Question re Lawndale and Grace area

I have family from Minneapolis moving down to Chicago and they're interested in a unit near Grace and Lawndale. It seems like most of the trouble areas are north of Irving Park up toward Montrose and then east of Elston Ave so I'm wondering if any neighbors south of Independence Park could please share your opinion on that part of the area. Much obliged!

  • Nick in Irving Park Condo Owner

    I am not far from Grace and somewhat further east. We have been in the same place for over a decade. We love the neighborhood and feel very safe. I'm not sure there is a neighborhood I would prefer over this one.

  • Careyann Old Irving resident

    Thanks everyone! They ended up taking a place in North Center so I'm sad they'll be a little farther away from me (walking to and from IP would have been fun) but happy they'll be in a very nice area.

Shots fired?

Did anyone hear shots fired around 0500 Sunday am? Kimball and berteau maybe?

  • Yes. It woke me up. I thought they might have been fireworks. Thought there was a slight sizzling noise and the cluster was pretty close together. Never sure, though!

"Red flagged"

These guys came to the door never showed id never said what company they were from. They said that my house had been red-flagged for a new meter. Both of my meters are new within a year so I knew they they were fraudulent. I called ComEd and People's Gas. Both companies told me to report them that they do not have any affiliation with them. So I called and reported it to the police. I posted the video in the ring neighborhood four Irving Park but it won't let me post it here.
