Gun Shots near Walgreens at Armitage and Milwaukee

Did anyone hear gun shots or see anything odd around 7:00 or so at the Walgreens??

  • No didn't hear- I'm nearby there. However, on the Logan Sq Neighborhood Watch page on FB, there was posting that there was a shooting by Logan Theater on Milwaukee. "Car blew through the intersection, no lights on, turned right on Wrightwood after cutting multiple people off. Silver Scion, no back window." about an hour ago

  • I haven't seen any articles, but there was chatter about this on the Bucktown neighborhood watch page on facebook.

Found an ID

I found a picture ID for a Marissa along the 2500 block of N. Harding Ave. Looks like maybe for a nurse or student. Message me if it is yours.

  • Maybe you can try searching Linkedin to see if she has a profile there? Or Facebook? I recently returned a wallet to a foreign exchange student by searching the Internet and was able to find an email address for him.

  • if it is a driver's license or state ID, you can actually put it in a mailbox, or take it to the post office, and they will deliver it to the person on the ID.

Abondon car

Does anyone who's Hyundai Sonata is parked on the 2800 block of north Hamlin it has been parked there for two months now and the street cleaner is not cleaning the street and tickets are piling up on it. I just don't want to call city until I have asked around to find the owner.

  • spidershrek ~ The same exact thing happened to us with our stolen vehicle. Our car was towed to the pound after accumulating four tickets. Now we have to go to 4 separate hearings to clear these tickets.

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

    Email your local CAPS office, that was the only way I got results with a vehicle that had been sitting for FOUR MONTHS on Spaulding just south of Fullerton (complete with weeds growing between the pavement and the curb, no joke). The vehicle had tickets piled in the backseat, front seat, and of course on the windshield, and yet it sat. I filed abandoned vehicle reports, nothing. Contacted the alderman's office and a month later, nothing. Finally contacted CAPS and CC'd a bunch of local news investigative reporters and magically that worked.

    Best of luck.

Does anyone have an opinion on flooring with large dogs? We bought a house in Logan and we need to put new floors in. I was considering doing the wood look porcelain tile for durability. Has anyone put it in their house? I've also heard bamboo floors are very tough. Looking for something that doesn't scratch easily. Thanks!

  • Melissa peck armitage and Central Park

    Thanks everyone! You've made my decision easy!! Porcelain tile it is!

  • Agreed with everyone else above-- we had bamboo and laminate wood before and both were atrocious with both dogs and anyone who enjoys wearing high heels--- the flooring is way too soft. Divets and scratches galore. I will only do hardwood or porcelain now, way more durable!

Rash of thefts 2100 spaulding

Yesterday, Monday, between 11am and 1pm someone broke into my car and took the radio. They knew what the were doing to. No damage to the dash or to the door. They hit the window with some kind of tool on the side and it shattered it. A neighbor saw a car similar to mine sitting in front of it with loud music playing, she couldn't see anyone due to a tree blocking her view. Last weekend our neighbors house was burglarized. Saturday night a car was stolen and a few weeks back someone broken into a number of garages.
Becareful out there and if you see something call the police

Has anyone else experienced this?

My wife was home alone when a 12-14 year old boy knocked on the door. He asked to pick up paper (pointing at the paperless grass) or cut the grass in slightly broken English. My wife said no thanks and he ran off down the street seeming to yell for someone he was with. Seemed curious so I am interested if anyone has witnessed this. Thanks.

Shooting on W Palmer

Anyone have any more information? I was home all day yesterday and live 1 block down and didn't hear anything.

  • Middle of block
    Between Drake and Palmer. White suv drove through and shot at young man running. He appeared to be hit but not
    Critically. My husband was waking our dog on opposite side of street. Police told our neighbors it was gang related. Not sure about any other details.

  • My 11 Year old witnessed this from our 2nd floor apt ... And it's so scary how in bright daylight this is happening ... This gangs need to be reported every time they are seen they are not welcomed on our neighborhoods and a lot of these thugs don't even live in the area ... We need to be very alert and call police even if it's the smallest things so we have more cops on our area ...

Loud music and gun fire

I live in the 2700 block of N Drake.
I called 311 & 911 at 12:30 -1:30 am regarding loud music and gun shots. I made 4 calls and never once did the police show up.
It makes sense why crime is so high in Logan Square.

  • Steve I East Logan Square since 2005

    If this is happening, call a couple of your neighbors, too. Usually it takes 911 calls from two different people to get them to show up for nuisance complaints (loud music, etc.).

  • Steve I East Logan Square since 2005

    Living in the 14th District, it might take more than that... a neighbor of mine had a 24-foot boat on a trailer parked in the alley behind his garage for four days over a holiday weekend. Four days! When an officer showed up on the fourth day, he thought it had been there for a few hours or maybe overnight.

    After we explained that it had been there for days, it was gone in a matter of hours.

  • Sorry..and sometimes 911 doesn't even answer but please keep calling ..it does work...

2400 N Spaulding police activity?

Does anyone know what's going on right now (6-7pm) on the 2400 block of N Spaulding? Tons of cars, lots of men. I asked what's going on and they claimed to be the police who just made an arrest. But they are unmarked cars and not uniformed. Called 311 and they said there's nothing going on in this block. Hmmm

Not sure what to do...

We recently look down a smallish tree in our yard ourselves. We have tons of branches to get rid of. New to this homeowner game, do I just bag them and throw them away, or are there services to pick it up? Thanks!

  • Steve I East Logan Square since 2005

    This changed recently - Homeowners need to call 311 to have landscape waste picked up.

    It is a separate pickup so that it gets composted instead of going to the landfill. I have done it in the past and they are pretty responsive - usually a day or two. I don't know about trees but it seems likely the 311 operators will have some info.

  • Oh wow Steve I, when did this change? Because I recently (I guess it was in late June) cleaned up some small weed trees and put it out in the alley in bundles as previous and it was gone on garbage day.
