Here are some selected items from the May 2008 newsletter – to receive the full issues monthly by e-mail contact me at 


Note from Caryn – Former South Shoreite Jeff Heilbrunn works with a company that is breathing new life into Chicago’s South Shore.  Builders Center of Chicago (BCC) is developing many familiar properties and working with community leaders to help residents onto the road to home ownership. The company offers potential home owners the keys to condo-quality home ownership through specialized programs such as rent to own programming. Their consulting services before, during and after the sale include credit counselling, money management, and fiscal advice. These ongoing programs allow current renters and others victimized by the real estate market to capitalize on the exciting opportunities in real estate. To learn more about this program, check out the website at or contact Jeff at


In addition, a program called the “Last Four Miles” sponsored by the City of Chicago covers redevelopment of the beach and park areas on the old US Steel South Works property between 71st and 95th street.  For more information see  Jeff continues to offer a photo album of South Shore locations at the site and if you wish to have a location added, please contact Jeff and he will get your picture on the site.  Memories galore!
