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.

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.

Chess provides a fantastic way to develop critical thinking and plus through strategic play. There is a current movement to bring chess to every CPS school and it would be great to bring on board all of our neighborhood kids soon.

Where is Alderman Nicholas Sposato?

Why isn't Alderman Nicholas Sposato on everyblock for Ward 36? I know Tom for the 38th is (I Used to be in the 38th and we got remapped)

  • The biggest issue was the cut and hack of the 36th, then he jumps to the 38th (which is now MUCH larger). It is clear that favors are being done and once again, we are punished. I just hope the voters in the 38th are smart enough to see what it is and not reward this deceptive behavior.

  • Mike, I am in the 36th and voted for Alderman Sposato. I think he is a fine Alderman and would be thrilled if he is still my Alderman when my address is changed to the 38th. I will vote for him again if he runs.

Oak Park's North Ave. Fresh Market closes

We're very sorry to see this business close, especially so soon after the Mobile/North Walgreens closing. But it turns out that the closing is due to the bankruptcy of the owner, rather than a problem with this particular store. That's somewhat comforting. Here's a link to the story:
http://elmwoodpark.suntimes.com/2014/07/11/north-avenue-fresh-market-closes/

  • How were you able to find that out, Johnny? I'm wondering if we should inform the Village of Oak Park about this. Do you think they can do anything?

  • My girlfriend worked for the company I don't know what the village can do but they'll have to pay unemployment their money because she took them her W2's as proof she worked there

Hi! My name is Kane and I am a 4-5 year-old Labrador Retriever mix. Check out my photos! I love to fetch and be in nature and I'm good off-leash if we go to the forest or a nice open space but not in the city. I'm good on the leash too and I've lived in the city so I'm fine with that. I really like people and I'm great with children. Sometimes I'm a little timid when a person I don't know comes into the house for the first time but I warm up pretty quickly to them once I see you're okay with them :) I live with two other dogs right now and we get along well. We never fight and oddly enough the 15 lb Bachand is my boss but I'm okay with it.

If you'd like to meet me I'd love to meet you! Shoot me a line and we can hang out and get to know each other.

Sincerely,
Kane
