  • Lemme guess. Is it Doc Brown the self-proclaimed, unaffiliated political activist who can't make a living selling craft work made in a government subsidized space that is fronting as an art studio? Yes. It is Emmett Lathrop "Doc" Brown.

  • Did he get evicted from Mercy Housing? First his mouthpiece is going away and now this news? It is CHRISTMAS IN JULY!

Do You Recognize This (Alleged) Package Thief?

We can't stress this enough:

    Do You Recognize This (Alleged) Package Thief?
    We can't stress this enough: Don't let anyone you don't know or aren't expecting into your building. Don't let them follow you inside. Don't buzz anyone in if they are ringing all the doorbells. Because that's how stuff like this happens. We heard from a property manager on Tuesday with these security photos attached (cropped and lightened for clarity).

Strip Mall Preservation

The current vacant strip mall at 4600 N. Magnolia

    Strip Mall Preservation
    Disappointing (or joyous) news depending which side of "strip mall preservation" you are on. According to Ald. Cappleman's ward development page, the owner of the mostly vacant strip mall at 4600 N. Magnolia that was slated for a five-story transit oriented development, and was given approval by the local block club, is not moving forward.

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    Another CappleFailure.

    Womp womp.....

  • Yes. Thank goodness when the next proposal comes in, it will go to the entire Sheridan Park Neighbors Association. I heard that it was recently agreed upon that any development on a major thoroughfare will now to go to SPNA with all 4 block clubs getting a say. Progress!

Awful! Sad! No More! Stop demolishing Chicago's beautiful old homes

Leyla Royale stands in front of the house at 1441 W. Carmen in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood on July 12, 2018. Royale started a petition in an effort to halt the planned demolition of the property.

    Awful! Sad! No More! Stop demolishing Chicago's beautiful old homes
    By late Thursday, Leyla Royale's online petition had gathered nearly a thousand signatures, far more than she'd imagined when she posted her plea the day before. "Save 1441 Carmen from Demolition" the petition urged, and one by one, the hopeful signed. "This building is the last of its kind in the entire neighborhood," one supporter wrote.
