    I registered as a user on Everyblock because I thought it would be a helpful and informative way to interact with my neighbors. The content that some of you post is disturbing because it is rude, inappropriate, unnecessarily combative, and of a bullying nature. Not naming anyone here but you know who you are. I've been using the internet since the early 90's and have always viewed it as a powerful way of communication. I am always mystified to see the people that use the internet as a way to put others down or hurt and bully others while remaining anonymous. I'm guessing that everyone of you that is obnoxious would not have the courage to do what you do face-to-face. Civility is not dead and it is valued by many, many people, myself included. I do wish the moderators of this site exercised some sort of guidelines in the posts that are allowed to remain. Other sites exercise some type of monitoring and it would be nice to see such monitoring on Every Block.

Who Was That Masked Man?

Was @Chase Bank on Bryn Mawr recently when lo & behold, across the street @StarBucks there was this costumed masked person. We were in the midst of conducting business so we could not question the individual. He was dressed all in white. with feathers, boots & I think a gold belt. He looked like a Super Hero! Also a feathered headpiece. Could it be EagleMan? HawkMan? Any ideas?

The only place I saw anything was NBC, which isn't a site I normally go to.

I'm just curious if notice was given that I missed or, if not, why there was no notice. I came home to about 200 people swarming my apartment and the cops blocking my driveway so I couldn't even park in my own spot. I'm not complaining per se, as I understand they need to protect the guy, but it would have been nice to know there would be a zillion people here when I returned from a long day at work or that I may have to look for street parking in the pouring rain.

    Why does EveryBlock continue to host promotions from solicitors and advertisers from other websites? It seems like a conflict of interest and possibly a violation of guidelines.

EveryBlock is now owned by Comcast, and it's only a matter of time before they try to make money by way of soliciting ads from local (or, worse yet) national businesses.

Half Acre to open second brewery at 2050 W. Balmoral Ave.

This was news to me. Sounds like a done deal without any community input. What exactly will a 30-barrel brew house smell like? http://fw.to/sysi2eD

  • A brewery of this size will smell like cooking oats and grains, like sweet oatmeal. It also may have a sweet floral smell from the hope that are used. This will only be when they are mashing which is the shortest step in brewing, most of this time it will probably smell like nothing.

  • This will be incredible for Bowmanville.

if you want anything picked up, drop me a line at amigoschicagonorth@gmail.com. you can see more about our organization (and verify that I'm a real person :) at www.amigoslink.org/chicagonorth

Permit Parking in Edgewater Beach

Are others in the Edgewater Beach neighborhood in favor of permit parking? As more businesses come into the area and summer nears, the parking just seems to keep getting worse. I would like to start a petition for permit parking but want to get feedback from others. Thanks!

  • WatchFUL40 Bowmanville neighbour

    City stickers don't appear to be the issue here. Parking and parking rights. Permits would work. Permits/zones are established for a neighbourhood via certain regulations and criteria.

    https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/about/wards/30/news/requirements_forresidentialzoneparking.html

    I think permit parking would solve some issues. However Chicago, in general, is severely congested. I'm always verbally advocating for parking structures for heavily populated areas, especially those with a lot of multi-unit apartment complexes.

    Good luck.

  • d3 NOH

Hey Jimmy Johns - - Can You Deliver This?

To the Jimmy Johns at 6153 N Broadway St:

Everybody loves a good sandwich, but...

You must be aware that traffic on north Broadway in front of your store can be very heavy, but especially at rush hours. Please have your delivery drivers stop parking their cars IN THE ROAD in front of your business. They are blocking the entire right lane at times and causing traffic conditions that are unsafe.

Without a doubt, parking for your drivers must be an issue, but this situation is a liability for an accident waiting to happen.

And yes, I would like fries with that!

Thanks.

  • The JJ drivers are only a small part of the problem. On nice days, the car wash to the south will have cars waiting in line on Broadway. I have seen as many as 10 cars stacked up on Broadway as I try to walk across the street at Hood. I have witnessed many near accidents as confused drivers that erronously were trapped try to exit the line.

  • Leelee Dog lady, cat lady, juicer extraordinaire

    Maybe send a letter to them? If that is ignored maybe the alderman's office would be able to help you resolve this?

any news

    And, this today, it's in concert with the 48th Ward. Sounds OK to me. I bet they see an uptick in sales as a result.
