Attempted car break in

Spotted a couple of guys (both African American early teens with short dreads) trying a couple of times to break into a newer station wagon parked on the 700 N. block of Noble St. at 6:30 pm. Called 911 and a patrol car drove by a few minutes later and spooked them off. They had been walking around the block a few times before going after this car so keep an eye out if you live in the area.

  • Pretty sure I saw these guys on the back porch of my building last night..

    Pulled up to the back of our building at Ada & Huron (parked on Ancona) where there were at least 2-3 black males on the back porch. One guy had a black cap and another had short dreads. Once they saw us pull up, they went running down the gangway between the buildings and hid by our side door (where we were heading). Called the cops but they never showed up..

  • Jon Banks supervisor banks

    I've seen two men fitting that description around Eckhart Park (Elizabeth St., Noble St & Chestnut St) looking into parked cars for the past week. I've a called the police each time.

  • DA long time neighbor

    I saw these 2 guys Mon nite on the 800 block of Noble around 10pm. They were just standing there with no real purpose 2 be there as I know everyone on this block and they don't live there. These 2 soon crossed the street into Eckhart Pk so couldn't c where they went. B careful everyone!

Phone Scam / Harassment?

I just received a very strange call that I'm not sure what to make of. A man, who sounded black, very angry, said that I scratched his car and that I left my phone number on his car. For the record, I did not scratch anyone's car and I did not leave my phone number on anyone's car. When I started to explain that I did not scratch his car or leave my phone number on his car, his anger...

When I started to explain that I did not scratch his car or leave my phone number on his car, his anger escalated. I just hung up. He has not called back (so far).

Not even sure if I should report this to the police. Is this some sort of a scam? The phone number he was calling from is (312) 423-1221.

Just a heads up to you, my neighbors.

More Parks Please

In the article, Mr. Chacon doesn't mention new parks or green space. That should be a top priority for everyone who is invested in this neighborhood. http://www.chicagoarchitecture.org/2014/12/08/state-of-the-west-loop-development-from-the-pov-of-the-west-central-association-president/

  • Shannon - the WCA is a Chamber of Commerce and isn't directly representing residents as much as promoting business. If you want to get involved as a resident, there's groups such as Neighbors of West Loop which represent people like myself who live in this area. I know I've worked with them, and the predecessor organization, over the years (I'm a 14+ year resident in FRDA) to push for green space in our community, especially when a new development is approved.

Shooting

1470 block of West Ohio Street at 730pm yesterday there was a silver/ gray Toyota 4Runner who fired about 5-6 rounds. I'm not sure who they were shooting at. Cops were called but I don't know what the outcome was. It's not the first time that a shooting took place in the area, but it's scary that it seems to be happening earlier in the evenings. So please be careful out there.

Car (neatly) broken into

Last night our car got "broken into" for the 2nd time this year. It's parked behind our condo building on Walton (Walton & Noble approx), in our designated parking space. This happened earlier this year, and what was interesting was that there was absolutely no damage to the car, so we thought we had just accidentally left the car unlocked. Since then, we've been extremely careful about making sure our car is locked after we park it. Well, it happened again last night with no damage. Nothing was stolen since we don't keep valuables in our car, but they did make a mess. Has this been happening to anyone else on Walton or in the area?

  • We had something similar in July - came home to our garage door open (no visible damage) and no damage to the cars. Things they could grab in the garage were stolen. Like you, nothing valuable is in there now. When we called the police, they said it was the third time that week that they had a similar report.

  • Please report the crime so we can have the cops due surveillance throughout the night... Thanks

  • The Fox & The Hounds F&H: Chicago's only Burlesque Rock N' Roll Band

    This happened twice to my boyfriend's car as well (Walton and Rockwell). They mostly just rummaged around and took loose change and his phone charger.

Cats living in apartment basement

I went to turn the lights off after People's Gas came to check on the meters. When I went down, I found that there are two cats living in the unfinished basement of the small walkup. They are coming in and out through a broken vent. When I found them, they quickly ran out of the room and huddled outside staring back at me. When I went outside, they were behind the neighbor's apartments together. They've since left. They look...

I went to turn the lights off after People's Gas came to check on the meters. When I went down, I found that there are two cats living in the unfinished basement of the small walkup. They are coming in and out through a broken vent. When I found them, they quickly ran out of the room and huddled outside staring back at me. When I went outside, they were behind the neighbor's apartments together. They've since left. They look well fed, but I'm thinking that they're feral. I don't know if they're lost cats; they didn't appear to have collars. There was at least one mouse/rat carcass in the basement.

I feel bad because it's cold out and they are surviving, but I don't want them to multiply and give birth in my apartment complex. Plus, it's easy for them to come up to the rest of the floors.

Does anyone have any advice for these cats? Who should I contact? My landlord?

  • Wendi on Maud Interested in local news

    If the cats are feral and have been spayed/neutered, the left ear has been "tipped". If not, Tree House Humane Society can help. Thanks for posting and asking for help!

Referrals Please for Snow Removal and Window Washer

We are a 9 unit residential building and looking for a snow removal and window washer service. We are located in east village. Any referrals would be much appreciated.

  • Hi, Scott at Urban Street Window Works is great. He's cleaned my windows twice for me. Very professional and great price. I've only used him in my condo but I'm sure he would do a building. I received a referral for him off this site. Thanks!

Starbucks girl, where are you?

I haven't been able to stop thinking about you since you caught me stealing glances of your reflection on the window. You are the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. With your curly auburn hair and bright smile that I couldn't stop sneaking peaks at, you stole my heart. I'll watch your bag anytime. Will you watch mine?

Tall, auburn haired, long-legged beauty in your brown boots and knit wrap, please find me.

If you were at the Starbucks on Randolph & Morgan on Tuesday night, know that I wish I'd said more to you.

Audible from near Race and Damen, but no idea about direction. I haven't heard any sirens yet, and I'm not exactly standing in the window to look out to see what might be going on.

  • Well, there is one less drug dealer on the street after the cops shot the dealer who tried run over a gang enforcement officer last week.

    This incident also is proof that the police are arresting dealers in the area.

Mail Only Delivering Every Other Day

I live in 60622, 2400 block of W Haddon. Is anyone else in the area noticing a pattern where mail is only being delivered every other day or so?

    I contacted a representative from Mike Quigley's office about the post office in 60622 and some missing packages. Since the PO is a federal thing, they are the ones to handle it. Melanie from his office was super nice and very helpful and damned if I didn't get a phone call several times from the "fine" people at the post office, explaining that they delivered it. (Whatever, don't believe them and don't expect to get my packages but do like to rat them out and have someone up top know they suck). Here is the contact for Rep. Quigley's office that made stuff happen. I encourage one and all to call them and make your own complaints:

When the cops showed up they all ran. With the exception of about 15 stragglers who wanted to give lip to the cops. I know that about 5 of the kids live in section 8 housing within two blocks of my apartment. Is there a way I can report their activity anonymously to the CHA? I also have an issue with the amount of trash I see on a daily basis, broken glass, discarded food and plastic bags . I pick up when I see it but maybe more trash cans at the end of the block would help curb the problem.

  • Em Ro evening is the whole day

    Every single time you see ANYTHING, call 311 or 911.

    The # of police calls to certain areas are tracked and the more you call and report things, the more patrols will be send to the area just to drive around.

    It's so unfortunate that kids have nothing better to do.

Rash of stolen packages

Hi neighbors - I know this has been a recurring problem in our hood but it's reakky gotten out of control. Finally had to move all my deliveries to my downtown office which is a huge inconvenience. Literally the latest package lasted an hour after delivery and by the time I get home, gate wide open, no package.

At Iowa/Honore. Keep your eyes open as my guess it people are following delivery trucks around - wether fedex, ups or usps.

  • the only thing I have delivered to my home is cat litter

  • well same as well and I just want to let everyone know that I'm in the same boat. A huge inconvenience but our postal system can't be trusted to put the packages out of sight (like over a locked gate- not a big deal) and neither can the neighbors/non-neighbors. I feel like this is the time of year it starts. My package delivered on 11-21 around noon was stolen. Division/Damen area. pathetic.
