Abandoned red honda crv blocking garage

Opened the garage door to discover an abandoned crv (red) Illinois plates: R45 7334 blocking our garage. Back door open and stereo missing. Called 911 and currently waiting for police to arrive.

    (btw how did lincoln towing get ahold of it? were they just listening on the radio to swoop in like they do for an accident? or was it done as a city contracted tow? if not you have to have a sign up w/ lincoln towing's info, no, and she might be able to make a complaint against someone on that point?)

    What a pain! Seems like you went through all the right steps. I am sorry to see that one of the EveryBlock comment makers has the intelligence a pile of rocks, but when people ignore him and mark his comments as "unneighborly" he will eventually go away. Think of a two year old having a temper tantrum... the more you pay attention to it, the more they will kick and scream. Eventually, if you ignore them (properly removing them from a store/restaurant/etc) they will calm down.

Reported Dead Body on SB LSD

This morning around 10:00am, I was heading southbound on Lake Shore Drive. Between Hollywood Ave and Bryn Mawr entrances, I saw a male adult laying flat faced down 4 inches from the Drive. Honestly, in an unnatural position. It almost caused me to slam on my brakes to stop and check. My initial thought was, "oh my god!, there's a dead man!"

I continued driving for safety reasons, but immediately called 911 to report what I had just witnessed. I...

This morning around 10:00am, I was heading southbound on Lake Shore Drive. Between Hollywood Ave and Bryn Mawr entrances, I saw a male adult laying flat faced down 4 inches from the Drive. Honestly, in an unnatural position. It almost caused me to slam on my brakes to stop and check. My initial thought was, "oh my god!, there's a dead man!"

I continued driving for safety reasons, but immediately called 911 to report what I had just witnessed. I reported the location. The dispatcher began to express some level of anxiety and asked, "Where is he?!?!? Do you know where he is?!??!? We can't find him!!... We've had many calls but we can't find him.." I told her the exact location.

Does anyone know what the heck happened??? I never stopped. I tried looking at the news and police blogs and can't get any info. I'm very curious.

  • Michelle Edgewater Edgewater Resident: Love the neighborhood!

    Sounds like quite a disturbing sight, glad you called 911. It may not be related, but there is a man who frequently sleeps right next to the curb of LSD at Bryn Mawr. I see him all the time while walking to the lakefront.

    I wonder if this relates to the tent that's been camped out 10' from LSD for the last week. It was just south of there, first on the west side then moved at some point on or before Friday to just on the east side of LSD,

20TH District CPD/Alderman O'Connor

Hey. Why is it that you have to call the police a total of 24 times before they investigate a complaint? And by investigate, I mean drive by slowly as 10-15 kids are in the alley shooting off M120's and shooting Roman candles at each other. Really?! YouTube is gonna love these videos. Btw it's 12:30 am.

  • 5500 N Cambell? I counted the last one at about 1:30.

  • Pipsqueak Lincoln Square Resident

    Exactly. Me too. Not to mention their fireworks were being lit by kids under 10. At first I was worried. Then I was hoping they'd blow their hands off the later it got and the address was 5526 N. Campbell for the record. I even went out there and asked...

    Exactly. Me too. Not to mention their fireworks were being lit by kids under 10. At first I was worried. Then I was hoping they'd blow their hands off the later it got and the address was 5526 N. Campbell for the record. I even went out there and asked them to stop as the Roman candles were going off when what looked like a 10 year old girl was holding them. They argued that "it's 4th of July what the hell do you want?" My reply was that I wanted to sleep along with everyone else in my building. We actually all emailed the alderman in regards to this and non response of the 20th and YES it was going on well through 1:30 am!!!! I can see lighting them off till a reasonable time like 10pm...but 1:30 am?!

  • Mr Uncle Lived in Chicago since 1997

    Maybe the 20th district bosses were all over at O'Connor house or visiting his neighbor to get a job security off duty for work at Walsh construction? It's unlikely you will ever hear back from 40th ward unless you donate frequently to his campaign.

That Bird

For the love of all things, what on earth kind of bird is out there shrieking all night, every night? I cannot drown out the sound with both my AC and air filter on. It circles high in the air around the corners of Lincoln and Balmoral and Lincoln and Sunnyside. And it won't stop shrieking!

  • Joan M. Back in Lincoln Square and liking it.

    Nighthawks are the best! Wherever there are flat roofs to nest on in the city, you may see them especially at dusk and then hear them into the night as they circle in the sky catching insects. I've never understood why a predator would give itself away to its prey by making so much noise. But they sound so exuberant, don't they? You can hear their calls here:

    I've always wondered what the heck that thing was. It doesn't sound that shrill in nature. Must be the echoes from the buildings. I always said it sounds like a pterodactyl.

Strange Vehicle Parked near 5400 Campbell

Hi. I was out walking my dog and there's a car parked in a puddle by my building that's been there for many days. It looks abandoned or something. I called 311 because it looks like there is keys in the ignition. How can the owner be found if the police won't come after calling 311? It looks like someone left it there and it has out of state Minnesota plates. I'm wondering if it's stolen since it was not moved for almost two months.
