FOUND @ 41st & Drexel

"We found a very sweet dog today in our neighborhood (found at 41st and Drexel). She was found in between two houses, barking out in the cold all day. She has no identification. We brought her to MedVet (24 hour vet) and found out that she has no microchip, and recently had puppies. We think she may have been abandoned, but we are hoping to see if we can spread the message far and wide in the case that someone is looking for her. Please share - especially South Side folks!" ~ Neil Maude 12/29/17

Thinking about Moving to 60616

Hi friends...we are thinking about moving from over the river to south of the river....seems like a great - upcoming area. A new Marriott Marquis just went up, a Hilton is in process - and I hope that a grocery, walgreens, etc. are on their way.

Any hints or pointers those of you who live in the area can offer. We don't have a car....so, public transit, walking are our primary modes of getting around....

  • Judy Happy Chicago Resident!

    Hi New Neighbors...thank you for all of your feedback over this last month - we are moving to 60616 - renting at Cermak and Michigan. It is still a developing area - so, shopping and services won't be out my back door as they are in Streeterville. Without a car, I just have to plan better.

    New Question....what ward are we in? I have seen reference to Ward 3and Ward 4 And are there community/civic activities that I can get involved in?
