    Black Panther's identity politics give the superhero genre a fresh spin
    The first black superhero in mainstream American comics, Marvel's Black Panther came with an African pedigree: in real life he's the ancestral king of a small, impoverished sub-Saharan nation that conceals a secret empire, the whole operation empowered by an asteroid from outer space.

    It's a movie...a very good movie...but just a movie folks.

    Thank goodness! There were way too many positive and on-topic comments. EB’s personal sniping mojo had been restored. Never disappoints!

Speaking of parking issues in Rogers Park... an old gentleman across the street on North Shore has a designated handicap spot. When he returns from wherever, he parks in his spot. Then, as soon as an adjacent spot opens up he removes his placard from the window and moves his car there, taking up an extra space.

I fume every time I see this. What’s his deal? Does he just like an unobstructed view of the street? And, (yes, I know you can’t always tell), he doesn’t seem to have a disability.

It just apppears selfish and un-neighborly.

    Yeah, sure you do.

    Michael, you noticed. Specifically, the topic of this thread was handicapped parking spaces. I don't think that subject has been mentioned since early Monday.

Hello, neighbor. This thread was closed due to violations of the EveryBlock community guidelines, which intend to keep discussions informative, friendly and respectful.

Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

This Friday, travel south of the border without leaving Rogers Park. Follow Me on Friday to the newest addition to Morse Avenue’s burgeoning restaurant scene–South of the Border at 1416 W. Morse. Join me tomorrow (Friday, February 23rd), from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., for a complementary sampler plate of arepas, Cuban sandwiches and empanadas. Wash them down with a complimentary beer, wine, or the house specialty–a margarita. Owners Antoinio and Maribel Diaz will welcome you with warm Latin hospitality. They have more than 10 years of restaurant and bar experience and are very excited to achieve their lifelong dream of owning and operating their own restaurant. South of the Border is also known for its chicken jibarito sandwich, which comes with a side of fries, and the picadillo Cubano, which can best be described as a plate of Cuban comfort food. Cap off your dinner with a bunuelos, a generous plate of fried doughnut fritters lightly sprinkled with sugar and accompanied with a cup of raspberry sauce. South of the Border is definitely a place you want to be this Friday night! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday.

Is 7710 N Sheridan a bad building?

I have a friend who lives in the building and he's about to get lose his subsidized housing because the owner can't get the cockroach infestation under control. Apparently it is so bad it failed CHA inspection repeatedly. I've also heard there are a few drug dealers living there.

So I have a favor to ask of my neighbors. If you see something, SAY SOMETHING.

You can report any of the following:
- public intoxication
- building/safety violations
- insect/rodent...

So I have a favor to ask of my neighbors. If you see something, SAY SOMETHING.

You can report any of the following:
- public intoxication
- building/safety violations
- insect/rodent infestation
- drug related activity
- trash on grounds or sidewalks
- overflowing dumpsters
- noise disturbances
- domestic disputes
In summation, problems normal people don't live with.

If you are afraid of retribution, please send me an email or post below. I will respect anyone's wishes for anonymity. I just can't believe our neighborhood has become complacent to this stuff. If you are also wanting to make a difference, please call the police and report it. The more reports with that address, the more likely the Bad Buildings department can make a case against a slumlord. I will take all information sent to me and share it with the person which the power to make thing better for our neighborhood.

Yes, slumlord is a strong word, but the majority of units are owned by the same person and he is responsible for creating and fixing the neglect.

  • Walking the Light:
    Special assessments?
    Rising regular assessments.
    A building like this will need a lot of work.
    Market conditions?
    A renter just doesn't appear.
    I know the building and have been inside.
    IF you could get a renter just to the front door to the unit it'd be amazing....

    The way you figure it out seems reminiscent of slum lording.
    You can't JUST figure it out long term and just numbers don't work.
    How about the uncalculatable; owner/neighbors and neighbor/neighbors?
    If they don't take care of the place, this piece of pie in the sky is spoiled faster then those roaches can get to it.
    It's apparent the majority of owners in this building want to maximize their return on rents or not pay appropriate assessments if residing so they keep assessments low IN PLACE of making repairs and extermination.
    A simple 30 year calculation would show none of this.
    There's more to buying a condo then buying a condo.

    Anaheim Chiles are a variant of the New Mexican Green chiles grown in Califonia and I suspect the canned green chiles may be from California. I've heard you can get Hatch green chiles at Walmart, but I haven't tried those.

  • The gold standard of green chiles are flame-roasted chiles from the Hatch Valley, New Mexico. Jalapeños, Serranos and the green chiles in the little 4oz cans aren't the same. Hatch chiles, which are harvested in August and September, aren't available fresh in Chicago but this is the next best alternative. https://www.505southwestern.com/sauces

Via has extended $3.95 rides for another week!

I want to make sure everyone knows about the rideshare service Via, which has just extended its coverage to Rogers Park.

In the several times I've taken it over the last week, I paid $3.95 to go to the South Loop from Howard/Greenview--and no one else ever shared my ride. (This is a special price to promote their expansion to Rogers Park, and they have extended the special pricing for one more week, but their normal Rogers Park-downtown fare is $10-12.)

You can get $10 worth of free rides by using a referral code--mine is stephanie4k3, if you need one.

I don't work for Via--I just want them to continue to serve our neighborhood!

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    The only tasks I perform are grocery shopping, using uber, and the occasion purchase on ebay, target or amazon. We can each get $5 (maybe 10) if you use my referral ID mwct4a.

    In two years, I've received over $400 in rebates (cash, amazon gift cards, etc.)

Chicago Waldorf Moving to Andersonville

This is a bittersweet post as our kids attend CWS and we really like the Rogers Park neighborhood. However, the chance to own instead of rent, plus the fact that the Trumbull site gives the teachers and students nearly twice the square footage is a huge plus. Here's hoping that another school takes over the old Loyola buildings. It's good to have activity in this area.

    Chicago Waldorf School Coming to Andersonville
    Dear Neighbor, As of February 20, 2018, the Lyman Trumbull Elementary School building is now the future home to the Chicago Waldorf School. Svigos Development and Waldorf have been in negotiations over the last few months for the purchase of the property where Waldorf will relocate its main campus.
