Stop Signs Knocked Over

I witnessed two near accidents today at Moody & Berteau. Tried to call 311 and was told to call back due to a high call volume. Called 16th District and was told they would report it. The stop sign at Mobile and Berteau is also down. When does the City act? After an accident or when a child gets killed?

  • A&K

    Just feel better knowing who ever hits the sign does damage to the car. A few hundred dollars in repairs is a nice reminder of what not to do. Unless it was a junker and they just don't care. Then that's a shame.

  • There was a tree blocking. Stop sign by my house and everyone kept blowing through it. I sent alderman culvert in a Facebook message and 3 days layer the tree was trimmed. And he followed up to make sure it was done.

Perkolator Coffee House Promises To Perk Up Irving Austin Business District

...across Irving Park Road, hope to open the new Perkolator coffee house and cafe at 6032 W. Irving Park Road by the end August, and breathe new life into the business district along Portage Park...

"This needs to be done," Joe Basilone said, referring to residents' demand for a coffee house near Irving Park Road and Austin Avenue. "We owe it to the community who have rallied around us."

Ald. Tim Cullerton (38th) announced earlier this week that the long-vacant and neglected building next to Perkolator at 6040 W. Irving Park Road was being renovated and would soon be home to a restaurant "featuring an eclectic variety of cuisines."

  • I like Katherine's suggestion. The area around Irving and Austin is lacking a place to get delicious treats with my coffee. I like to drink my coffee black but pair it with a good doughnut. Dunkin is trash and really, I get better baked goods at A&G for 25 cents cheaper per.

    Anyway, yes, I'd like some baked treats for me to get fat on in winter while sippin' that java.

  • Could you do outdoor seating when its nice out? How do you plan on getting the word out? I think if you have a few things for toddlers to play w/(like a lil' corner) that will bring in the moms. These are just a few suggestions. I agree-adding on food/treats keeps people buying and coming back. Good luck! We are lucky to have both of you in the neighborhood.
