Police on Irving Park

Does anyone know why about 12 police cars are speeding down Irving Park Rd-- past Damen? Most were unmarked.

    Oh good

    Haji - I'm guessing that Kevin S was making a reference to The Fugitive TV series and movie. Or maybe he was serious!

Sympathetic for their situation but quite the eyesore...

While I am sympathetic for their situation, what can be done about finding these residents a new "home"? This is the homeless situation under the Irving Park / LSD viaduct. There have been multiple fights and on Thursday night the police and ambulance responded. Do we can the Alderman? The police seem to ignore the situation despite the "no loitering" sign.

    Josh, you do realize everything you propose undoubtedly goes against City and Federal dept. of transportation rules (LSD is a federal roadway, AKA Route 41). The idea of making the lakefront less accessible to pedestrians via 'closed' viaducts, narrowed sidewalks is just not going to happen. I can't figure out...

    Josh, you do realize everything you propose undoubtedly goes against City and Federal dept. of transportation rules (LSD is a federal roadway, AKA Route 41). The idea of making the lakefront less accessible to pedestrians via 'closed' viaducts, narrowed sidewalks is just not going to happen. I can't figure out if those overpasses you suggest would make the walkways more or less dangerous for those outside of automobiles. And at what cost? Millions more than the cost of housing homeless humanely.

    Also, slightly off topic, did you know there is a long term planning process involving many community groups and agencies to get their input on making LSD more user friendly for those not in cars, for making it connect better with city streets? There is a lot of pie in the sky 'visioning' for which there are no funds (taking the curve at Oak Street underground, for instance), but that doesn't mean there won't be good ideas that can be implemented.

  • Yes, I support the initiative, and I want the viaducts cleared permanently.

Former Pizza Persona space?

I walked past the former pizza persona space on diversey last week and the paper is down from the Windows. It looks like they're doing some work in there. Anyone know what's happening in that space?

    Blaze would be great. I hope somebody does something with the old panera and Walgreens too. Some sort of fun restaurant would be great.

  • I walked by today. It looks like something is ready to open there, but I didn't spot any signage. There were all new tables and chairs that are different from pizza persona, but the pizza oven was still there. I suppose we'll learn soon.

Found Chase Freedom in alley

I found a Chase Visa belonging to J Donohoe in the alley next to 2626 n Lakeview. I'll leave it with the doorman at that building.

  • I appreciate all the responses, but please stop. I didn't submit the post asking for suggestions as to what to do, but rather as a heads up. I live at 2626 and trust the doorman. I'm sure by the time I found the card in the alley it was cancelled, because I have no idea how long it was sitting there.

  • SpamAlert Hates being spammed

    Telling people to stop posting on social media is like waving a red flag at a bull. But thanks for your post. I imagine anyone who has read through the suggestions now has a good idea of an appropriate action should they find someone's credit card, if they hadn't thought about the subject previously.

Found diamond ring

Diamond ring found at Broadway and Roscoe last wendsday. Describe it if it's yours.

  • I lost my wedding rings a while back. Does the ring you found sound like it might be this: engagement ring is platinum with a circle cut center stone and a halo of diamonds and diamonds on the band as well.

    Thanks!

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    How the MF do you lose your wedding rings? I mean, I know Lucy lost hers while baking a cake but that was back in the 50s.
