Neighborhood news about Chicago suburbs

Hello,

I'd like to learn more about Chicago's near suburbs, but EveryBlock seems to only cover Evanston. Is there an active message board similar to EveryBlock that covers suburbs like Skokie, Glenview, and Des Plaines?

Thanks!

  • Catherine NO!

    As silly as it sounds, I'm not sure of the names of the suburbs. I have a lot more Googling to do. At this very early stage, I see different names on Google maps for the same area and I'm not sure why. (Do suburbs have neighborhoods? Do villages exist within cities or are they completely separate entities?)

    I'm not familiar with any suburb besides Skokie and Evanston, because those are the two that the CTA train line goes to.

ISO: Houseplants and grow lights

Hello,

I'm a houseplant hobby grower and could use more plant grow lights. These can include LEDs, florescent tube lights, workshop lights, aquarium lights, etc. If you have items you don't need, please let me know!

I could also use plant propagation plug trays. This sometimes comes with seed starting kits.

I mainly grow succulents/cacti, orchids, and tillandsia. I'm open to trades.

Thanks!

NOT Hanson Roofing

They were repairing and replacing the tiles on the historic two-flat next door without regard for throwing the broken tiles, rubbish, and materials into our yard - a tile hit our window air conditioner and the "supervisor" said that it was NOT their problem and to call the police. After FOUR broken windows from the broken, loose tiles of winter, the same supervisor said that they were not obliged to install "snow stoppers." One hates to litigate against a neighbor but, if this happens again, there seems to be no other alternative.
