Loud Dance Party

What is up with the loud, all-night dance parties that seem to take place at Wolcott and Hubbard? I've been hearing them for over two years now, and I am starting to get tired of the nonstop noise on Sunday afternoons/nights. My husband and I joke that there's another rave happening, but seriously, we cannot enjoy our weekends outside when these parties take place. We're a few blocks away; I really feel for the people that live closer to the party.

Santa Maria Addolorata Church Fight

This is the last straw Santa Maria Addolorata church holds noisy parties every Saturday night from May to the end of September. Loud music and kids running outside past close to midnight, I've called 311 more than once to complain. Last week the noisy party ends with a flood of people fighting from the party taking in to the middle of Ada St. Police were called but this type of partying just have to end once and for all.

Car Break-ins

There have been a series of car break-ins in the 1500 block of Adams and the 1400 block of Monroe. A spare tire was stolen off of one car. We realize that this low level crime but keep your eyes open for the bad guys.

Thank you...

  • PJ: Thank you for your comments and cross posting. I thought that West Loop and others may be interested but my technical abilities do not span to that.

    I also feel a bit helpless in providing advice to avoid having your car broken into if you lock it, park it under lights, do not leave anything visible or of value within it.

  • The rear covered spare was taken from my car in the 0-100 block of North Elizabeth Street last Sunday between 10PM and 7 AM

Three scams are currently back on in a big way. I wrote and posted these but for some very odd reason Every Block deleted them- So I am re-posting again

1. a man (or a group of two) will come by your car-examine it for dents and claim to be able to repair it on the spot

2. A "roofer' stops by-claiming he noticed damage on your roof that can cause immediate problems and offers to repair it right then-for a reasonable cost.

3. a duo (usually) rings your bee-and wants to show you how you are being ripped off by Com Ed and Peoples Gas. They show you copies of Com Ed and Peoples Gas "bills" and how they can beat the prices you currently pay by signing on with their third party provider.

    I meant "ring your bell"---sorry.

  • Thank you for the heads up!
