You can get a 2/2 gut rehab or new construction condo in Ukrainian Village (but it'll be in the southwestern part -- farther from the el) or a smaller 2/1 in the heart of UV or the western or southern parts of Wicker Park for under 300k -- in my mind there's not a doubt that's where you should live.

Prices have significantly fallen in the last 15 months -- back then 1/1s were going for 275-300k in Wicker Park.

Good thing, because you're not allowed to park trucks on residential streets overnight in most parts of the city. And you're not allowed to drive them on streets that are designated as "boulevards" either, though I don't know if that's enforced strictly anywhere other than Lake Shore Drive.

Are you talking about pick-ups or bigger, commercial trucks? There are quite a few pick-ups that park on my street.

Hmm, looks like it's not as difficult as I had thought. Office of the Chicago City Clerk -- Residential Pickup Truck or Van Permits (http://www.chicityclerk.com/residentialpickuptruck.php - broken link)

There are still 12 wards where it's not permitted, including mine. Which doesn't make sense to me, this is one of the easier neighborhoods to park in.

The only thing in our home thaqt uses gas is our stove which I love but I have been reading some posts and people keep talking about high gas bills.

Is this common and what is the gas being used for?

You took the words out of my mouth. Actually why does anyone bother to respond to your nonsense?

The "southern girl who's so dumb it's cute" act isn't all that cute.

Or is it not an act?

huh? I just asked a question

What is the big deal with answering what most people use gas in thier homes for?

Seriously Ive said it before I really hope everyone in Chicago isnt as uptight as most of you come across. That's a sad way to live your life.
