anyone have free moving boxes?

Does anyone in the Lincoln Park or near areas have extra boxes laying around that I could have for free? I can pick them up!

  • Call Trader Joes. They get big boxes in the morning and late evening.

  • Liquor stores also have plenty to give away, though they're on the smaller side. Scouring the alleys are the best way to find large moving boxes and people pack them up quite well.

No hater water for 5 days now for entire apartment building

Our entire building (around 100 units) has had no hot water since Thursday due to 'complications in installing an elevator piston'. I'm wondering what my rights are here. They sent a letter saying we would be given a 'per diem' for every day the water is out, but there was no mention of how much the per diem was. I have been unable to take a shower or do laundry during this time. Can I deduct the full pro-rated rent from this months rent (my rent breaks down to $33/day) for the days we've been without hot water?

  • Ben Neighbor

    Please contact me directly tomorrow to discuss. The per diem is full credit per day.

  • Freefall Lincoln Park Resident

    Thanks, I was about to post an update that there's a full rent credit being given. Full rent credit is fine by me

  • Francis W Parker School reviewed

    I commenced my Parker experience in 6th Grade and I was fortunate to be part of a diverse and connective community. The school offers a variety of clubs and electives and provides state of the art facilities. I am just about to commence my 7th grade year and can't explain the bond I developed with the Parker community in a year. The abstract learning that is taught at school takes the students into different approaches. I love to support Parker by doing athletics. I loved to play soccer and basketball, athletics was a great way to simultaneously bond with your classmates and support your school. The school offers theater and other essential arts. There are many school plays that are performed throughout the year. Parker teaches many music classes. You are primarily given a choice of band or choir. In band, you rent an instrument and primarily perform twice throughout the year. I have family legacy at Parker (3rd generation) and the contagious passion that has ran through the school since my first relative commences his Parker experience is nothing short of remarkable. The energy and enthusiasm displayed every day is great. Parker is a second home, even for the alumni.

Man pees in Jonquil Park

My husband was at Jonquil Park today around 3pm with our 10 month old son. A black male in his mid 40's entered the gated area and in front of my husband and son peed. He was wearing black pants, a black jacket, a bright orange hat and carrying two backpacks one of them camouflage. My husband just scooped up our son and got him out of there. The guy was gone then and he did not call the police. I told him he should have. Makes me sick. My son loves to crawl around the park :(

  • Bill Gordon Professional librarian, proud cat owner, iPad user

    Take a video of the guy using your phone or tablet. Email the vid to your local police station and demand action. If enough people did that sort of thing it just might help.

  • I can appreciate your suggestion, Bill Gorden.

    I would, however, propose that this is a suggestion a little less frightening to a man than a woman.

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.
