So, what's going happening on Waveland and Sheffield outside Wrigley?

Last week, they put up barricades along the sidewalks on the west side of Sheffield and the south side of Waveland. And they took out a lane of parking on both streets, too, redrawing lanes for vehicular traffic. The "no parking" signs posted only go through Sept. 30.

Anybody have any idea what's going on here?

    When you moved in the neighborhood you did not realize there was a ballpark at Clark & Addison? Don't think they are moving anywhere in any of our lifetimes.

    What a joke. Love those that complain about an iconic venue that likely impacts your home value positively. If you rent and you decided on this location then count your days and don't renew your lease. I have lived in the shadows of Wrigley for nearly 17 years now and...

    What a joke. Love those that complain about an iconic venue that likely impacts your home value positively. If you rent and you decided on this location then count your days and don't renew your lease. I have lived in the shadows of Wrigley for nearly 17 years now and have found them to be a good neighbor. If you ever want to point your sights on someone then look to the bars on Clark or even the TBOX organizer, Chris Festa. So far the Rickett's have not caused a mess or have made my daily living an issue. I am glad the Cubs are bringing improvements to Lakeview. Now if the developer would start tearing down the storefronts from Addison through Clark that would be progress and is much overdue.

Christmas in August (almost Sept.)

I have 20 rolls of Christmas wrapping paper (mostly unopened) that I am never going to use. Does anyone need it? Or does anyone know of a charity or church group who might want it. Thanks!

  • That would be great if you could pick it up, it's yours! Please let me know what would be a good time for you. Thanks!!

  • Gloria P. 22-year resident of Roscoe Village

    Hi Claire, Sorry I'm just seeing your message. I can pick it up tomorrow or Wednesday evening if that works for you. Anytime after 6pm. Let me know. Thanks!

Hard Candy Source?

I've recently developed a liking for hard candy. Do you know of a store that offers a good variety? I mostly shop at Jewel and Whole Foods, and they seem to concentrate on chocolates and chewy candies, with just a sampling of hard candies. Now I'm interested in branching out a bit.

Van Stolen with Everything in it

Hey Guys,

On May 2nd, I was moving a bunch of stuff back home and I decided to stop by a friends place about 11 PM that night (Friday).

The Van, a Mercury Villager 1995 which was the vehicle I was driving, was parked on the corner of Lakeshore Drive and Brompton. It was full of my belongings including a Guitar, Amp and a bunch of sneakers. Because of the fact that I parked on lakeshore drive in front of...

Hey Guys,

On May 2nd, I was moving a bunch of stuff back home and I decided to stop by a friends place about 11 PM that night (Friday).

The Van, a Mercury Villager 1995 which was the vehicle I was driving, was parked on the corner of Lakeshore Drive and Brompton. It was full of my belongings including a Guitar, Amp and a bunch of sneakers. Because of the fact that I parked on lakeshore drive in front of that condo building (Where my friend lives), I had a sense of security so I fell asleep. Unfortunately, I woke up the next day around 6AM to only walk outside and see that my Van was missing. I looked everywhere, checked every pound and had no luck what so ever. I was hoping that the city moved it so I waited at Recreation drive to see if my van would arrive and it didn't. Like an Idiot, I should've just went home and unloaded but after a long day of moving, I was done. Lesson Learned? Absolutely but if anyone could help with any leads, that would be greatly appreciated. Attached is a photo of the Van.

Be careful, Lakeview is starting to become a hot spot for shady business. I went to a few buildings to see if they saw anything and they all shared stories of auto thefts, break ins around that area.

  • Shelly Lifelong suburbanite, now in South Lakeview.

    Oscar, I'm glad you already reported it stolen to authorities and have been checking sites! I was curious since you waited almost 4 months to post on here! Good luck!

  • Philip Independent Business owner ,47th. ward since 1968

    It's probably too late now , but if you could have checked the buildings security cameras or others in the neighborhood you may have seen if it was towed by away possibly not by the CPD. Some car thieves use tow vehicle's . Big story on the news a while back about a scrap yard found with many stolen cars on property being brought in by private pirates , I mean tow trucks. Security cameras are everywhere .

Just want to point out a great little Lakeview business I have come across, "Cookies by Design". The make awesome cookies of every type size and taste. They have really impressive gifts for those who have a sweet tooth. Don't take my word for it, they have a five cookie sampler for $5 that is to "die for...". Its nice having these smaller stores take root in Lakeview and as residents we should do our best to support them. This place is super clean, the cookies are great and the service friendly and fast.

This is my shameless plug of a local business but its honest. Try and stop by when you can. Its worth it. They are near Cooper's restaurant. across from the Wit Theater and Theatre 773.

Have a great Labor Day weekend.

  • By my count they have stores in 34 states.

    So every neighborhood business that is owned by a local franchisee is, by definition, not worthy of being considered a local business? Tough crowd.
