Home appraiser

Anyone know of a good home appraiser who is familiar with the area who they have had good experiences with?

    I recommend Karim Omid Hosseini, a friend of mine for more than 15 years. He lives in Avondale. karim_hossein@hotmail.com If you'd like his mobile #, private-message me.

    Sorry, I just realized you asked for info on a home appraiser. Hosseini is a home inspector (knowledgeable about construction and repair issues).

Loud explosions in ally off Pulaski and wrightwood

There have been several very loud explosions in our ally. Much more than regular fireworks. Called 911. Nothing is on fire but whatever they are blowing up is not acceptable. I'm used to hearing fireworks and what not but this is just ridiculous. Any info folks have on this new late night, summer past time would be appreciated.

  • The fireworks complaints every year here welcome summer like the annual complaining over dibs and shoveling snow welcome us to winter. .

  • Which Ally, anyway? Ally Sheedy? Ali Mcgraw? Muhammad Ali?

Lost Dog Sighted: brown, older chihuahua type dog near Funston Elementary

A smaller, older tan chihuahua dog was seen. He/she looked lost and was walking along Central Park and Armitage. A team of good Samaritans were able to heard him/her into the playground of Funston Elementary. We shut the playground gate so at least he would be blocked from getting back on Central Park. He definitely was lost, skiddish, seemed nervous. We tried to lure him but he left down McLean from the playground, heading away from Central Park. He was wearing a collar with blue tags.Pakr

  • Tell you neighbor it's very important to continuously call animal control. They don't hold them very long.

  • One of the good Samaritans said he also saw three smaller dogs in a little pack earlier that day, running around. He pointed east of the school

Needed: stop sign visibility at Kimball and Bloomingdale

The stop sign at Kimball and Bloomingdale is hidden behind the viaduct pillar. I've nearly been hit several times. It's 1 block from a school. I've reached out to Alderman Maldonado 5 times, the 606 and Chicago Department of Transit (with the citation code that it is not properly visible per their own regulations) with zero luck of adding paint, rumble strips or flat lights to add visibility. Any insights on how to get a simple safety update?

  • Making a mere stop sign visible will accomplish nothing. Drivers do not care about stop signs. You need an oil pan buster class speed bump installed and then drivers will pay attention.

  • Judy Weisenski

    They should puta stop sign at bloomingdale and central park... trying to go southbound on central park from bloomingdale there's a dip in the road, high wild flowers on the corner and the viaduct for the trail... super dangerous

Violin lessons

Any recommendations for violin lessons for a four year old in the area? Unfortunate, ACM only has one teacher in their Logan Square/Avondale location and it hasn't been a good fit.

  • Check with DePaul University. My niece had lessons there when she was younger.

  • k-dad West HP homeowner

    Music House! They're on California near Augusta and have great teachers, great group and individual classes, and a great vibe. My son started there when he was about 4 and still loves it.

  • The school I work at has a partnership with Bucktown Music. We have had good experiences with them. http://www.bucktownmusic.com/

Two dogs spotted by Central Park & Palmer: Tuesday 8:30am

I spotted a light apricot colored curly haired dog, medium sized, laying in the grass in the sun.

Near the dog was another smaller dog, looked to be dark chocolate brown with perhaps some lighter tan spots. Maybe a larger chihuahua?

Just a PSA. I always stop for lost dogs and couldn't grab them today. They weren't running so they were safe and lunging at the moment.

  • Ellenf owner of apartment build. We need dog park

    can you catch them?

Congress Pizza Property Sold ?????

I've been told that the Congress Pizza property at Milwaukee Ave and Campbell has been sold. Today I noticed a large drill in their parking lot and that at least 2 holes where drilled. I assume that the drilling has probably something to do with sampling of the soil such as was done on the site of the twin towers. I'm wondering if anyone in the neighborhood has any idea what is happening at this site.

Boys Youth basketball for summer - help?!

Hi there! I'm looking for a boys basketball camp for the summer, 2nd / 3rd grade (for a 12 year old) --- there were a few online when I googled but I have no idea which ones are reputable and would rather go off the fine folks of EveryBlock than my googling skills..... Any feedback would be so appreciated. If there is one located closer to downtown/loop that's even better... But anything helps!

Thank you :)

Looking for someone to connect natural gas BBQ

We had a contractor install a natural gas pipe on our deck and am now looking for a qualified person to connect it to a webber natural gas bbq. Any suggestions please?

  • Doesnt the grill have a quick connect line? I can plug/unplug mine from the line any time. Or did the contractor not install the quick connect adapter?

  • Victor Perez small business owner

    I can take a look at it for you.
    you just need the proper adapters.
