    Bronzville......You need to check the current "updated" CITY maps of the neighborhoods. Looks like Fuller park actually starts to the East side of the tracks, not to the west. Actually according their map of TODAY, Canaryville, is now called New City...According to their map as well, Bridgeport splits at the River. 1/2 is Bridgeport other half is McKinley Park. No clue where you get that Armour Square is a Traditional African Community. There, you couldn't be more wrong....On this earth for 62 yrs and NEVER saw it as nothing but Italian-Americans and Croatians..Today,there is many Asians there as well. Pretty soon it will be renamed "The New Chinatown".

Water Meter Installation 2018 Update

After getting this water meter installed in 2014, I really wanted it to be a ripoff, like most other city services. But after four years of water bills, I can safely say that unless you're emptying Lake Michigan every time you shower, a metered account is a better deal. If you're on the fence, just do it.

https://youtu.be/PD1EcOw55tM

    Water Meter Installation Update - 2018
    Four years after the installation of my water meter, the half-yearly charges are less than a quarter of what they were when I was being billed for non-metered water. It's a great deal, as long as you keep the bill paid on time, which, of course, you do with all your bills.

Is it safe around the 47th Red Line station at 11 pm - 12 am?

For a few weeks, I will have to get off the Red Line and get on bus 47 (and vice versa) between 11 pm and 12 am. How safe (or not safe) is that area for someone to be standing around waiting for the train/bus?

  • @MeeLee - I meant not having your phone out walking around with your nose buried in it and headphones blaring - vs doing a quick check for the bus. As far as the attackers, actually, a lot of these instances are happening at the hands of teens ... skinny little pipsqueaks barely 160 pounds who never had a father to teach them you shouldn't rob people.

  • Ah, ok. Not glued to phone. Gotcha. :) I’m not intending to walk around anywhere farther than the train station and bus stop.

    I’m 120 lbs but I think I’ll be pretty good at whacking a 160-lb guy. Must bring whacker.

Disney's 'Frozen' opens on Broadway with a warm sister bond — and Elsa gives her all with 'Let it Go'

“Frozen" plays at the St. James Theatre, 246 W. 44th St. in New York; www.frozenthemusical.com.

    Disney's 'Frozen' opens on Broadway with a warm sister bond - and Elsa gives her all with 'Let it Go'
    Vastly improved from its rocky Denver tryout, director Michael Grandage's heavily sold production of Disney's "Frozen" is set to open here Thursday night, replete with richer storytelling, less extraneous comedy and with its crucial pair of sisters, who in Denver seemed all iced up in some chilly corner of the castle, finally letting go enough emotionally to thaw the center of their mutually dependent story.
