Chicago Voters Step Out For CHUY!

Emma & Cindy standing proud for Chuy Garcia @Broadway & Sunnyside






































Pictured Above: Emma & Cindy (Cindy being the shorter, less fashionably dressed one) showing last minute support for Jesus 'Chuy' Garcia in Chicago's Uptown Neighborhood. Garcia faces incumbent Rahm Emanuel in the city's first-ever mayoral runoff election on Tuesday. If elected, Chuy will also become the first Latino mayor in Chicago history.

Now to be fair to Rahm, someone did stick a sign in a median strip for him on Ashland Avenue (pictured below). But personally, I'll take a loyal volunteer and a dog in a tee-shirt any election day of the week. There are still some things $$ can't buy in this town.  #Chuy2015

Make A Wrigley Wish

Left Field View of Wrigley From Clark St 04/01/2015



























Took a short walk over to Wrigley Field yesterday. With 72 hours to go until the 2015 Home Opener @Clark & Addison, it looks as if the union trades will be logging triple-overtime to get her ready. The Cardinals swing into town this Sunday night for a three game series; two under the lights and one afternoon. Good news is the snow has melted. Bad news...sorry, it's Spring in Chicago and its baseball season--there is no bad news.

Spring Snow Squall (Chicago Style)

Agatite Ave, Chicago
Agatite Ave, Chicago






















Chicago just wont let it go. Snapped this on my way to an Uptown neighborhood listing appointment on Monday, March 23 (less than 72 hours after Spring officially began). Hey, if you can't complain about the weather around here, you're only left with the traffic, the potholes, and the politics. Chilly subject matter on all fronts, to be sure.

Chicago Snail Mail Fail

mail room junk mail
My Chicago High Rise Mail Room 

























I'm no David Axelrod but I have to think there are a hundred better ways for Chicago run-off candidates to get their last minute political pleas across than pounding our postal service with direct mail -- Every. Single. Day. I figure they're spending about $500 a day (print, postage & labor) on my 900+ unit building alone. And clearly, the picture above speaks to the ROI. Come on.

Wrigleyville's Historic Groundkeeper's House

circa 1923 Wrigleyville caretakers house
circa 1923 Wrigleyville caretakers house relocation


















Built in 1923 for baseball field caretaker and groundskeeper, Bobby Dorr, this historic brick abode (pictured above) was spared the wrecking ball, hoisted up on an industrial strength trailer, and is currently awaiting relocation as renovations continue within the  'Friendly Confines' of Wrigley Field in Chicago's Wrigleyville neighborhood. On a side note: original cost of construction 92 years ago? $6,000.
