Albany Park Crime

Lots of sirens at Pulaski and Argyle- listening to the police scanner and it sounds like there were two people who were possibly stabbed. This would be on the same block that an apartment building was tagged with a bunch of gang tags a little over a week ago, and that had an arson a few years ago.

  • @ Herecomestgeman. I am right behind you, we are leaving in a few weeks after living here for a number of years. The move date can not come soon enough. AP is going downhill fast, which is sad to see.

  • AP seems to go up and down from year to year. This year has been pretty low, hopefully things will turn around. Don't blame anyone for leaving, though. Been here long enough to see the ebb and flow so I have hope.
    In regards to CAPS meetings, how do you know poster is not involved?

Refugees find peace tending global garden in Albany Park

It could be a scene from a faraway land — women in long, colorful skirts harvesting mustard leaves, a man with a weathered face and a traditional salwar kameez beneath his suit jacket squeezing between rows — chopped, fermented daikon spread out to dry.

But it is a scene off Chicago's Lawrence Avenue.

It could be a scene from a faraway land — women in long, colorful skirts harvesting mustard leaves, a man with a weathered face and a traditional salwar kameez beneath his suit jacket squeezing between rows — chopped, fermented daikon spread out to dry.

But it is a scene off Chicago's Lawrence Avenue.

Tucked into a quiet corner of the city's bustling Albany Park neighborhood, the Global Garden Refugee Training Farm — the only refugee farm in Illinois — is tended by natives of Congo, Bhutan and Burma.

Covering slightly more than an acre is an exuberantly fertile urban garden. Lush tomato, mustard and cilantro plants jockey for space; sturdy squash vines climb over trellises made of dismantled cribs and baby gates.

The whole story:

Slots Available at an Amazing Home Day Care

Just wanted to share that the home-based childcare provider where I send my son has a couple of slots available. I can't express how kind and wonderful this couple is. Affordable, too. My older son went for three years; now my baby is there. Such a loving environment. Located at Lawndale and Wilson. I was so grateful to have found them that I thought I'd share with other parents out there stressing over childcare options. Send me a message if you want more info.

rude & agressive developers, going door-to-door on Richmond Ave

They called out to me, while I was out walking with my child. They called to me from a across the street, saying they wanted to "ask me a question" -- something I associate with those infuriating guys who used to ask women if they wanted a free haircut? Anyways, I...

Yesterday two men were walking around our neighborhood asking about homes that might be for sale (for them to flip). One had red shorts, the other carried a clipboard.

They called out to me, while I was out walking with my child. They called to me from a across the street, saying they wanted to "ask me a question" -- something I associate with those infuriating guys who used to ask women if they wanted a free haircut? Anyways, I was a little suspicious, and we were late to meet with friends, so I replied by asking what, specifically, they wanted to ask (and I slowed down, but kept walking).

Then one of them shouted, very aggressively, "Well, if you'd stop walking, we could f***ing ask you!!" right in front of my 6-year-old. I was horrified, not just at the use of profanity, but at the aggression directed towards me. I said nothing else; just turned and walked away. I have to admit, though it was broad daylight and there were other people out and about... I did not feel particularly safe.

Thanks to an inquisitive friend (accompanied by her large dog), we found out that they were developers, looking for properties to flip.

So, neighbors, just be aware of these guys. I'm not sure what's wrong with the one who shouted at me... so just everyone be careful.

Mayfair Market - Pulaski

What's going on with Mayfair Market? The last year it's been a pretty sad example of a grocery store but the last couple of weeks they aren't even restocking their shelves.

Are they going out of business?

  • I've noticed that too. They seemed to have been doing well with the owner switch. Used to see heavy involvement from the owner checking out all the details. Now I never see the owner at all.

  • LTD AP resident

    Yes empty shelves for the last month and a half and now even empty produce displays. No fresh herbs other than cilantro. They had only a few avocados for sale this weekend and a sorry selection of lemons.

  • t neighbor

    My husband went there Saturday to get tomatoes and peppers and the condition of the produce was so awful that he left and went to Family Fruit Market. Too bad. He used to really like going there.

Garage Repair

The garage for my building is falling apart and I'm looking for recommendations on someone who will do a good job fixing it. It's a large brick garage. I've been getting a few quotes from different places, but would love to go with someone who has done this type of work before and that has a good reputation doing a good job. Has anyone in the neighborhood had something like this done or can recommend someone?

    You might try Peoples Home Improvement, the owner Leonard Belsky is very honest and reasonable and a really nice guy. He built a beautiful back porch for us. Do not get Craft Master Construction, they are very dishonest and not a good job.

Neighborhood Elevation

In his discussion about what inspired Neighborhood Elevation, Artist Anthony Lewellen talks about walking the streets of North Mayfair and finding ideas for design from the buildings, trees and parks of our neighborhood. Here's a map of North Mayfair, circa 1922. The streets are all there, but not all of the homes have been built. Is your home on the map?

Ice Cream Soda?

Is there anyplace in the vicinity of Albany Park or nearby that serves real ice cream sodas?

Real ice cream sodas, served in glass, made with high pressure compressed seltzer water. Not a float, like a root beer float.
