Edgewater Glen iPhone & iPad Apps in Beta!

Hi Neighbors,

We’re super excited to report some progress on our neighborhood iPhone & iPad Apps. We will be in beta testing with some friends over the course of the next few weeks and then let it out into the wild. Below are a few preliminary screen shots of both apps if you are curious. Hopefully we’ll be able to follow up with an Android app in the Google Play Store very soon.

Stay tuned!

Don’t “do” Facebook?

It took us awhile to get setup here… If you prefer to stay connected with the neighborhood through other means, you can now find us over on Twitter (@EdgewaterGlen) & Google+. Soon to come: Instagram, Ello and whatever else is next… (maybe if there is time)

Selecting the icons below should take you right there.



Between our Edgewater 5K Run & the 2nd Annual Edgewater Fall Arts Fair, there is a ton going on in the neighborhood again.

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

m.henrietta? Oh no, say it ain’t so…

This just in from the neighbors…


Clearly it has been awhile since we’ve been on Granville (practicing our Metra commute in anticipation of the Peterson stop instead of the Red Line). This may not be news to anyone else in the neighborhood but…

“After four years, m.henrietta is closing its doors. We thank the wonderful Edgewater neighborhood for their support and patronage, you made our experience a very special one.


You can still have all of your favorite dishes at our flagship location, m.henry cafe in Andersonville, less than a mile away! (5707 N Clark, 773-561-1600) We hope to see all of our m.henrietta regular faces there!


Be on the lookout for Revival, an exciting new restaurant opening its doors very soon.


Once again thank you for your well wishes and your kindness. See you at m.henry!”

It is a tough act to follow but welcome to the neighborhood (Revival) folks. You have landed in a wonderful little corner of Chicago.

Putting Edgewater Glen on the (Joe Mills) Map

We are thrilled to have received our Joe Mills typography aerial map this weekend.

Does anyone know Joe? It would be exciting to see if he can put Edgewater Glen on the next version of the Chicago Neighborhood Map (or on a new Edgewater specific map?) when he makes an update.

If you dig Joe’s work as much as we do and want to support a great local artist, have a look around his online store.


Backyard Front Yard: 2014 Windy City Coop Tour

Curious about urban chicken keeping?

This is your chance to take a peak at the wide variety of chicken coops and breeds in the Chicago area at the 5th Annual Windy City Coop Tour on September 20 – 21 from 10 AM to 2 PM each day. It looks like there are a few of our Edgewater neighbors on the route.

Between our Edgewater Glen Plant Swap, Andersonville’s City Made Fest, and the 2014 Edgewater Home Tour it looks like it is shaping up to be a fun weekend in the neighborhood!

Big Data Edgewater

If you geek out on neighborhood data like this… check out the demographic info the neighbors sent in this evening. It was pulled from Onboard Informatics for the larger 60660 zip code (so not just Edgewater Glen).

If you have the means, it looks like it is time to get spending down in town at City Made Fest this weekend! 🙂

Thanks for the neighbor submission John & Dennis! Very cool.
