  • Looks like they keep "closing" it because it takes 10 days to get to the vehicle after the request to tow and it gets moved by that time.

    The owner of that junk car lives near my block (3400 Marshfield) I and several of my neighbors have in the past reported it to 311. The owner did have 3 junk cars in the past, including a car that was always parked on the 1600 block of Roscoe (that car had "penis" graffiti on two of the windows)

Hello neighbors. Does anyone have any info on the potential developments for the vacant lot formerly Martinez market?

  • Lifeischanging Building Owner 36yr resident

    I'm curious to see what happens here as well. I live a couple of doors down and it has been used as a parking lot for vehicles without license plates (1st thought is an illegal towing yard). I've reported it to 311 and not sure if the issue has been looked into.

  • crusty swivelhead in the nabe

    There is now a sign on the property. There is an offer to "build to suit, commercial space" the builder has a name, a phone # and everything. It looks legitimate, but behind the fences are a bunch of junky cars with no liscense plates.

The three weekend robberies took place within a mile of the Belmont 'L' station, near the 3200 N. Clark St. mixed-use development that broke ground last week.

Just before midnight Saturday, police said three men used a gun to rob a 29-year-old man in the 3200 block of North Seminary Street. The men exited a four-door silver car (driven by a fourth man) while the victim was walking past and demanded the victim's wallet and cellphone, police said.

There were 20 robberies and 10 aggravated assaults or batteries in July in the area around the station, from Racine to Broadway and Roscoe to Wellington, according to police data. Before July, Town Hall police cited "really fantastic" crime numbers for 2015.

"I don't know if I'm paying closer attention, but I do feel like I'm reading about more [crime]," said Katy Green, 31, who was walking with her family near Diversey and Sheffield on Monday afternoon.

    Spate of Muggings Reported Near Belmont 'L' Station in Lakeview
    LAKEVIEW - Three weekend robberies - just a stone's throw from the site of a future Belmont-Clark development meant to deter crime - extend an upward trend in violent crime in Lakeview. Two men were arrested shortly after a robbery early Saturday, police said.
