People's Gas

There is a bush that has never been replaced from when People's Gas installed my new meter outside. I have called them and even Alderman Harris. It has been months and that bush was very expensive. Anybody have any advice on what I should do? Thanks

  • My Mom is 86 years old. Work was done completely removing both walkways from sidewalk to the curb in front of her home. The walkways have been replaced with gravel. It is hazardous for her now. Snow removal will be impossible. This now becomes an ADA issue. What should she do?

    Needless to say, there has been no restoration of her landscape as well.

    That's terrible. Have you tried contacting the alderman?

Anyone know about living at 7321 South Shore or 6700 South Shore?

Hi All,
I've been investigating moving back to South Shore (I'm in California now, but grew up in HP/SS and lived at 73rd & Jeff from '85 to '98). Been looking at real estate, paying close attention to all the reports you've given on all the unfortunate changes in the community in the last few years, but still interested because frankly, I LOVED living there and I have faith in it making a rebound (in large part because of the...

Hi All,
I've been investigating moving back to South Shore (I'm in California now, but grew up in HP/SS and lived at 73rd & Jeff from '85 to '98). Been looking at real estate, paying close attention to all the reports you've given on all the unfortunate changes in the community in the last few years, but still interested because frankly, I LOVED living there and I have faith in it making a rebound (in large part because of the Everyblock member community). I've been looking at two high rises, 7321 SS Drive and 6700 SS Drive. Re 7321, it's an older building, looks beautiful and has some reasonable prices for condos, but I wonder mainly about heating an older place like that, if it's sky high or not. 6700 is newer, presumably with more efficient heating, but I also wonder about the level of noise from other apartments in both of them. Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) living in those two buildings? Even know some one who lives there I might be able to communicate with? Thanks!

  • Hugh Williams 45yr HP & SS res, now in Cali, coming home.

    Thanks Clarice, I'll take a look. Thanks Sheila; but I still don't know what building you and Normjohn call the "Quadrangle". Is that the one at 6700 South Shore?

  • Hugh_
    I'm hoping to give you a tour of 7321.
