Renter Beware!

Thankfully I am moving out of my apartment at 2111 W. Warren Blvd. (Ground Floor); I have made three Building Inspector complaints and attached pictures of the conditions in the home. It has MOLD and drainage issues, pipes leaking in walls, etc... this rental was purchased in foreclosure and the landlords, NL Holdings, LLC (please beware of John Lajka and Tate Nudo and there NL Holding companies!!) refused to maintain this home built on 1892. I forwarded email and pictures to Walter Burnett, and I hope the alderman does something about this!

Her landlord asked her to leave the space she leased for over 10 years.

Hi all. Not sure if you were aware but Jan from Jan's Antiques moved her business to Evanston from the Fulton District a few months back. Her landlord asked her to leave the space she leased for over 10 years. Not many people know this but she has suffered through huge inventory loses, a stressful move, major health problems and a car accident that totaled her car. Thankfully she and the other driver were not injured. She is without a car and has a loner until the end of the month but does not have a plan after she returns the car. I know this is a stretch and wanted to reach out to WL community to see if anyone has or knows someone who might be willing to donate a car. I would take care of picking it up and handling all the ownership paperwork. Even if you don't have a car ask your friends and family. It would be awesome if we could find a way to help her out!

I would like to keep this request from Jan if I can so don't mention anything to her if you know her or happen to bump into her.

Appreciate your time and consideration

  • Christian: Thank you for taking the time to help Jan. You should consider calling someone in development at Old St. Pat's Church. There may be parishioners willing to help.

    I will spread the word. Thank you

  • That would be great. if anything does come to light please email me. cjsiegel514@gmail.com. Thank you for trying to help!

  • Just heard back from Old St. Pat's. They are going to check around to see if they have some leads. No promises, but they have a good network.

Tri Taylor needs more murals

I'm the local artist who was born, raised, and continuing to live in the Tri Taylor neighborhood. The area is rich in history and diversity. This mural I've posted is a labor of love and something I did without any raising of funds. It's my vision to create more in the this small pocket of Chicago. Anyone who may be of help with finding sponsors or resources, feel free to comment. I would also like the community involved in the process, as well.

  • Bill Waychunas Tri-Taylor Teacher

    I think this is an awesome idea! This could really help give Tri-Taylor more of an identity.

  • Michael Ramstedt Managing Broker, Krain Real Estate

    Hey Victor. How's it hanging?

    Whats the location of this mural?

Title Boxing Club recently opened open on 313 South Peoria St. between Jackson and Van Buren. You have to go and check out the swank space. The gym is owned by Graham who has to be one of the nicest individuals I have encountered in a long time. Its a family run business and Graham has a staff of extremely skilled kickboxing trainers that will whip you in shape. They may look a little intimidating at first but once you get past the exterior appearance they are as kind and friendly as Graham. I have never kicked boxed before but I am willing to give it a shot. I figure why not get cut and develop the skills needed to defend myself in the event the need arises! I should mention there are free classes starting next week so you should come check it out. I posted a photo as well so you can see what the space looks like. I should mention the picture does not do the space any justice.

Hope you see you there.

West Loop needs bodega

We need a bodega in the west loop, west of Racine and south of Washington. Currently residents in the area have precious few if any options to purchase basic foodstuffs without trekking several blocks. Walkability is key to this neighborhood's success.

  • NAFSBUC Walking my Fitbit and Flatcoat 10k steps/day

    The Ashland, Ogden, Monroe area is sooo under served. I just don't understand it. Why Walgreens on Western and zilch on Ashland or Damen...grrr

  • A CVS store would be ideal. Right now you need to take public transportation or drive to get to these CVS locations:

    1. Western and Chicago Avenue
    2. Roosevelt and Racine
    3. Madison and Kedzie
    4. Odgen and Chicago Avenue
    5. Western and Division (by the Chicago Fire Department)

    I am surprise CVS did not bid/least the Madison and Ashland lot (former Kentucky Fried Chicken location).
