Will keep looking, maybe Buena Vista. They have really done wonders there. I lived there when the cockroaches outnumbered the people about 30:1 during college.

I moved from Logan Square when the drive bys were right next to my coach house. I reside in Bartlett right now, but my friend is putting her town house on the market in the next month or 2 after being in it 24 years. Bartlett is a wonderful town to live in. I'm a 3 block walk to to the Metra train that goes downtown. I believe I'm heading out to Minneapolis for the next year and a half. If you choose WI, look in Milwaukee. Amtrak is a 90 minute ride to Chicago.

The last time we lived in the MW was in Milwaukee. It's a nice city. Last place was in Brown Deer (western Milw 'burb). Both of us miss the Midwest. We're thinking hard about Milwaukee.

That Amtrak, oh yeah. Remember taking the train up from Chgo when going for my boards in 1983. That train and I are besties.

The train has been updated with a few more stops in-between, one being Mitchell Field just on the south outskirt of Milwaukee!

Grew up a Hoosier but consider myself a Chicagoan (lived there several times over past 40 years). I call Chicago home.

They need the city to come in and take control of the crime in the area and put some money in it like
was done in

Buena Vista

Heartland Cafe was the major stabliziing force, they poured a lot of resource in to the area has permanently closed. They had a promise that they would remain with the neighborhood if the

Default Join the Sweds.........

Andersonville loves to celebrate the neighborhood's roots as a community of Swedish immigrants. The annual Hygge Fest is another event that embraces the Scandinavian aesthetic. Named after a Danish term that means "cozy," the two-day event sends attendees to local businesses, where they'll find sales, tastings and special events. The weekend kicks off with a Pajama Fun Run, which takes off from Elixir Andersonville at 8:30am on Saturday, February 1.

A Coffee & Hot Cocoa Crawl allows visitors to enjoy warm beverages at a variety of local destinations. You can also stop by businesses like Early to Bed, Foursided and Uncharted Books to take advantage of sales throughout the weekend.

IF you're not near a Fresh Thyme Market I suppose you could go to one of the other 9 they selected for a bird.......Cermak Fresh Market, Caputo's, Plum Market, Gene's Sausage Shop, Costco, Mariano's, Jewel-Osco, Whole Foods, or Tony's Fresh Market....
