    Lieutenant John Garrido drove by it every day. The shingles were coming off the roof. The wood was rotting. That the shack continued to stand at all was something of a miracle. Most of the neighborhood didn’t notice the dilapidated structure at all – when things are seemingly beyond repair, they’re often ignored, forgotten. The shack was out in the open on the corner of a busy street, yet invisible. But for 15 years, every day on his way to work, Garrido noticed. As a 27-year veteran Chicago cop who came from a law enforcement family dedicated to serving the Windy City, Garrido took great pride in his home, particularly his neighborhood of Gladstone Park. He knew something needed to be done.

    Garrido opened the piece of plywood that served as the shack’s front door. Among the dirt and trash was a surprising discovery: a stack of recent Sunday newspapers. A return visit the following Sunday revealed what the space truly was – a newsstand. Standing inside was 60-year-old Anthony Johnson."

    It's a subscription service, so you have to order on a regular basis.

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    I received my first box this week. I forgot to pick my items, but was not disappointed at all!! The quality was fantastic. We are getting a small fruit and vegetable box every other week, but may change to every week. With the delivery charge, I think I paid around $10: celery, carrots, onions, red potatoes, spaghetti squash, lemons and oranges, the most beautiful head of red cabbage I've ever seen. All organic.

Has anyone seen this cat?

I am looking for my cat, Male, black and white, last seen around Rutherford and Strong in the beginning of November.

  • I see a bunch of cats in the alley at night. I'll try to get a picture.

  • The cat was going in yards on the Natchez side, 2nd or 3 rd house closer to
    5400 Street. Good luck, hope you find him soon

Cozy Corner on Harlem?

Any information out there as to what is going on with this place? Seems to be stuck in limbo.

  • A recent comment elsewhere on EveryBlock indicated that Cozy's website said it was opening in February.

2 questions

Hi Neighbors
I was wondering if anyone knows when Cozy Restuarant will open on Harlem at the location where Sally's use to be -seems like they have been working on for about a hear -you would think there would be not much of a transition ?
Second -there is a plot of land next to Marriott on Higgins that looks like there tore down entire building -are they rebuilding something there or perhaps trying to add on to Marriott? Live in the area and want to keep up with what's going on in the hood.
Thanks for any info you can provide.

  • See DNAinfo article dated 12/8/16 titled "299 Luxury Micro Apartments Proposed next to Cumberland Marriott".

    Thanks again -Cindy -read 12/8/16 article-and thanks everyone for all information !
