Loking for a good acupuncturist

I'm looking for a good acupuncturist to help relieve some pain I'm experiencing.

Does anyone know someone good with an office in Galewood, Oak Park or River Forest?

Good new on North Avenue

The Village of Oak Park finally owns the long-abandoned eyesore at 6641 W. North. If they can't sell it, they'll probably tear it down.

PNC Bank will soon be moving into the long-vacant building at 6621 W. North Ave. in Oak Park. I saw a lot of work on the building last week.

Reply to Looking for Accupunturist

I recommend Tricia Miller at Serenity Acupuncture in Oak Park. The office is right across from the Jewel on Madison St. She is excellent. Here is their website.

    Thank heavens! On my way home from work, every time I run over one of them suckers, I pee a little. Glad to know I don't need new underwear!

Kids can get their faces painted by Wonder Works Children's Museum staff, 9 - 11:30 AM, or play mini-basketball and soccer at the Galewood-North Avenue Farmers Market this Sunday, August 17th.

While the kids play, adults can work out with personal trainer John Hayley at 9 AM ($20; bring an exercise mat or just come to watch for free), stock up on locally-grown fruits and vegetables, French bakery items and artisanal cheese from Wisconsin, or just relax with a cup of organic coffee. The whole family can enjoy homemade Mexican specialties, gourmet cupcakes and foot-long hotdogs. Come to shop. Stay for lunch.

The market is open 9 AM - 2 PM in the parking lot just east of US Bank at 6700 W. North Avenue in Chicago (just north of Oak Park).

Sposato jumping ship

I hope the 38th ward gets what was given to the 36th ward. Not much.
There has been no improvement in the 36th over the past years. We hoped Nick would have stuck to his guns to help clean up the ward. Oh well guess not. It is easier to just go to a ward that has more union residents. Less responsibilities I guess. Good way to get a nice pension.

  • Minerva what unsupervised youth dealing with drugs in our neighborhood are you talking about? I have gone to the meetings and all of the youth that were there were children of members or reside in the dunning community.

  • Lisa36, did your neighbor friend even go and talk to him or was she too upset that she did not get things her way? If it is a major issue for the city, why not call 311?

Thinking of moving to the area

Hi; We are a 30-something family looking at the Galewood community for our next home. Our realtor suggested adding it to our search and prior to that I hadn't heard of it. I'd love to hear from current residents - what do you like/dislike about the area?
Is this a good area to raise a family? Are there family friendly places to walk / activities, etc?

Also from a safety factor - is what I hear correct that its a safe neighborhood but stay west of Naraganset? I would love any feedback. Thanks!

  • Among the neighborhood amenities, don't forget the weekly farmers market every Sunday, 9 AM - 2 PM, in the parking lot just east of the bank at 6700 W. North Ave. in Chicago. French pastries and bread, big selection of artisanal cheeses from Wisconsin, locally-grown fruits and veggies, honey, and jam. Plus, it's a great place to meet neighbors.

    Neal didn't mention this, but Galewood.net is a great resource for getting to know the neighborhood. In particular, they have several maps to acquaint you with the area. My wife and I moved here two years ago, and we love the neighborhood! Friendly people, great public transit options, lots of parks to walk to, and several restaurants. Just to clarify, the attendance area for Sayre is west of Nashville Ave (including the west side of that street). We are considering sending out children to Sayre. It's probably not as good as some of the Norwood Park schools, but we're willing to work to make it better.
