Jamba Juice on Diversey & Clark?

Does anybody know why this location closed? It seemed to be busy and it's been at this location forever now.

  • Part of the problem is property taxes. I know several people who sold residential and commercial buildings in the last 15 years in Lakeview and Lincoln Park because they were unable to pay their mortgage and their property taxes with all units occupied at market rent...

  • Many years ago, there was a similar issue on Clark St near Belden with empty storefront after empty storefront. It was actually more profitable for the landlord to have the vacant storefronts than have them rented as this way, they were a tax write off. The owner didn't live in Chicago so it didn't matter to him what it was doing to the neighborhood.

City Dough Space

Does anyone know what is happening with the City Dough space on Sheffield/Wellington? It seems like it has been closed for a while with little to no news (and I am starting to OD on Panes...).

  • I miss Pompei too. It was so popular and good. Why did they close? And is there rumor they are coming back?

  • The rumor I heard about Pompei was that the owner sold the location to DMK with the rights to still operate the location as a Pompei. Then for whatever reason they decided to close it.

Hawthorne School - Field

Does anyone know if there are groups or organizations that are allowed to reserve the entire field next to the school? We were there playing with our children a few weekends ago when a huge group of people playing soccer completely overtook the entire field and essentially pushed us out.

  • Alex D Resident since 2009

    There are city leagues that have the field reserved for games on some nights. Also youth leagues during the day on some weekends.

  • Frank T. Teacher in Lakeview

    I coach for a school, and we have permits on us at all times in case there's a conflict.

  • I was wondering who you can contact to make a reservation or see the schedule?

Loud noise

    @ D3 "Some of us won't be voting for this administration regardless of who their opponents are."

    So, you really think the alternative candidates are going to get you ->LESS<- revenue sucking to support Chicago's theft class ? ; ) - that's a truly hilarious notion.

    The politics and ideology of the emerging alternative candidates REALLY suggest THAT to you ??? : )

Car Accident on LSD

This is the second car accident on LSD to wake me out of bed in the middle of the night this week. This one caught on fire and the other one the car flipped over! Be careful driving my neighbors!

  • Carol Senal Resident of 3600 N Lake Shore Drive

    There are so many accidents at this juncture in both directions that they have to replace the guard rail constantly.

  • dse

    Carol is so right. I look down on that spot, and we've seen probably a dozen vehicles break thru that barriers, and many more smash into it. Something about the slight curve and downgrade from the overpass? It seemed to lighted after the repaving, but we still don't use that bus stop or crosswalk to the underpass.

Local Business

Does anyone know what they are putting at the corner of School and Ashland? Across from the Whole Foods.

  • Strip mall w vitamin shoppe and others, I think panera backed out. Yes old bank lot.

  • They can start work at 7, but they cannot use heavy machinery or create a noise disturbance before 8. If they are being loud enough to disturb residences prior to 8, I think they are violating the noise ordinance. I have found my alderman's office to be very helpful in these situations.
