    This "Airborn" fellow has posted very similar ads in Bucktown (looking for house in Bucktown) and Lakeview (looking for house in Lakeview) sections of EB too. Not sure what his or her agenda is, but surely finding a realtor in Chicago shouldn't be a problem. EB is not the right forum for this.

Trees chopped down

Trees are being taken down in the Fremont and Wisconsin area. Does anyone know why? I have not yet heard back from the Alderman's office.

  • Same thing happened over on Belden. I tried calling and writing the Alderman to see if they will at least be replacing the trees. I understand the Ash disease, but it's now been over a year and it's just stumps everywhere. I have yet to hear from the Alderman.

  • Here's what I heard from the Alderman's office:
    Thank you for your email. Alderman Smith does not grant approvals or permits for tree removals, as the Bureau of Forestry is charged with inspecting trees for potential disease and removing as is deemed appropriate. That being said, we have contacted the Bureau of Forestry for an update on the tree that was removed, and will also input a request with the Bureau of Forestry for replacement of the tree this spring.

NY Wing Factory

Boots on Cars

I've notice a drastic increase in boots on cars in the past week. Does anyone know what caused this spike? A friend of mine got one and only had 1 outstanding ticket. Please be careful and pay your tickets

  • sos

    City changed law a long time ago, it only takes one ticket to get a boot. the booters go in waves.

  • I just went to the City of Chicago website referring to the boot and it said 3 or more tickets. Where is the info regarding just one ticket? That is a shock. Thanks for the info...

  • sos

    It was ten or so years ago it was changed to one ticket, maybe it has been rolled back to three tickets.

Police - Belden/Clark

Driving north on Clark I saw 3 undercover police cars parked with their lights flashing at the intersection of Belden & Clark. One looked as though it had pulled over a CTA bus. Does anyone know what happened?

Aluminum Coating for Flat Roof

I have a 2007 new build (the standard issue brick rectangle) with a flat roof (that has what I believe is the original aluminum coating on the roof). I have started getting estimates for the application of a new layer of aluminum coating on the roof and the estimates ($1200+) strike me as a bit high for what I understand the service to entail (broom clean and application of one coat of aluminum coating). I would greatly appreciate thoughts on (1) how much this service should cost (Angie's List is not helping me here) and/or (2) whether most people just do this themselves. Thanks in advance!

    Jerry Morrison the SEIU's CHIPOLCON discovered the Giant Peach was grown at James the 1%er's non-UFW orchard. It's obvious that the purpose of his post is to rally the masses to forcibly confiscate James' property & send him to the gulag. The orchard, & the Giant Peach will be a Gift to the proletariat.

Garage Break In

Just wanted to let others know in the neighborhood to be vigilant about keeping their garages secure. Last evening, our garage in the 2700 block of N. Wilton was broken into. It is believed that the suspect entered through an unlocked (or not completely shut door), stole property, and put the property in a waiting assistant's vehicle in the alley.

I have made a police report, but wanted to make others aware to be more careful.
