Considering a move to Old Irving Park

Hello, I'm considering a move to the Old Irving Park area. Maybe Portage Park too depending on where I find a house. I'm wondering how diverse the area is, the commute downtown via train, etc. I've been in Ravenswood for over ten years and love the diversity (ethnic, mix of singles, families, straight and gay, etc.) and ease of commuting downtown (brown line or metra). I've driven around the area and visited some houses for sale but that does not give me the scoop on the neighborhood. I'm looking forward to feedback from people living in the area. Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Catalytic Converters

This past Friday evening a friend of mine had her catalytic converter stolen. When she filed the report she was told hers was the 4th in a week. We are around the Irving & Kostner area.

  • Careyann, why the Attorney General?! Reporting a catalytic converter stolen doesn't make the news, what YOU do about it does. You form a block club, you set up a community task force, you get proactive and you'll make it newsworthy. You'll also stop the thieves. It's not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.

  • Careyann Old Irving resident

    Hi Happiness: I like your ideas, they're very good ones! :)
    I bring up the Attorney General angle because this problem appears to be both growing and ongoing. If the bad guy's source of revenue (ie bad body shops or salvage yards) can be scrutinized, get leaned on, flow of business slowed down or stopped, perhaps that type of crime will become less appealing.

Irving and Pulaski

In the past few weeks the intersection at Irving and Pulaski has gotten really backed up in the mornings - particularly Pulaski headed south. Maybe it's my imagination...wondering if anyone else has noticed or knows if they changed the timing on lights or anything else that may be impacting. It's crazy how one light can kill your commute!

    I opened a 311 request and it was closed this evening with the following status:

    Will be interesting to see if anything has changed when I'm driving through there tomorrow. I'm not holding my breath but if so, someone deserves a reward for record time customer service. :)
