Lawrence..Central Pk..

I know there are certain streets that deserve more caution along Lawrence Ave between Kimball and maybe up to Hamlin...I know the area has gotten more populated...and it just looks more heavily transited..but is this something new or has it always been "sketchy" someone said its b/c of more buildings taking sec 8...
which opens up alot of debate...
but without getting too political...would this area be recommended to move into?

    My Albany park experience has been the worse of all the Chicago neighborhoods I've lived in. Burglarized twice. Car broken into several times. And I've even lived in Englewood for about six years.

  • Eh, I wouldn't want to live up there, to be honest. An old boyfriend lived up there for about six months last year and both of our cars were broken into during those 6 months. Another friend in the area had similar troubles.

City Construction Noise

CPS is doing a 4 million dollar renovation at VonStuben High School. Wonderful news! HOWEVER, the construction crews have been starting at 6am and working until after 10pm. It is beyond distruptive to those that live any where around the building. The police and alderman have been called, but it is my understanding that the noise ordinance does not apply to City construction or development crews.

CPS is doing a 4 million dollar renovation at VonStuben High School. Wonderful news! HOWEVER, the construction crews have been starting at 6am and working until after 10pm. It is beyond distruptive to those that live any where around the building. The police and alderman have been called, but it is my understanding that the noise ordinance does not apply to City construction or development crews. This is outrageous as we are tax payers who need to get sleep so we can be refreshed and able to go to work the next day TO PAY the taxes for said construction. Please, please, please call Alderman Laurino's office and complain about the noise. If enough residents call to complain, maybe they will start and end their day within normal hours. You may reach the aldermans office at: 773/736-5594.

4th of July noise

Well folks, it's that time again. I've lived near River park for almost 10 years now, and I realize that on the 4th of July everybody has to break out those illegal firecrackers and start shooting them off. What I really really really hate, is the sleep deprivation torture that ensues once you hit say 12, 12:30 and you really need to get to sleep. That's when they seem to start shooting off the quarter sticks of dynamite. You can...

Well folks, it's that time again. I've lived near River park for almost 10 years now, and I realize that on the 4th of July everybody has to break out those illegal firecrackers and start shooting them off. What I really really really hate, is the sleep deprivation torture that ensues once you hit say 12, 12:30 and you really need to get to sleep. That's when they seem to start shooting off the quarter sticks of dynamite. You can call the police all you want. It seems like it's a canyon in this neighborhood and I don't know if these folks can even be found. Has anybody had any kind of luck dealing with this sort of thing? I've got little kids in the house and a disabled daughter. I would just like to get to sleep by you know , midnight Maybe? Thank you.

  • Sadly nothing stops them. My cousin lives way west near N. Oak Park Ave and W. Addison and it is actually a hundreds times worse because CPD and CFD officers live out there and they are the ones shooting them off. No one is going to stop a police officer or fire fighter from shooting off fireworks. I bought a window A/C unit and I blast it next to my head.

  • I see nothing wrong as long as people so by 10. Midnight on the 4th.

    Anne, I saw your post with one of the signs I hung. Thank you so much. I have registered with Lost dogs, Pet Boost and lost dogs North Chicago. I have looked at paws Chicago, anti cruelty, CACC and dog rescue on elston. I've posted all over the area and have hung out at Jensen Park. I am at a loss as to what else I can do. I work nights and also with the weather and being new here it has been a huge struggle. It seems no one has even seen her.
