Possible revenue stream for Chicago?

At 5:30 a.m. cars on Lake Shore Drive travel at an average of about 65 MPH, and some are going 80 MPH. I believe the speed limit is 40 MPH to protect the roads, so why not install speed cameras to enforce the limit? Or if the high rate of speed isn’t bad for the roads, raise the speed limit so it isn’t so much of a joke.

    I cut to the chase for you!
    Red light cameras would not improve safety on LSD instead it would increase rear end collisions.
    This is why we have studies. In the hopes that people bother reading them before posting uniformed opinions.

Old-school Lincoln Park row house with historical details lists for $1M

2048 N. Dayton Street, Chicago IL [Estately]

    Charmingly old-school Lincoln Park row house wants $1M
    Offering the kind of character and old-school details that more expensive neighboring new constructions can only dream about, this charming 19th century Lincoln Park row house is perhaps the anti-McMansion. Featuring a long, almost shotgun-like layout, the structure dates back to 1890 and features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a bright and attractive second floor library.

Lead levels in the water in Lincoln Park

Hello, my husband saw a City of Chicago employee on Bissell Street today. The City of Chicago employee said he was testing the water for lead because it had shown high levels. Is this common knowledge in Lincoln Park? Should we not be drinking the water?

    Oddly, the city was doing some work on Fullerton (near Racine) over the summer and shortly after that work, my water pressure fluctuated greatly and my water turned a brownish color. I contacted the city and my alderman's office several times but was never able to get a straightforward answer. The water eventually turned back to a normal color, but again no answers. I did have my water tested by the city. They confirmed there was no bacteria, but never got back to me regarding the metal test. I've attempted to contact them several times. Needless to say, this hasn't left me confident.

Whatever it is, restaurants are in the business of helping you forget your troubles and fears. It's been that way for all time. You wouldn't tear into your fresh kill with the wolves behind your back, would you?

Looking for referral for someone to seal vent from kitchen hood on the outside

It is currently sealed with expandable foam and I want a more permanent solution. The vent is located about four stories up on a five story condo building, the building has concrete block on the side.
