4200 Block of North Drake

Perhaps there's a reasonable explanation but lately there have been quite a few very expensive cars park on this block. I'm talking a Hummer, a Porsche, a Bentley and a Lamborghini. The last three are parked there right now (well, the Bentley is a half-block down). Sunday morning there were two guys outside 4224 or so blasting rap music (at 9:45 on a Sunday morning). Maybe in the suburbs I could see people actually owning these cars... but a Lamborghini? Here?

  • But that is illegal if you live within the city limits. So you those cars can get ticketed.

  • So help me with this Chi.girl30. If these are your family cars, and you reside in our neighborhood, and these cars are parked on the street all the time... why no city stickers?

Kimball and Foster back to normal

Now that the new library looks to be so near to completion, does anyone know when the bus stops at that intersection will return to the way it was, and will we get our kiosk back, so we can stay out of the winter wind?
By the way, if you haven't seen it already, it looks like it will be ready within a month or so. And, it is very nice looking! Quite an improvement to the area!

    I'm not going to say that the new library doesn't look good.

    I'm not going to say that the new library doesn't look good.
    But I wasn't then, and am not now, convinced that what we needed was a completely new building.

    I don't feel that there was anything really "wrong" with the old one that couldn't have been improved with some electrical and tech updates.
    Much as we as residents (and businesses) do with older buildings we live and work in.
    And early 1960's isn't that old; the building wasn't difficult, just a big open box.

    The new building doesn't seem much larger. It really doesn't seem to have much more parking (not that we really needed it in pedestrian-friendly Albany Park). I'm counting only five new bike lock-up posts.

    What the library system needs is better materials and programs; something that probably could have been achieved in the older structure.

    I've been in some of the newer libraries and was shocked to see just a few older computers available with a cumbersome system if (God forbid) you wanted to make a printed copy. Hopefully, this kind of head-up-the-b*tt thinking has been addressed.

    I view this entire building bonanza as little more than a Daley-Era corruption kickback mess.
    Again, not that it doesn't look nice.

  • Well, Dan on Monticello, I very much disagree, and am thrilled to see this change. The old library was built in 1952, over a gas station, during a, pre-environmentally concerned era. As to the parking, I counted approx. 16 spaces, I didn't count the bicycle parking area. The old building...

    Well, Dan on Monticello, I very much disagree, and am thrilled to see this change. The old library was built in 1952, over a gas station, during a, pre-environmentally concerned era. As to the parking, I counted approx. 16 spaces, I didn't count the bicycle parking area. The old building was not architecturally, much to look at. The new building is one and a half times the size of the older one. And, in a neighborhood that includes two universities, numerous grammar schools and two high schools, it's only right that the library reflect the educational facilities available. And in a purely personal view; we live in a middle income, somewhat overlooked area. For us to be gifted with this is just wonderful. I am very much looking forward to the opening, as I use the library often, and live just a block away. So if it is, as you say a bonanza, let's enjoy it!

Just a heads up: twice in the past two days I have seen the same crazy guy yelling at people and walking into traffic. Last evening around 9 pm he was on the corner of Kimball and Montrose. He downed a can of soda (?), crumpled it up, threw it on the ground and then crossed Montrose against the light yelling the whole time. Then today at about noon he did the exact same thing at Lawrence and Kezie. I had a run in with this guy about two years ago - when he got too close to me I told him not to touch me and he screamed threateningly at me and followed us a little ways down the street (I learned my lesson and ignore him now). I don't know what can be done about him... I just hope he doesn't end up hurting anyone.

  • Tas if you are speaking to me, then yes, reading is fundamental. You should try it sometime.

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.

Apartment searching

Looking for an apartment/condo/townhouse in the Albany Park/North Park/Mayfair area. 1100-1350 is our price range. We need at least a two bedroom/ 1 bathroom but ideally we would like to rent a 2 bedroom/ 1.5 bathroom, with a dinning room. Must allow dogs. Our move in date is anywhere between August 15th and September 1st. There are four of us, 2 adults and 2 young children, plus the dog. We are very responsible and quiet tenants, with steady employment, no real debt (other than student loans), no record of being evicted, no criminal record, etc. If anyone knows of a place, preferably north of Lawrence, West of Kedzie that might work, please let me know. Thanks.

    If you listen to the police scanner for the 16th/17th police districts you will hear first hand how overworked and understaffed our police force is. At any time of the day officers are responding to a nonstop barrage of 911 calls concerning very mundane issues right through to life-threatening beatings and robberies. It seems to be a constant, never ending cycle:

    elderly well-being checks,
    double-parked car preventing a school bus from getting through,
    home and business burglary alarms,
    domestic disputes,
    neighbor disputes,
    suspicious activity in the alley,
    missing children,
    persons off their medication and acting dangerously,
    robbery at gun-point in a convenience store,
    threats of suicide,
    reckless drivers,
    loud music and parties,
    illegally parked cars,
    gang activity,
    more gang activity,
    and even more gang activity,
    disputes between retail business owners and customers,
    child custody issues,
    landlord and tenant issues,
    auto hit-and-runs,
    aggressive panhandlers,
    gunfire,
    suspicious car occupants,
    sex in public parks

    The list goes on and on. On the weekends it's worse. Sometimes there's a backlog of calls and not enough officers to respond. And at some point during the middle of all this, police officers have to call the dispatcher to get permission to take their 30 minutes for dinner.

Turtle in the Park!

I came across this turtle crossing the path on the north side of the river, in Eugene Field Park. Shortly after, s/he went north into the nature area.

    It's not unusual for snappers to have various fresh-water mollusks attached to their carapaces (upper shell). They're often covered in algae due to their mostly sedentary bottom-dwelling ways. I've always assumed the snails and such were mostly interested in feeding on that vegetative matter. They also get leeches and, of course, those critters are after blood.

    This turtle has parasites visible on both the carapace and the soft tissue on and near its neck. I assumed they were snails when I first saw the photos, but I really can't identify them for sure, or even if they're all the same organism.

Truck parking on residential streets

From an email I got from the Illinois Secretary of State:

"Pickup trucks (vehicles with an open bed and are designed for pulling or carrying freight or cargo) are Second Division vehicles which are required to display a truck license plate.

Should you have additional questions regarding this situation, please contact the Public Inquiry Division at (217) 785-3000. They will be happy to assist you."

So why aren't these pickup trucks ticketed for parking on residential streets or for not having proper truck license plates? This is part of the reason parking is so hard to find.

    Regarding getting "handicap" plates or hang tags: You actually have to have a form completed by your doctor that says you are not able to ambulate (walk) more than a certain (very short) distance. The last time I looked into it, it was 50 feet. And just because you have one, doesn't mean there will be a spot. On the occasions I am able to go out at night and use a car, I often either get home between 6 PM and 9 PM and the surrounding area has no parking because of yet another event (every single day of the week) at Parkview Lutheran, or it is late enough that all of the spots are just taken for the night, including the metered spots in front of our building. I have to use a cane and some days I can walk farther than others. It is very difficult to bring home laundry and groceries and have to bring them from 2 or 3 blocks away making multiple trips to the car to get everything. And God help you if you try to double park while you are unloading. I have inquired about lobbying to get our street made to be permit parking at the very minimum of 6 PM to 6 AM but was told to not waste my time because the church and Alps would fight it.

Unneighborly behavior or illegal ?

Does anyone know the legalities of calling "dibs" in the summer? We have neighbors who use their two motorbikes to save a parking spot for their car every day. They are really obvious about it, and I find it obnoxious. They really have some nerve doing this. But every day, their bikes are parked on the street, spaced enough for the car. In the evening, they move one of the bikes and slide their car right in. I am going to leave a tactful note, but first I want to check out how legal this is- or is this just plain rude? Thanks!

They haven't bothered my little barky dogs either. I just wish the people actually participating in the fireworks would clean up the fireworks trash afterwards.

Harden up folks to many sensitive people out there.

    Oh yeah lets not forget everything is illegal in IL and Chicago to SPIT IN PUBLIC.

Soccer ball left in fenced yard gone by morning

I believe I know exactly who took it. There are a group of obnoxious kids, some of which live at St. Louis and Berteau, who hang around Patrick Henry elementary. They were kicking a ball around next to my house yesterday. Soccer ball gone this morning. I'm not posting this because it's a huge deal. It's just a soccer ball. But I am annoyed that someone entered my yard and took my property. We have a privacy fence on the one side. It's not easy to see even see into our yard. Unless they kicked their ball into my yard and then took our ball, too. Little punks.

  • By any chance were they a group of three bus age 12-14? We had our storage area broken into and I saw these three boys who did it. One was skinny wearing a blue t-shirt with shorts and he had a grown out faux hawk.

  • Sure enough faux hawk and friends are playing with it at this moment at the soccer pitch at Patrick Henry. I stopped and stared at faux hawk and said "Nice ball" in an icy cold voice. He thanked me. No way to prove it's ours so no point in taking it away from them. But I want them to know that I know it was them.

Police activity

A few minutes ago, a helicopter was circling and hovering over the river. It was followed by a squad car flying down my street and an officer running over the Albany Ave bridge looking for something/someone? Does anyone know what might be going on in the North Park/Albany Park area (Kedzie, Foster and the River)?
