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.

  • Add Starbucks (albeit awhile ago) and Spicy Monkey to the list of businesses that have closed on Clybourn. As previously mentioned, I'd imagine the rents as well as the rules and red tape which the city typically forces leasers to deal with are very prohibitive.

  • Sucks that no new news has popped up about ace bar. I DID notice a ladder and some things going on in that former starbucks on webster though! Also add that websters wine bar moved out and who knows what's going on with that taq haus joint.... On a positive...

    Sucks that no new news has popped up about ace bar. I DID notice a ladder and some things going on in that former starbucks on webster though! Also add that websters wine bar moved out and who knows what's going on with that taq haus joint.... On a positive note it looks like they are breaking ground on those aforementioned units next to taco burrito house on fullerton ( 24 units) and theres been tons of infill on montana row. Hopefully this density will help businesses thrive in the vicinity.

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.

Guy who squats in front of 7-Eleven at Clark/Belden

If you pass by the 7-Eleven on a regular basis, you've probably seen the guy in the red shirt who sits in front of the store on two stacked milk crates. He seems to have taken up residence there in the past few months-- panhandling, sleeping, or chatting with a few friends who stand around, blocking the sidewalk.

On several occasions when he wasn't there, I've seen the crates and flattened cardboard boxes sitting on the ground. Four times I...

If you pass by the 7-Eleven on a regular basis, you've probably seen the guy in the red shirt who sits in front of the store on two stacked milk crates. He seems to have taken up residence there in the past few months-- panhandling, sleeping, or chatting with a few friends who stand around, blocking the sidewalk.

On several occasions when he wasn't there, I've seen the crates and flattened cardboard boxes sitting on the ground. Four times I disposed of them. Four times he came back with new ones.

A few times in his absence, I've seen the crates stuffed between the mailboxes on the southwest corner of Clark & Belden. Once I saw him defecating in the alley off Belden.

First: Does this bother anyone else?

Second: Aside from the defecating and the littering (leaving the crates between the mailboxes)-- things which are hard to catch in the act-- is there anything illegal about his squatting there?

  • lauren east lakeview

    Thanks Chad. I had no clue. I do hope something happens now.

    And whoever said no one was trying to get him in trouble - that's the point of the post. "What can I do? Sitting there isn't illegal by itself so I'm stuck."
    No one was attempting to get him help - but to try to catch him doing something illegal in order to get the man in trouble.

    Now knowing all of what Chad said, I do hope he DOES find himself in a bit of trouble.

  • Thank you for that information, Chad. Just want to make sure we're all talking about the same person: A very heavyset, black man who tends to wear a red shirt and sits on a flattened cardboard box atop two milk crates? That's Jackie?

    Thank you for that information, Chad. Just want to make sure we're all talking about the same person: A very heavyset, black man who tends to wear a red shirt and sits on a flattened cardboard box atop two milk crates? That's Jackie?

    I ask, simply because— and I mean no judgement by this; I'm just saying— given his weight, I don't see how he can easily move quickly enough to commit burglaries.

    Neighbors, how can we both help Jackie get his needs for food and shelter met AND keep our corner litter-free and safe?
