Loud boom at 3am?

did anyone else hear the very loud noise in the alley on the 1800 block of West Warner last night. Maybe an M80? only saw smoke.

  • We definitely heard it on Wolcott. Woke us both up. It sounded very close to our place whatever it was.

  • Stephen Boisvert Lakeview pedestrian

    I heard it at Broadway and Barry.

It's a long walk to 6000 North

I was at the mouth of Diversey Harbor at about 2:00PM today when my bicycle chain derailed. Before I realized what had happen, a nice young man diagnosed the problem and fix the derailment for me. I probably would have figured it out, but if not, I would have to walk back to 6000 North. Thanks again!!

  • sly-3 donkey wrangler to the stars

    nice to see there's some decent folk out there. make sure you pay that forward, homie.

  • I ride the whole trail sometimes and always carry my Ventura card with me just in case I have a problem like this.

Experiences with apartment searching in early spring/late winter?

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March. I have tried searching the web for information regarding what the rental market looks like during that time, but haven't really found anything.

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March. I have tried searching the web for information regarding what the rental market looks like during that time, but haven't really found anything.

We know that the October 1st lease starting time is one of the busiest and most fast paced rental seasons, but we may not be able to invest the time in August and September that is needed to snap up a nice apartment so we are seriously considering the April start date alternative.

So I am asking if any of you have any experience with the April start date rental market. Do there tend to be a decent amount of properties available in a variety of neighborhoods? Do the prices fluctuate at all? Is it silly to think that the market at that time won't be as ideal?

Any and all information or anecdotes you could send our way would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

  • Thank you all for the information. It really helps a lot!

    first, I have a one-bedroom I'm renting in OIP

    rules on peek times (April - June) - (Sept - Oct)
    if you haven't noticed, rents are CrazE high priced during those times. It's all due to demand.
    I've gotten a ton of people come by but they expect too much; free utilities, cable and parking in my garage. But I'm very picky on potential renters also.

    My house is huge (I live in the duplex upstairs) and some think they can still bring in pets (No Pets!)

    here's some pointers;
    a. are you prepared to move (first months rent + security, knowing you may not get your sec. from your current LL for 30 days)?
    b. do you want to move? you can still look, you don't have to commit - this gives you an idea on neighborhood and conveniences.
    c. what's out there (apts) that is of more interest than where you're at now?
    d. (and most important) will your credit check out?

    Happy hunting and good luck - I was a happy renter until 2010; what a great time to buy that was!

Hit & Run - looking for car

I was hit by a car this morning. A nice bystander took down the plates, but the drive took off before help arrived. CPD ran the plates but did not find anything, I want to find this driver. The accident was near Ravenswoood and Berteau. I am looking for a white Mazda CX7 with TEXAS plates (similar to CS8 S061, but apparently that's incorrect). Please let me know if you see this car in your neigborhood.

  • Thanks everyone. My attorney's office has contacted the Texas DMV. My witness got the plate right. They won't release information to the attorney w/o a subpoena or updated police report. So we're working w/CPD. (though it may take awhile) Thanks for keeping your eyes out.

  • LStone Western and Lawrence

    Kristin I am sorry you were injured and the driver behaved illegally. Sounds odd but it is encouraging to me to read how many people stepped up (and are stepping up) to help correct this wrong. I hold you in my thoughts for a speedy recovery and am grateful that Chicago turned out some really decent folks in the just the right place to help you through.

Bike theft (Claremont & Roscoe)

A heads up to cyclists in the neighborhood: There's a thief in the area that might be scoping out bikes from the back alleyways.

My roommate's bike was swiped early this morning- he had it unchained while he was getting ready for work. It's matte black, fixed gear, single font brake, with a rear rack mounted to the seat post. It also has distinguishing white tick marks (photo attached). A police report has been filed, but if anyone sees the bike around or sees a similar one posted for sale online, please send me a heads up. It's much appreciated!

  • JB in RV Chicago Homeowner

    I'm at Claremont and Roscoe....will def be on the lookout. Sorry this happened, unfortunate that we have to always be on the lookout for idiots stealing things.

  • Sorry man, bike thieves are scum. I feel for you.

Dr. Olivia Forys

I got a letter saying that my GP, Dr. Olivia Forys, is leaving her practice with Rush. I'd really like to keep her as my doctor, but the letter didn't say where she is going (if anywhere in Chicago). If anyone has information, it would be much appreciated. I certainly hope she's doing OK.

  • robin in WRP Tired, very tired

    Her contract probably prevents her from sharing this information. I would wait a couple of months, then check HealthGrades for updated office informaion

Looking for a Veterinary Clinic

Good Morning,

    I came home to find my kitty unresponsive and barely breathing. I put her in my arms and rushed to the first place I could think of, giving CPR over her mouth at stop lights, and drove to Cat Hospital on Irving Park. They took her in immediately, were compassionate and excellent emergency care. She was almost 19 years old and she has been with us ever since we picked her up at an apple farm in Michigan. I was able to contact my son in Australia so he could say his goodbyes and nurses were supportive during the transition time that followed as our wonderful cat passed on. I had taken her there only one other time many years ago but they treated her with kindness and quick response. My regular vet is a traveling vet and comes to the house and always spent a good hour when we had her check-ups, shots, or anything else. He rents space if surgery is needed. That's why I needed to go somewhere immediately and Cat Hospital was there for us. Our kitty gave us so much joy and fun times. We miss her so.

Car Broken into on Street

Our car was broken into for the second time on the street in front of our house. They empty out the glove box onto the car seat and floor but don't steal anything. They left behind the GPS, EZ Pass, car seats, random paperwork. Any idea what these guys are looking for?

  • C. McGeary Roscoe Villager

    A neighbor's car was broken into--driver's side window smashed--on the corner of Roscoe and Ravenswood around 1:30 a.m. today.

  • My car was broken into in the night between 7/21 & 7/22. Things were taken from the center console and my hood was popped open. Cornelia & Racine. Be careful, lock your doors!

Found Cat Roscoe Village

Found in Roscoe Village. Orange cat that's shaved on both sides (like a Mohawk). Very sweet and affectionate. She has a collar with a bell but no tag or microchip. Let me know if you have any info.

  • Andrea in Lakeview Andrea wants to be safe

    She is so cute. I hope you can find the owner. Can you let us know what happens? Thanks for helping this cat!

  • I see that cute kitty on Henderson and School all the time, near Ravenswood. I think her home is on Henderson, and her owners let her roam a lot. Am guessing she'd lead you there if you let her out. (The lion haircut is a recent addition).

  • Yeah the owner contacted us from our craigslist post yesterday and the cat has made its way home. You were right it's the cat from Henderson.
