New Grocery Gal Post: Northwest Side Chicago Landmark: Hagen’s Fish Market

This is a long overdue installment on Hagen's Fish Market on Montrose. I'm pretty sure Portage Park and Jefferson Park fight over who's realm it falls under (I think Portage Park wins because it's on the south side of Montrose), so I kept it simple and said its location was on the Northwest Side. Enjoy!

lots on Lawrence av east of Milwaukee, pedestrian designation

Yes, we in Jeff Park and of JPNA do not want more density which brings more crime and there is no proof of it bringing businesses since where there is density and no wealth there are vacant stores like on Milwaukee south of Montrose. A developer is putting single family homes on Milwaukee across from Schurz high school. If they can do it there, they can do it here.

  • Ryan Richter Transportation Planner in Jefferson Park

    Thanks, Carlene. I would like to come to more JPNA meetings. I think that not all of my questions are answered on the website - might be best to talk with people.

    Big Oaks, good on you for calling the bully out. Solid like as oak, your name fits your personality.

    Dennis, I read this last night and refrained from commenting because my daughter was cyber-bullied. Her abuser posted malicious lies to social media. Victims tend to become passive, withdrawn, depressed and teenagers have been known to commit suicide. Unlike Big Oaks, most onlookers hide or like you, join the abuse. My daughter never backed down, total strangers supported her and helped stop that bully. I would appreciate it if you would watch this video. This young lady killed herself and even though we’re adults, you’re behaving like a child.

    Carlene, I apologize. I read a false article last week in regard to squatters and trolls commented. Miss Colleen my office is near you and I get to come home to normalcy. You’re too close to the situation to see it objectively. You can’t change the minds of someone who benefits/profits and you don’t want to argue with people no one respects.

President Obama will speak Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 25, at the Copernicus Center, 5216 W. Lawrence Ave. A limited number of tickets for the public will be distributed at 10 am in the lobby of the Copernicus Center on Sunday, Nov. 23.
The White House released the following: On Tuesday, November 25, the President will travel to the Copernicus Community Center in Chicago, Illinois to meet with community leaders and discuss the executive actions he is taking to fix our broken immigration system.
As the President said on Thursday, his Immigration Accountability Executive actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules. They will also continue our commitment as Americans to an ideal-- that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.
The President looks forward to speaking to a diverse group of leaders on Tuesday, and to continuing to discuss his actions with communities and Americans across the country. Watch for updates at www.nadignewspapers.com

Users on everyblock

neighbors, without sparking to much debate I am curious your views on something. Lots of accusations by many about others having multiple names, then there are the opinions that are often strong and heated by folks who clearly want to remain hidden. These opinions as you know can be everything from neighborhood issues to business reviews. What's your thoughts on that issue? Should EB revamp and require neighbors to display who they are? Just general thoughts and I'm sincerely curious what you all think on the subject

  • Jan

    If one has nothing to hide, then they should honestly state whom they are.

  • joanie 20+ year Resident of Jefferson Park

    Jan, cyber-stalkers can be very problematic for women. A few people on EB know me, two of them are aldermen. It's not a matter of hiding, but one of safety. There is too much information listed about people that is readily available online. All you need is a first and last name.

    At least on FB, I can limit friends and set privacy levels.

We've Only Got Three or Four Able Bodied Shovelers Left

And it's time we selected a service to snow blow or plough our little condo. Does anyone have good luck and good prices with any particular service? Maybe we can afford it. I'm just about to write the annual Association memo to residents that say, 'Please shovel when it's your turn or pay $20,' but no one does, and the three or four who still can end up shoveling all winter, and one of them gripes so much about it that it's pitiful (not me). Last winter was so bad we finally lost control of the long stretch of pure ice on Higgins, I'm sure to the curses of those who must walk there.

  • Vic Hitler

    When I get older I'll want to walk out of my place, saunter to the liquor store for my bottle of Krupnik and 3 packs of Pall Malls. Need ice free walkways for that.

If you have a pumpkin that hasn't been chemically treated and you'd like to get rid of it, please let me know! I'd be happy to take a few off your hands! I roast them, puree them, and add fresh cinnamon (antibacterial and antifungal) and fresh garlic (ant parasitic and antifungal). I keep them in little baggies over the winter and serve them up nice and warm for the girls on those super chilly days. They gobble them right up!

If anyone is interested in donating your old pumpkin after Halloween, just let me know!

    Queen of Insanity - I think this is right on. In my own experience my wife and I lived in Lincoln Park and Lincoln Square before purchasing in Jefferson Park. We always had one car, but bought a larger second one when child #2 came around. Yet, we managed to find a place just 5-6 blocks from the Jeff Park terminal. Being carless is not as appealing right now, sure, but it will when I'm older, and I like the fact that amenities are around so as my kids get older they will be less reliant on me to drive them places. I work downtown so not driving has its perks, too. One of the reasons I'm pro-development and additional density (not anywhere, just near the train station) is because I have a rational, experienced, professional based belief that viable businesses and residential neighborhoods around transit create strong communities.

  • Zoes mom working at home

    @Queenofinsanity It's probably not going to be single occupancy at 2k a month it will be at least 2 + people per unit. Easily affordable, splitting the utilities. the plus would be the location to the train, the negative will be the noise.

Lincoln

I've been an amateur Lincoln scholar since grammar school. Spent a lot of time in Springfield during my early years--used the Illinois Supreme Court Library to research and write my thesis. I've always been intrigued with the town and its history, in particular its most famous resident. Been reading "Recollections of Abraham Lincoln" by Ward Hill Lamon--makes me want to visit Springfield again...in the spring. Have any of you read this book? I love it and find it an intimate portrayal of Mr. Lincoln whom I have admired since boyhood.

    Janet, as Phil said Lincoln was born in Kentucky and came to Illinois via Indiana. McCleansboro is not on my radar as anywhere he lived, but he did ride circuit throughout the state and could very well have stayed there. He knew almost nothing about his mother's family, the Hankeses, who moved from Virginia to Kentucky in the late 1700's. They named all their kids the same, all the boys were named James or John, and the girls Polly, Lucy, or Nancy. There were at least 8 Nancy Hankes born during the 1780's. Abraham Lincoln believed that his mother was illegitimate. She died while in Indiana, and his father, Thomas married Sarah Bush before moving to Illinois. Rather difficult geneology to track, but I would certainly encourage you to take a shot at it. Good Luck.

    Hi Lunker and A&K -
    I am a registered architect that just opened my own company four months ago. Previously I was working at a high end residential firm (Sullivan Goulette Wilson) for the past 14 years. Fortunately I have been busy with home renovation and addition projects (all thru referrals) since opening my company, and I would love to take a look at your project. I have no marketing website yet but I can provide referrals. I live and work in the neighborhood and am trying to build up a client base. I can be reached at 773-732-7515.
    And in addition to the self certified architect option Aaron mentioned (which is a good one), if the project is an owner occupied single family residence the city has other programs which allows you to obtain the permit via one of the neighborhood permit centers (which will also save time & money) instead of submitting downtown. Thank you.

    Lunker and A&K:

    I have an architectural and interior design company which I've owned for the past 10 years. A great percentage of our work is for single-family and two-flat residential additions and remodeling. I find it best to meet in person with my prospective clients to review their desired scope of work; see the space that is being remodeled; discuss the renovation process with them; as well as, discuss my company. If you prefer to have a conversation prior to a meeting, please contact me at 773-769-1177. My architectural design concept is not to force a particular style on the client; but, a working relationship with my clients to achieve their style appropriate to their home; as well as, to design additions and remodels from the original design perspective, so your addition/remodel looks like it was a part of the original construction. In addition, I'm a member of the Chicago Bungalow Association, extremely familiar with the details of this type of home; and, a self-certified architect with the City of Chicago. To add to the conversation on the neighborhood (satellite) permit center: Yes, these centers are for owner-occupied homes; they are for projects that don't change the FAR (floor area ratio) on the home; such as dormers, deck additions, porch remodeling etc. In other words, if you are adding square footage to your home, such as an addition; a zoning review would need to take place for approval; which are no longer performed at the satellite offices. If you are a self-certified architect your submittal swiftly goes through the zoning & permit process; if not, it would need to go through the downtown center. I talked to my contact at the City, and zoning reviews are now at least 21 days out before your permit review could begin. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have; or to set-up a meeting, Sincerely, Janet Tebbenkamp, Licensed Architect and Licensed Interior Designer.

JPNA website

So I was considering going to a meeting of the JPNA, and I figured their website would be a good starting place for information. I get to the website, and see that the website is kinda messed up; I clicked on the "membership" link from the homepage, which took me to a membership page. Great! From the membership page, I clicked on 'community' and was taken to http://www.theworkshopgalena.org. The other links took me to an escrow company, a developer in Houston, an oilfield drilling service, outright weird stuff. Anyone else having this issue? It's pretty comical.

I've been anxiously awaiting the Grand Opening of the new Habitat Re-Store since I heard about it several months ago. This weekend it FINALLY opened its doors, and I was all too anxious to get in and see what I could find.

First and foremost, if you've been visiting the Re-Store near/in Chinatown, you're in for a treat with this one. It's FAR more organized, and well lit. In fact, they even had the place heated up nice and toasty when we arrived.

The outdoor/ garden section leaves a bit to be desired, but they did have some Audubon bird feeders that are normally $45-$60 for $10. I picked one of those up. I also scored a cute little wrought iron plant stand for $5.

They have some incredibly decent furniture for affordable prices. I saw couches for $20 and some beautiful sitting chairs for about the same.

We are looking to remodel our kitchen, so we had a look at the cabinets and countertops. They were VERY fairly priced, as were their windows and doors.

We just happened upon a PERFECT fireplace grate, which we were in need of for only $4! This is a heavy duty cast iron grate, not some rinky dinky little thing. It was most definitely a steal!

We'll be going back again and again, I'm sure. The selection was fantastic, and included both new AND used items.

For those of you who aren't aware, the items are donated to the Re-Store by individuals and companies that are remodeling or demolishing homes or buildings, or if there is an overstock. I'm sure there are a variety of other circumstances as well. The proceeds made at the restores go toward helping build homes and other needs for community members. It's a great deal as well as a great cause!

My husband got the breakfast burger & I got the chicken chorizo, poblano scramble. The Owner makes his own breakfast patties & chicken chorizo (& sells them too). We'll definitely go back to try the other options/specials. The inside's still the same-small, cramped but it's worth it for the food.
And from the other side of the food spectrum, Pho #1 has revamped their menu. It's more user friendly for the non-Vietnamese. They had a new waiter, a young guy-didn't get his name-who explained alot of the food & made recommendations of some of his favorites. Oh & instead of plain water they now serve you Jasmine water-soooo good. Winter is quickly approaching so go get your Pho on!

Storm doors/installation recommendations

We are looking to replace our storm/screen doors, and are not at all handy with home improvement projects.

We have looked at doors at home improvement stores and thought about paying one of their contractors to install it, but now we are wondering if we should hire someone like Feldco to come over and measure our door frames, help us pick out a style, and come back to install.

Does anyone have any recommendations on this project? Either a quality installer or if you feel that going the home improvement store route is more economical/better?

Thanks for any ideas.

    Spam, this is bothering me now because I wasn’t old enough to vote for her but I worked in the same building. A part-time after school job doing legal work. She had to keep her office and Washington must have been Mayor at the time? I bumped into her after she already blazed that trail. It’s no wonder I was awestruck.

    All I can say is she was stunning. I would watch her from my little corner of the elevator and she’d exit quickly while my ride went almost to the top. I studied her too. Her mannerisms were elegant, her posture perfect, every hair in place, just beautiful. I was in the presence of royalty or pretty close to it, I thought. I’d hold my breath and when she smiled at me, time stood still. She’d exit the elevator and leave behind this million dollar fragrance that I would drink in because I would finally breathe. She was lovely and may have had a tough exterior but very feminine.

    I’ll call dad. He worked in the same building a few floors below me.
