  • 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!

Where are the yard sales?

Hi there Uptown just wondering is your neighborhood having yard or community sales? Esp. looking for Condo sales.

  • Check online for block clubs in the area, then check their activities. Margate Park's is actually the Carmen Winona Block Club and it used to be in June. Selling takes place along Winona and Carmen. There's a fee to participate. Send an email to carmenwinonabc@gmail.com to inquire.

    The sale I was thinking of is between Sheridan and Marine Drive. A lot of quirky sale items.

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.

  • You are absolutely correct !! Thanks for keeping everyone informed.

    It should be the biggest thing since Popeyes closed...bigger than Harold's since they also closed down.

    Or the Chicken Place on Clark that lasted less than a year, or the Jamaican Jerk chicken that also closed after getting their windows shot out then robbed 2 days later.

    Or Chester's that lasted a matter of months a block away.

    Hopes and prayers for the chicken joints of Uptown?

Annual Literary Festival at Printer's Row.

This weekend the Chicago Tribune hosts the annual Literary Festival at Printer's Row, with author interviews at Jones College Prep in the auditorium. One of the authors speaking will be Erik Beckman. His recent book "Us Against You" offers a quote that is (I believe) pertinent to so much nowadays. "He learns that people will always choose a simple lie over a complicated truth because the lie has one unbeatable advantage....the truth always has to stick to what actually happened, whereas the lie just has to be easy to believe." I'll be at his event.

Go to the Lit Fest. It's worth the visit (Sat. and Sun. 10 AM - 6 PM). See: https://printersrowlitfest.org/
