Clean up Damen

anyone interested in getting together early one morning next weekend and picking up some of the trash along Damen between Chicago and Augusta? I'd love to try and make my neighborhood look at least a little better!

  • Vanessa, West Town Resident interested in improving the community.

    I am interested in helping out, and meeting fellow neighbors who find the trash blowing about the street disturbing. I would also like to chat about how we can reduce the amount of trash on the street so in the future we don't even have to pick it up. Where is it coming from?????

  • Hey all, Happy Halloween, let me know if this is happening on Sunday and if so what time.

Barley and Brass Replaces FAME on Division Street

Wicker Wire: Earlier this month we reported that FAME located at 2015 W. Division Street, next to Takito Kitchen, had closed up shop quietly this Summer. It turns out another bar is opening in its place and, in all honesty, we were hoping for something a little more creative.

Neighborhood warning: attempted break in

Word of caution to the neighborhood, we had someone come up to our back door patio entrance and try to break in to our back door while we were home. Worse, we called the police and they took over 15 minutes to respond! Thankfully, he ended up running away but make sure all your gates and doors are locked!

  • What time of day was it?

  • MT Ukrainian Village

    Can you give some details about where you live and what type of house it was? Is there a back gate/yard? What floor are you on? Thanks

  • This was around 1030, 11 at night. We have a gate however it was unlocked and we live on the 3rd floor of a walkup. Police ended up finding the guy after he ran down the street. Appeared to be drunk and/or on drugs and maybe more confused than on purpose.
