Stranger knocking on my doorbell!

Hello everyone. Me and my family just bought a house in this neighborhood back in October. Feeling a little worried because this is the second time a stranger, Caucasian male, late 40's early 50's, stocky body built, around 5"7, beard, has rang my door bell. He claims to be a neighbor from the block, tells me he just got home from work and he found his mother death, the ambulance to her and needs money to get to hospital.

Hello everyone. Me and my family just bought a house in this neighborhood back in October. Feeling a little worried because this is the second time a stranger, Caucasian male, late 40's early 50's, stocky body built, around 5"7, beard, has rang my door bell. He claims to be a neighbor from the block, tells me he just got home from work and he found his mother death, the ambulance to her and needs money to get to hospital.

First time he did this was back in early October it was a Wednesday afternoon around 5:30pm, I told him I had no cash with me, he went on to ask me if i can manage a way to get him cash that he would pay me back. I told him I was going to call my husband, close the door. He left with in minutes.

Second time was yesterday 12/01/2016 at 10:40pm. He ran the door bell. My husband goes to the window and ask him what he needs. It was the same guy with the same story. "Hello am your neighbor, I just got home from work and found my mother death" before he could continue we told him we where calling the cops. He took off. all we where able to see is the he walk to the to the end of the block and went into the alley.

Cops showed up 15 minutes later but had not seen anything.

Please if this as happen to anyone or you know who this man is please contact me.

P.S. Be aware of this scam

Street Cleaning Over?

I see that, even though the weather is mild & there are piles of leaves on the ground and more still on trees, street cleaning in "our" neighborhood is done for the year! I can look forward to the usual sludge of brown mush on my curb come Spring. A coworker of mine claims the city is still cleaning her Ukrainian Village street well into November and the streets downtown are swept on a regular basis through winter.

  • This why we always clean the leaves off the street by us. Especially since the sewer is right there.

  • it's pretty tough when my neighbors' lawn service blow their leaves into the street and the alley

Leaving Front Door Open.

Anyone else notice this peculiar habit? People (mostly older) that leave their "inner front door" open behind their glass storm door. I've walked past several homes with people sitting in their front rooms, watching TV with their lights on & front doors wide open! I could understand if it was for ventilation, but the outer doors are all glass. No screens. I guess it's kind of like folks that never close their blinds at night.

  • Maybe they like the view? That's all I can come up with.

  • With everything that's been going on, it just seems to me like inviting trouble. People, be careful, please!

    Nothing wrong and if a bad guy comes in shoot him
