"Neighbor" in Distress

Guy rang our bell around 10 pm, introduced himself as our neighbor, and launched into a story, which boiled down to the fact that he couldn't get into his apartment on Oakley just north of Irving Park. Asked if there was a Home Depot nearby - then asked for a ride (didn't get one). Then asked for a ladder (didn't have one).

Guy rang our bell around 10 pm, introduced himself as our neighbor, and launched into a story, which boiled down to the fact that he couldn't get into his apartment on Oakley just north of Irving Park. Asked if there was a Home Depot nearby - then asked for a ride (didn't get one). Then asked for a ladder (didn't have one). Then asked if there were any police or firemen on the block (I told him there were, but didn't know their houses). Then, finally, asked for cab fare (also denied).

I guess there's a chance this guy was on the up-and-up and having a really bad night, but this rings all kinds of warning bells for me. Anyone else encounter him?

    One time a guy somehow got through a locked door at the front of my apartment building and then was knocking on my door, saying he was a neighbor and that he was locked out of his apartment and that his girlfriend was in labor and he needed to get to the hospital. It didn't make any sense to me; he was locked out of his part of the building but he got into mine? I was in the shower at the time, and told him I couldn't help him, but I could call 911 after I dried off. I could hear the guy through the door as he left, pissed off and muttering "in the shower".

    Another time I was with my brother and we were on the ramp from lower Wacker to 290 on Christmas morning and there was a car parked on the right shoulder under the overpass and two guys were approaching my car. I slowed down for a second because I thought they were going to walk in from of my car and I was trying to figure out what was going on. I quickly thought that it was a scam, and I sped up, totally blasting both of them with a huge spray of water as my car plowed through it. My brother and I started cracking up. My other brother told me later that he'd seen these guys before and they would park in that area and then claim to have a broken down car.

    I was driving home from work about 4 months ago when a man sprinted up to my car at Ravenswood and School begging me to roll down my window. I cracked it 2 inches so he could talk and he gave me some schpiel about his daughter and how he couldn't pay for her prescription and she was so sock blah blah and he only needed $11. I decided to help him but all i had was a $20. He actually had a stack on cash in his hands (all $1's I presume) and said he would even give me change and he did. I still don't know if he was telling the truth but I felt good to help at the time. As the evening wore on I just felt like I had been taken though. It's hard to say when people are being truthful about needing help so I think I will revert to my cautious ways based on all the stories on here. Has anyone encountered the "huntchback" lady in the winter coat and shopping cart? I have seen her around for the 4 years I have lived in Roscoe. She seems harmless but does anyone know her deal?

The annual Halloween parade is coming soon and I just wanted to talk about it.
I look forward to it every October.

Has a good neighborhood vibe. Doesn't "stress" our neighborhood like Pride Parade.

CONS: Hard to know when the parade has started and ended. So it could use a little more structure. There are hardly any floats, just people walking. I can't figure out if the people walking are in the parade or just spectators walking behind.

Here's the information that I found for 2014:

FYI: I'm have no ties to the parade other than it's about a block from where I live.

  • I've always watched from Aldine/Roscoe. So, I thought it's always started at Belmont and ended somewhere north of Roscoe.

  • Have you heard about this?
    The Halsted parade organizers are calling this year's theme "FreakShow"
    Yep, they're advertising that they'll have unique drink specials, people dressed in provocative and scary outfits, and other "curiosities".
    Wow, sounds like quite an evening is in store.
    Yep.Yep.
    Yea, actually, the regulars who frequent Halsted are calling it by another name :
    "a typical evening"

Anyone know what happened to Tara (Michael Anthony/Civello Salon on Belmont)?

I desperately need my hair cut and called to make an appointment only to find out Tara has left Michael Anthony on Belmont (now called Civello Salon). I thought I had her number, but I can't find it. Does anyone have contact info for her or know what salon she went to?

  • No, clearly the catty one here is you, Graceotis. Bet people love your cynical attitude. Do you know any of your neighbors? Probably not because why bother unless you can get something out of it. I wasn't being catty at all...until now. And yes, I still don't get how one could go to the same stylist for so long and not know much about that person. Typical Chicagohead for you.

    @ Liz - Rest assured that my stylist doesn't give one care about whether or not I know her last name or not. Here are things about which she cares:

    a. arriving on time - I am never late. Ever.

    b. seeing her regularly - I see her every three weeks rain, snow, sleet, hail, sickness, health, marriage, death

    c. most importantly, tipping well - I tip her 25% every time.

    I am not friends with my stylist. I am not going to the salon to forge a friendship. We have nothing in common. She's a lovely woman who is fantastic at being a stylist and that's why I see her. I am kind to her. I am respectful of her time. I refer my friends and family to her regularly. I simply don't understand how her last name would be of any importance to me, especially since it's not publicly posted anywhere.

Be on the look out for suspicious activity like that if you live around there. I report everything I see and this was the longest period of time I waited for police to pick up or respond.
Outrageous.

Stolen packages from Ashland Ave , just north of Grace St

I had three packages that were delivered in the vestibule of my apartment (locked door with large clear glass panel). Some time yesterday in the afternoon and early evening, they were taken from behind the locked door. I'm guessing that someone was really smart about opening up a locked door that doesn't have a bolt lock and really wanted some ladies clothing. :(

    This is exactly why people should call 911 if there are people on your block buzzing every buzzer until someone lets them in.

Advice on Sealing Split-Faced Block

Hi neighbors - For those who live in a condo with split-faced block, any advice or lessons you can share on having it treated to protect against moisture? I'm on the board for a 6-unit condo with split-faced block on two sides of the building. We last had it treated in 2010, and I'm calling some contractors for quotes to get it done again in the spring. That said, I wanted to do a little research beforehand. Any information you can share on local contractors, types of sealing products, or things to ask about or watch out for would be much appreciated!

    I've had split-faced block on the lower level of my residence for 23 years and have never had it sealed. Though the blocks show some discoloration at one of the corners, I have never had it sealed and see no reason to do so. When I built it out, I had 3 mil. vapor barrier and thermax insulation placed in the firred-out void between the block and the interior drywall, which has prevented any seepage. I think sealing generally is a scam, although I understand that the block industry may have cheapened their product years ago because of all the demand.

Or roxul. or closed cell foam. if you would have used fiberglass, though... your cavity could be lined with moldy insulation by now.

    another issue that's just as likely to be cause problems is water leaking in to wall via the parapet wall. I have seen new construction condo where this was the issue more so than the split-face block itself.

    I think this is some sick trick from tire companies. I went to a local car repair place so I could have my first oil-check up, and they asked me if I wanted tires. I said no. They gave me a dirty look, and as I walked away they went into another room. I was worried about this, next week, tires slashed. Coincidence? I think not. I also think they don't need patrols. I don't want to see my favorite neighborhood turn into a cop hangout where EVERYONE is watched, i mean, don't you hate it when someone is watching over your shoulder when reading a book, or when someone won't stop asking questions when you're trying to watch a movie? I think this won't happen again, these punks wouldn't hit the same place twice. Although it does tick me off that my tires were slashed. Oh well.

  • I believe that this attack was not a conspiracy because there where also tags that said DW everywhere and eagles #2 I'm not sure what this means but it doesn't make any sense maybe everyone was angry with there neighbor or there is a slashing tire group that doesn't like tires for some reason

New Streetlights

Just installed on Greenview. I think they chose a fixture that allows too much light and glare to be undirected and so spills horizontal (Everyone's windows and eyes). Rather they should have chosen a lamp that directs the light to the ground. Also I am praying that they will paint the bright shining aluminum. The City has made so many good choices in the past regarding public fixtures. Retro and period street lamps painted monochromatic dark greens. Someone blew this one.)

Help sustain the dwindling monarch butterfly population by planting a few milkweed seeds in your garden or in any open ground near you (e.g., vacant lots, along the train tracks, in community gardens). The widespread agricultural use of herbicides that kill plants like milkweed has had a devastating impact on the monarch population, since milkweed is the only plant the monarch larvae feed on.
I will place a box of seed pods on my parkway garden at 1231 W. Addison, so help yourself to a few seeds. The large seed pods are for the common milkweed that gets about 3 feet tall and has fragrant pink flowers, while the small dark pods are from butterfly weed, another type of milkweed that has orange flowers and gets about 2 feet tall.
Conservationists are calling for a nationwide campaign to save the monarch--you can be a part of this effort. It's a great project for kids, too. Read more at http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-monarch-butterfly-herbicide-kennedy-perspec-102-20141021-story.html

  • Anita W. in Wrigleyville 30-year resident

    Fictionista: Milkweeds are annual plants that self-sow--I'm sure you've seen the pods and the little round seeds with "parachutes" attached blowing in the wind, like a larger version of dandelion seeds. I think you could hang on to the seeds and plant them in the spring (maybe in pots so they're a good size before planting outdoors) or, since naturally they'd fall to the ground now, you could plant them now. There's a ton of advice available online, like this: http://www.monarchwatch.org/milkweed/prop.htm Good luck!

  • Anita W. in Wrigleyville 30-year resident

    Sorry, forgot the second part of your question. I think butterfly weed (orange flowers) would do better in containers than ordinary milkweed, which gets to be 3-4 feet tall and tends to have just one stalk, whereas butterfly weed is shorter and bushier.
