Trashy streets impact quality of life for residents in Albany Park—but litter also negatively affects business, too. Our neighborhood group, Albany Park Neighbors, understands that both residents and businesses have a critical role to play in maintaining our neighborhood’s image.

Albany Park Neighbors is proud to introduce the Block Star Business program. This effort  helps our group of residents recognize and champion local businesses who are going above and beyond in the fight against litter, while also providing great customer service and going the extra mile for our community.

Here’s How We Celebrate a Block Star Business:

  • Certificate of appreciation for display in your shop or window
  • Facebook mention, with a link to your business’ Facebook page or website, to nearly 500 area shoppers
  • Listing on our website, with a link to your business’ Facebook page or website

We’ll be selecting Block Star Businesses throughout the year by taking nominations from our membership, then voting on final winners. We hope these efforts drive business through your doors!

  1. Hi, Elaine. Thanks for your comment. First, we really don’t update our wordpress site anymore and will be taking it down soon. So please redirect your bookmark to albanyparkneighbors.com.

    Second, Golden Crust received a Block Star Award right after it opened, and residents were overjoyed by the renovation and new patio opportunities. In the few years since it’s been open, we have also heard about issues with parking and have seen a lack of parkway development.

    Golden Crust is pretty active in the Albany Park Chamber of Commerce, and we would encourage you to speak to GC directly as well as to the Chamber to escalate these issues. We will also pass along your comment.
