Lost outdoor furniture cover

One of my sofa covers blew off the roof this morning during the heavy wind gusts. I'm located in the 1000 block of N. Honore. I've searched a few blocks to no avail. The cover is a beige/khaki colored cover. If anyone has seen it, could you please shoot me a note. Thanks!

Make sure to lock your car doors!

Today, at around 5:30PM, I saw 4 young black guys (late teens/early 20s) walking down the street (near Division and Western) and going up to each car and checking if they were open. They were looking inside each car and checking to see if there were any valuables. I called the police and gave a description.

Boycott Humboldt Park!

Humboldt Park and Roberto Maldonado have made it clear they don't want anyone in their neighborhood that are not like them. Do not spend money there! Maybe, when they feel the squeeze they will start to accept cultural diversity!

  • Humboldt Park itself is not the problem, a group of political bandits on Division are the trouble spot! Be selective! Stay off the strip between Western and California on Division. Don't buy beer, smokes, food or BS on Division St.!

    Great family homes for sale far enough from Division St. to be safe from the non-sense!

  • James M. Roy I live here.

    Don't boycott, buy more. Everyone responds to dollars. Vote with your dollars.

Rooftop break ins

Just a warning that as the warm weather approaches, there has been a neighborhood increase in school kids (usually high school) climbing fire escapes and enjoying the amenities and private rooftops of neighborhood residents. Smoking marijuana and utilizing private residences in plain sight of other neighbors. Often they are even wearing their school uniforms. Genius.

Private cameras work wonders.

Just thought to post because they also try gain access into apartments from the rooftops.

Displacing neighbors

It'd be cool if it was as easy to get rid of a house of yelling, loitering, thieving, shooting, overdosing, fighting neighbors on a certain Augusta alley as is it to remove 30k people from a park.

    Call 911. Enough complaints it will be brought up at a CAPS meeting. Once the Police are sick of going to the same address things will start getting taken care of. Call your Alderman and have them go after the property manager for housing a nuisance. Finally since it seems like a crappy landlord or property manager file housing complaints via the 311 website and calling. These could include too many people living in a dwelling to building code violations. I will not put up with crappy neighbors and if they make my life hell so will I. Hope this helps.

My roommate called me at 1:30am last night nearly in tears; she works at a bar in the suburbs and usually comes home between midnight and 3am. She has no problem parking in our neighborhood at this time and has proven to be pretty great for her first two months of living here but last night was very different....

She was within a block of our apartment (right at the corner of Haddon and Paulina) and pulled up to another car as she positioning herself to parallel park in an open space. She noticed a man that she only described as vagrant looking who was watching her, drinking something out of a brown bag. As she was about to pull into the parking spot, he walked up to her car and pulled a gun out of his pocket, pointing it to her head. She threw the car in drive and sped off.

I'm so relieved she was able to react appropriately and drive off but I know most people may not be as lucky or have as great of a knee-jerk reaction. She opted to spend the night at her boyfriend's apartment in Logan Square but was so shaken and asked me to lock up everything.
She has filed a police report and I'll check in with her later today but if anyone has any information or has had this happen to them, please comment below or send me a message. I know this is the first situation on my street that has made me super uncomfortable to go out at night or park in my neighborhood and I just want to throw a word of warning out to my neighbors to be careful.

Thanks everyone, so glad I have somewhere to post this!

    Ouch--I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend you but obviously I did. I don't work for the city, I am not an alderman. I'm an everyday resident who's lived in this neighborhood for 17 years. I don't disagree we need more cops and I am angry that our station was closed thereby taking cops off the street longer when they make an arrest and need to travel to the 12th district far from here. But the reality is the city is broke. It's just that simple. And until we can straighten out finances there's no way to pay for 1000 cops in the near future. As far as the park, I was just answering your concern about spending money on parks that could be used for cops. It just can't be done legally. Now if you want to propose the city levy more taxes for the city services funds and less for the parks you can do that. But I don't know if the city is maxed out on tax rates or not. That's something that would have to be researched.
