Is it me, or are planes flying non-stop from the east over our neihgborhood? They seem much louder. I think the 40th ward/arcadia terrace should have been mentioned in the Sun Times article today. My windows don't rattle...but the sound is incredibly loud and annoying.

Does anyone know about a Zoning Request made by Alderman Silverstein? We received a notice stating that she wants to change a Shopping District - Motor Vehicle Related District to a Residential Single Unit at 6301-6317 N. Western. I am trying to figure out how a single residential building can take up such a large amount of space. I am also concerned about the impact it will have on parking. I will be contactin the Alderman's office but was wondering if anyone has heard of this?
Hi, Everyone--wanted to let everyone know that registration for Peterson Garden Project (www.petersongarden.org) is now open. There is a lovely garden called Land on Lincoln on the corner of Lincoln and Sacramento, and 2014 memberships are still available today (they're first come, first served).
Registration and all info is available online here: http://salsa.petersongarden.org/p/salsa/web/common/public/content?content_item_KEY=13289
It's a beautiful way to meet your neighbors, grow food (this is a garden devoted to growing food, not flowers), and spend time outside in the neighborhood this summer. Join us!
Alderman candidate Don Gordon is blocking free speech on his website. It is like what Putin does.

I live NOH in a four-unit condo building. We do not have recycle bins and I have no idea how to get one. I find it hard to believe that a supposedly 'green city' does not provide a recycling service for its' residents. I used to live in a different ward and we had blue bins. Does the city only provide bins to some wards and not others?! We contacted the 49th ward office and were told that the recycle bins are not available for our block. But, some of our neighbors have them so I am not sure what is going on. Any information that you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Any recommendations for an auto body shop?

Hi! Would anyone know where I could get access to borrow/rent a working reel-to-reel player or find someone who repairs them (preferably somewhere on the North Side)? I have some old tapes that are either priceless family "letters," or useless music taped from the radio. I also have an old, non-working reel-to-reel machine that should be in mostly good shape, but probably needs new rubber belts or something. Any advice out there? Thanks!

I walked over there today after going to the Indian markets on Devon and was shocked to find the windows papered over. I googled it and I don't find any report of them closing and there's a Yelp review from as recently as February. Please tell me they just moved and I missed it. It was my go-to place for Eastern European foods.
No Matter Who Owns you now, GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK!
I have missed EveryBlock. So glad you are back!
Great site.... Happy to see you are back...
