Road work in Mayfair

4600-4800 N. Kenneth the city is tearing up the streets, with what looks like new plumbing pipes laying all along the construction area. Anybody know what the repair work is for and if it will stretch south of Wilson?

  • Is it the city or the gas company??

  • Cat Stevens Defender of the Free World

    New water mains. I would guess that it's only N of Wison. They replaced the ones on the 4500 block 4 yrs ago

    Maybe they felt they needed divine intervention.

  • Portage Park Ryan Portage Park is where I call home.

    The couple shot at Addison and Laramie drove all the way to West Suburban hospital. Maybe they're afraid of seeing someone the knew?

Neighborhood Elevation

In his discussion about what inspired Neighborhood Elevation, Artist Anthony Lewellen talks about walking the streets of North Mayfair and finding ideas for design from the buildings, trees and parks of our neighborhood. Here's a map of North Mayfair, circa 1922. The streets are all there, but not all of the homes have been built. Is your home on the map?

    Pls. don't let an unfortunate incident stop you from attending the Jefferson Park Sunday Market. It's wonderful just to have it in our neighborhood. If you feel you have to be extra careful, mention it to that vendor and, I am sure, he/she will be glad to make things right. Please come again.

  • Merril Jefferson Park Sunday Market manager

    And actually the vendor did discover a problem with the scale, fixed it & had a test weight handy today in an effort to cooporate and put people at ease.

People's Gas shut off my gas

So I had a PG guy come out to do an inspection - he identifies a leak, another guy comes out and shuts off the gas. Says have a contractor open up your wall and a plumber fix the leak and call us when it's all done. WTF? Who do I call? I have no way to cook or dry our laundry :( And People's Gas won't give us any names of companies that could help.

Thuis Playlot - Lavergne/Lawrence Will you come?

Thuis Playlot @ 4759 N. Lavergne Ave. is being renovated. I'd love to take my kids there since it's so close to our house, but I am deathly afraid of crossing Lawrence at the Lavergne/Lawrence intersection. I honeslty think that the inability to safely cross the street is one of the major reasons this playlot is very underutilized. Anyone have any thoughts on what can be done?
