4200 Block of North Drake

Perhaps there's a reasonable explanation but lately there have been quite a few very expensive cars park on this block. I'm talking a Hummer, a Porsche, a Bentley and a Lamborghini. The last three are parked there right now (well, the Bentley is a half-block down). Sunday morning there were two guys outside 4224 or so blasting rap music (at 9:45 on a Sunday morning). Maybe in the suburbs I could see people actually owning these cars... but a Lamborghini? Here?

Kitchen Faucet Installer

Can someone recommend an honest handyman to install a kitchen faucet in the Albany Park area? I have the faucet. What is the standard charge for such a job?

  • Rob S. Albany Park resident, condo owner. Dog owner.

    Call Edwin at ChicagolandPlumbing.net Very honest and affordable. Will often tell me how to do the repairs I need over the phone when they are simple. But has also been a lifesaver for jobs that are far beyond my scope or skill set.

  • Thanks Rob. This is helpful.

Albany Park Burglaries Lead to Warning From Police

CHICAGO — Police are warning Albany Park residents to be on the lookout for suspicious people and activity after a string of burglaries around the neighborhood in February.

During the burglaries, someone pries or kicks open doors and takes jewelry, cash and small electronics. Police have no description of the burglar or burglars.

    Except that they are North Park burglaries. Not one was in Albany Park, as my wife pointed out to the DNAInfo reporters. DNAInfo has now changed the title of their story to reflect North Park burglaries. Please repost this to North Park.

    Still beware.

  • Last I checked the bad guys don't care about neighborhood boundaries so it is best to be aware of what is going on in the area around where you live.

I was pretty shocked to come home to this stuck to the front door of my condo building last night.

I left work early yesterday to get my vote in and came home to find this. There was another one with my husband's name on it. He had voted before going to work right when the polls opened.

Who did or didn't vote might be a matter of public record, but I think it's pretty disgusting to A: feel it's ok to tell my neighbors if (and when) I voted, B: get your information wrong in the case of my husband and finally C: think it is OK to to put my first and last name on the front door of the building I live in.

I'm pretty upset to have this person as my alderman.

  • Lived in 33 for 20 years!
    Never got one from
    Dick!

  • My Sister lives in a condo out in the suburbs. Last presidential election, some national organization mailed out to each tenant, a postcard with everyone's name and address on it and, whether they voted or not! 80% are females, 60 years old and above,that reside there! Had some of them in tears because of the embarrassment and fear knowing others now knew their name and address! Just wrong!!
