If you read page 4 of this week's New City, you'll get an idea of some of the present hardships facing our community. I won't go into detail, as I'd like to do my part to keep the board free of political debate. Suffice it to say that there's great disagreement about granting the neighbourhood "Landmark Status."
To keep things chow-centric--but not any less depressing--I want to mention that Edmar Grocery Store will be turning into a Dominick's at some point in the not-too-distant future. Also, Tuman's ("Alcohol Abuse Center") will be closing within a year. Oh, and lastly, the NE corner of Damen and Chicago is going to be rented by... Subway.
