Empty Storefronts on Clybourn (b/w Fullerton and Ashland)

Does anyone have any info on what is being done with several of the empty storefronts on Clybourn between Fullerton and Ashland? Among some of the places that have closed and/or have been empty for awhile are the Harolds Fried Chicken Place, the place right next to that (says Illuminati on the stone), Polka, and the Nail Tyme salon just north of Fullerton. Marshfields Urban Grill is finally going to open in the old pizza spot at Clybourn and Marshfield, but other than that it seems that more is closing than not. Thanks for any info.

    This may be getting waaay ahead of things. But i'd love to see the Cherry avenue bridge on the north side of goose island expanded for car capacity. It would be great to have it connect north up to kingsbury and eventually to south southport. I think it would be a great relief for all the traffic going up halsted and clybourn around north avenue. It would also help out if the Ashland BRT were to go forward to provide another North South route for people that need to avoid the 'left turn prohibition' on ashland. To make it continuous i also recommend rebuilding the ogden bridge across the river - but maybe these ideas defeat the purpose of having an 'island?'

  • Anyone have more info on the former Ace Bar site? Just moved back to the area after living off Janssen about 4 years ago. At that point most spaces between Southport and Ashland off Fullerton were occupied - was kind of surprised at the amount of vacant storefronts now!

Trim Carpenter?

I had a water leak (ugh) through the top of my sliding glass door and I need to find a carpenter (a trim carpenter, I think) to replace the water damaged wood around the top and side of the window frame. Has anyone had this type of work done who can recommend a service provider? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

  • Mr. Eric near north full timer

    You just need a good carpenter. Call Tom at 7735929150. Tell him Eric from orchard park recommended him to you. Good luck.

  • You can also have Salvador at JD construction quote you on your job. He used to be the main contractor at Master Handyman so look up the reviews on yelp. His cell is 773-620-4115. He does great work and is reasonable. He has done 6 projects, large and small, and are very happy with his work.

  • You might give TrimLogic a call. They specialize in custom trim work. Might be more specialized than what you need, but thought you might want to take a look.

Fantasy football draft party

I'm looking for a spot to hold a fantasy football draft party this year. Preferably a sports bar with wifi. Any suggestions?

  • Ty T Native Texan. 5 years in LP.

    Not a sports bar, but the new place Beermiscuous is really cool and I think they have a little private room you can book. Or you can probably just hang out on the couches and drink awesome beer while drafting.

Electric Supplier Choice Confirmation (Notice from ComEd)

Received a letter from ComEd stating:" We have received notice that your electric supplier of choice is being changed to Integrys Energy Services, Inc......Your electric supplier may have been changed as part of a governmental aggregation program managed by your municipality, county or township."

Did anyone else get this?

We definitely didn't proactively opt in or opt out of anything, so I'm guessing we were switched automatically. Not sure of the ramifications of this. Thoughts?

  • Interesting. Integrys didn't even show up as an option when I went to that site and typed in my zip code. Hopefully, the differences between all the companies are nominal.

  • Be careful what you read on the internet. There's a lot of discussion of the rates for Integrys that were set last March. Back then there were only two monthly fees: $22.36 or $9.06. In July. the city renegotiated the deal with Integrys and there are now 10 different fee...

    Be careful what you read on the internet. There's a lot of discussion of the rates for Integrys that were set last March. Back then there were only two monthly fees: $22.36 or $9.06. In July. the city renegotiated the deal with Integrys and there are now 10 different fee tiers.

    I am also sure that someone will point you to this calculator:
    http://www.chicagopowercalculator.com/
    which uses the old outdated rates and will not give you an accurate answer for the new rates.

    The Illinois Commerce Commission has a long list of available alternative suppliers here
    http://www.pluginillinois.org/offers.aspx?said=1
    But note that the list does not include municipal aggregation deals like the one with Integrys.

    There is a discussion of the new rates and what to do here:
    https://chicago.everyblock.com/announcements/jul23-integrys-yes-no-6274153/
    I hope you will read through that thread and if you still have any questions ask over there.

LOST: Backpack & Bike

My boyfriend was in a bike accident on Saturday night, somewhere around the Wrightwood and Clark area--he says it was one of the side streets, but he can't remember exactly. The hospital nor the police claim to have his things. He had a black and white bike, a helmet, a brown camouflage backpack with his wallet, keys on a green Roosevelt keychain, and his phone in a green and white case.

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    I hope he is doing OK. And that you find his backpack and belongings.

  • I live one block East. I'm so sorry! I'll keep a look out!

  • When my husband had his near-fatal bike accident, the CFD took his bike and kept it safe at their station. I went there & picked it up a week or so later. Maybe the station on Halsted & Diversey attended to your boyfriend?

Street people sleeping and hanging out, etc, in doorways 2300-2400 N. Clark

There have been street people sitting and sleeping in doorways in front of residential and commercial buildings morning, noon and night, making those leaving and approaching these buildings feel unsafe. This is concerning occupied residential entryways, occupied commercial storefronts, as well as vacant ones Verbal remarks and comments to residents add to this area not being a very pleasant area to live. There is also evidence of human feces surrounding these buildings. Anyone have ideas on appropriate action to address this matter?

  • Bob

    Another thing the 19th Police District has done is scout the parks after 11PM for homeless, street people, vagrants, etc. These organized forays into the park were (are?) organized by Alderman James Cappleman’s office. The police, with the Dept. of Family and Support Services, would enter the park, round up vagrants, check them for outstanding warrants, and offer housing and other assistance. For every twenty found, one would accept help. The others cursed out the police and Family Services.

  • Art

    Attend a community policing meeting (CAPS) meeting and voice your concerns to the police who are assigned to your beat. You should be able to find CAPS information on-line or call you Alderman's office about scheduled meetings. The police can give you advice and suggestions about how to deal with the situation. In my experience, they are going to tell you to call the police.

Stop Leaving your Dog Tied Up Outside of Establishments!

Fellow Residents: I want to remind you that bad, bad guys steal nice dogs from neighborhoods like ours. I see dogs tied up outside of Starbucks, Walgreens and Trader Joes everyday. I always wait with them and try and educate the owner. Most owners are clueless (and polite when I tell them details) about dog fighting and dog theft. Some are jerks about it.

Fellow Residents: I want to remind you that bad, bad guys steal nice dogs from neighborhoods like ours. I see dogs tied up outside of Starbucks, Walgreens and Trader Joes everyday. I always wait with them and try and educate the owner. Most owners are clueless (and polite when I tell them details) about dog fighting and dog theft. Some are jerks about it. Awhile back a dog was stolen outside the 7-11 at Halsted/Armitage. The dog fighters like sweet dogs like ours and use them as bait dogs. If you see a dog tied up outside, wait with it to protect it. If you feel like it, try and educate the owners. If you are in the habit of leaving your dog outside of an establishment, please be aware dog theft DOES happen and your dog will likely die in a pretty horrific way.

  • i would hope by now people would know this....but i also would think people would know about leashing their pets, and cleaning up after them. thanks for bring it up again.

  • Michelle S. Old Town Triangle newbie

    And when someone does come to get that tied up dog, I always wonder in the back of my mind if it really is the owner walking away with them... or a thief.

Newbie

Hello all. Just moved near North/ Larabee. Is there any place a gal can take a jog without being on the sidewalk, like a track? Also, in scanning various posts,I see a theme of complaints being launched- is it REALLY that bad? Looks good to me.

  • RachMac
    There is a running track around Oz Park. It may not be of Olympic quality, but it aint a sidewalk.

  • You are 1 mile to the lake front and there are paths before the lake heading north or better yet run along the lakefront and enjoy the amazing views!

Construction at Halsted/Armitage

Anyone know what they are building on Halsted just South of Armitage? It is the Halsted side of that massive property where the huge house was built a few years ago. It seems like the land sat vacant for a long time, but now they are doing some heavy work. Not sure if it is Residential, Condos, Retail, etc. Couldn't find any signs that indicated either.

  • Curious, too. Anyone?

  • It will be a two story building with an underground parking lot. The parking lot entry will be on the south side of the building next to the Floating World Art Gallery. The second floor and 1/3 of the first floor will be a daycare center with a green/environmental theme. The rest of the first floor will be retail. They just started marketing the retail space a few weeks ago, so no leases have been signed since I last talked with the developer.
