Reserved Parking Spot on Belden Needed

We have a new baby and are really not looking forward to street parking all winter long. We live near 428 W Belden and are looking for a parking spot or garage that is available and close to the apartment. If you know of anything, please let me know. Thank you!

  • Edward Sayers Sr. Retired and enjoying life

    Standard Parking operates a parking garage at the 345 Fullerton Condo Association. This is located on Commonwealth @ Fullerton. Might be a little too far for you but thought I would let you know.

  • Jerome H Meyer rents spots in an alley just off there. Worth checking out.

Lincoln Park's little blue house has vanished

Workers tear down the small worker's cottage at 625 W. Armitage Ave. in Lincoln Park.

Built in 1886, it sat on the corner of Armitage Avenue and Howe Street in Lincoln Park like a Lilliputian in the land of giants, its survival an ongoing mystery in a part of the city that shows little patience for the small or the old.

Wine Bar

I am looking for a good wine bar in Lincoln Park or Lakeview to host a get together of 25 or so people during a weeknight, any ideas?

  • Jason1977 Pretty new to Pilsen

    Trellis is a nice option.

  • DOC wine bar on Clark is nice and has a back room for groups that can be reserved. Also, it is not usually too busy on M to Wed weeknights.

    I can also recommend 404 Wine bar at 2852 North Southport but you would want to call ahead to see if they have space for a group of 25.

  • Webster's Wine Bar would have been a good choice, but they've moved to Logan Square, if that's an acceptable alternative. Coppervine is a restaurant at 1962 N. Halsted, however they focus on pairing of food with specific wines/drinks. Might be a fun spin.

Looking for a room for three months

Hi I`m Giulia,
I`m here in Chicago for a few months for an internship and I`m looking for a room.
Actually I`m in a far West area but I don`t feel very comfortable. Is there anyone that can help me?

Thank you

  • Yes, if you look under temp leases/ subleases, people have places available for 2-3 month periods. Some specifically for people who are completing an internship.

  • What are the exact dates? Where is your internship? We have a room that we rented to an intern at Alinea a while back.

Temps Rising in Traffic Hell?

As in many parts of Chicago, it seems more money, time, and attention has been invested into red-light cameras than has gone into synchronizing our traffic lights. Lincoln Park is no exception.

Still hanging on! Lincoln Park's curious cottage on Armitage yet to be developed

We last wrote about the house at 625 W Armitage last November.  Public notices were posted regarding a variance request by an active local developer. Almost one year later the house still remains.

The area of Armitage and Howe is made up of mostly high-end homes, newer condo buildings and vintage condo conversion buildings.  2041 N Howe (just a half block from 625 W Armitage) sold this summer for $3,832,500.00

  • I am fairly certain that both Crew and Andersonville Brewery are showing the games. One is in Uptown near Lawrence and the brewery is next to Hamburger Mary's.

  • Matilda at 3101 N Sheffield is showing packers games this year. Talked to the owner and he's got a bunch of specials coming in from Hinterland, Oso, Capital and other wisconsin craft brews throughout the season. Supposedly there's going to be an "official" packer beer released this year and served only a Lambeau and he managed to get a keg.

    I know 2 guys that do bathroom remodel work. They aren't the cheapest but they are reliable (show up early and every day scheduled) and do the job right (they won't let you put in something that they know is a junk product, so it will last you and not need to be redone 4 years later). Best of all they are quick, efficient, and don't make a huge mess ( they will seal off the area and keep all the dust there not all over your place). If you are interested let me know and I will get the number for you.

  • Try Sir Grout. They do a great job and are located in Lincoln Park

  • Lincoln Park High School reviewed

    Graduated from the I.b program a few years ago, absolutely horrible. Nothing but horrid memories from this institution. They counseling services at this school are close to nonexistent. Despite working extremely hard - I didn't get into my first choice university - nobody cared - all the focus and work was placed toward 2-3 I.b students. I do not recommend this place - if I had the $, I would go to Latin or Francis Parker - way less work and yet I would end up at the university of my choice. Disgusted and ashamed that I went here.
