Everyblock vs Nextdoor in Norwood Park

I have my favorite but would like to hear what peeps up in Norwood Park think.

If you could only use one, which would you choose? ...and why? Which do you find to be more informative, to have better features, community outreach, support etc? ...or is there another social neighborhood network you prefer to use? ie Facebook, Yahoo Groups, Foursquare

To help compare, i put together a chart:

For those who are not familiar with ND, but curious, here's an invite link:

    I like Nextdoor better so far, but have been on there for about 2 years. I just recently started on EB this August. I bought a little white kitchen set for my daughter for $28 on ND and it turned out that the seller lived right nextdoor to some long time friends of mine! This kitchen was originally almost $300 and in great condition.

    I also feel like ND has better navigation too. I get alerts for new posts where as EB I am only getting alerts if someone thanks me on something. I also opted for the postcard and actually invited 20+ people in my neighborhood to join ND.

    I'm hoping EB will grow on me.

RV Storage

Does anyone know where there is RV storage in the area? Did a Google search and nothing came up close by. Thanks in advance.

    You might want to try some self storage places. If they have a decent size parking lot they might offer parking spaces for boats, trailers, etc.

Cable options in 60631?

Good afternoon ... my wife and I are moving to Norwood Park and I was disappointed to learn we won't be able to bring our RCN Cable and Internet service with us. A friend nearby in Park Ridge recommended WOW but they also don't serve 60631. Is Comcast the ONLY non-dish provider in the area? If not, I'd love others' recommendations. Thank you!!

  • Thanks for the advice, new neighbors!

    My only concern with cutting cable completely is the only thing we consistently watch live is sports and I'm not convinced we'd get everything we're looking for from an over-the-air HD signal. Again, I appreciate the feedback.

  • We have direct tv for over 12 years and I would never get Comcast, we love it.

Sears won't survive past 2016?

Here is an excerpt from yesterday's article in Crain's Chicago

Fitch Ratings today downgraded Sears Holdings Corp.'s credit rating to CC from CCC, a move driven by the retailer's continuing decline in profitability and the rate at which it's burning through cash. The agency warned that Sears may not have enough funding to support operations beyond 2016.

If Sears goes down, what will happen to Six Corners? I don't love the big ugly building and rarely shop at Sears, but it'll be exponentially worse if the store closes.

  • Lucas Museum Annex!

  • pattymelt is mostly in charge

    We could preserve the Sears as it is and charge money to enter the time capsule.
