Flat Tires Bell/Addison

Heads Up: woke up to two flat tires on the passenger side. As I was walking down the block I spotted another car with the same problem. Unlikely that it's a coincidence.

  • CJL ...

    I hear that it was over 60 cars in total bt Addison and Irving, Western and Damen.

  • It happened on west Sheridan east of Broadway. Saw a couple of cars

Lost Quadcopter

I lost a RC quadcopter(helicopter) at Horner Park. I fear it may have gone in the river, but if anyone that walks, jogs, works, or is by that area and sees an aprox 1'x1' RC quadcopter with orange and green propellers please contact me. Will pay a reward if returned. Or call 847-370-1684

  • Dustin, so glad that we were able to get your quadcopter back to you! It looks like a lot of work went into it. Love to see you fly it sometime.

  • Dustin Dalziel lost quadcopter

    Thank you again so much. Yes the time spent on it made it so much more valuable to me. I would love to show you and your family how it flies, maybe we can meet at Horner Park this coming weekend? FYI, what you found is called the "Warpquad" if you were so inclined to watch a YouTube video of someone flying one.

Does anyone remember the bar on Damen called "Augenblick"?

If so, I am desperate to find the artist who created the poster for them. It would be a gift to my husband, as this was the location of our first date 18 years ago.

  • Great idea.

  • Ed in Northcenter, you are correct about ownership and about Ric Addy. I was a bartender at Augenblick. The large painting on the back wall was done by Shane Swank. He is a very prolific artist currently living in Wisconsin.

loud banging, thrashing, booming

Hi. I live in a coach house behind Addison, between Hamilton and Hoyne. Every night, there are extremely loud noises at any and all hours of the night. They are absolutely not animals. Once in a while, there is a boom that shakes the foundation of the house. After wearing ear plugs with my head next to a large floor fan on high, I was still woken up by tremors.
The neighbors all claim that they don't hear anything, but...

Hi. I live in a coach house behind Addison, between Hamilton and Hoyne. Every night, there are extremely loud noises at any and all hours of the night. They are absolutely not animals. Once in a while, there is a boom that shakes the foundation of the house. After wearing ear plugs with my head next to a large floor fan on high, I was still woken up by tremors.
The neighbors all claim that they don't hear anything, but I don't see how that is a real possibility. One night, after the earth shook me awake, I walked outside at like 4am and started thrashing on the garage next to our house... loudly. I literally took the side of my fist and started pounding this old loose garage with bursts for about a minute. This was a warm night with people s windows open. Nobody stirred. I walked around afterwards for about another min. Nothing. Another night at like 3-4am, I walked out into the basement of the two flat we're attached to with tenants inside, slammed the door behind me, started rummaging through our storage, walked back outside, slamming the door behind me and slammed the fence under their bedroom windows repeatedly. I talked to them the next day and they said they heard nothing.

Now, I am not a light sleeper. I used to live above a bus stop on Ashland and Irving park. I slept like a baby over there. Either this neighborhood has gone rogue or the house is having night terrors.

I've been sleeping at a friends house recently so my blood pressure doesn't start boiling.

This is ruining my life. The police aren't going to do anything (talked to them already). Cameras are too expensive. I have a strong feeling it will be a complete waste of money.

My fiancé can confirm the noises.

  • Joshua Your friendly neighborhood cynic...

    Cars are bad, mmmkay?

  • Sunflower6876 Loving life in Lincoln Square!

    I know there was a house that was demoed on Leavitt between Grace & Irving Park. I don't think this happened in the middle of the night, and is a bit too far from you. Maybe try exorcism?

Recommendation for a good mason?

Hey all,

I'm looking for a recommendation on a mason or masonry contractor to give me some bids on re-sealing my building. It's one of those early 2000's split face block construction jobs and is in need of a re-seal. Having a hard time finding someone. If anyone has ever re-sealed and has someone who did a great job, let me know!

  • We own our own family masonry for over 25 in Jefferson Park. Licensed and insured with the city of Chicago. Give the owner of the company a call direct Micheal McDonald 773 203-3019

Martial arts/Self defense

Hi,
Does anyone have any good, affordable recommendations for a place in the area to take martial art or self defense classes? Thank you!!

  • My son (6) has been taking classes at ATA in Ravenswood and I really like it there. It's not too "beefcakey" if you know what I mean, and they also keep running Groupons (There's one right now, look for Go2Karate) so you can try out a bunch of classes for next to nothing ($20 for 10 classes or $30 for 16 classes, uniform included).

  • Mike Eugenio Tandang Garimot Martial Arts & Wellness

    Hi, i am in Lakeview area and I teach Filipino (but bot limited to it) martial arts at Tandang Garimot. We have different price packages based on how often you can train. Check us out.

Pipe replacement all night??? Berteau between Lincoln & damen

Did this all night noise bother anyone else's family. I lost $$ for 2 shifts since I got no sleep, had to call off work and my son went to school on very little sleep :((( thanks

  • Bill 4500 N Wolcott 25 year plus resident

    This is sad best so far was from Chicago Dan! welcome to north center / Lincoln square/ ravenswood .... I miss the old hood!

  • First world problems. AT&T do not dig up the street during the middle of the night if it was not deemed a urgent matter. Take that from someone with over 25 years experience working in the industry. @ C L Moffat. All telecommunication providers are required by law to provide working lines for emergency purposes. Ever heard of 911? Who do you think maintains the hardware for that? Get over it people.

Who Wants to Start a Jobs Group?

Hello. Before coming here, I was at NextDoor.com where recently I started a Jobs Group for the North Center neighborhood, a group where neighbors may post that they are either looking for work or hiring for work or have any such leads in general -- basically with an aim toward tapping into the so-called "hidden (unadvertised) job market". So far I have detected very little interest if any in such a group on NextDoor. Would such a group interest anyone here at EveryBlock?

Chicago North Center Jobs Group may leave Nextdoor.com, remain on Facebook

The Group was based on the simple notion of neighbors helping neighbors, with the idea that job seeking should never be a lonely experience. Among other things, the hope was to tap into the so-called "hidden job market" at a neighborhood level.

The Chicago North Center Jobs Group is still on Facebook, currently at 65 members: https://www.facebook.com/groups/679871012048118/ I may remove "North Center" from its name, maybe replacing it with something representing the broader Ravenswood/Lincoln Avenue area.

Stolen Halloween Decorations

We have been decorating for years and someone stole a wooden coffin with creepy hands that my husband made right off of our front lawn. I am so disappointed.

  • yoohoo Northcenter resident for 20+ years

    That stinks. We've had pumpkins stolen from our front steps in years past. Sometimes people do stupid things. Sorry.

  • jasper1055 Roscoe Villiage

    It's sad, but, I finally just stopped decorating out front. I got really tired of the drunks stealing, smashing and destroying everything....then having to clean up a trail of pumpkin for a block or so. I guess it's a reality of living on Addison.
