BOOKS

Does any organization or individual take books as a donation anymore? or should they just be thrown in the recycle bin for garbage collection?

  • I second the idea of OpenBooks. They sell the books in their bookstores and online. Any money they make goes to support their literacy programs for kids. It is a worthy cause and organization.

Ravenswood and Irving Park

Hi all, the police and fire department just shut down Ravenswood north of Irving Park Rd (9:15pm Tuesday 11/14) anyone know why?

  • There was a fire in the uniform company in the 4100 block of Ravenswood.

  • I left 4043 Ravenswood at around 10 and saw four ambulances, two fire trucks, and the police car blocking Ravenswood at Irving. Its odd that something calling for that kind of response wasn't covered in the media.

COYOTE

Holy Sh*t, I'm standing last night on my porch around 10:45pm having my drinks before heading downtown to Gibson's, and this huge animal which I later learn to be a coyote, zipped at 100mph past my house east on Hutchinson.
Unreal.

    Own this bright condo with Lake Michigan views for $279K
    It's said that the only guaranteed views in Chicago are eastern exposures along Lake Shore Drive. As a result, these kinds of premium properties typically command equally premium prices. This, however, does not appear to be the case with this recently listed two-bedroom, two-bathroom Lakeview residence overlooking Belmont Harbor and Lake Michigan.

Be careful out there today - streets and sidewalks glaze ice

I just returned from being out. I was east of Ashland Ave. at about Fullerton. The side streets and sidewalks are glaze ice. Cars are fishtailing and skidding trying to stop. I tried to stop at one intersection and forget it --- my car just kept going and stopped about the middle of the intersection. It was that way all the way until Western, where it's not so bad, but is still wet and looks icy in places.

Bicyclists are having a very hard time of it. They skid if they try to slow down or stop, and then when they put their foot down they slip.

So far the main streets are just slushy and are safer.

    oh man, thanks for the heads up Beeb! I am one who hates driving in the snow, yes i've lived here all my life but i still cannot do it lol. I shall be driving super slow this evening. Stay safe!

CHICAGO - Residents of Chicago's Uptown neighborhood should be on guard after reports of three separate muggings that occurred in just 15 minutes Wednesday night.
The first robbery happened around 7:30 p.m. near West Buena and North Clarendon avenues. The victim said four males attacked him and ran east, toward Marine Drive.
Right after that, another man was reportedly beaten up and robbed in the 700-block of West Bittersweet Place.
Minutes later, the group reportedly beat a 50-year-old man to the ground, but he was not robbed. The attackers ran north on Clarendon. The victim was treated at a hospital.
There is surveillance video of one of the violent attacks. The robbers appear to be between 15-18 years old.
I have been in contact with the investigating officers of these incidents.
As I have recording cameras surrounding my estate on Hutchinson and Clarendon,
I will check to see if there is anything that can be helpful to police. I have reported this information to the police.

  • TS

    Thank you for getting involved and being vigilant. I'm not sure why this keeps happening, almost daily, but we see very little police presence in the area.

  • Thanks for your vigilance. My friend and his pregnant wife have a condo in that exact area, and I do worry about their safety going to/fro work, especially since it gets darker outside earlier.

  • Mute Mute Me

    " I'm not sure why this keeps happening"

    what has changed that would stop it from happening?

    "My friend and his pregnant wife have a condo in that exact area, and I do worry about their safety"

    im not sure if a pregnant woman would be seen as an easy target or just the opposite since if caught there are added charges.

    why would anyone want to raise children in that area? Hopefully they dont plan to stay long!

What happened to the big Jewish delis in Chicago?

Other notable new Jewish-style delis include Milt's Extra Innings, part of the Milt's Barbecue for the Perplexed family, which just opened in Wrigleyville at 3409 N. Broadway; and Half Sour in the South Loop, also expected by late November.

The most legendary of the neighborhood's delis was Eli's Stage Delicatessen, opened in 1962 at 50 E. Oak St., counting among its customers Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Woody Allen and countless stars of stage, screen and politics too. It closed in 1968.

The space was replaced by the Oak Street Restaurant and Bakery, still open and serving corned beef sandwiches, but no longer matzo ball soup.

"I tried in Streeterville and failed," said Max and Benny's founder and President Lester Schlan. In 2006 Schlan had opened a second location at 322 E. Illinois St. but closed after only six months.

Steingold's of Chicago opened in late August in North Center, at 1840 W. Irving Park Road, as Chicago's newest contemporary Jewish deli, or a "newish deli," as it and others of a new generation here and elsewhere are hashtagged on Instagram.

If that sounds ambitious, Steingold recently revealed they're already opening a second location to meet demand. The smaller, walk-up-only Steingold's Station plans to open later this month in Ravenswood Manor, adjacent to the Francisco Brown Line stop at 4642 N. Francisco Ave.

  • Please notice that "Mute" is just using kosher butcher methods as an excuse to espouse some really hateful antisemitic views that have nothing to do with kosher meat and everything to do with her being a very nasty and hateful bigot.

    "The Jewish way of preparing meat offends you,"

    I see no reason jews can't stun an animal to render them unconscious before slitting there throats. I'm open to hearing logical reasons for this. But have yet to hear one.

    "but apparently not modern commercial meatpacking"

    Never said that.

    The anti-Hate signs offend you.

    Never said that.

Injured goose

Does anyone know who to contact about a goose at belmont harbor missing a foot. It seems to be cast out of the group of geese all by itself.

I saw this yesterday but today saw just one in the water honking like it was in distress maybe the same one? Isnt it unusual for them to be aline?

  • @mute, try calling the alderman, when I needed help with rescuing the injured goose I contacted Tim Cullerton and he worked with me (through a series of emails) till it got helped, the dawn information I got, I got from him. he followed up with her to make sure the goose was taken care of.

Update on the Garbage pickups

All, when the garbage cans overflowed on Pine Grove/Sheridan/Marine Drive earlier this year, I wrote the aldermen and Streets and San. I got a lovely letter from Str & San:
"My office received a copy of your recent letter...Thank you for taing the time to report your concerns....the 46th Ward superintendent reported that the baskets at these locations will be serviced regularly.... and more frequently."

    Does the ssa fund these?
