What is going on!? 'Canon' sounds?

I'm on Buena and I've heard several loud canon-like sounds over the past few minutes...what's going on!? The first one was loud enough to wake me from my sleep and sounds too intense to be gun shots or fireworks. Any idea what it could be? It sounds like it's coming from the Wrigleyville area, but it's hard to tell.

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.

Found very sweet fat orange cat

It's on our back porch with no collar. Very sweet and vocal and must be someone's pet. Maybe pregnant?

    Parking spot available for rent in a heated, well-lit parking garage at 4846 N. Clark Street for $175/ month. An individual electronic garage door opener is used to enter and exit the garage. The parking garage is very secure (patrolled by towing company) and has both stair and elevator access. The specific spot is very close to the staircase and elevator. The garage is immediately underneath the building, so just one flight of stairs. The Condo Association provides snow removal outside of the parking garage, so access to and from the garage should never be impaired by snow. This spot is available for rent beginning September 1, 2014 with a one-year lease.

    Contract Type:Monthly
    Is the spot covered?:Yes

    You might also want to check on parking rates near the Ravenswood Metra station ot the Ravenswood Hospital Medical Center. The Kimball Brown Line Station has 73 parking spaces.A 2014 map says that parking is $5/12 hours weekdays,$4/12 hours on weekends.

  • Hi, I know it's a late response, I but I just came across your question. I have a garage spot for rent (1 parking spot in a 2-car alley garage with automatic overhead door). The alley is between Hermitage & Paulina, and Leland & Lawrence.

Hit and Run, red minivan Y29

Today, while walking down Francisco I witnessed a darker red metallic minivan sideswipe a white parked car, taking off its Mirror. I was crossing the street and stopped right in the middle as it happened and threw my hands up at the van. It then sped towards me and almost hit another car as it swerved and turned down Francisco towards montrose. I only got a partial plate in all the hub bub, plate starts Y29. Keep a lookout guys!

Please get your car alarm under control!!

Dear Person who parks near Grace and Fremont,

PLEASE PLEASE make your car alarm stop going off all the darn time! It goes off at 3am, 7am, lunchtime, and always the early evening. I'm pretty sure that your car isn't being broken into otherwise the incessant noise would have stopped because someone stole your car. Please for the love of God, remember where you parked and stop this awful noise pollution at all hours.

  • I believe this car is now parked at Wilton/Cornelia -- The alarm has gone off with each passing train since 9am -- What did you do when you made this post? I'd like to follow up similarly!

  • its my car sorry guys.. me have no money to have it fixed... :( sowwieee...

At&t U Verse out?

Anybody lose service with AT&T U Verse in lakeview since yesterday?

  • d3 NOH

    it's a lot slower than what RCN offers
    maybe you should just get a new plan w/ RCN?

  • Good to know! I threatened to leave about 6 months ago (even though I have no option) and they dropped it about 100 bucks. So I'm waiting for the next shoe to drop. And it still isn't as good as a brand new customer package. I'll just keep playing the game. But to your point, I won't sacrifice speed. Thanks d3

Deck Refinishing

I have a deck above a 3 car garage that the prior owner painted. With the weather conditions this paint looks terrible and is peeling off. I would like the deck to be stripped of the paint and then stained. The deck is approximately 20x25. We live in Lakeview near the Diversey and Ashland crossroads. Please pass along suggestions.
