Evanston has a history of innovation. Not only is it home to legendary Northwestern University, the city gave children and kids at heart a legendary toy and a cool treat that remain favorites today.

Having seen some youngsters play with pencils and empty spools of thread, Charles Pajeau and Robert Pettit had a Eureka moment in 1914, creating Tinkertoys. 24 years prior, local confectioners — careful to obey the Sunday religious ban (blue laws) on the “soda” part of ice cream soda (thought to be a sin) — replaced it with syrup. The ice cream sundae was now palatable to the pious and magnificent for the masses.

BJB’s talent is rehabbing vintage residences. Among Evanston’s best — the courtyard building at 2247-2257 Ridge. Recently renovated, these apartments offer large floor plans, hardwood floors, newer windows, modernized bathrooms and spacious closets. Thrown in:
