answers will help determine the type of evaluation that is necessary and the correct professional for the evaluation.

  • Ann

    Good Questions Chad -
    We want do some proactive planning because we have an older building that is in need of repairs and we want to determine the best ways to make these repairs, get cost estimates, and create a timeline for the repairs need to be made. We want, as much as possible, to avoid being caught by surprise with a huge special assessment and/or the boiler breaking down in the middle of the winter, for example.

Are you on Medicare/Medicaid and is a senior? Have you seen the new Seniors only doctors office located on 1541 W. Devon across from the hardware store? If not you need to, Oak Street Health is a very unique company taking on improving Older adults health by offering services that you won't find in many doctors offices. First they offer rides for seniors and as you can remember with all the crazy winter weather we had it was extremely difficult to get to your doctors appointments if you rely on the CTA to get around. Oak Street Health patients enjoyed being picked up and dropped off for their appointments. They also have a community room that all patients can come and enjoy anytime even if they just want to hangout and have coffee with friends. Plus they are able to enjoy many of the programs happening in the community room such as workouts, presentation on diabetes and other health related issues. I hope you really take a look at it if you or someone you know is a senior who is on Medicare.

Affordable spaces for 100 guests in the Andersonville/Edgewater area?

I've seen this post before but wanted to see if anyone had any FRESH/NEW ideas of affordable spaces that would cater to a decent-sizes group to celebrate getting legally married! I wrote down every suggestion from past threads but wanted to reach out in case any of you have found another place we could consider. Thanks for your time!

  • One last update...we decided to go with Hamburger Mary's for their pricing, facilities that caters to a large number of guests, and all that comes along with it! I highly recommend working with them and their event planner, Shanna Behrend, has been a really positive experience. Thank you, everyone, for the wonderful suggestions!

Mariano's is hopping(?)

Anyone know why Mariano's rooftop parking lot is full today? It may be staff preparing for the opening - but if so, I sure hope their employees don't drive to work (or park somewhere else). The lot is literally packed!

  • chrisfinn bornagain chicagoan

    And the Doms on B'way closed at the same time as the one @Sheridan & Foster but is already opening this coming week. Strange that WF is doing nothing at that one except put paper on the windows & needs over a year to get it ready.

  • ScottK Near Glenwood/Devon in North Edgewater

    Looking forward to using the 151 again, almost door to door, to discover Mariano's. I really miss the Dominick's and will be glad to shop at that location again.

March's Final Police Blotter, by Mark Schipper (April's Blotters to come)

The 20-year-old victim was attacked about 11:40 p.m. near the corner of N. Kenmore and W. Hollywood avenues. He said a man in his middle or late 40s had confronted him and claimed he had never returned a cell-phone that belonged to him, the attacker.

This article has 14 other Chicago locations (Show)

A mother of one of the boys accompanied them about 7:20 p.m. to 20th District police headquarters, 5400 N. Lincoln, to make the report. 

The boys said they were shoved from behind while riding through an alley just south of 5600 N. Lincoln Ave. Each of their cell-phones fell out of their pockets when they hit the ground. 

A woman was robbed March 17 stepping off a CTA bus near 4800 N. Broadway, CPD reported. 

Michael Tingling of the 7100 block of N. Ridge Blvd. was pronounced dead of a heart attack March 19 at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. 

Tingling, 59, passed away about 2:45 p.m., less than 45 minutes after he'd been in a fist fight with a stranger on the 7100 block of N. Clark St. 

That stranger turned out to be 59-year-old Joseph Firek of the 7000 block of N. Clark St. He was identified by multiple eye-witnesses as the second man in the fight. Firek, who is white, has been charged with First Degree Murder and a Hate Crime. 

The 19-year-old had been attacked on the 1200 block of W. Albion Ave. about 8:20 p.m., according to CPD. He told officers he had heard fast footsteps coming from behind just before a man grabbed hold of him and his backpack.

The victim had been on the 2700 block of W. Lunt Ave. when he was surrounded. The first man approached him from the front while the second and third came from behind, he said. 

The victim, 32, said she had returned about 9:30 p.m. to her apartment building on the 2400 block of W. Fitch Ave. She had seen two men standing near the back door. 

The boys were walking on the 2900 block of W. Cortland Ave. when they encountered a middle-aged black male. He had pointed to a white van parked on the street and asked if they wanted to get inside. 

A 10-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl were walking to school on the 1700 block of N. Larrabee St. when a gray sedan pulled alongside them. The driver had rolled down a window and said, "Come over here." 

A third home on the 2100 block of Sheffield was broken into the afternoon of March 17. 

Two other homes were damaged on the 2100 block of N. Fremont St. and the 800 block of W. Armitage Ave. between March 14-and-16. 

Two other homes were damaged on the 2100 block of N. Fremont St. and the 800 block of W. Armitage Ave. between March 14-and-16.

Iconic Charlie Chaplin Theatre Up For Auction

Commuters and local residents pass by this unique building everyday at 5757 North Ridge and ask themselves what is happening with that unusual building? The building has a lot of history but the original purpose was that of a silent movie theatre for Charlie Chaplin.  Built in 1918, the space functioned as a movie goer’s paradise until the mid-1930s. Since then it has been used for multiple purposes that were very unkind to its structure.

The Landmark in Andersonville Ready For a New Chapter

Jan Baxter believes in her core that it’s not enough to just own and operate a business. Rather,  it is the responsibility of everyone in the community to invest in and participate in growth and development for the good of all residents. She has worked tirelessly to promote Andersonville both as a resident and a shop owner for the last 50 years. Anyone who knows Jan personally can attest to the endless hours she has volunteered and invested into the community she calls home. The Landmark is a staple boutique. The two-story shop features earrings, gifts and art on the first floor, antiques in the basement and a salon run by her daughter Jennifer on the second floor. The neighborhood has always enjoyed the friendly and inviting atmosphere at The Landmark, where customers are greeted by name when they walk in the door. Jan’s commitment to the community, from the annual shopping night for kids to Mid Summer Fest,  has been a special love affair with the Chicago north side neighborhood affectionately known as Andersonville.
