Thinking of Moving to Uptown (Magnolia and Montrose)

Hi everyone! My husband and I are currently renting in Lakeview, but we've outgrown my one bedroom apartment, so we're looking to buy our first condo. We're in our early 30s and don't have any kids yet, but we're thinking about starting a family in the next few years.

Hi everyone! My husband and I are currently renting in Lakeview, but we've outgrown my one bedroom apartment, so we're looking to buy our first condo. We're in our early 30s and don't have any kids yet, but we're thinking about starting a family in the next few years. We've got our eye on a unit near Magnolia and Montrose, but I wanted to reach out to see if anyone on here would be willing to share any thoughts about living in the area. What do you guys like about it? What don't you like? Any thoughts on safety? As far as I can tell, the area around Magnolia and Montrose seems pretty safe, but I'm hoping to get some info from people who actually live nearby. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

"Uptown Doughnuts" Coming Soon To 1122 W. Wilson

We had wondered what was in store for the one story retail building just west of the tracks on Wilson. At one time, Viet Bowl occupied one space with Hing Wang Chinese in the middle. The two businesses consolidated into one and more recently, the windows of the old Viet Bowl were covered.

Rap instigator Tyler, the Creator shows he’s more than you think he is on Flower Boy

Fri 3/2 and Sat 3/3, 6:30 PM, Aragon Ballroom, 1106 W. Lawrence, $55, all-ages

    Rap instigator Tyler, the Creator shows he's more than you think he is on Flower Boy
    After Tyler, the Creator dropped his fourth solo record, Flower Boy (Columbia), in July it quickly became cliche to describe it as his "mature album." Granted, Tyler and his pals in the Odd Future collective made an indelible impression on music culture when they broke out in 2011-and his presence as a violently foul-mouthed miscreant with a predilection for homophobic, misogynistic lyrics was partially responsible for their initial infamy.

Chicago Magic Lounge Brings Back the City's 'Close-Up' Magic Tradition, In Style

There’s no obvious mystery behind the ordinary brick façade of 5050 N. Clark Street.

    Chicago Magic Lounge Brings Back the City's 'Close-Up' Magic Tradition, In Style
    There's no obvious mystery behind the ordinary brick façade of 5050 N. Clark Street. But if passers-by looked up at the neon letters on the ceiling above the door, they'd discover the word "misdirection"-and their first clue that this 1940s-era commercial laundry is not what it seems. If visitors can work out the right path through the washers and dryers, they will enter a hidden world of artifice, ruse, and subterfuge where roving magicians befuddle all who enter.

Former JJ Pepper Storefront Available For Lease

According to a real estate brochure that a keen-eyed reader sent in, JJ Pepper has fully abandoned its Lawrence and Sheridan storefront and the property is for lease. This puts to an end speculation that the store would be reopening as a modernized version of itself with the same ownership.
