Copper Cornice Comeback

Newly constructed copper cornice meets the 109 year old cornice

    Copper Cornice Comeback
    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!

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.

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

    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.

Excessive Heat Warning Today Through Monday Night

It's gonna be crazy hot and humid through Monday night, with little relief after the sun sets. WGN says that "Conditions similar to the 1995 deadly heat wave could evolve." This is serious stuff. So we urge you to not only be careful for yourself, but for your pets and most vulnerable neighbors.
