  • Mute Truth is not determined by majority vote

    Im ok w renting too. But when i can afford over 2k a month ill own. Might be cheaper! But then again maybe if i was making enough to afford over 2k a month i might spend nore frivolously!

  • Jerry Cargill Photographer, Teacher, Live on Milwaukee Ave.

    I'm 49 and I own. I wonder, how easy or difficult is it for a young person to get a mortgage who just happens to be suffocating under student debt and is working entry level?

One last look at Chicago’s infamous Rock ‘N’ Roll McDonalds

While skyscraper enthusiasts have long salivated over the idea of the block-sized site sprouting a high-rise development similar to the nearby One Chicago Square proposal, the next building at 600 N. Clark Street—also a McDonald’s restaurant—will likely be shorter than the structure it replaces.

    After serving its last customer and closing its doors on December 30, Chicago's famous Rock 'N' Roll McDonald's is biting the dust. Made famous for its kitschy 20th century decor, occasional late night brawls, and a song by Wesley Willis, the busy downtown franchise store will soon join its adjacent memorabilia pavilion as a pile of rubble.
