Internet service advice

Hi. I'm moving to W Hood and the building doesn't supply the internet like my last place did. I had hi point with my last apartment that was included in the rent. Any suggestions for internet service? I don't need tv or phone just internet, and I'm not a gamer, I just work at home and watch some netflix at times.

Thanks!

  • go with rcn, comcrap has hidden data caps, they will cut your internet off periodically with no notice and claim nothing is wrong.

A Facelift For Aldi

Upcoming entrance to Aldi directly on the corner of Broadway & Sunnyside

    A Facelift For Aldi
    Ald. Cappleman just released the plans for the upcoming remodeling of Aldi at 4500 N. Broadway in his latest newsletter. Work is expected to begin later this month. Expect to see an updated exterior that reflects the latest Aldi branding and interior design.
    https://www.uptownupdate.com

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    Simply delicious. The Aldi brand cereals are just as good as the name brand too, about half the price.

  • They are as good and I am often amused by the products that they introduce each week - those for kids make me smile, but I don't know any little kids. Well, it saves my $$$.

    I visit the one on Clybourn under Trader Joe's (the best fresh cut flower deals around), but usually the one over by Tarzhay at B-way and sometimes even farther up Clybourn when I need something from Menard's....or Marshall's...or the big HomeGoods at Logan/Elston.

Resignation from volunteer HOA board.

Hi,

I am currently the president of our volunteer HOA board in my building. I was volunteered for the position and I no longer am interested in acting as board president. From what I am reading, I have absolutely not obligation to continue as a board member as long as I formally resign.

Does anyone have any experience with this? ANY information is helpful. Thanks!

  • mj

    Yes, your bylaws probably stipulate what steps are required to resign, or you could wait until your term ends.

  • Jeff Photographer

    I simply announced my resignation as a HOA board member when I had had enough of repeated disrespectful behavior, rude comments and bullying tactics by our board president and her cronies.

New to Edgewater and Chicago

Hi Neighbors,

I just moved here, was wondering if anyone had suggestions of good places/groups in the area to meet people. I work till around 7 in the evening and have to come home a walk the dog, so it limits my time span to meet new people.

  • Maggie...I go to Edgewater Fitness. It's a good neighborhood place. All the employees are really friendly & helpful. Also, I like that it's very diverse and there are people there in all ranges of fitness levels. The manager's name is Chris. If interested, go in and speak to him. He's a great guy.

looking for monthly parking rental

I live near Swift Elementary, and I'm looking for a monthly, long-term rental parking spot. I've already checked out the usual websites (spothero, parqex, craigslist, etc.). Any information about available spots would be greatly appreciated.

  • Except for walking past it often, I don't know much about it, but there is a fenced parking lot on the corner of Winthrop and Glenlake, one block from Swift. There is a telephone number on the gate.

  • Mark H home skooled

    Thanks for the heads up, Larry. I do have that number, but I haven't called it yet. I was hoping to find something a little closer because I'm just that lazy. :-P

Newly constructed copper cornice meets the 109 year old cornice

    The Stewart School Lofts are nearing completion as new residents move into the unique floorplans to enjoy amenities like a gorgeous rooftop deck with beautiful views of the city. Outside, Morningside Development has been hard at work with tuckpointing, installing a new roof and repairing the copper cornice that was sagging in sections and in danger of falling completely off.

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    It's not a rent crash or anything, more of a levelin' out, probably a mix of over-building, a slightly declining population, condo deconversion...other factors....?

    It is better for the tenants no doubts.

  • I think they've done a great job. And the location is perfect. Granted, there are probably a tiny handful of 'activists' who'd rather see tents and Helen murals here. Fantastic use of this great building I think!

Moving within Edgewater area, CTA station question

Hi. Right now i have a studio close to Broadway and on Granville. I need a 1 bedroom and saw one on Granville but I'm looking for Aug 1st and they have to rent July 1st so it may be rented by the time i can move in. I saw another 1 bedroom on Bryn Mawr a little further from the Bryn Mawr CTA and half way towards Clark St.

How does the Bryn Mawr area compare to Granville? I will be traveling in the evenings. Also how do the neighborhoods compare?

I love the stores and accessibility around Granville!

Thanks!

  • Thank you for all the information and positive comments! Looking forward to my move!

  • headsup not available

    Granville is a great place to live - you will enjoy the new buildings when they are finished - and the new restaurants are in place - you will see the art scene continues to grow. Granville is a growing street - Bryn Mawr ?? Granville is close to transportation and the lake - another plus is Granville is part of Edgewater - the place to live, work, and play. Granville and "Hip" come together.

Violence in Edgewater

Hey neighbors I just wanted to clue everyone in to what happened on Thursday night/ Friday morning on Kenmore Avenue between Foster and Berwyn. There was an attempted and fortunately unsuccessful drive by sometime between 9-11 pm on our block with multiple shots fired. The suspect who was a member of the Latin Kings was apprehended in the same location the following morning between 8-9 am as he returned to try to finish the job. He was armed at the time of the arrest. I wanted to post about it as a reminder to keep your head on a swivel and that we as neighbors have to look out for eachother.
