Evanston, Illinois, is a wonderful city located just to the north of Chicago and perched on the shores of Lake Michigan. Yet, there are some quirks in its local ordinance that may strike some as odd. Here are a few that we cam across (with citation to Chapter 5 of the City's municipal ordinance):
Curbed Chicago reports that the vacant storefront on the 5400 block of Clark Street in Andersonville will soon be occupied by a new Virgin Mobile store.
For the first in in ....well forever..Cook County Property Tax Bills are coming out on time. According to the Treasurer's site, the due date will be August 1, 2012. Oh joy, and just in time for back to school season.
The US Supreme Court today upheld the recently enacted healthcare law. Care to read the opinion? Caution: It's not the most exciting read that you will ever engage in. But for all you legal junkies out there, go at it.
According to a report from CNN Money and a survey by Trulia, the Edgewater neighborhood on Chicago's north side is Chicago's most popular community for Chicago's gay community.
Boystown has probably become too expensive and is no longer the home to may gays, even though the majority of gay bars remain located in that area. The Edgewater hood is quickly gaining on that stat though.Plus, Edgewater has Chicago's only "gay" beach located at Hollywood. Officially is is known as Osterman Beach, but is commonly referred to as Hollywood Beach or the Gay Beach.
Here is an excerpt fron the Sun-Times article:
The former Goldblatt’s department store in Uptown — vacant since the Borders bookstore moved out last year — has a new owner. Joshua Mintzer, head of Saxony Capital LLC, said he closed on the elegant old building and adjoining real estate in the 4700 block of North Broadway earlier this month, paying $3 million to the previous owner, Cole Taylor Bank.
Mintzer, who said he typically buys “‘C’ buildings in ‘A’ locations,” said he was attracted — among other things — by the building’s location to a host of music venues, including the Green Mill, The Riviera Theatre and the Aragon Ballroom — and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s talk about possibly turning the area into an “Entertainment District.”
