Founder of Crate & Barrel says goodbye to the Michigan Avenue flagship store he built

Crate & Barrel remains a strong brand, with stores all over the world, but Michigan Avenue increasingly draws tourists who aren’t shopping for dining tables and sofa beds. People who are can go to the giant Crate & Barrel nearby at North and Clybourn avenues, where parking is free.

On the corner of North Michigan Avenue and Erie Street, he recalled, sat an old terra cotta building, with small windows, that housed medical offices. He bought it, envisioning something radically different.

People shop at the Crate & Barrel store in the 600 block of North Michigan Avenue on Jan. 18, 2018, in Chicago. The location is closing after 27 years .

    Founder of Crate & Barrel says goodbye to the Michigan Avenue flagship store he built
    Two dining tables remained, and two stuffed sofas, a popcorn maker, a couple of stools, two rows of mismatched chairs, everything on deep discount. Gone were the shelves of white porcelain dinner plates and the parades of polished wine glasses, all that impeccably displayed tableware that once twinkled at shoppers with the promise of a bountiful dinner with lively guests in a lovely home.

Chris Kennedy got it right: people of color are being pushed out of Chicago intentionally

Want to get specific? Let's go back to the area around North and Clybourn. In 1981, it was dominated by Cabrini-Green, a public housing project with roughly 30,000 low- income residents, most of them black.

But wait, there's more. To the west of Halsted and Division is an old industrial area that's one of the hottest real estate markets in...

When I moved to Chicago in 1981, the community around the intersection of Clybourn and Division on the north side was overwhelmingly poor and African-American. Now, of course, it's one of the richest and whitest corners of town.

    Chicago Police Officer Therese Puchalski called it a "Wow!" moment. She and Officer Lucyna Murawski were working overtime at the CTA's Roosevelt Road station on the Red Line shortly before 7:30 a.m. Nov. 1 when they were notified by a CTA employee that a woman was going into labor.

Craft beer, retail, finance among industry that will benefit from new tax law

A worker pours a glass of Wari on Nov. 8 at Off Color Brewing's The Mousetrap taproom, 1460 N. Kingsbury St. Craft brewers are among the industries that stand to benefit from the new tax law President Donald Trump signed Friday.

    Craft beer, retail, finance among industry that will benefit from new tax law
    Craft breweries are raising a glass to the Republicans' new tax overhaul: It cuts the excise tax on beer. Retailers, long saddled with heavy tax bills, will get relief. So will some high-profile names in corporate finance, led by Wells Fargo.

Calling on Chicago to provide 2200K PC AMBER LED Streetlight Test Block

Chicago is in the process, like many cities around the world, of replacing our streetlights with blue-rich white LED's (BRWL's). At 3000K these lights are at the absolute highest end of what the AMA has deemed safe. Blue spectrum light at night (270,000 streetlights in Chicago) will affect the health and circadian rhythms of people, plants and animals by creating 24 hours of daylight.

Chicago is in the process, like many cities around the world, of replacing our streetlights with blue-rich white LED's (BRWL's). At 3000K these lights are at the absolute highest end of what the AMA has deemed safe. Blue spectrum light at night (270,000 streetlights in Chicago) will affect the health and circadian rhythms of people, plants and animals by creating 24 hours of daylight. IMHO, these lights are not only unsafe they are ugly and painful to look at, just like the new LED headlights...too bright and too glaring. They will make our city look like the frozen food aisle at Aldi, or at best, a Night Game. Chicago owes it to its tax payers, who will shell out $700 per light, to at least set up one test street with 2200K PC Amber LED's. If you would like to see such a test street, please let your Aldermen know. This is a four year roll out and changes can be made before it’s too late. If you would like to view or join our FB Group, please feel welcome. Thank you.

    PS: I'm visiting out of town for the holidays and this same issue and ire over the nasty bright blue lights came up (completely unsolicited by me). People far and wide dislike these things for aesthetic reasons, if nothing else!
