Edgewater Shooting Monday Afternoon Sends Residents Running For Cover

On Monday afternoon, as neighborhood residents walked their usual path from the busy Thorndale Red Line to get home for the evening, shots rang out at 3;45 p.m. It caused people to run for their lives not knowing where the shots were being fired. Many ducked into nearby businesses for cover. Only 45 minutes earlier, Swift […]

FREE Car Washes on Monday

Free car washes at the new facility which opened on the corner of North Clark and Peterson. This is a brand-new facility that you can't miss just across the street from White Castle.

I've been there twice already with both my vehicles and was really happy with the results.

They are offering the 'Deluxe' $15 wash free. Help the merchant and spread the word here on EB and Facebook.

Help spread the wird through social media if you use this se

  • Perhaps her hood was scratched before the CWash? They have video cameras all over the lot and attendants at the entrance and the exit. Why no interaction with the owner or the staff by your daughter or by you?

  • Bill in Rogers Park Rogers Parker - co-founder of Glenwood Neighbors

    Al - sorry to hear about your experience at Rogers Park Car Wash. I have been going there for a year now - about every 3 weeks or so - and the owner or his son is there and they are great. Very hands-on. I have been really pleased so far.

Wanted: space to hold group meditation programs

Hello, I'm an integrative medicine practitioner on staff at Rush, & have a private practice in Andersonville.

In early 2015, I'll be facilitating a 6-week meditation series for people who would like to learn more about the mind/body connection, & explore a variety of meditation skills to help reduce stress and enhance well-being.

I'm looking for a beautiful, warm, extremely quiet, cozy, carpeted space that's large enough to comfortably hold 15-20 ppl who will meet 1x per week for 6-weeks (most likely held in the evening or wkend).

If you have any creative ideas, please contact me.

Thank you and happy holidays.


  • RTG_RP Doing things.

    It's not carpeted necessarily, but you may be able to use some of the props there to make sitting more comfortable, but maybe you can rent some space at Yoga Tree.

New Community

Has anyone noticed the growing new neighborhood under the Foster LSD underpass? Includes a large group of homeless with recliner chairs Christmas socks and houses. Also at the Lawrence underpass. What are donations to the foodbank good if they don't use it. Is the begging for alcohol and drugs and should we encourage these villages to grow? Have written Alderman 3 times with no response or action... Maybe we need to get a new Alderman..

  • Hard drinkin' Lincoln ahh! A torrent of psychological abuse!

    A lot of decrepit Sro's have been shut down, the last cluster of Lawrence House tenants left awhile back.

  • People's needs:

    Money is not included in this list. The most that the average person can do for a random unknown person requesting help is offer food or water.
    BTW, if you really care about the homeless people you see on the street, cook up an awesome dinner and bring it to them. A nice, hearty, proper meal is something many homeless seldom see.

Jewelry Repair Recommendations

Looking for someone to fix a gold chain in the Andersonville/Edgewater area. Obviously I don't want to overpay. Looked at Yelp, but most of the businesses listed are into Cash 4 Gold. I just want a decent repair shop, possibly one where I can have an antique watch repaired in the future. But right now I'm just looking for someone to fix the chain.

  • Nick-G Lakewood-Balmoral since the Millennium

    Went today, chain repair is reasonable (ten dollars) and I left the watch for an estimate. Appreciate everyone who took the time to give their feedback.

  • Thanks to everyone's advice, I got a reasonable quote for resizing for two rings at Bryn Mawr Jewelers. 45 bucks a ring! Best price that I've found!

Today while leaving the house a man tried to hand me this flyer. I said "no thank you". He then spat on me, began swearing and threatening me. When I tried to leave he began following me until I ran away. While I've handled informing the authorities who may need to know about this, I am now informing you. Please do not hire Mariano's Garage Doors and Construction. It is NOT ok what happened and being sexually harassed, or any harassment whatsoever things is unacceptable. Please share with the rest of Chicago.

    If she did not take the flyer am I to assume she found a flyer, or had the same flyer in her home or did a friend give her the flyer. Did she yes or no get the flyer from the diner? I still agree with 60660Gal u dig. In a court of law i.e. defamation of character/slander against the diner Jessie would have to explain where she got flyer she posted with this thread. This thread is a perfect example of how people "believe everything posted on inter-net but I won't swing my pendelum to find out if Jessie is lieing. I will leave that fact of responsibility up to the posters of this thread.

  • Sun God King of Death, Sorcery,Necro, Witch,Shadow,Sith

    Jessie, good morning an Happy Holidays. What is the name of the company that owns the diner you say is not a member of the Chamber of Commerce? Rogers Park and Edgwater there are several mexican men passing out neighborhood diner menus. We will not allow 1 person's view of them to slant us as a community against them.

  • Mrs S RP/WR resident since 1991

    There is drop box at St Hilary's for St Vincent DePaul 5614 North Fairfield Avenue, Chicago, IL 60659 Also, AmVets will pick up.

    That was over 10 years ago,CPs went through a lot since then I'm sure.

  • Sandy R in Edgewater Edgewater resident

    These all used to be great schools and I am sure they could be again. It all really starts with involved parents. My dad graduated from Sullivan in '57 and my grandfather graduated from Lakeview in '28. After two generations in the burbs, we're back on the north side. Our daughter is graduating with her degree in math education from IU and plans to apply to CPS.
