Block meeting 2400 n Sawyer

There has been a lot going on lately. I grew up on this block and recently returned. Do people want to organize and make a plan to discuss the issues and solutions?

  • Isaac Walmart Logan Square, Avondale

    What is a block meeting? Is it for the surrounding area or literally just 2400 block?

  • I am open to suggestions

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    Talk to the alderman's office. Ald. Rosa seems like a decent guy who would like to help.

Police Action on Leland between Monticello and Central Park

There was a small crowd gathered last night around 9pm. I heard there was a shooting in the alley, south of Leland, and someone in the crowd found a bullet casing on the sidewalk on the north side of Leland. Has anyone heard anything further?

  • I live right there and there were 4 gunshots on the corner of the alley between central park and monticello where it meets leland and then 2 gunshots about 30 seconds later from what sounded like the south end of that alley. They spent an hour or so looking for bullets last night. 6 gunshots total, 2 very distinct guns.

Obvious Gang/Narcotic activity...

Ok, why is the gang lounge, sorry...convenience store, at 4000 N Drake still open? Let's do the math. They take LINK, sell grape cigars, sell .25 cent bags of flaming hots, and the owner drives an Audi convertible. The sIMON cITY rOYALS are always dressed in blue and black giving hard looks at people. You never see many people other than bangers in the store. Seems like they need a license check, wonder if the Alderman agrees. I've seen little ziplock out front too, candy maybe?!

  • freddie c employed

    Is it the Q-Stop? I've taken the Lawerence bus to/from work for over 16 years and that store has been a menace and an eyesore for a l-o-n-g time. If nothing else the cops could fine the owner for underage drinking in the parking lot.
    About TJ, thanks for posting where to find his "biography", What little of the 25 million that guy has left after blowing it on useless cars and homes, he's probably broke.

    Cejón, it's true that there is no way on earth that some folks on EB will ever like me. It has to do with what I say, not on who I am because nobody knows if I ever observed any religion and nobody knows where I was born so I don't give anyone a reason to pre- judge what I say based on anything other than my words. I even changed my profile photo because it used to show my gender, age and racial profile (and my transportion medium). Now I'm an anonymous genderless Struwwelpeter. Judging somebody for their words is fair. I earned their hatred. I take ownership. What is unfair is being put on the spot because of your religion or because of where you come from. As I said, at this point I'm investing this time for the ones who understand and appreciate the comments. The thing is when people grow up being part of a mainstream culture they tend to become oblivious and they take too much for granted. As far as the haters that some people acquire on EB they are usually based on their own narrow-minded rhetorics. The problem is that in our society some people are put under scrutiny even before they do anything or even before they open their mouth just because of what they wear, how they look and what kind of religion they observe. For every narrow-minded comment I see I'll spend valuable time responding because I want the ones who understand my words to know that not everyone thinks in certain ways. Why do people harass others by constantly reminding them that a perpetrator belongs to this or that group? If they really respect law abiding people, why do they mention a specific religion and not others when crime happens in every possible culture, nationality and religion?Narrow minds don't understand socio linguistics but I know whom I'm talking to. I'm not trying to convince anyone. It's impossible. You're right. I agree with that.

  • Cejon Life's good here

    Montse, also if they go beyond the freedom if speech and you feel offended report them to the administrator by clickin the unneighborly button. I understand, EB is a place for people to come together and join forces against crime, help each other and make friends .

Why is my backyard a final resting place for squirrels?

Twice this summer and once last summer I have found dead squirrels in my yard. They are super flat, like all their bones are dissolved but the fur indicates they haven't been dead long. Is there some poisoning campaign going on by the city? A vigilante neighbor? It's just weird they keep picking my yard to peace out. Not to mention really gross to clean up. Anyone else have a pet cemetery in their yard?

  • If fed, it shouldn't be a problem for them.

  • My vet told me that once the poison metabolizes in the rat, the poison is done. My dog thinks her summer job is to hunt rats in the backyard every night, so I asked.

Overnight Dog Care

My 7 year old fur baby (chihuahua) is in need of overnight care in September. Up until now, we have been fortunate enough to have my parents around to watch her when we go away (or we stay in pet friendly hotels) but for our upcoming trip in September, we have neither of those options available to us.

Can anyone recommend any boarding facilities and/or any dog caretakers to take care of our pup?

    If your dog likes other dogs, I highly recommend Tucker Pup's in the West Loop. The dogs all get to play together for 12 hours in a big room (small dogs and large dogs are in different rooms). They sleep at night in individual crates. My dog used to be traumatized when I took her to traditional kennels. But she loves Tucker Pups, and is exhausted for a couple days after I get back, which is a big bonus. Last time I left her for over two weeks and she was happy as could be.

    Clara will sit your dog at her house. The email address on her website is wrong. It's best to just call her.

    My dog is high stress and sensitive in unfamiliar surroundings. Clara is so great with her. I was amazed at how quickly and easily my dog took to her.

How late is too late for a backyard party on a weekend night

I'm asking because 1. I'm annoyed at the beer pong that's still happening after twelve because even with ac on and windows closed- I can still hear everyone and everything. 2. I don't know if I'm being unreasonable and if it's totally cool to go on late as long as it's the weekend. 3. I like hosting people as well and don't want to disturb my neighbors and would like to totally understand the decorum of not pissing people off 😜😜

Is anyone else without water?

I'm on the 3400 block of N Central Park where they are doing the water main construction, and have been without water for several hours now. Called 311 multiple times and the last response I got was that they came out to turn the water back on at 10:40 pm and noticed the valve switch was broken.. But didn't put in a request to fix it! I now have 3 open tickets with the city but no time frame as to when water will be restored.

  • Tas mania Devil Irving and california

    Gee I wonder why they were annoyed one phone call is enough. Do you think constantly calling to repeat the same thing over and over again is going to fix the issue faster? Seriously get a grip and have some patience

Figured out when she slipped out again (about an hour later- fml) where from and will be making the adjustments this weekend. Until then she plays in the backyard on a leash. 😫😫 thank you all for your help!

    I see both sides here. I've lived in Logan Square since before it was hip and it gets wearying to hear the same crime questions. I'm a single woman who's never had a problem getting a date so I must be passably attractive. I have walked alone all over LS at all times and taken the subway late at night regularly. Other than an annoying wolf whistle here and there, no one has ever bothered me. White, black, Latino, Asian.

    Yes, there is crime in all of Chicago. Unfortunately, in LS it's blown out of proportion. However, if it makes you nervous, this probably isn't the place for you. Who wants to live their life looking over their shoulder at all times? I'm just always aware of my surroundings at all times. I've loved so many different things living in this thriving neighborhood. And, as odd as it sounds, the few gang members I've met keep an eye out for me as I travel regularly. With the restaurants, bars, easy access to downtown and O'Hare, its been ideal for me.

Less a chance of anything bad happening to you out and about than getting into a car accident any time you get into a car. Sure, we all know people who have been in accidents, but that doesn't stop us from driving. The statistical likelihood of anything actually happening to you is so low that it isn't worth worrying about.

    WoW, what a combative person DAKIN/JWHITE is. I wasn't there so I can't comment on what transpired. But I CAN say that the neighborhood was a S#iT storm of I L L E G A L fireworks. My dogs were a mess! Luckily my area was a little more tame, it ended more around midnight for me, but a 'family' venue staying up till weeeeeee hours of the morning (past 3am)? Not cool, not cool at all. My family has owned an apartment building for over 35years so if you want to pull rank, I think I win. I've seen trash talking nasty uneducated reactionary people come and go in this neighborhood, and all I can say is you can't let them win, call police, call police, call police on every suspicious activity they do. As soon as this woman got in my face, I would be calling 911 PERIOD! She seems like a very difficult person to deal with. It doesn't matter that she may work in health services or how much money she makes, bottom line she is an aggressor. Aggressors are not contributing to society in a positive way, and it's sad that her 17y.o. son has THAT as an example. My 18y.o. nephew lives with his (single) mother in our building, and guess what??? His curfew is 9pm. And, she doesn't keep him out past midnight if he is with her. It's all about setting positive RESPONSIBLE values. And NO shooting off ILLEGAL fireworks is NOT giving your child responsible values.
