  • Levi Lincoln Square is my homeboy

    Interestingly, I think it's still called Albert's Place. But at least they removed the shady tinted windows. Now it fits right in with the Olympic Club.

seeking advice: Property Encroachment - how to resolve

Our home's exterior wall is covered in ivy & is damaging the masonry. Our unneighborly neighbor doesn't accept responsibility for the encroachment (the ivy clearly originates from his property). Has anyone had experience working through the channels of the city to resolve similar conflicts? I'd happily get on a ladder & remove it, but physically am unable. Furthermore, I don't want to pay for the removal of their encroachment.

  • We had a similar issue and rather than remove the vines from the top down, I simply cut them at the base in the breezeway and let the die off my wall. It's taken a few years for the dead vine strings to fall off, but it was a safe and effective method that didn't involve my neighbor at all. Good luck.

  • This is a problem on my apartment. I rent, and every year have to fight to keep the ivy off my window air unites and prevent it from trying to get in around the sides of the air conditioners and from covering my windows. What I find most problematic is...

    This is a problem on my apartment. I rent, and every year have to fight to keep the ivy off my window air unites and prevent it from trying to get in around the sides of the air conditioners and from covering my windows. What I find most problematic is the bugs. The windows sills are constantly covered in dead bugs and there are always some crawling on the ceiling by those windows every few mornings. The problem we were having is that the ivy originated on our neighbor's lot. The neighbor was fine with my landlord cutting the ivy roots, but there are very large and thick decorative bushes blocking the way to the ivy. It is difficult to reach and hard to figure out which root is what. My landlord managed to cut the ones intruding on my windows a few years ago. But this year the ivy is back.

    I suggest you stop over and ask if you can have access to the area where the ivy is growing so you can either pull up the roots are cut them. Your neighbor might not want to do the work, but I can't see why they would care if you did it. The ivy may originate on their property but is not really their plant, as all but the roots on your property.

Annoying shadows from planes!!

Forget the noise pollution - I am pretty much fed up with the constant shadows these planes blanket my home throughout the day. I never noticed this last summer.

Any thoughts on how I can most effectively submit this feedback somewhere?

  • LincSqSonny Lincoln Sq resident

    @Bill Normally I would except I'm fortunate since I ony get a suntan... and not a sunburn...

  • David Paskey Life-long Chicagoan, creative guy, pretty tall

    Hey now, let's not throw shade on this legitimate concern.

    Besides, the shadows are probably just from drones, and those are harmless, misunderstood citizens deserving of love like the rest of us, probably.
