Parking Spaces for Rent?

Hey Everyone,

My Fiance and I just moved to Albany Park (Sunnyside and Drake) and parking is a nightmare. It has been taking 20+ minutes on average to find a parking spot every night. I'm looking for 1 or 2 parking spaces for rent that are close to our location.

  • It's really terrible over there, All the illegal spots even get filled. Welcome to the neighborhood and you may definitely want to use your bike for short trips!

  • There would be more parking spaces if cars would be ticketed for no city stickers. On one block example 3400 W Belle Plaine there were 3 cars without Chicago city stickers. On 4000 N Drake there was 3 cars without Chicago city stickers. There's always a truck on the 4000 N Kimball block parked over night without stickers not to mention all the trucks and non passanger vans parked on residential streets that are not suppose to park overnight on them.

Reliable Auto Mechanic?

Good morning neighbors,

Can anymore recommend a mechanic in the area for typical repairs and maintenance? Perhaps a place near Lawrence or Pulaski. Thanks in advance!

  • Royal Automotive on Elston/Central. Check out the YELP reviews. They don't lie! Awesome, friendly, honest company. My go to for years and through 3 cars. I've referred many friends and they all love the company as well.

  • Bville Cat Lady "ironic" pedant

    If it's Honda or Acura, Haas on Montrose just west of Pulaski is wonderful. Been going there for about 9 years. Trustworthy, Honda trained, and reasonably priced.

Saw a stray dog with red collar at Elston and belle plaine about 20 min ago.

Looked like a red fox. Skiddish. Would not come to me. Even when my dog was around.

  • Saw this dog yesterday afternoon around Montrose & Avers, heading south, in your direction. Would not come to me either, but apparently a lot of people are trying to catch this dog.
    Post to Nextdoor.com also, if you see him again.

Do any of my neighbors have a 'drop trap' I can borrow?

I am wondering if anyone has a drop trap I can borrow. I have tried to use my regular humane trap, but the feral cat I take care of has successfully eluded it, and he is now injured and needs medical care. They are a bit pricey, and just thought I'd see if a fellow neighbor has one I can borrow before dropping the $$. Thanks!

  • You might try PAWS.

  • They sell them on Amazon. I'm ordering one myself now for the ferals in the area in case I run into a situation and need it. Glad you brought this up and reminded me. I hope you find one soon and get your cat in for care.

ISO Pickup truck with good suspension

I have about 5 radiators I would like to take to the scrap yard. I don't have a truck, nor am I trying to spend much to rent one. If you want to help me load them in your truck and ride over there with me, I can give you a cut of whatever I get for the radiators.

  • Good sledge hammer.

  • some people still want to buy radiators, so consider selling them outright.

    I have radiators and one is still holding together with epoxy, but I would consider buying one if the size fits my application.

    what size height, width, length are the radiators and as far as you know are they in decent shape?

LOST Black Cat Lawndale Ave. near Eugene Field Park

Our indoor black male cat, Gogo, escaped last night. No collar or chip. He is normally friendly and bold but might be scared. He has his claws. He is fairly large and slender. We are on Lawndale close to Eugene Field Park, which is north of Argyle.

  • The OP posted this cat has been found.

  • ECM

    Yes, and thank you, everyone for your concern and help! Happily we found Gogo in good shape hiding quite far down the alley - he had been out 2 nights. I bought a collar and had a tag engraved for him today and will continue to keep him inside as always, but he is a determined one and does try to escape. I doubt that he learned his lesson!

    I've lived near Foster and Pulaski(just SE of it) for over 35 years. I will tell you that the safety levels are really on a block by block basis. Blocks with nothing but apartment complexes, you can expect more gang bangers and crime in general. I would stick to blocks with a better mix of homes and apartments. Just 10-15 years ago, shootings were very infrequent in this area. That's changed quite a bit however. Gun shots are a weekly occurrence culminating in much more frequent in the summer months. Being close to the Brown line is nice, however having to walk towards Lawrence and Kimball to get there has always been dangerous, more so at night. I would generally say around Foster and Pulaski, staying N and NW of that intersection would be safest but probably limited in apartment buildings.

Introducing Myself

Good Neighbors!

I would like to introduce my wife and I to the neighborhood. We recently purchased a rehabbed multi family property in the area and are actively taking on the role of live-in landlords and (naive) property investors. Coming from the burbs has been a measurable change but we are excited to set our roots here in Albany Park. Thanks for your time.

Cheers,
