Venting

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.

  • Phill I don’t know why you’re are assuming I was responding to you, especially when I directed my post to Patrick Quinn.. unless you’re two people in one I never said it was ok for people to get spots for “service people”. That’s just plain ignorant on that persons part and I again would take it up with someone to investigate it.. otherwise that completely sucks. Maybe my message fell below your message but my comment had nothing to do with your comment. I’m not a bad personality like that

    @Phill: Prices are lower on many items at some of the other Jewels such as in Evanston, I know that because I use them and often purchase the same items. I've also noticed a quality difference, such as I purchase a new simple wine opener at Jewel in Gateway recently...

    @Phill: Prices are lower on many items at some of the other Jewels such as in Evanston, I know that because I use them and often purchase the same items. I've also noticed a quality difference, such as I purchase a new simple wine opener at Jewel in Gateway recently for $8 and it's a piece of junk... I didn't have the receipt, so I kept it, but the next day I purchased one elsewhere for the same amount that was well built.

    @ d3: Yes, I have changed my opinion of Jewel and will again. When they start dropping the ball my opinion of them goes downhill. When they fix the problems it goes back up. It's not really my opinion that changes so much as to the variation in their level of service, quality of food / product, quality of service / staff and prices. My opinion varies in concert with their quality factors (etc).

    But, at the end of the day I would prefer they clean up shop because I prefer to shop right here in Rogers Park at Gateway's Jewel than run to Evanston. I want the Gateway Jewel to be all that it can be vs. failing inspections, lower quality products, higher prices, etc.

    And at the same time when going to other Jewels I find other stores I really like, such as right by the Jewel on Chicago Ave, there's a Trader Joe's; right around the Jewel on Howard by McCormick there's a Mariano's; etc.

    And at the same time, I do a good amount of shopping at Morse Market, Rogers Park Fruit Market, Romanian Deli and so on. BTW d3, I've never had any problem with Rogers Park Fruit Market,

    Anyway, that's my two-cents along with my latest updated opinion. Also keep in mind, Jewel failed to pass another inspection which is NOT a good sign of a well run store.

What's going on at Devon Market?

Devon Market has been closed for two days and there's a sign on the inner door that says "License suspended. Chicago Department of Public Health".

The outer doors say "Closed for repairs.".

Can anyone find the violations? I've looked and I'm coming up empty.

    Word on Facebook is that the store reopened on Tuesday and is looking spanking clean.

  • See health code violations, they had a fail which is now a pass. Lots of rodent droppings found.

    The gateway was a rough timeline. Took years to complete. As was many of the developments on Howard. I have many photos of gateway under construction and the Howard theatre.

  • Alderman Moore,
    Thank you for letting us know about the development on Howard and Bosworth, very close to me. I was sad to see the beautiful street art that the former building had go, but the building was definitely in a horrid state of disrepair. I hope rent prices are in tune with the neighborhood and that it will encourage a little commercial development. We have some great small businesses, but too many empty store fronts.

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

I enjoyed a delicious lunch of West African cuisine this afternoon and then cut the ribbon on the 49th Ward's newest restaurant, Miss B & J African Cuisine at 7027 N. Clark. Joining me were the B and J in the restaurant's name--sisters Beatrice (in the chef's uniform) and Josephine (to her left) Asongany and their family members. Joining me in welcoming the Asongany family to the neighborhood were Sheree Moratto and Sandi Price (far right) from the Rogers Park Business Alliance. The restaurant is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. If you're looking for an unforgettable meal, stop by for lunch or dinner!

Stucco Bungalows on Arthur, 1915

Labels: Arthur and Clark, Arthur Avenue, bungalow, Chicago, developers, Neils Buck, Rogers Park, stucco, typology

...there in the early 1970s. There were also two small buildings at the corner of Schreiber & Clark, which housed the Misener Animal Hospital, which also had to move for the police station...

Because the traction company property line was the northern boundary, the houses on the south side of the 1700 block of Albion have some of the longest lots in Chicago, 180 feet long.

    Republishing this with a new historic image I just found! I've written a number of posts about collections of homes planned, designed and built by early developers in the neighborhood. These range from a few identical cottages to more complex arrangements of alternating designs.

Property taxes = corruption

Confirmed, mine trippled since 95.
Unsustainable.

  • Phill "Obama wants to know everything"

    Chicago is structured like that, Democratic politicians love heavy taxation for home owners (The socialist concept has always been to tax the successful) then use that money to support people that always vote for the Democratic party. If they need more money, then they take it from drivers when they go to work, using money making machines like speed cameras.

  • Phill "Obama wants to know everything"

    I disagree with Bruce in one thing, though, Do not mute Michael Archangel. His comments are very entertaining and they will bring a smile to your face and make you have a happy day filled with happy feelings.
