Mike's Floral Shop Gone!!! :-(

I know the building has been up for sale for year and the floral shop remained opened BUT I drove by today and the place is cleared out inside!! So so sad!!! It's been around since we moved to the neighborhood in the 70's. We ALWAYS got our flowers there for special occasions...Communions, Proms, Weddings, etc. So sad to see it go.

  • Teresa Groat Resident of Old Norwood

    We used to frequent an Italian restaurant on Higgins right behind the old Osco pharmacy (name escapes me now). It's been closed for a number of years but saw some activity there last week. Anybody know what's up?

  • Daniela Ortiz Great Minds

    You mean Roselli's(?). I think that was it, behind the CVS east of Nagle.

    Is Mike's the one by Mather's on Higgins?

Christmas is OVER....

I know it's been cold out so the removal of your Christmas decorations is kind of hard but it's January 13th....DON'T LIGHT THE LIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!

  • Artfulmisslee master of the house, keeper of the zoo.

    Call me silly, but I'd enjoy those little bits of lights all year if I could.....when I leave the house in the morning at 6:00a.m.. it's dark....I come home from work, again, dark (and cold).... they make me feel happy. I personally don't have any decorations left up, but I do enjoy the outside lights. Now, the deflated Santa's are kinda sad and a little disturbing though...lol Happy New Year!

  • Chuck Johnson Assistant Director, New Hope Community Food Pantry

    Personally, I like the lights. Yes, Christmas is over, but this is a terribly dreary time of year...anything to add a little bright/cheer/color is delightful.

Higgins Storefront West of Harlem

Does anyone know if there are any plans to do anything with the storefront along Higgins just west of Harlem? With the exception of Taco Burrito King, Mathers, a flower shop and HarHig bar, it just sits. I moved into the neighborhood in 2008 and nothing has come in during that time. There was a flurry of remodeling activity at one point last year but that seems to have gone nowhere.

  • Agreed... I just moved in the neighborhood and it's a shame to see so many empty store fronts.

  • I agree as well. It is starting to look like a pretty pathetic block - an the businesses that ARE there don't do too much for keeping their storefronts clean, tidy and appealing looking. The area definitely needs some economic reinvigoration. Also Harlem, between Higgins and Foster could use a little street-scaping.

Hawk Sighting

Today I saw a hawk on my neighbor's fence that stood about a foot and a half high with a 3 foot wing span. Fair warning to those who have small dogs and cats outdoors. I have seen these hawks carry off dogs and cats. It is very unusual to see a hawk in the city so beware.

  • We've seen the red tailed hawk around our house in Norwood Park a few times this past year.

  • The hawks have been around the Foster/Harlem area for a few years now! I saw one just the other day sitting on top of the light pole at Foster and Merrimac. They keep the vermin down but you do need to check when letting your dogs out. One of the first times I saw one it was eating a rabbit in a neighbor's tree!
