Loud Band

I'm on th 2600 block of Lavergne, anyone else hear this loud drumming and band playing 2nite and Saturday night? Police called but no response, they never came, so now what? We tried talking to the neighbor but nothing......

  • robin in WRP Tired and Cranky

    If the neighbor is a renter, you can contact the building owner.

  • Marty92 4- yr. resident

    Send an email to the alderman and the Police Sergeant

  • I live on the 4900 block of Cornelia and I could hear it a lot more at the beginning of summer but not so much lately. Maybe cuz my air is on more now and my windows are closed... Not sure what to do about it, I can't even pinpoint where it's coming from

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

    Switching up routes is always a good practice.

Anyone know of any Zumba classes I'm able to join? I'm in Cragin and nothing ever going on around here 😞
