Water issue on 2300 block of Cortez

Anyone know what's going on? My taps were only working intermittently last night, and now the water that comes out seems dirty.

  • You probably have this figured out already, but the problem could have been cold-related and in your building rather than the block. We suddenly lost water last Sunday night. Called 311, but they had no other reports in the area. Investigated in the building, and found out frozen pipes had broken in the crawlspace and first floor apartment. (Stupid tenant had turned the heat completely off while gone for an extended period of time.)

A New Service to Come to Help Prevent Stolen Packages

I was just watching Shark Tank and saw an episode that featured a new service called Doorman, which helps to ensure the safety of your package. Apparently, the service will be coming to Chicago this year (no specific launch date). I live right off of a major street and hate sitting around ALL day (or even for a four hour window) for a package. Plus, delivering to work isn't an option for me. I'm just so excited and thought maybe I should share this information with my neighbors! :)

If you're interested in learning more, here's a link: http://abcnews.go.com/Lifestyle/doorman-app-eliminates-holiday-package-theft/story?id=27142934

  • You can also have your packages delivered to a UPS store. I believe the service is about $3 a package. Totally worth it when you don't live in a building designed for safe package delivery. You will need to go/call the UPS store ahead of time so they have your info. Good luck!

  • Carolyn Le Ukrainian Village Livin'

    @Cynthia - I knew of that service, but I unfortunately am not very close to a UPS store. It's especially hard for me to get back from the UPS store with large packages. However, thanks for sharing because I'm sure some people didn't know this fact!
    @CRSmall - I need to look into this service! Thanks for sharing! :)

West Town Running Group

Hey all!
I'm in the ukranian village-- and am really looking to join/start a local running club, with weeknight runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I would love to meet new folks and have runner friends to brave the winter roads with me.

Thoughts?

  • Rory G. RMG

    I run with a group that meets up on Tuesday and Thursdays at the north end of wicker park (across from Big Star). We usually run 3 miles in a few different paces.

    Tue we meet at 6:30
    Thurs we meet at 7:15

  • Eve T. Recently returned to Chicago

Donation stations

Anyone know of places in the wicker park area where I can drop of clothes to donate?

  • Northwestern Settlement house on Augusta and Noble is an excellent place to donate to, every Friday they have a giveaway of clothes, books, household things, all donated. One time I tentatively asked if they accepted used (clean) kid's pyjamas, they emphatically said yes, they need everything. Truly not for profit.

  • Mr Doug Faller Ukrainian Village Resident

    We donate to The ARK on Milwaukee.
    Information from their web site:
    Donate gently used furniture, household items, appliances or clothing to The ARK’s Thrift Shop at 1302 N. Milwaukee Ave., in Chicago. Hours are Mon. thru Thurs., 10-6; Fri., 10-5 (summer) and 10-4 (winter); Sun., 10-5. For furniture and appliance pick-up, call 773.862.5011.
