NBC News video of Pawn Shops in 30th Ward

This video from a story NBC5 news did, is for anyone who cares about the 30th ward. It was shared with me recently regarding the politics of this ward and the impact of too many pawn shops in neighborhoods. Copy and paste in your browser to watch. It is deplorable.

/www.nbcchicago.com/investigations/Residents-Fight-Pawn-Shop-in-War-of-Words-215934841.html

  • Kelly, if you want more exposure on EB for your posts, try posting in a wider location. You can post to a whole ward or zip code for example. This post you made is only showing up in Cragin, so only people who follow or check on Cragin will see it. That's probably a pretty small number of people compared to zip codes or wards.

  • I don't know how to do that! But would love it if you could copy and post to wards/zip codes that may be affected, if it is no trouble. Thanks

New Grocery Store just South of Diversey on Laramie's East side.

From the signage on the new awnings installed on the building at the SE corner of Diversey and Laramie it looks like we're getting a new grocery store there called Pancho's. What's odd is there are still "For Rent" signs in the windows.

  • Kapel Local Resident

    Is there any word on when this new store will be opening, or did they run into a problem?

  • I walked by yesterday (Thurs) & noticed the permits were pulled 2 years ago......Not very promising.

Sol De Mexico recommended

We may not be considered an entertainment district with a lot of great restaurants and pubs like Edison Park or Logan Square but we have a restaurant of entertainment district quality in our midst. We tried Sol De Mexico last night and were very impressed and will definitely go back. The food was above average and so was the Tequila :-)

    I was told last week by the Alderman's office(Suarez) that apparently the location of the new Senor Pan was zoned residential (How the heck that is, I'll never understand) & there were some "zone issues" that have been taken care of. It won't be a dine in, but carry out only. Fine with me! Thanks for the 6 corner referral. Been to Percolator & Harding Tap as well. LOVED Percolator, not so impressed w/Harding Tab but what do I know? I absolutely love Dunlays in Logan Sq. A great atmosphere, drink & food. Feels like "Cheers" (if you go there too much I suppose) Would love more great places to walk to in Belmont/Cragin. The Starlight at Central/Fullerton is a nice coffee shop/cheap food place. Not a Mom & Pop feel, but local & good none-the-less. I appreciate Mexican food, but would like more variety here~

    Chicagonewbie, I guess this is what my neighbors were referring to regarding Senor Pan. There was a lot of work put into that building last summer to convert it from a closed front knife sharpening business back to storefronts which was how the building was originally built. What seems really strange is how this building could have been zoned "Residential" when there was a business there for over 30 years. Dine in would be nice but "carry out" will be good too, as long as they can open up. Percolator is always a good stop for a snack before seeing a movie or event at The Patio Theater, gotta love their soups. Harding Tap, along with other Logan Square establishments, is usually a good burger and beer stop before a movie at the Logan. Did a lot of stops at Harding last spring when the Logan was screening the Blackhawks playoffs games. Haven't been to Starlight since our son went to Prosser HS, but it was always good. We'll have to try Dunlay's sometime. Hopefully the Hawks will be in the playoffs again and the Logan will screen the games again and we'll stop for a snack there before the game. I agree, the Mexican food in the area is great, we love Zacateca's on Diversey. But we miss having some culinary variety in the neighborhood.

If anyone witnessed the hit and run to a burgundy Saturn SL series about 7:00pm Intersection of Fletcher and Lockwood please call 773-794-8764 - I was stopped waiting for a pedestrian in a striped shirt crossing the intersection kiddie corner (diagonally) when I was walloped from behind - then dark SVU took off speeding north Lockwood to the alley where he did over 60 - could not catch him - Called 911 and dispatcher told me to sit tight - 1/2 hour later still no police so I called again new dispatcher told me to go to Police Station. Went to Grand and Central walked in - office asked how can I help you told her Hit and Run, when they all had a chuckle because there have been so many today. My poor Saturn bumper all tore up - neck hurts, arm hurts from shock I had both hands on the wheel. - Many times I have stopped for people in accidents and given plate numbers I am hoping that this time I get pay back. It appeared to have two people in front seat - dirty plate - has to have some front bumper damage. Thanks

And oh yeah I complained to police about the dispatcher. Police said dispatcher should have said to drive over right away. She said "They're not cops they got their jobs due to alderman" Can't wait for Millie to be my new alderman - This ward needs a fresh start and lots and lots of reform.

  • I was in a similar situation when I was hit. He stopped and I cut him off . It turns out he was an illegal, no insurance, no licsense, and could not speak English. I called ICE and the took him away in chains. The CPD gave him a few tickets and he will be deported. The area you describe is full of law breaking people. Good Luck.

  • Guarantee he will not be deported!

    Things like this should be brought up at Thursday's candidate for 31st ward alderman debate at NW Community church on Diversey:
