Harlem and Higgins area. I just tried to catch a stray....small tan, 10 lbs?, very matted and limping possible Yorkie or Pom. It ran when I got too close. Anyone missing a little one? Called Animal control to look for it. Praying for a safe return to his/her home.

Basement flooding question

My husband and I are interested in purchasing a home in Norwood Park/Union Ridge, near Nagel and South of the expressway. The home we would like to purchase has a disclosure about basement flooding in 2013, saying the whole neighborhood flooded. Does anyone know if the sewers have been worked on recently to fix flooding problems in the neighborhood or is this a reoccurring problem that the neighborhood just has to deal with?

Any feedback is appreciated!

  • Buying a home in this area that does not have an overhead sewer is risky.
    An overhead sewer is the only full proof way you can guarantee not getting city sewer water back in your home.
    Has the city fixed or worked on the problem since 2013......
    Doubtful the city...

    Doubtful the city is broke.
    My previous home is right where you are looking ( on the 5500 block Neenah) and I remember this flood.

    If you have any other questions or if you purchase the home and are seeking plumbing advice don't hesitate to message or call me.

    I have seen the city installing new big tunnel sewers just east of Nagle Ave.
    Along Montrose and Oak Park ave as well.

Lost "African Grey" Parrot bird

My friend lost her African Grey parrot bird near Harlem & Talcott, on the morning of Saturday April 30th. The bird is fully flighted, and unfortunately flew out the door. He is very friendly, but does not like getting wet. Since it has been raining all day, we are hoping he landed close-by in someone's backyard and sought shelter from the rain. If you see this bird anywhere, please reply or call our friends at the Chicago Bird Collision Monitors...

My friend lost her African Grey parrot bird near Harlem & Talcott, on the morning of Saturday April 30th. The bird is fully flighted, and unfortunately flew out the door. He is very friendly, but does not like getting wet. Since it has been raining all day, we are hoping he landed close-by in someone's backyard and sought shelter from the rain. If you see this bird anywhere, please reply or call our friends at the Chicago Bird Collision Monitors at 773.988.1867 and someone will come for the bird. He is grey with a white face and red tail. Attached is a picture of what he looks like. About the size of a pigeon or slightly larger. Because he is tame, there is a good chance he will approach someone in the neighborhood. He is dearly missed, and if you can keep an eye out, I know she would be grateful. Thank you!

  • A lot of police officers live in the neighborhood.
    The post on Lost Pets on Northside FB page has been shared a couple times - hopeful the bird gets returned soon

    Notify vets and pet stores in the area in case someone calls in a sighting.

Bad behavior by Oriole Park

Saturday night about 8:00 I saw a black SUV I didn't recognize from the neighborhood pull up in front of the elderly couple across the street's garage. A tall blond guy got out, went over to the side of the garage and peed on it! He then went back to the car, zipping up his pants along the way, got in and did a u-ey and went back towards the park. I opened the front door and tried to get a license plate number but couldn't see well in the rain, and he apparently didn't see me.
