Dollar Tree Coming To Former Unique Thrift Store Location?

You may have noticed that beige paint with green trim has replaced the mud-brown exterior at the former Unique Thrift Store (Sheridan and Sunnyside), which closed without notice nearly a year and a half ago.

    Have I come to the right place to troll informational media mentions? Apparently so.

In regards to "the incident"

Uptown EB has been hijacked by people with an axe to grind against me. That is unfair to the greater readership who may or may not care. Of those who care, who are fair, deserve some explanation.

Until it is resolved there is little I can say. But when it is resolved I will release on the Sheridan Park Neighbors Page and other media outlets every detail. I will share every tape, every transcript...everything.

Uptown EB has been hijacked by people with an axe to grind against me. That is unfair to the greater readership who may or may not care. Of those who care, who are fair, deserve some explanation.

Until it is resolved there is little I can say. But when it is resolved I will release on the Sheridan Park Neighbors Page and other media outlets every detail. I will share every tape, every transcript...everything.

You will see then and only then. I embarrassed the Alderman. Yes I did. An argument could be made that it wasn't me who embarrassed the Alderman (Cappleman of course) but the Alderman himself for attacking Starbucks. The absurdity has not been lost on many so it seems. Whose fault is that?

But tell that to James Cappleman, his husband Richard Thale, and his excitable "team", I was harrassed on the street.

All the facts will be shared, by me in due time, I promise. You will see then what happened. In the meantime trolls are going to troll, to spin, the more they spin the more vindicated I will be. I have a perfectly clean record for a reason, I am peaceful, I am the peace garden artist, your artist Uptown.

In the meantime I cannot apologize for the incessant trolling its beyond my control these are adults, if it bothers you just report it, its all that can be done. I have been bullied in Uptown before, I was a skinny kid it happened all the time, I have been attacked, stabbed, shot at, beat up, I can handle it.

I am proud to have started the petition, to have given the people a voice to show love and support for the employees of Starbucks, my friends, our neighbors. I am proud of the people of the Uptown, well most of them. Thank you for the messages of love and support.

All will be shared. With Love,

Jeffrey Littleton

We Support Our Uptown Starbucks on Broadway

Please read and sign if you agree. Starbucks and their employees deserve better in the wake of that terrible crime they had no part of. The completely unsubstantiated claims of "tolerating crime" are beyond the pale and unprecedented.

At the time of this posting approx. 670 of your neighbors have signed, read the comments made by actual patrons in their own name, in their own words.

Most of the employees of this Starbucks live in Uptown and are a solid part of our community, they need to be supported and shown love in the wake of a traumatic incident, not scapegoated. The petion will be delivered to the Alderman.

Thank You.

Neighborly Litigation (Chadha v. NPES)

Many on this forum talk about litigating, be it for some unneighborly thing or other. Well, here is your chance to read the behind the scenes workings of the Chicago Way in its entirety (link below - get some popcorn and settle in) and VOTE.

This is the culmination of 7 years of attorney fees and a waste of our taxpayer-funded court's time/resources, in my opinion, of course.

Christ he's not even smart enough to shut the hell up before his hearing is he?

Seeking parking space

Hello neighbors, does anyone know how I can find out about parking spaces available for rent in the Margare Terrace section of Uptown? I live on Carmen and it's particularly hard to find street parking. I would be willing to pay someone to rent their spot.

  • Typo....meant Margate Terrace

  • Jeffrey Littleton 3rd Generation Uptown

    I believe the surface lot just west of Sheridan on Southside of Foster leases parking. It's close, but not technically Margate Park.
