Yesterday's death at the Bryn Mawr Red Line stop?

Hi, neighbors -- I'm just curious if any of you know more details about the man who was hit by the train and died yesterday. The Sun Times names him as "52-year-old James Dillen" -- but that's it. https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/red-purple-line-trains-shut-down-person-removed-from-tracks-at-bryn-mawr/ Does anyone know any more about the circumstances, or about Mr. Dillen?

Thanks,
Michael

    52-year-old man fatally struck by CTA train at Bryn Mawr
    Normal service resumed on the CTA Red and Purple lines about two hours after a person jumped in front of a train Friday morning in the North Side Edgewater neighborhood, according to police. The man jumped in front of the train just after 7 a.m.

  • Mute Truth is not determined by majority vote

    I just feel like the word troubled has negative connotations attatched to it. We never say a person who suffers from a physical illness is troubled. Troubled is usually attatched to people with mental issues not physical.you know people who have behavioral issues are often labeled as troubled. Behavioral issues are generally due to mental health issues. Its a controversial subject.

  • ok, nitpick the word. but i am a hospice volunteer and i hear similar sentiment all the time.

    Many a warm summer night was spent there with a burger and a beer...or two..or three...

    One of the reasons Moody's beer garden became so popular was that it was all-ages: you could bring the family and eat outside. Also, the bar indoors was very dark--and, before anti-smoking ordinances were enacted--smoky as hell. So the outdoors became a refuge from smokers too--people still smoked outside, but they could wave the smoke away. (And you & they could see each other and move to a different table).

    I never knew any other Moody's but the one on B'way. I know it's not the end of an era, but it's always sad when a person who established something beloved passes away. May his memory be for a blessing,

Any News on New Andersonville Restaurants?

Anyone have updates/insight on when our new Andersonville restaurants are opening?
Hutch opened pretty quickly and we've already had a tasty dinner there!

Eagerly awating:
Octavio (old Acre/Ombra)
Furious Spoon (old Johnny Brown Bag)
Greek Place (old Sunshine Cafe)
Bakery (old Goddess and Baker)

And any news on possibilities for the spaces that were Brixton (I miss their steak tartare and chicken pate!) and Adriatica?

Loud Long Horn around Bryn Mawr and Clark 7 a.m. this morning?

around 7 a.m. a super loud long horn went off twice. It sounded like it was in my head it was so loud. So Loud I thought maybe my car in the garage was losing its mind so I went down to check.

I could not figure out the source. Anyone have a clue?

  • There was a Trash truck laying the horn on for some reason. I drove past the truck and was as confused as you are.

    Depends on what part of Edgewater. East of B'way, parking is difficult because of so many apt. bldgs with so few garage spaces. West has more single-family homes and 2-flats with garages, so on-street parking's easier to find. I live less than 1/4 mi. from a Red Line station, and it has almost never taken me more than 45 minutes, even in rush hour, to get as far south as Jackson St. (Track problems & the like can happen on any line). Ubers & Lyfts are plentiful; and many of the city's taxi drivers live here--easy to flag down a cab on B'way.

    I grew up in NYC, and to get from Queens to Brooklyn on the subway, you had to go through Manhattan. (My husband's commute to college--no dorms at CUNY schools--was 2.5 hrs. each way every day). The NYC subway system is deteriorating due to budget cuts. I lived in Seattle, and drove to law school in south Tacoma-->1 hr. each way). Be glad you don't live in DuPage or Kane County and commute into the Loop. And don't even ask about Los Angeles or the Miami-W. Palm I-95 corridor.

    We Chicagoans don't realize how lucky we are when it comes to commuting from a residential 'hood to downtown.

Empty commercial spaces 1200-1400 Devon Ave

I moved just south of Devon Ave off N Wayne Ave a couple of years ago and have noticed that many of the commercial spaces on Devon Ave in my area remain vacant in both older and newer constructed buildings, leading the drag to have a certain gloominess. Does anyone know why this is? Are there just one or two landlords responsible that hold these spaces?

Swedish Covenant Hospital rents space in Swedish Bakery building

I'm glad that one of the many empty retail spots is being rent in Andersonville (seriously, I will say this again, the stretch of Clark Street is looking bleak), but I can't say I'm thrilled both personally and for the neighborhood that the best use for the old Swedish Bakery space is a Swedish Covenant doctor's office. Probably won't boost foot traffic much, and won't likely help neighboring businesses. Bottom line is that it's boring. Very boring.

  • Mute Truth is not determined by majority vote

    Yea i seem to remember when i lived at wilson and seeley i saw the tax bill for the building and it said lakeview. Having neighborhoods inside of neighborhoods is a bit confusing to me. Such as ravenswood which is a part of lincoln square etc. Why do we need all these neighborhood labels?

    I like the discussion style here. We start down one topic and end up with a completely different one. How about we agree that Andersonville is no more than a state of mind? And that this criminal selected a neighborhood with a poor clearance rate. Like the bank robber, Willy Sutton said: I could rob a bank in Andersonville with one hand because no one will catch me. That, and there are a lot of good coffee shops around.

Any idea when the water will be back on at Granville Beach?

Went to get my mail around noon and there was a literal waterfall coming out of the ceiling in the lobby. The picture doesn't show the true niagra falls of water that was flowing.

  • It was freezing and we bought this window seal kit from Lowe’s, which did wonders...and a space heater. Most of the cold came through the Ac vents and a lot came in through the windows, I think cause they’re old.

  • Yeah we covered up all our air conditioning vents with thick plastic. I just carry a space heater at this point from room to room. I will definitely try the window seal kit! And my water is back on but it is brown so I will let it run for awhile. Thank you for the great tips! xLaura

Airplane Noise During Fly Quiet Hours: Are we Still Reporting It ?

So tired, two nights in a row woken up at 4:08 and kept awake til after 5 by loud jets flying over - same volume as during the past two days. I understand the new flight pattern trials are going on but this is too much ! Previous two days it was 11:30 to 12:30 am and starting up at 5 am. Hard to guess when to turn my sound generating machine on as we recently had 4 am theft in area ,don't want to be unaware. Are we still supposed to be reporting jet noise thesame

  • Yes, please do report it. Fly Quiet provisions are not mandates for air traffic, just suggestions. We need to make it clear that the runway rotation and Fly Quiet as it stands are not enough to mitigate noise.

  • Thank you for posting about this, Alice. The same thing happened to me and unfortunately I just cannot sleep with anything that blocks out normal sound. I'm an early riser but 4 AM is too early.

  • Report at www.chicagonoisecomplaint.com or call 311. . Heading toward 5 million noise complaints in 2017. let each of your elected officials know they need to work on controlling the O'Hare aircraft noise and air pollution problem.

Panhandles

There’s to many Panhandles on the Bryn Mawr strip !! And I know they’re not homeless !

    I figure that it's their karma, not mine, if a 'panhandlers' doesn't genuinely need the money. Any reason that compels someone to stand outside for hours in all weather asking for money suggests they have a problem - whether it's financial, mental disorder, or even lack of character. In any of those scenarios, the person is troubled.

    I would also caution that just because someone is not homeless, it doesn't mean they're not in desperate financial trouble. Maybe they need the proceeds from psnhadling to help pay their rent.

    The one panhandler I really wonder about is the guy on southeast corner of Ridge and Clark. He seems to be there every day. Anyone know his story?

  • Don

    Month after month year after year they panhandle for rent. Seriously

The Philadelphia Church question on N. Clark

Hi Andersonville. There's a church at 5437 N. Clark, next door there looks like a thrift shop but I never see it open. Would anyone know if there is a next door thrift store and what the hours are? (BTW, the church never replies to questions)
