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.

Does anyone know anything about the church at Damen and Evergreen?

I walked past it on Monday night and noticed for the first time that it's up for rent. I researched it a little bit but I can't find out anything about what happened to the church that used to be there. I guess it's called the Chicago Evangelical Missionary Society-- does anyone know where the church moved to or what became of the people that went there? When did the building go up for rent?

    Hi,

    You should delete this post. You should never talk about a pending case on the internet or anywhere else. The only person you should be talking to is your lawyer. You need a lawyer, community support won't help anything if you rely on public defenders. If you don't have a lawyer, you can find pro-bono representation here: http://apps.americanbar.org/legalservices/findlegalhelp/home.cfm

    I won't comment on specifics of seeing this group around the neighborhood causing trouble. WE also live in the neighborhood, some of us for many, many years. I see the same groups of kids smoking, swearing and even doing drug deals on the street I live on. The neighborhood has changed quite a bit in the last ten years. This behavior is not longer acceptable and overlooked. All I can say is good luck with your case and have faith in the justice system. I've known a lot of individuals who cleaned up their act from one juvenile mishap.

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    If the person who got robbed knew your son wasn't the person to rob him, then how or who identified your son?

Over Night Blue Line Construction

Our bedroom face the Western Blue Line stop. We are used to sleeping through the standard train sounds, but last night, they began night construction and we were awake for the entire thing. Although loud, the actual machinery is tolerable. What kept us up was the intermittent sound of boards or something similar being thrown from the el into large metal dumpsters on the ground. Every time I dozed off for a second, BOOM! Anyone know how long this is supposed to last? Should they be throwing materials from the tracks? I am exhausted.

  • Can you go on the website and get more information about construction?

    Sadly, city services has different 'rules' as I learned from 606. But file a complaint with the city anyway...everyone needs to sleep...
