Real Estate & Home Improvement / Chateau
« Last post by Peggoo on Today at 01:19:50 PM »
I will be looking at an apartment for sale at the Chateau.  Wondering about a few things:  Is the garden child-friendly?  Is it true that the garden is sinking and people are not allowed to walk or sit on the grass?  Do the slate roofs need (costly) repairs?  Any and all info regarding this bldg would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you!
 I am loving this event. We need more activities for the above 7-8 year old kids here. Also am thinking
many more adults would bike locally if they were gently introduced to city biking. Give mom's bikes
with kids seats too. Hope it goes well today!
Dear FCCA, your post is lacking a critical detail, the date/s of this event !
Daniel Dromm's office is still in need of costumes for children 1-4 years and 12 years and up both boys and girls.
Please consider donating a new costume.
thank you

i used to love tortilleria nixtamal, but my last two meals there weren't stellar. I still think they make a solid margarita and I like the space a lot...maybe I just happened to hit two off days in a row?

I like Juquila, and the trucks on 75th and roosevelt.

BTW how's the super situation and the etiquette for this complex? At my current building I'd tip the super for small stuff and pay him a certain rate for more involved jobs (like replacing old radiator or broken cabinets and such). I assume here's the same?

Hi, it's the same here. The super is helpful by nature and he is really appreciative of people who respect his time and tip him and his staff. I tip him for small stuff, like helping me move a sofa and pay him market rate for a project. I gave him a lump sum when I switched buildings and he put up all of my blinds and ceiling lights for me. They'll do bigger projects as well - I know he put in new tile for someone who didn't like the grey tile in the bathrooms.

I do know that he hates it when people knock on his apartment door. I can't believe how many people pester him at home.

I like it cool but i always thought 55 degrees was much too low.  I have had neighbors though that used to call the super because they thought their apartment was too cold and when they checked it was 75-80 inside the apartment but still not warm enough for them.  When you have to pay to provide your own heat you get used to wearing a sweater/sweatshirt during the winter.  Now I  keep my thermostats set at 64 degrees from 10PM to 7AM and 68 degrees the rest of the time

Taqueria Coatzingo at Roosevelt and 76th, maybe?  I admit I stopped going because I thought they went downhill. But I haven't been there for about 4 years so maybe they've gotten better. Has anyone been lately?

Also, the taco trucks outside the Roosevelt Ave. subway are good.
