Which is the safer route?

Hi! I am seeking the opinions of people in my hood (North Cragin is the "new" name I've seen). My daughter will start taking the Belmont bus to Lane in the fall and I know it might seem like a small thing but I cannot figure out which is the safer stop for her to get off and walk home from...Cicero/Belmont or Lamon (accross from the DD)? We live very close to Falconer Elementary school . Cicero has more traffic..and prostitutes/johns...while Lamon is a little darker but goes past the fire station, a cops home and the school...

Thoughts? Recommendations? Thanks!!

  • Both my sons graduated from Lane, while I live further west than you, I understand your concern. I always preferred my boys took the Addison Bus in stead of the Belmont. Once off the bus near Lane, it's a further walk and kind of dark in the morning. While there...

    Both my sons graduated from Lane, while I live further west than you, I understand your concern. I always preferred my boys took the Addison Bus in stead of the Belmont. Once off the bus near Lane, it's a further walk and kind of dark in the morning. While there are plenty of other students, I just felt better that they took the Addison. As far as Lane, I never had any concern - it is a great school and I never heard of any problems. In fact, I think the size helps, in a small school people get "classified in groups" where at Lane, it's too big. She is about to start 4 fantastic years with teachers and students proud of their school. Good Luck

El Spot

Just ventured out to try the local Cuban sandwich shop on Luna and Long. I wasn't disappointed. The steak sandwich was delicious. The owners were really hospitable. Can't wait to try out the other sandwiches and their variety of Cuban coffee. So glad I went.

I hope it will entice you to visit and support our local restaurants.

block party

Do you need a permit to make a block party? And how do you go about doing it?

  • Block Parties are a great way to interact with those neighbors you really do not know much off. They are always fun and seeing the kids run around having fun with everyone is really nice to see. But, to answer your question yes you need a permit. Go to your Alderman for the paperwork and start knocking doors to get those signatures from your neighbors.

  • evam eva s, jpna member

    Hope it is not too late to start (many items the City can send may not be available, i.e. Bouncy, Canine Unit, Fire Dept. truck, etc.) The dates for block parties get registered very quickly at the beginning of the year. I don't think you need signatures from the neighbors but you should know that the majority of residents want to participate in the block party. So, quickly go to your Alderman's office and start the paperwork.
