Have you witnessed/been in an accident at North/Milwaukee/Damen?

Hello!

I'm a reporter for DNAinfo Chicago and a MA journalism student at DePaul.

I'm working on a story on the top 3 most dangerous intersections in Chicago, and North/Milwaukee/Damen tops of the list.

If you've witnessed or been in an accident (or close call) at North/Milwaukee/Damen, can you please message me? Email would be preferred at mina.bloom24@gmail.com.

Also feel free to call/text me at 847-370-9735.

Thanks in advance! I really appreciate your help.

  • I reached out to ATA to confirm, but I know the Chicago Tribune has them ranked that way as well:

    "The three most dangerous intersections in Chicago were Milwaukee/Damen/North; Cicero and Chicago avenues on the West Side; and Halsted Street/Lincoln Avenue/Fullerton Parkway in Lincoln Park."

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-most-dangerous-intersections-met-20141014-story.html

  • Thanks for the swift response. I had skimmed the trib article and must have blipped over their number.
    I would like to see their source data. That number would indicate either an annual accident rate at Milwaukee and Damen spiked between 2010-2013 to 250% of that in the city's 2011...

    Thanks for the swift response. I had skimmed the trib article and must have blipped over their number.
    I would like to see their source data. That number would indicate either an annual accident rate at Milwaukee and Damen spiked between 2010-2013 to 250% of that in the city's 2011 report for 2005-2009,
    or some data that indicates that 25%-40% of the accidents in Logan, Bucktown and Wicker Park go unreported, while at Ashland and 63rd, or Dearborn and Ontario, no such gap exists.

    In any case I look forward to your article

Mike Brown demonstration last night on Milwaukee

Did anyone else catch the demonstration last night (Tue, Oct. 28) or have more information about the group that staged it? They were on Milwaukee Ave. around 9:30 pm.

  • I'm curious as well ... people were marching north on Milwaukee to North; Police had the street shut down for a while ...

  • Mark (on Huron) (Happy neighbor, Official candidate, IL. St. Rep)

    Yeah--thanks for blocking the streets and giving the hard working police offices yet more disrespect. I, for one, am getting pretty tired of hearing negative things about our police officers. They deserve WAYY more love and appreciation than they do.

Hit and run accident Damen and Augusta Oct 22, 745 AM

Hi everybody,
My girlfriend and I were involved in a three car accident Wednesday morning where the driver at fault left the scene in which injuries were sustained. The offender was a white woman in her forties, overweight, with short hair, driving an early 2000's Lincoln continental or similar vehicle. Her vehicle has extensive damage to the front and should need repair. Any help tracking her down would be greatly rewarded. Thanks!!!

  • Check the auto-repair shops in whichever part of the city and surrounding it happened in. Tell whoever you speak to you'll give them a $100 reward (and then do it). Find the lady and make her pay. Dire consequences for hit and run.

  • Vehicle color?

Masonry

Does anyone know the name of the masonry contractor that constructed several brick walls around exterior stairs about a month ago on WABANSIA (2200 West- I think)? We'd like to do a similar project.

  • I don't know that project, but we used AAA Masonary for tuckpointing and another project. Robert (the owner) is super knowledgeable and they do fantastic work. I would recommend them for any brick work

  • Strong Pritzker school mom

    Thank you for the recommendation

  • If you are still looking give me a call for an estimate. Have over 30 years experience worked with every type of stone in Ireland and in business over 23 years in Chicago. McDonald Construction licensed and insured. Michael McDonald 773 203-3019

Car horn in Wicker/West Town

Curious to know if anyone heard that car horn going off for about 10 mins. It wasn't an alarm, just a constant blaring on and off. Happened around midnight, sounds like near Wood and Augusta.

  • In the off chance it was someone signalling for help, always call 911. Better safe than sorry.

10th Annual Bucktown APple Pie Contest

Hello everyone,

I posted this an event, though it looks like it's buried, and it's not showing up on the calendar. I wanted to post here so that anyone interested might see it.

We're still looking for contestants for the 10th Annual Bucktown Apple Pie Contest. It's a great neighborhood event that benefits a beautiful local park and fieldhouse. It would be great if you could attend, but if you participate? Hoo boy. There will be a place in apple pie valhalla reserved for you.

http://www.bucktownapplepiecontest.com/event-registration/

Let me know if there are any questions. We really hope to see you there, one way or another.
