Construction

What is going on with the factory on the 2700 block of armitage? I have not seen anyone working there for months.

  • Rick Stoneham Logan resident since 1984

    Probably a permit issue. I’ve been worried about the lake that formed on the site as a mosquito breeding pond. But yesterday saw workmen draining it. It looks like construction will start again but I’ve been wrong before. I have to look down on it every day.

  • They are awaiting a shipment of steel. The cost of steel went up due to the Trump tariffs and now the supplier can't honor the original quote.

    To clarify: They are delayed waiting for the shipment, the tariff thing is my own speculation. There were men in the yesterday working.

Friendly feral near Belden/Central Park

We've had a black TNR cat slinking around our 'hood for about a year but he's been increasingly hanging out in our yard and on our porch. We like the little guy and don't mind--I'm just curious if he has a caretaker/has a colony he's part of.

  • They do seem to get attached to certain yards..even people..though they don't get close. Was there a pic?

  • You might be talking about our next door neighbor's cat - we're at Fullerton and Lawndale right behind The Little Pickle, and our elderly neighbor cares for a mostly feral black cat that he calls for named "Beady" (i.e., beady eyes). If you see a calico cat around it too sometimes, that is the other cat he cares for, but he much prefers the black one.

Bookkeeper needed

I am looking for a bookkeeper for my business which is in the neighborhood. Experience in manufacturing is a plus as we have many employees and ship a lot of product. I am checking here before posting to the usual places. Let me know if you or someone you know is interested.

  • Hi George-

    I posted about 1 month ago looking for a bookkeeper as well. Hopefully you get more response than I. Where else are you posting?

  • Tomorrow is another day Happy resident of North Park Village

    You might try one of the moonlighting websites. The only one I can remember right now is:

    gomnlt.com

    I'm sure if you did a search for moonlighting jobs, you'd find them.

Gunshots in Humboldt Park

Last night was startled awake by a gunshot near the corner of Wabansia and Kimball. Then heard a fight outside. Not sure if they were related. Stay safe out there friends!

Hi all, hope it's kosher to post here about searching for apartments. Read about it on some other forums and was suggested to ask for insight here.

I'm new to Chicago but have visited for work 20-30 times over the past 2 years. Mainly stayed in the Loop so I'm choosing Bucktown / Wicker Park based on word of mouth and advice from others. I'm 24, young professional, consultant, female.

Basically I'm looking for any tips / insight for the search - locations to avoid, best ways to search, etc. I've contacted a few locators in addition to searching on my own. My move-in date is any time after August 10. I'll be there August 10 - 13 with the intention of viewing an applying for places (and hopefully signing a lease).

Thanks in advance!

  • No worries Bger ... My comment was more so to show that there are other great areas adjacent to WP/Bucktown that are MUCH more affordable (I'm 7 blocks from Bucktown and own a house ... A WHOLE HOUSE ... that costs less than to rent a jr 1 br .5 miles away ;)

  • Joe

    Logan Square is west of western and certainly is desirable in many ways. Worthy of checking out.

Recommendations for non-surgical skin doctor for face

Neighbors: Looking for recommendations for places and/or doctors to treat a few sunspots on my face. I would like non-surgical procedures and little to no down-time after the procedure. Having a hard time finding someone! Would prefer a personal recommendation vs reading reviews online. Thanks in advance for your help.

anywhere within city limits is good, will travel for a good doctor!

  • I second Dr Neha Robinson at Dermatology & Aesthetics. She is wonderful.

  • AMG

    @mkbjazz and Marcy - thank you for the recommendation,

    @Holly - thank you.

Speed Humps by the Map Room

I noticed speed humps being installed on Hoyne south of Armitage by the Map Room. Speed humps can cause reckless drivers to lose control of their vehicles and create more dangerous situations. Wouldn't it be better to drop the speed limit to 20mph, set up a speed camera, and ticket at 25mph? Speeding there would plummet immediately via economics.

  • Another solution, albeit perhaps wildly unpopular, would be to turn Hoyne into a one way street northbound. Locals would enter the neighborhood from Armitage by using the southbound one way Leavitt (which has a stop light.) Cars in transit south on Hoyne to avoid heavy traffic on Damen will be SOL.

  • they don't even fill potholes without a complaint from residents... you think CDOT added speed bumps to one random residential street one their own?
