Relocated car on Pensacola

There is a car on 5500 block of W. Pensacola that the city website says was relocated from 5600 block of W. Pensacola. No city sticker, but has plates and an expired Elmwood Park vehicle sticker. Grayish slate color Lexus 4 door. FYI, it has a flat tire. Just FYI for anyone who owns it it or might know who does. It has been there about a week. Thinking it might be someone who works around here since it has no city sticker.

  • It was not relocated in front of a business, it was relocated FROM in front of a business. Someone would have called it in as abandoned soon. I was trying to help find the owner.

  • O M G

    You're keep very busy over by there in Portage Park.

    Spot on, sister.Keep on keeping on.

Great restaurants in PP?

Hi, my hubby and I just moved to the neighborhood! Any foodies out there that recommend restaurants in the area? Thanks!!

    Hot woks on Pulaski, Smoque is in the same vicinity, Chicago Pizza on Irving Park

    And this isn't in PP but close Friendship Chinese is on Milwaukee just north of Diversey and it's phenomenal. It's couture Chinese, not the China Buffet type.

Garage Break-in

FYI - I'm at Menard & Grace. They broke in through by side door and took a very good snowblower.

  • Jake the Asswipe

    Drill a hole in the studs put a chain on things like snowblowers and bikes.

    Some good news. The section 8 housing in the 6000 block of Montrose has been raided the front door is a piece of plywood and the bed sheets used as curtains are down. I don't have to watch (and of course report) the same young men trying handles on car doors. Hopefully this has an effect on garage and vehicle burglars

Did you lose your dog?

I was just shoveling my front walk and a stray dog snuck up on me. Hard to tell the breed, because he was wet and muddy. Looked to be a male shepherd mix? Off white/beige 40-50 pounds. Seemed friendly, wouldn't come too near me. He has a collar on. Was headed East on Grace St. between Austin and Central about 3:15 pm today.

Lost Dog?

We just spotted what appeared to be a lost dog running around monitor and belle plaine. Our attempts to grab him failed as he kept running and we were driving. Dog is medium size, white with tan spots. If this is your dog please come look for him the weather is definitely too cold for him to be out.

Accident near Irving park and Austin

Hopefully everyone ok after the accident cop and civilian car

  • So Sorry

    Thanks for tipping off all the criminals.

  • Yes, our area of the city could use more patrol cars making the rounds. However, it's impossible to have a cop on every corner. It seems that I see fewer police cars just making the rounds.

    What would it take to get more police in our area? I suspect with the shortage of officers, they focus on the hot spots. However, we don't want to create more crime hot spots by letting down our guard.

    Please keep in mind that if you see something say something, even report via online forms to keep a record. I'm guessing that we need to compete with the noise of bigger crime issues around the city. However, we pay our taxes and need to make our voices heard.

    Also classic movie events are a must. Some folks may find it hard to believe, but the classic movies fill the seats. Last week I stood in line at the Pickwick Theater with close to 1000 people to see "Gone with the Wind". A couple years ago I barely found a seat at the Portage Theater for a screening of "The Ten Commandments". Then at the Music Box Theater I had to order tickets on line for a full house showing of "2001 A Space Odyssey" and about a year ago at The Patio Theater I attended a near full house showing of a silent movie "The Kid" with a live orchestra accompaniment. And then there's live entertainment. Yes, there can be a future for the Patio, the Portage and other remaining neighborhood theaters. Sorry I got so long winded..........

    Kapel, what a lovely post and a great reminder of why we should go to our neighborhood theaters!

Dept of Forestry chopping down trees

We've had no less than twelve trees removed from our street by the city. Does anyone know why?
It's so sad. I presume they are sick. I'd like to urge the residents on Mason Avenue to file city requisitions to have new trees planted in the Spring. This is a free service & you can even choose the species of tree! Call 311 or file a requisition on the city website!!!
