Garage Fire

Garage fire tonight around 6:00 on Monticello (near the intersection of Monticello and Wrightwood). This is the third garage fire in as many years, all within a couple blocks of each other...2+ years ago a garage fire a couple houses north of tonights and a year ago a couple blocks west...? Anyone know causes?

  • When I first moved into the neighborhood it was a 'gang' thing. It needs to be watched. Thanks for posting...

  • On July 4th, 2013 a garage burnt down a few houses down from me, on St. Louis near Parker, so also in the same general area. Given the date I assumed it was due to mishandled fireworks.

    Could also be bums squatting in it (starting fires for warmth or misusing the electrical connections) or just bad electrical to begin with. Oily rags from car maintenance + an electrical arc = boom.

Eviction or what?

Yesterday I saw people moving their stuff out of 4427 N Saint Louis, but now it's all just sitting on the lawn and the curb. Mattresses, desks, etc. Anyone know what's going on there? It's a bit of an eyesore.

    The rich get richer and the poor go broke. The system is designed to fail. If you see a break take it because you won't get that many.

Health hazard !

The sun is shining , birds are chirping , snow is melting. Hooray ! Let's go ride bikes and go for a walk around the neighborhood . Oh wait ...we can't because there is sooooo much dog poop and garbage everywhere that it literally feels like a health hazard . Thank you to everyone doing their part and going the extra mile to clean up poop and filth that isn't theirs . Let's get this place looking great and keep it that way .

  • any such name live, walk, & cook in logan square

    It's not because people don't have a bag. I've run out of bags and I go into the alley and grab something out of a recycling bin to dispose of my dog's business. It's because these people do not care, plain and simple.

  • It is so so disgusting. Giardia, coccidia. Let's just get all our dogs sick from one another. Those who can't pick up after their dogs are lazy and should not own them. I am so sick of these lazy dog owners, and untrained dogs, and untrained owners. Get over yourselves, pick up the poop and live like humans.

Badger hat

We lost a child's Wisconsin Badger hat today in Logan Square. The little guys stealthy and has a good arm. It also has sentimental value. If you see a small child's baseball cap, red, with a Wisconsin badger patch on the front, would you mind replying or pm me? Thanks!

CPD at Logan Square Blue Line

Anyone know what happened late Monday night?

  • I came home after the Bulls game (10p) and nothing was going down at that point aside from workers from the CTA gearing up for some projects. Lots of support vehicles were parked upstairs when I came out but no CPD. Must have occurred later in the evening.

    White people left Humboldt Park because they were scared of Puerto Ricans. Our next door neighbors in Norwood Park lived on Dickens before they moved to Norwood Park. Humboldt Park was also ripe for developers so many owners who were White no matter who lived in their building, burned down buildings that Boriquas lived in to sell the land to the developers after many Whites had FLED. Now, they left and the Puerto Ricans develop their own support systems but the grandchildren of those who left decide they like it and want it back so folks should just move. And of course the rising house taxes because of the stupid yuppies force folks out now. Hey, I know my history.

Snow Removal Requests Made

Good morning! Letting neighbors on the Spaulding/Schubert/Kimball blocks know I contacted the building owners about shoveling their properties today.
Hope everyone has a safe commute today.

Veterinarian in Logan Square

Hi neighbors! Looking for some local recommendations for a vet who could see my pup. Would anyone be able to offer any recommendations based on personal experience? Looking for an office with evening/weekend hours!

Thanks!

  • I just wanted to comment on Logan Square Animals hospital. My crazy dogs were rough housing and the little ones eye popped right out! I rushed her over and they were great. They were professional and caring. We discussed several options before surgery. They took great care of her and have been in the area for several years. Though the office looks old, it was clean.

    Your Pet's Wellness is taking over the former Logan Pets facility and will be running an animal hospital out of there.

Recycling resuming?

It's been almost a month since our recycling has been picked up. Does anyone know when it's going to be picked up again?

  • Loulu Me

    A six unit building is supposed to have private waste removal. Anything 4 units and under the city will do, otherwise it is on the building owner. If the city has been doing it, consider yourself lucky they didn't catch it.

  • Ours didn't get picked up as scheduled on 2/6 in the alley between the 2400 blocks of Spaulding and Kimball. I saw the Waste Management truck that day working one block west between Kimball and Bernard. We'll see what happens on the 20th.

Say no to dibs.

If you see garbage in the street, please throw it in a nearby garbage can. The street belongs to everyone. That said, if everyone shoveled and did a proper job (more than just enough to get your own car out but no more), dibs wouldn't feel necessary. Yes shoveling is work and we are very proprietary about our efforts but dibs is nasty, short sighted, greedy and down right un-American. Be a better neighbor.
BOOM

If every able bodied person would do a little more, dibs wouldn't be needed...IMAGINE!

Lost dog

There is a very scared brown brindle pibble wearing a black cloth collar running around the 3600 block of Wrightwood and Monticello. If anyone can help...

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    Call 311 so they can send an animal control officer to look for it.

  • Where you guys out looking for him on Monday?

  • I found him on my back deck, 3rd floor! 2/4/15 at 6pm. Took him in. Only a rabies tag so I had animal control pick him up. Sweet boy though.

Dog found- German Shepherd

My neighbor at Melrose and Kimball found a German Shepherd in her yard. She is unable to approach it probably because it is afraid. If anyone knows who this poor pup belongs to please let me know.

  • Ev

    Is this pup still in your neighbor's yard?

  • No - was wandering by Belmont and Central Park a couple of hours ago. The dog barked and growled when people tried to get near him/her. Dog is probably scared and cold. We wish we could have done something for the poor thing. It's so cold out.

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    call 311! they can send an animal control officer to look for it tomorrow, and they actually have the equipment to catch it without getting bitten in the process.

2700 N Spaulding Snow Removal Issues

One of the many reasons Fishman is a bad landlord. I've lived across the street from his property at 2700 N Spaulding, Spaulding and Schubert, for over 5 years now and he rarely, if ever, shovels these sidewalks. This, and the litter and dog poop he lets build up over the summer drive all of us who walk past it on our way to the Blue Line crazy. I feel taken advantage of by having him as a neighbor. He doesn't respect his properties and he doesn't respect the community.

  • What a bunch of whiners.

  • Mark Heller Logan Square & Chicago activist

    Hi Jen: actually Fishman does reasonable public way sidewalk snow removal at Schubert Square (northwest corner W Schubert @ N Spaulding) and nearby 2600 N Kimball (50 unit studios+1 br @ northwest corner Kimball at Wrightwood).

    Hi Jen: actually Fishman does reasonable public way sidewalk snow removal at Schubert Square (northwest corner W Schubert @ N Spaulding) and nearby 2600 N Kimball (50 unit studios+1 br @ northwest corner Kimball at Wrightwood). Your photo looking west along Schubert toward Unity Park shows snowblower did "some snow removal" = sharp vertical wall in snow @ right side of sidewalk edge = building side. The remaining sidewalk snow + pedestrian tromped slush shows, YES, they should have done followup clearing. The real problem there is CHA scattered site complex on south side of Schubert (southwest corner Schubert @ Spaulding) which doesn't ever clear public way sidewalks. And there's another "no shovel / never shovel" deadbeat at much higher profile location: 2556 N Kedzie Blvd = Boulevard Square southwest corner Kedzie & Wrightwood. Ground zero for Blue Line subway access & many many pedestrians. Lovely building with 4 cars parked in public way 24/7 on Wrightwood side. Deadbeat 2556 owner is also RED STAR LIQUORS, CAFE CON LECHE, and HARDING TAVERN owner. And $$$$ contributor to Alderman Rey Colon. Take your shopping, sandwich, beer, and cocktails patronage somewhere else until this deadbeat starts clearing snow from Wrightwood and Kedzie sidewalks around 2556 N Kedzie.

Moving to Avondale

Hey there! Just wondering what people thought about living around Belmont & Central Park area? My boyfriend and I might be moving here from Logan Square for a change of pace. I know Alice's and Late Bar are nearby but what other local watering holes are there? Any decent restaurants in walking distance?

  • Deb Karp Humboldt Park

    Avondale is growing fast and furious. Just closed a house there and my clients love Orbit Room and Honey Butter Fried Chicken. They are so happy there. There are also some great rentals available there too. I'm probably going to move there myself in the next 2 years!!

  • Frank Meats Patty just opened in Hot Doug's space on California and Roscoe. Went there the other night and had a delicious duck foie gras burger.
