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). Your photo looking west along Schubert toward Unity Park shows snowblower did "some snow...

    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.

Suspicious characters near Kimball/Milwaukee/Diversey

Just wanted to let you know one of my neighbors has seen a couple of guys circling our building and loitering in our parking lot for the past three days. One guy even tried to get in my car. She called the police, but just wanted to post notice here so people are aware. She said it was two Hispanic males, likely mid 30s around 5'8. Both were wearing dark clothing, one had on an orange hunters cap and the other was wearing a black beanie type hat. Please be aware and always report suspicious activity!

  • Please KEEP calling the police...ask for 'special attention' which means the police cars drive that area when they can...

  • descriptions are similar to the ones who broke in a home per an earlier post. keep calling police anytime you see someone acting suspicious.

Hybrid-friendly auto repair?

Our Toyota Care ended and we're looking for a place in Logan to take our Prius for regular maintenance and also minor paint repair. TIA!

  • Zapata always has good reviews.

    Green Wheels on Western by North Avenue specializes in electric and hybrid cars. Brought my Prius in for sevicing and came away feeling like they knew their stuff. Pricing was fair and attention to detail was obvious. http://www.greenwheelschicago.com/

    I belong to nextdoor.com and one of my neighbors posted to check our alleys because 5 of their garages were hit. While driving down Fullerton I noticed closed business had graffiti when I couldn't see address I went down side street and saw another closed business garage's tagged really bad. I took pics got addresses went home and one of my neighbors also got tagged. I reported all 3, got a text from 311 when the reports were closed all within 3 days last week. I didn't asky neighbors permission because I was afraid they would continue on our block. It's our community we should all report graffiti whether our property or not, that is my take on it. Thank you

  • LD

    Also please know that graffiti blasters need it to be a certain temperature for them to be able to remove graffiti so may get a bit back-logged after this week.

Canine ACL Surgery

I was told my dog has a torn ACL...where is the best place to go for this surgical procedure in the city? I heard that UIC has a veterinary clinic that can do it but the numbers I've found don't call back. Has anyone out there ever personally been through this surgery with their canine? Prices seem to be all over the place
place. Thanks!

  • Thank you ag8451. My post is yesterday's. Please retype the website. Yours says "none posted". Thank you!

  • Artus, the person who posted the tiggerpoz.com site has the screen name on here with the name "None". I was saying that website is good that he/she posted. "None" above posted: .http://tiggerpoz.com it is helpful to look at all alternatives to TPLO. I still suggest getting an ACL tear surgically fixed but a partial you can rest a dog on but it must be strict and with meds. Good luck!
