Chicago Neighborhoods that Are Straight-Up Fake

While we’re at it: those upscale high rises south of North Avenue at Clybourn—“SoNo East”? Not real, either.​

    Chicago Neighborhoods that Are Straight-Up Fake
    Chicagoans call their town a "city of neighborhoods" like other places don't have them. At times, we take such pride in residing within the city limits that our enclaves become a part of our identities. We're not just Chicagoans; we're Rogers Parkers, Logan Squarers, Garfield Parkers.

Does Michelle Smith ever respond to anything?

I’ve emailed her twice about issues in my ward and received zero response. Even after I’ve followed up. Does anybody else have this experience? I thought this was the whole point of an alderman.

  • Nick, that's the same email address I've always used. There is always an immediate response but never follow up. I have also called several times and been told I would be called back and that never happened. I get that there's lots of big stuff going on in our ward and Michele may be busy with those, but her staff needs to be able to handle these ordinary day-to-day issues and has not.

  • She almost lost the last election by not being true to her ward of property owners. Won by only 35 votes and they were in senior centers. So don’t forget to canvas the many senior housing facilities we have in the ward. Also you can talk to her in person, She’ll smile and nod her head and that’s the most action you’ll get from your conversation. She’s as phony as they come.

Review: Steppenwolf’s Lightweight The Roommate Aims for Laughs Over Depth

The Roommate is now playing at Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted, through August 5. Tickets run $30-$55 and are available online here.

    Review: Steppenwolf's Lightweight The Roommate Aims for Laughs Over Depth - Third Coast Review
    Search the Chicago theater listings far and wide this summer and you will find very few productions with two 50-something women at the center of the production, if any (and no, Cher doesn't count). Steppenwolf Theatre's The Roommate, a new play by Jen Silverman under Phylicia Rashad's direction, on through August 5, not only features these...

    10 cereal dishes that take childhood favorites out of the breakfast bowl
    There aren't many meals more nostalgic than a bowl of cereal. Whether you prefer the first still crunchy bite or slurping down the leftover sugary milk, a meal of Fruity Pebbles, Cap'n Crunch or (in the healthier families) Cheerios brings back memories of Saturday morning cartoons and lazy Sundays without a care in the world.

Fireworks at James Otis park this year?

Just moved to neighborhood and heard that the park at James Otis does awesome fireworks every year... Anyone know if they will be on display this 4th of July again?

  • Hi, Alexandra. We've been here 15 years, and they've been done every 4th. They stage them in the faculty parking lot at Otis. Many people line the sidewalks on Grand Ave. with chairs to watch. But you can view from the entire immediate area. They do 3-4 displays, I believe. Just a heads up. it's VERY loud since it's in a residential area. and smoky of you're downwind. Have fun!

  • Thank you! We literally live across the street, so will give our guests on the 4th a heads up as we watch from our roof deck💥💥💥💥
