Suspicious activity-Nelson & Lakewood

A suspicious individual was seen at Nelson/Lakewood this morning. Approx 5'6, wearing an oversized grey hoodie and red sweatpants. It appears he was canvassing residences at 8am. When he caught us looking he put his hood up. Was standing on the corner looking around for several minutes. Between 9am-10am, trash cans in the alley had been moved in front of back gates, in position to jump over back fences. Lock up garages, back doors, and bikes!!

  • Thank you Snappette. I go to the Jewel at Ashland and Wellington from time to time and will keep an eye out. It might surprise Jonathon to know that he is the subject of so much comment and concern. It would be great to direct him to a place where he could get help.

  • Vashti you are correct. When the next person that sees John, please tell him to talk to his local beat cop to let him know which residences he is going to target this week to break into. He has an impressive rap sheet and it'd be nice if he didn't pull our police resources as much anymore. This will insure he gets the proper attention he needs in Cook County.

Sound proofing companies?

I am taking over a theater space that is on the second floor above a bar. We have been told that on live band nights the sound bleed is very bad.

I have been looking into soundproofing but have only found two companies that do it. One companies yelp reviews caution of some type of scam artist. The other the owner has taken four weeks just to get me a quote. Anyone have someone they like?

Anyone work with someone they like

    Call Jeff DeLong at the Athenaeum. He's been in Chicago theater for a long time and may know someone.

  • tq

    Not sure that this place is appropriate, but I have noticed it on the way to MI.

Park concrete urns

I'm trying to find a company to replace two concrete flower urns at a local park and am having a hard time finding anyone that does this. Does anyone know of a company that does this work?

Fire near Lincoln and Wellington

There is (was) a fire just a little south east of the intersection around 1:45 pm. Lincoln is closed to southeast traffic at the intersection

  • L

    Appears to be the apartment over Underwater Safaris.

  • Shelly Lifelong suburbanite, now in South Lakeview.

    That would explain the traffic mess at Lincoln and school. :( a neighbor posted the pictures on the South Lakeview neighbors page on Facebook.
