    "Some people find it unsettling to discover a beleaguered community standing firm, head high. They expect such people to cower and cringe. Too many Americans still adhere to the false notion of Manifest Destiny, feeling entitled to move anywhere they please and uproot anyone living there who dares challenge their prerogative."

Masonry/Tuckpointing Recommendations?

Anyone have anyone they recommend for tuckpointing? We have had some leaks during some of the recent storms along the facade of the building. I've reached out to a few places that turned up via a cursory google search, but am curious whether anyone has had any positive experiences they care to share. Thanks!

    Parapet wall repairs are expensive, but unfortunately often necessary for safety purposes if they are in fact leaning. Just curious, if you're not sure whether you need to have that done or not, or is it clear that Star was selling snake oil in trying to get the work done?...

    Parapet wall repairs are expensive, but unfortunately often necessary for safety purposes if they are in fact leaning. Just curious, if you're not sure whether you need to have that done or not, or is it clear that Star was selling snake oil in trying to get the work done? If they did that is super unprofessional, obviously. Anyway, if you need help determining what does and doesnt need to be done, options include hiring a home inspector to make the judgement for you. OR, as I have seen some homeowners do with success, simply call up a mason, tell them you are not hiring them for the work but you will pay them $100-200 or whatever to visit your house and help you decide on the scope of work that needs to be done. So that contractor has no skin in the game, per se.

  • Our parapet wall isn't leaning anymore than any other vintage building on the block. It wasn't a matter of safety, it is structurally sound. He claimed that it was for repelling water (um, it's going to get wet if it rains).

    Star also wasn't chosen because their quote was really complicated and had additional line items that seemed petty.

I have notice a homeless man near my home at Division and Damen that has been sleeping in my parking spot in the alley. I saw him trying to open a few cars and today he pushed my side mirrors in on my car. I believe he may have a mental disability. I don't think he means much harm, but he is abusing my car and my girlfriend does not feel comfortable going down to leave for work while he is sleeping there.

I saw him at blue line eating muffins like cookie monster, and spitting the mouth muffin into the air at the people seated outside. He also drinks out of the garbage around the neighborhood. I don't want to call the police, but I don't know of much other option.

Has anyone else notice this man? He is Caucasian, 50-60 ish, long white hair, about 6' tall. What do you recommend I should do to move him out of our cozy parking spot?

    Everyone please call the police when you see him doing anything illegal and also go to your caps beat meeting. He is in and out of psychiatric holds and lives in the neighborhood with a family member when he's not either in jail or on hold. He seems to be getting worse the last month which is unfortunate I don't know what can be done other than monitoring his illegal activity. This would include sleeping in your parking spot and messing with your car. If you call 911 mention to the operator that he is known to get confrontational and violent and has been arrested recently. I feel bad for the guy and even bummed Him a cigarette once but he's really not doing so well.

  • If he ever comes near me or my family in a threatening way I am slapping the shiat out of him
