Late night license

I hear the owners of the new bar (owners of owl) are going to be seeking a 5am license. Any thoughts on crime levels and general "trouble" after owl opened up? I think once that goes in it could open up some more business on that desolate block. Thoughts?

    I used to live near The Owl and during the summer it was pretty loud. I witnessed a few fights and kids damaging property but most of the noise came from harmless, young, over served patrons who haven't quite got the concept of "respect your neighbors and exit quietly." Sleeping with the windows open wasn't an option.

    I'm betting we would see some of the vacants around the new "owl" would convert to new businesses. The downside would be noise after midnight. Since the blue line runs by every 20 minutes after midnight already I'm leaning toward signing.

    Any issues with crime around the owl?

I noticed the for sale sign came down. Anybody know if someone bought it? What's going on there? It's steps from the trail entrance and in between new and old apartments. I'd like to see some more apartments and retail go in on this semi desolate stretch.

Spare Tire Stolen off Honda CR-V

Parked on street near Honore and Wabansia, noticed my spare tire was stolen late Monday/early Tuesday overnight. Looking back, some wheel locks would have been a good investment, but 10yrs parking on the city streets - I got too comfortable.

  • same thing happened to me yesterday with my CRV, near damen/waveland

  • This happened with my Cr-V in June 2014 on Altgeld/Racine, so I put a locking lug nut and a cable lock on my new spare. This morning, I noticed theives tried to steal my spare tire again, but thankfully the locks prevented it. I definately recommend securing your tire. I also had my catalytic converter stolen in April 2014, so that has an alarm on it too. Very frustrating.

Dibs

Just to spread the news, dibs is completely understandable. You spend over an hour shoveling, you deserve that spot. Thanks.

    Ah Dibs. I remember when mayor Daley supported it. That's when dibs became a big disputed issue again.
    I believe dibs is a statement about who you are in our society:
    1. Are you the kind of person who will take advantage of your neighbor and claim property that isn't...

    Ah Dibs. I remember when mayor Daley supported it. That's when dibs became a big disputed issue again.
    I believe dibs is a statement about who you are in our society:
    1. Are you the kind of person who will take advantage of your neighbor and claim property that isn't and never should be yours such as a squatter does?
    Or
    2. Are you being a good neighbor by cleaning out your spot and passing it forward as you should?
    3. Are you a giver or a taker?
    We all know what's the right thing to do and that those who want dibs are selfish haters only looking out for themselves.
    Sometimes for the fun of it I plow thru the curbside trash in my SUV (with front end cow catcher :) my kids think it's hilarious! On my block I'll pick up the dibs trash and throw it in the garbage.

    Kass, like dibs, is an embarrassment to Chicago. And the meathead doesn't even live here. I wonder if he does dibs in Western Springs?

What happened to being a good neighbor?

I walked the 5 or 6 blocks to Jewel this afternoon and hardly any sidewalks had been shoveled on the blocks of Paulina between Pierce and the store, not even the Lutheran church! I don't want to name names but not many of my neighbors on Pierce either! It used to be considered good etiquette to clear your walk for pedestrians. Not any more from what I can tell. What has happened in this neighborhood? Is it like this in other parts of the city?

  • If someone was friendly...and I mean just a glance of friendliness. I don't expect a "hello" or a "how are you".....just look UP. If someone looked up I would help them shovel their snow. Everyone is an island....it's 2015, honey. #anewworld

  • Vinita Mehta Resident

    I couldn't look up because of all the snow and wind.

Dog Walkers/Snow

With snow on the horizon please remember to pick up your dogs feces during walks. The snow does not give you a FREE PASS to leave the feces in front of people's property... Thanks...

  • Used to live in Noble Square. Great neighborhood. Besides all the dog poop EVERYWHERE.
