Loud Music

What is the policy regarding loud music in our neighborhood? This last Saturday I and the surrounding area had to endure live loud music from 5:00 to 8:30. This was blaring into my house and I had all my windows closed and AC on. I could not concentrate or watch TV. I could barely hear when I called 911. These people are repeat offenders when it comes to playing their music as I have called in the past. Aren't they fined for this?

    Eric it is never a little law when it has to do with the person who NEEDS it inforcedI have lived in my home which I own for 35 years.Have always keep it up but thinking about moving out of Chicago in a couple of years when I retire. Will sell my home whatever I get for it.The city is losing alot of it's good citizens because of the chaos going on in the city.Look around in your neighborhoods. It is happening in mine.Noise maybe a small thing to some people but when you can not enjoy your home WHY would you want to stay.

    Denise you are actually right. As a person who was recently robbed, when the neighborhood as gotten use to loud music and noises which they use to call 911 for but due to the lack of response they stopped, criminals then know what area to target. Lots of ppl are robbed by neighbors or ppl actually in their building for multi units. You turn music up loud enough no one hears the breaking of the door or windows smashing. Clearly that is not your experience but please don't dismiss others as even a possibility. Some of the most ridiculous things ppl hear are criminal genius bc no one believes it to be true or possible.

    The broken window theory does apply to nuisance behavior. What if the police did what the Orland park officers did? There would be less loud music banging down the street and some ppl would think about going into areas where they can't even play loud music in the car without getting a ticket. Ppl would second guess moving to a block where if a cop hears music from the sidewalk, they are ticketed and landlords are fined. Some of the biggest criminals in the city live in quiet burbs so this is not a city vc burb chat but about enforcement vs. non-enforcement.

Alderman Alert...more boarded up stores!

When are we going to know who is running against Alderman Balcer? The look of this neighborhood is lowering property values and making the neighborhood a joke.

Drive East on 35th from Morgan and count the abandoned and boarded up lots and buildings. Then make a left or right on Halsted. Even more boarded up and empty store fronts.

Who is running against Balcer? What associations in the neighborhood or ward are focused on business development? I am fed up with the lack of action. Its time to get together, put pressure and a plan forward and fix Bridgeport!

  • South Loop truth Poliical activist

    Balcer is not interested in carrying favor with Rahm. He will never go with the people, only follow Rahms anti cop pro pay to play agenda. They both need to the sooner the better.

  • South Loop truth Poliical activist

    Sorry should be only interested in carrying favor with mayor pay to play.

I understand rumors were flying at the CAPS meeting regarding the Fire Commissioner, Jose Santiago. It was alleged he was the brother of a current gangbanger in the neighborhood.

I am posting here to assure you that this is not the case and am willing to answer any questions or concerns you may have to squash this damaging rumor.

The FC was raised in the Little Italy neighborhood with his 3 sisters by a single mother. He joined the Marines at age 17, serving both active and reserves for over 31 years. He joined the Chicago Fire Department in 1979, working his way though the ranks.

Like many young men, bought his home on the northside, married his sweetheart and raised his family, while completing college and working a second job. His 2 daughters are currently both obtaining advanced college degrees.

He is a workaholic that believes in hard work and results.

False rumors lead to a lack of confidence in our leaders and a road block to goals.

  • Lee Ann, just curious what happened to Jose Santiago's wife, I never see any mention of her just his lovely daughters. did something tragic happen to her.

Cats need a forever home!

We have been fostering two adorable black cats that we grabbed from CACC before they were scheduled to be euthanized. Both are male, both neutered and have a clean bill of health. Both are approximately 1-2 years old and very sweet, but still a little shy. Would be perfect in a home without cats as they love each other, but seem to fear other cats. If you want to adopt them, please contact me! These guys deserve a wonderful forever home!

Elston Ace closed suddenly and permanently.

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20140708/mckinley-park/elston-ace-hardware-close-abruptly
I was horrified to return from vacation and find our Ace Hardware completely gone. This has got to be a nightmare for many homeowners and landlords.
Now where do we go besides Home Depot? Any suggestions for a hardware store (that is actually open when people need to go)?

  • Well, I was in the one on 35th a few days ago?! I'll have to check it out:( If it is closed, that sucks

  • The Ace on 35th & Calumet is not gone! I went in there yesterday:)

New storefront?

Does anyone know what may be opening in the NE corner of Archer & Damen. Looks like they're pretty close to finishing up that building.

    Well, at least it's not another auto parts store!

  • Haha. Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what else pops up on Rockwell & Archer besides the new gym.

Where did the patios go?

First I noticed Poncho Pistolas outdoor seating was gone (that was a week ago, so it maybe back and I did not notice) then last night I noticed that Zaytune's outdoor seating was gone. Is anyone aware of this? Or why?

If I had time this week I would just stop at both for lunch and investigation :)

  • jim m bridgeport resident 14 years

    zaytune's were there this a.m.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    As I mentioned above - I really do think that outdoor seating is good for the community. Outside presence, looking lively, all that. This is why the patios are important to me.

Help! I forgot to get my parking stickers!

Anyone on a zoned block have any of the new 355 stickers? I forgot to get them (I know) and have an out of town guest arriving Sunday. I just need to buy one off someone and will get some on Monday.

renepaquin77(at)gmail(dot)com

Thanks for reading and double thanks if you can help!

  • well i think it's a shame that you have to pay for them for one thing..it's just another scheme the mayor has to make money. and i suppose this goes on all year long? too bad..cuz over here where i live we only have to put up with that bs during the White Sox games so it's not every day even in summer, it's only when they are in town and playing at US CELLULAR.

  • Jennifer Bridgeport to Bucktown and some places in between

    Rene - I believe the zoned parking came into effect when people were taking up all the spaces on that block before/during games to go to Buffalo Wings & Rings.

Senior Citizen survey

Senior Citizen Survey
In 2012, Chicago was recognized for its service to seniors and gained membership into the World Health Organization's Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities. Researchers at Northwestern University are working with the city to find out how "Age-Friendly" older Chicagoans think their city is. They value your opinion as an older adult living in the City of Chicago. This survey should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete. You may skip any questions you don't want to answer, and your responses will be kept anonymous.
You can view and complete the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/chicagoagefriendlysurvey

Recent Activity In Known Brothel 35th st

I've noticed this week a lot of activity in the brothel that was raided back in May. I drive past there at least 5 times a day and this past week I've noticed several different men waiting to get in. I'm pretty sure that this place is back up and running. It is such a shame that it only took a month for them to get back into business. Authorities should followup on establishments like these especially since it's right next door to a daycare.

  • g...... resident

    Call 911 or 9th District Caps Office and report that activity has resumed. I did see a police unit passing thru and the officers noticed the activity too. People need to keep reporting this place until the brothel gets the message that they are not wanted here.
