Fun Fact: "Originally known as Canfield, you’ll notice there’s still a Canfield Avenue remaining in the area in Park Ridge. Why cans? Frank Suerth of the Northwest Chicago Historical Society explains the neighborhood, like much of Chicago (outside of downtown), was a farming community. There would be empty dairy cans all a...

Looks like the Pickwick has a tenant in Park Ridge. There’s already a lot of pizza/Italian in the neighborhood. But ANY restaurant is better than a Pearl Vision. EDIT: For those who can't read the link, it's called Pazzi di Pizza. Their original loca...

Here's a small and simple goal (or two) for the April aldermanic (love that word) elections: -- let's not have any sign-stealing this time -- or any accusations thereof in Park Ridge. Let's set the middle-schoolers a good example of civil behavior, democracy, etc. etc. -- let's attend at least one of the coffees our neighbors host for candidates. It's just as much work for 3 as for...

Wow. Regular people, including businesspeople -- not just the nuns, bless them -- talking about doing the moral and economically smart thing around Park Ridge? Perhaps there is hope. So ask your friendly neighborhood "non-partisan" candidates where they stand. And do keep in mind that the value of the federal minimum wage peaked in 1968 when it was raised to...

A few months ago, the Park Ridge Country Club repaired and painted their metal fence and placed a plastic screen on their metal chain link fence along Greenwood. The repairs and painting was needed, as it poorly reflected on the neighborhood. That maintenance was appreciated. However, the green/black plastic screening which is usually placed on a metal fence t...

So I have been doing my research on Park Ridge mayoral candidates and found that one of the candidates — Lucas Fuksa — is a commercial real estate attorney which raised a whole bunch of red flags. I have dug up with some highly concerning information and feel the need to share. It appears that Lucas Fuksa has some wealthy developer donors to his campaign whom he will be beholden to if he is ele...

Many residents don't seem to know that the City of Park Ridge has commissioned a storm water survey for the residents. Many of our neighborhoods are plagued by flooding. But thus far, only 136 residents have completed the survey! Please do so: it's very important. And if you have parents or grandparents who don't use...
