Alterations recommendations in Logan Square

I have some jeans that need to be taken in a bit. I tried the place on Armitage and Kedzie, but the stitches didn't hold up for long. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance! :)

    Ruby's Cleaners on Logan Square itself is good in my experience.

  • Kelly B Beaucastel's Mom

    Smart Cleaners on Milwaukee at California. Across from Vas Foremost. Very friendly, reasonable prices and they do excellent alterations.

Where to sell used mattresses?

My middle-aged mother is moving to a smaller apartment this weekend and no longer wants, needs, or has space for her queen sized mattress and bed frame. I don't really want to go the craigslist route because waiting for a legit buyer (as opposed to a cashiers check scammer) and then trying to coordinate pick up is more of a hassle than I'm willing to deal with this weekend. I know there are used mattress stores but…? can't seem to find much info on getting rid of them, only buying them. It's a decent quality mattress, about 14 years old, cats and dogs in home. Suggestions?

    DonnaK: I don't know about your home insurance, but if that is correct that they consider each piece of damaged property a separate claim and thus a $1K deductible applied to each one, I would get a different company. If your home burned, would they consider separate deductibles for the roof and structure? Maybe for the land that was damaged from the fire? For your possessions? If you need a reliable, helpful broker to find a new affordable insurance company, then PM me.

    You say that the cost for the lawyer, plus possibly taking off time from work for the injunction (what are you paying the lawyer for?), is prohibitive. Tell me, how much money is it costing you now, with the repairs that will have to done, plus the cost to your health? If you need a better real estate lawyer, recently there was another thread asking for recommendations. Do a search and see those recos.

    File a claim against the developer, as chi techie said. You have the name and contact info, yes? Then do it. Stop complaining and perform some action (not just No Trespassing signs--that's passive). That is the only way you're going to get some relief.

18X22 ROOM FOR RENT
May 1st

I am looking for a non-smoking, peace loving, cat friendly neat individual to rent a beautiful room in an amazing Arts & Crafts building in the Fullerton and Western area; tree lined street, easy parking, tons of public trans, very safe neighborhood.

The 18X22 room is in the front of the apartment. It is very private, almost like having your own studio apartment. There is a faux fireplace, stained glass windows, ceiling fan, and the front of room is all windows, so lots of light. The apartment is on the second floor so it feels like you are in the trees. The room is large enough for sitting area, office, and bedroom area. Built-in book shelves. Beautiful!

The kitchen is huge and modernized, dish washer, walk in pantry, kitchen is furnished. The bathroom is also huge and very nice, clean, subway tiles, ceiling fan. The coin laundry is in basement. There is some storage available. OK for bike in basement, real safe. 3 units in the building, so the building is quiet. I have 2 cats. No more pets are allowed.

$650.00 per month everything included (rent, utilities, cleaning supplies etc. and housekeeping.) Phone & internet not included. $650.00 security deposit and references required. Apartment available May 1st (preferred) but could be as early as April 15th or as late as June 1st as well.

Cost for each unit will range from $1,200 for studio apartments, $1,400 for one-bedroom units and roughly $2,100 for two-bedroom units.

So this won't be have 'SRO' /single room occupancy zoning. And to me the units are not very MICRO...or cheep. (I think the article might be mixing up the 1000sqft 2 bedroom with the 1500sqft 1 bedroom).

To me this seems like a good fit for a busy corner right by the El. This should help spread the revitalization of Milwaukee Ave further northwest.

    Jerry, just because you didn't make that much doesn't mean there isn't a market for it. I can think of two guys off the top of my head that were making that much as union guys while I was still in college. They went in straight from HS so no debt.
    Personally, I would NEVER pay anything close to that. I mean, my condo is half that and 1.5x the size (lol it's small) of that. But hey, it's not for everyone. Would you rather have this person rent one of these new ones and spend there cash here or take up some of the rental stock that's already dwindling as that's their only option in the area and force someone out of a cheaper apt?

  • Jerry Cargill Photographer, Teacher, Live on Milwaukee Ave.

    I would say that it's better to get together with 2-3 friends and rent a floor of a two flat. Economically, that is the best way to go, and how most savvy young people have been doing it here as long as I can remember. Since wages have basically remained flat since 1980, any independent (ie:not reliant on Ps) young person has limited options as they whittle away at their college debt.

If you don't pick up that poop you might get flagged!

This topic has been addressed here ad nauseam, I don't think the offenders are reading Every Block- you know, pick up your dog poop! This afternoon, someone actually flagged a dog poop. I am not sure what to make of it- If you want to see this- take a look, I took a picture. (for some unknown reason, Everyblock pics are not going through)

https://www.flickr.com/photos/bartshore/16915159066/

  • Love the flags! You'd think the offender would be embarASSed!! In my neighborhood, some people pick up the poop in the plastic bags, THEN leave the bags behind. I don't like carrying my dogs poop around either~ I was picking up trash at the park, then stepped in dog poop~ I swear! A good deed never goes unpunished

  • CV in Logan Square Born and bred Sside, NWside transplant and love it

    Want to stop people from leaving dog poop behind? Take a photo of the offender, put it on fliers and post them all over the neighborhood. While it is an action, a flag doesn't connect the offender to the offending act. I love my neighborhood but I am sick and tired of having to tightrope down the sidewalk (and now, the curb!) to avoid dog feces. It was a nicer place to live before Logan Square got hot and started attracting lazy and inconsiderate dog owners.

Water Bill

I know this has been a recent topic, but my (metered) water bill arrived today. Last March, my water bill was $83.40. This March, the bill is $177.49! I sure hope my tenants understand when they get a big increase in rent this year. And no, I don't have any leaks.

  • You might want to install water saving shower heads (if you haven't done so already).

  • Our (single family) bill went up a lot last time because we used a lot more water with our whole house humidifier. Almost double the amount with the cold temps. Maybe that's just us, but we used a lot more volume this winter.

I was told that when a property is sold that the Cook County Recorder does not notify the Cook County Assessor or the Cook County Treasurer. I see just around where I live home owners exemptions are being taken by Developers who have owned the property over year and home owners that rent out their homes. If you look at the Cook County Treasurer site the properties are in the former owner's name and the developer have paid the lower tax because the home owner's exemption is still applied. Also does the assessment show the value of the old homes that have been majorly rehabbed and worth a lot more. How often does someone go out and look at these properties. Or people getting senior exemptions when it's not a single family home and has rental apartments.

Before they raise our property taxes shouldn't there be a more efficient and effective ways of determining what real estate tax is due on each property?. Instead of raising our taxes shouldn't they make sure everyone is paying what they are suppose to pay?

Are there any places nearby that sell mulch by the truck load? Or is there a way to rent a truck (Home Depot) and go get a truckload of mulch?

We've had the outfit that mows our tiny yards install and refill it in the past, but wouldn't mind doing it myself if the economics are right. And I've looked into going to Home Depot, or something similar, and buying by the bag and that did not seem like a reasonable option.

Does anyone know who owns the lot on the SE corner of Mozart and McLean or know how I can find out?

It's all nicely kept grass surrounded by a black chain link fence. There's a scaffolding kind of thing to hold up a banner on the corner, which makes me think it belongs to the church on McClean and California. Any ideas?

FOUND DOG - Small Female

I picked up a dog around Armitage and Central Park yesterday early evening. I brought her to Chicago Animal Care and Control because I could not keep her and that is where every site and every person I've spoken to has told me to look for my dog. Dogs at CACC dont have very many days before being moved into adoption status so I am posting where ever I can and putting up fliers in hopes the owners are looking for her. If anyone has information about the owners please let me know or pass this info on to them. We go down there frequently looking for our dog and can help out.

Where to donate unused medical supplies

looking to donate ten boxes of unopened catheters. Preferably local so we don't have to pay shipping. Google has only found several organizations, but they are out of state so we'd have to ship the boxes. Hoping to find a local organization.

  • Ericka S. Chief Sorting Officer

    Thanks everyone for the ideas!

  • Taze Maze I'm interested.

    If these leads don't work out I know that the Oak Park Township takes donations of medical supplies.

Anywhere nearby take small food donations?

Hi all, does anyone know of a food bank or agency nearby that takes donations of non-perishable food from individuals? I'm moving and have several grocery bags of items I can't take with me that I hate to just throw out.

  • Christopher House at Altgelt and Sawyer has a small food pantry for their clients. The building is open during school hours.

    There's Celestial Vision Food Pantry at 3023 W Fullerton

Guitar Lessons

Anyone got any recs for people or places? Just learning for fun, so looking for something affordable on the weekend, or weekdays after work.

Thanks!

    The Puerto Rican Arts Alliance gives free lessons. Look them up.

  • Our daughter takes lessons from Brian Riggs, a great teacher who comes to our house for reasonably priced lessons. Would be happy to share his contact information directly if you're interested in looking into him as an option.

Help me report 3510 W. Lyndale to the authorities.

The good neighbors at 3510 W.

The good neighbors at 3510 W. Lyndale have a pipe coming out of the second floor that runs down the house, through the back yard, and out into the middle of the alley (the alley between Lyndale and Belden, between St. Luis and Drake). The pipe is allowing some enterprising soul to dispose of waste water without tapping into the city sewer. They are basically dumping their sewage into the alley, which is why there are constantly filthy puddles of water all the way down the east end of that alley, no matter how dry the weather.

If you happen to live at a property that backs up against that alley, please call 311 to report these clowns. I've already reported them, but generally the more complaints the city receives, the faster the issue will be resolved.

    If you go to the top of the Everyblock page, the toolbar has a "show only" menu - if you click "Open 311 service requests" it gives you a list of some, but not all, service requests in your followed neighborhoods. It doesn't seem to show them for all city services, but it might be a good place to start.

    My old neighbors had the same setup, they did their own construction in the basement and moved the washer and dryer, then rigged a PVC pipe to have the water flow out the side of their house into the rain gutter drain on the side of our house/their house and we were flooded with dirty soapy water every time they did laundry. That's what's going on here. I bet they need a new sump pump because water isn't getting pushed out properly and maybe they can't afford it or just don't know any better.
