    I like the fact that DNA arrives in my emailbox daily with neighborhood news, but it would be nice if they actually practiced some journalistic effort and zeal.

    They posted the same 10 pics from more than 2 weeks ago - that's not up to date nor is it news since we have already seen them.

    I, as an interested reader, would have liked to see current pics which would tell the up to date story. Hey DNA, have you ever heard the term "yesterday's news"? Are the stages still up blocking usage of the park? NO. Is the fencing still
    up ? NO. So now I am left to wonder if the litter is still there and if the grass has started to grow back.

    A 'before" and an "after" pic would tell the whole story. DNA is really missing the opportunity to be a bona fide news source. Too many stories are told using the easy or lazy way - not enough using both sides of a story nor using the basics of the 5 W's.

Garfield Park Heroin Hut

Seems CPD will take another black eye. A Heroin hut has located itself in Garfield Park and operates uninterrupted for years.

CPD has knowledge of many drug areas that are active and destroy the neighborhood; yet most conduct business as usual every day WITHOUT any fear of being arrested by CPD.

What is the real reason open, flagrant drug dealing goes on in inner city areas??? Why doesn't the Government shut all of this down?

Why doesn't the government promote urban renewal as it has done in many neighborhoods? Safety is a primary requisite for neighborhoods to get better.

Is it the leadership? Some adjacent wards have had good progress these past few years because of good leadership. But not in 28.

    The bottom line is Alderman Jason Ervin, 11th District police Commander, Superintendent McCarthy and Mayor Rahm Emanuel all know what's going on the West side. We call in, we send in film, we attend meetings and we complain and still nothing is done. These open-air drug markets are operating in broad daylight and the CPD knows everyone of them. You can't drive an entire city block on the West side and not see an open-air drug market. This should be considered a state of emergency.The city gives the criminals a pass while the good citizens suffer. And why isn't our Alderman putting extreme pressure on the police Commander, Superintendent and Mayor? And why isn't the Mayor and police Superintendent putting pressure on the states Attorney, Attorney General and The Governor?

    The ONLY way to change this problem is to vote out the current politicians in office. From Alderman Jason Ervin on up! Get rid of them and elect people who have a proven record of wanting to change the status quo.

  • gpblight 15 Yr East Garfield Resident

    Voting is a powerful revenge. Too bad more don't use that powerful tool and get rid of those who do not serve them. Those who do a good job should be rewarded by being re elected. But seems like the lack of voting assures those who do a bad job can just stay in office for decades.

Riot Fest - Irresponsible use of Humboldt Park -

3. This Riot Fest is a reckless use of the park for the organizers to make money and take away the use of the park for citizens that live in the neighborhood.

4. As for myself I have contacted the Alderman and I will protest all the way to city hall if I have too. This type of festival belongs in Northerly Island away from neighborhoods where small children go to bed at 8pm and there is plenty of parking.

  • My family plans around the fest. We do not move our cars all weekend - instead we sit outside and enjoy people watching all day as we barbecue. The best part is in the evening when fest-goers walk in front of our house and say "thank you for having us in your neighborhood".

  • Talk w/your Alderman's office to see if you can attain a list of the repairs and then observe if they are properly addressed by the contractors Also, having a list will determine what improvements have been made "above and beyond" damages, as promised by the promoters.

    The building painted white was for sale for about $100,000 a couple of years back. The word was that it had been condemned and would require demo or serious structural work.

    The front of the building, the tip of the triangle which is near Augusta and Grand has some really cool Art Deco features, prime for recognition and restoration, or the landfill depending upon your religion.

    It has been a hide-out for homeless in past years, and once in awhile we have to call the city to get the building cleared and the shabby boards back up.

    If you went to Burnett and had a business plan, I bet he would listen to your idea and help you in whatever way he could.

Anybody else experiencing the cat and mouse game of patrol walks, element moves; only to return say 3-5 min later? Seems this is a tremendous WASTE of taxpayer $$.

No curfew violations written. No kids taken to their parents. Is this where training starts on the streets at age 1-7?

Anybody else got stories of ineffective FOOT PATROL?

Lets talk about it and send the link to the Police Board.

    You're right Blackworld, not everyone allows their kids outside at all hours to disrupt and cause general mayhem. Shocker! I can only imagine what your kids are out doing, if you consider it okay for that behavior to go on. Guess you thought you were safe, acting like that over in GP, but guess what, the times, they is a 'changin'. That behavior is being noticed and it's not appreciated in neighborhoods where people actually care about their community, their property and their neighbors. And if you DON'T allow your kids to behave like that, (which I'm sure you are going to immediately be defensive again, and claim it's a race thing) then, you shouldn't have a problem with people wanting to make sure these kids are okay and being provided for in a loving way. Any kid that wants to be on the street for all hours of the night, probably has a terrible home life and it should probably be looked into. Susan Mullan? Give me a break......make things up much?

Hello all. Looking for some help/advice. I applied on 9/17/14 for an apartment at 1356 N Kedzie. I talked to the "director" in charge of approving new tenants before submitting my application to verify that my income/credit/rental history was sufficient to be approved. I do this for every place I rent as a safety measure to avoid wasting $$ on application fees. After being advised that my application would be approved, I handed over the $70 fee along with ALL off my personal financial information, including SSN's.

10 days have now gone by and every time I call to check the status of my application I am given the run-around. "The system is down, I'm waiting on an email, I'll call you back in 15," blah blah blah. The last time I called I asked to speak with a supervisor and was hung up on, with my follow up calls and messages being ignored.

Any input or help would be greatly appreciated. I saw some less than stellar impressions of this address and property manager AFTER if applied and started to wonder. Obviously now things are getting suspicious. Thanks.

  • Ms. Carl, As I stated to your husband, there was an unfortunate delay in processing your application which I apologized for. I agree that we should have responded quicker but I completely disagree that we were shady in any manner. To characterize honest mistakes as "shady" or "suspicious" is not fair and not correct. In any event, I will mailing out your app refund check today and wish much success in your apartment search. Thank you.

    I am a property manager for 5 units. I use a Transunion service, (www.rentlaw.mysmartmove.com). I explain the process to the prospective tenant. First, I do NOT ask for any personal information (SS#, bank account numbers, etc.) on the application. Rather, the service requires the potential tenant's email address. Second, the tenant gives the approval for the credit/background check directly to Transunion after I set up an account for that particular tenant. Third, I receive a notice that the information is ready, and I read it, and make a decision. Again, I have no personal information, one less thing that I don' t have to take care of (to keep that info safe), but more importantly, I think that's a selling point on renting with us!

    Ask your potential landlord about this service. Better yet, the cost to the landlord is very inexpensive. I do add a small administrative fee. Still the total cost is about half of what you paid, Audrey Carl.

    Landlords: Use this service!

    DISCLOSURE: I am NOT involved with this service in any way. For me, it's so much easier than having to do them myself, plus, as I said, I think it's a bonus for potential tenants.

Polka Eatery 1000 N block of California

Since the KnockBox closed :-( I don't have a coffee spot close to me. I saw that the Polka Eatery had coffee so I stopped in. Super cute but very new, they just opened up. While I was getting my coffee I decided to get some breakfast and it was awesome! Two cheddar pierogi, half of sausage and two eggs. It was amazing and only 6 bucks.

anyone had luck qualifying for a zone sticker in a situation like this, or getting a zone extended to cover the last 10% of a block?

    it's where pierce runs into kedzie. the whole street is walk-up single family homes/2-flat buildings except for the 2 larger apartment buildings (including mine) at the end of the block by the park. those buildings are between the alley and kedzie, which is the only part of the block with no zoning.

    there's a small restaurant and insurance company at the bottom of the apartment building opposite me; only other non-residential there is the national guard building.

    i don't know if being in such close proximity to the park requires the parking around it to be open/free.

    thanks for the info on the petition and IDOT study! in the meantime, i found this app called "lifeline" that i can use to monitor any longer-than-desireable walks to back to my building.

  • I live on a street that is not permit, however the aldermans office was able to give me a letter to bring to the city clerks office. With this I was able to get the zone for the surrounding streets to be on my city sticker. Moreno is my alderman, so I suppose that helps? Only problem is if you renew your sticker online it wont include the zone if it was done with a letter...so you'd have to go to the clerks office to renew your sticker.

East Garfield Park Cleaning Up Yet?

    And yes, $44K is a STELLAR price, but there are still a few drug selling, gang and ne'er do-well issues that come along as a "rider" of sorts. And in regard to this particular property area, issues abound. But again, its up to the individual. Do you have a what it takes to pioneer?

Very sweet, loving little lady! She turns over for belly rubs. Bad eye and teeth. Very soft. If anyone recognizes her let me know, ill be taking her to Anti Cruelty in the next hour or so. Also if anyone is looking for a sweet small older dog she'll be there if they accept her :)

Nanny Share in Humboldt Park Area

My husband and I are looking for a family to join or to establish a nanny share with us in Humboldt Park or surrounding area starting December 1st, 2014. Our daughter Lilian will be 4 months by then. We both work full time and would need a nanny approximately from 8 am to 6 pm. We are open and flexible to different hosting options. Our family is bilingual German-American, and a nanny who also speaks German would be great but is not a necessity.

Please let me know if you are interested.

Thanks,
Corinna
